After going HAM for several weeks straight on the eShop, it seems Nintendo of America is returning the 3DS download service to its pre-summer routine, releasing only a handful of forgettable items every seven days. This week: adventure game The Lost Town - The Jungle on DSiWare, and … 3D Solitaire on eShop.
There’s still the aforementioned sale for Game Boy’s Super Mario Land ($2.99), but it appears that eShop’s Weekend Sales have been discontinued. And it looks the days of two weekly Virtual Console releases are over, too.
You know that feeling you get, when school’s about to begin again, and you realize everything that’s been great about the last few months of your life, your summer of no responsibilities or limits, is about to end? That ache in your heart, that wish that nothing would ever change again — you could lay in someone’s arms forever, sleeping in every morning and having an adventure every day?
Who knows if the eShop will ever return to its July glory? All we can do is hope Nintendo of America remembers how much we appreciated it, and remembers to chase that summer feeling, that summer feeling.
“When you’re hanging around the park with the water fountain
And there’s the little girl with the dirty ankles cuz she’s
On the swings, you know, and all the dust is kicking up
And you remember the ankle locking
And the way she flirted with you
For all this time, how come?
Well that summer feeling is gonna haunt you
One day in your life.
You’ll throw away everything for it.
You’ll throw away everything for it.”
