US Nintendo eShop update: Wooden Sen'SeY, Siesta Fiesta

NES tank platformer Blaster Master hits 3DS

Wooden Sen'SeY and Siesta Fiesta lead this week's US eShop update with their own goofy takes on established gaming conventions.

Challenging platformer Wooden Sen'SeY lets players hone their hop-and-bop technique with a variety of weapons and grappling hooks on Wii U. And on 3DS, Siesta Fiesta sets familiar Breakout-style gameplay moving with changing stages, special power-ups, and boss battles.
