Beat up countless anime baddies, enjoy the antics of a homicidal bear and shark, and prepare to have your toughness tested by a deceptively cutesy dungeon crawler.

Thursday has once again arrived and, as always, it brings with it another wave of bandwidth-consuming goodies for Nintendo’s slew of online shops.

First up on Wii U is Tecmo Koei’s Fist of the North Star: Ken’s Rage 2, the latest combination of the classic old-school anime about post-apocalyptic martial artists who can make people explode and the Warriors games which have always been about throwing hundreds of helpless enemies at the player to be mercilessly slaughtered. In other words, it’s a combination that makes quite a lot of sense. Seeing as how this is a full retail release on other consoles, it is also demanding a full retail price of $59.99.

The 3DS eShop is seeing a lot more attention than its Wii U counterpart this week. Three previously released retail titles are jumping on the digital bandwagon; Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell 3D, Rayman 3D, and Pro Evolution Soccer 2013 3D are all leaving the world of physical media behind. RPG fans will be pleased to know that Etrian Odyssey IV: Legends of the Titan has received a demo before its upcoming release, so now you can see whether or not you have the means to survive its unique brand of relentlessly difficult dungeon exploration before parting with your cash. Should you decide you like the pain, you’ll be pleased to know that demo progress will apply to the final product.

DSiWare is also getting a bit of attention this week in the form of Ah! Heaven. A vertically-scrolling platformer will probably appeal to some simply for its modest price of only 200 Nintendo Points.

And finally in world of moving pictures there is BearShark, an animated College Humor production that chronicles a bear and shark duo’s endless efforts to terrorize one man.

Be sure to check back to see what else Nintendo is sending our way through this wonderful series of tubes we call the Internet.
