US Nintendo eShop update: Blok Drop U, NES Open

All this week's new digital downloads

New entries to Nintendo's US eShop this week include an original block-tapping puzzler and the progenitor of Mario Golf.

NES Open Tournament Golf offers updated mechanics and visuals over old-fashioned NES Golf, including a new view on courses and appearances by Mario, Luigi, Princess Peach, and Princess Daisy.

Blok Drop U challenges players to drop a tiny cube into safety by destroying the physics-enabled blocks supporting it.


Here's the full official list:
