Castlevania: Lords of Shadow – Mirror of Fate leads another week of Nintendo eShop downloads. The full game will launch along with boxed code, as well as digital downloads of Nano Assault EX and Metal Slug 4.

First up is Castlevania: Lords of Shadow – Mirror of Fate on 3DS. The full game can be your from March 5th in the States, and March 8th across Europe. You can download it digitally for €44.99 / £39.99.

Also on 3DS is Nano Assault EX, a handheld edition of the Wii U shooter. Fans of Geometry Wars should definitely give this a whirl. It can be yours digitally for €14.99 / £12.49.

Natsume’s Legend of the River King also hits the 3DS eShop at just €4.99 / £4.49. It casts you as a fisherman tasked with saving his sick sister by angling his way through the plot.

Finally, Metal Slug 4 launches on Wii Virtual Console at 900 Nintendo Points. It’s a side-scrolling shooter that originally launched on Neo Geo and in arcades. It’s a solid entry to the series, but not as good as the first three. Fans should still check it out though.

That’s all. What do you think? Does anything stand out?
