US Nintendo eShop update: Guacamelee STCE, Squids Odyssey

No cross-buy for North American Squids players

Guacamelee: Super Turbo Championship Edition brings Metroid-inspired lucha libre action to Wii U as part of this week's US eShop Update.

The side-scrolling beat-em-up uses the GamePad for off-screen play or to let players consult the map without pausing their game.

Strategy RPG Squids Odyssey hits 3DS in North America, though developer The Game Bakers has confirmed that the Wii U cross-buy option for 3DS customers will remain exclusive to Europe.
