Nintendo unveils“Nintendo Life Summer Picks” 3DS eShop Shelf

Loughborough, UK, 26th July 2012: Nintendo Life, a world-leading Nintendo-focused website, is proud to announce that it has again been selected by Nintendo of America to provide recommended downloads on its 3DS eShop.

Just in time for summer, the“Nintendo Life Summer Picks” shelf went live today in the 3DS eShop in North America, where it will run for one week. This dedicated store shelf highlights 20 must-have summer downloads that have been hand-picked by four of Nintendo Life's knowledgeable and experienced contributors: Features Editor Thomas Whitehead, Downloads Editor Corbie Dillard, US Reviewer Philip J Reed and Euro Reviewer Marcel van Duyn.

"Following the success of our last eShop shelf, it’s been a great honour to have the opportunity to work again with Nintendo of America on Nintendo Life’s Summer Picks promotion,” said Nintendo Life Operations Director Darren Calvert.“We feel our staff choices represent some of the best games available for download on 3DS, and great value for money. We hope everyone will be able to find games on the shelf that they can enjoy."

Nintendo Life Features Editor Thomas Whitehead added:“Our first shelf predominantly featured DSiWare titles, and it shows how far the eShop library has come that the focus this time is mostly on 3DS exclusives and the Virtual Console. The list features a variety of 3D and 2D classics, extremely challenging but satisfying indie games such as VVVVVV and titles with a very broad appeal, such as Bird Mania 3D and Colors! 3D.”
