Hmm. Nothing for me this week.

I'd try Super Mario Run, but I probably can't fit both that and Fire Emblem Heroes on my phone's tiny, bloatware-infested internal memory at the same time. And Fire Emblem Heroes won't let me move its 400+MB of data to the MicroSD, it has to stay on the phone, which sucks.

Is that Game Boy Kid Icarus game worthwhile at all? Better than the NES one?

If this were Club Nintendo, it would have been free... :(

@Mop it up It WAS free on Club Nintendo. That's where I got it from!

I don't know if I'd say it's "better" than the NES game, but it's less frustrating. It's fine, nothing special from what I remember.

I got it free back on CN. Better? Debatable. But like @nate38 said, it's much less frustrating than the original. You can fall down and survive!

@Mop it up

Yes it's better than the original.

They should celebrate the 5th anniversary of Uprising with Kid Icarus 4.

Or a WiiU/Switch port of KIU with motion controls.

Anyone able to get to the Switch eShop? Mine's erroring out like crazy right now, wondering if it's on my end or if anyone else is having trouble.

Worked just fine for me just now. Love how quick it is honestly.

Thanks. It's probably something messed up with my WiFi I'll have to take a look at.
