For what it lacks in quantity, this weeks update makes up for in absolute quality with the 3DS getting possibly what will be two of the best games to hit the eShop. Crimson Shroud is a Level 5 developed RPG that was part of the Guild01 compilation upon it's release in Japan. So Level 5 right? They're good. But what about Yasumi Matsuno, he's made such games as Vagrant Story previously. So if you're a traditional JRPG fan this one is for you.
Next up is Nintendo's own Hydroventure: Spin Cycle. It's a follow up of a WiiWare game of the same name. It's a water based physics puzzle and if the WiiWare version is anything to go by this one too will be excellent. Both of the above titles are pushing $10, but if you were going to spend that much on the eShop it might as well be on these two. (or Crashmo, that's awesome too).
Wii U owners aren't left out though, there's a 577mb Rayman Legends demo up on the eShop to check out. It features three different style levels of the game that will eventually be released in late February. What have you got to lose?
