Nintendo eShop sales:

Also new this week:

In addition to video games available at retail stores, Nintendo also
offers a variety of content that people can download directly to their
systems. Nintendo adds new games weekly to Nintendo eShop on the Wii U
console, the Nintendo 3DS family of systems and the Wii Shop
Channel for the Wii console.

Nintendo eShop is a cash-based service that features a wide variety of
content, including new and classic games, applications and demos. Users
can add money to their account balances by using a credit card or
purchasing a Nintendo eShop Card at a retail store and entering the code
from the card. All funds from one card must be loaded in Nintendo eShop
on either Wii U or the Nintendo 3DS family of systems, but can be used
in either Nintendo eShop if the systems are linked to a single Nintendo
Network account.

The Wii Shop Channel offers games and applications and uses Wii Points,
which can be purchased via the Wii Shop Channel. The Nintendo DSi
Shop offers games and applications and uses Nintendo DSi Points.
