Nintendo Download of the Week: This Looks Familiar

Hello everybody, welcome to another installment of what’s new in the world of Nintendo Downloads. Today’s offerings feel like you are taking a trip to a bargain bin at a video game store, because almost everything here consists of older titles at discounted prices. Even though this is true, there are still a few interesting experiences here that might be worth playing. Let’s take a moment now to see if that statement actually holds any water, shall we?

My pick for Nintendo Download of the Week is XeoDrifter for the 3DS Download Service. It has an ESRB rating of E for Everyone, and is currently available for download in the eShop at the asking price of $9.99. The reason why I chose this one was because the developer (Renegade Kid) made Mutant Mudds, and if this is anywhere near as fun as that was, then I am in for a real treat. If you feel the same way I do, then by all means download this title as soon as possible.

Not in the mood for some space exploration, don’t worry, there is still one new Wii U Download title, one new Wii U VC title, two new Wii U Download titles, seven discounted Wii U titles, four new 3DS Download titles, one new 3DS VC title, eight new 3DS Retail titles, three new 3DS Demos, and nine discounted 3DS titles available for download. Try not to bluff when playing Lucadian Chronicles. Show off your street smarts in Crash n’ The Boys Street Challenge. Get a double dose of one of the most popular games ever made in Angry Birds Star Wars, and Angry Birds Trilogy (both also available on 3DS). Your seven discounted Wii U titles are Another World: 20th Anniversary Edition (more than 50% off for 3DS and Wii U Dec. 12th-24th), How To Train Your Dragon 2 (discounted on 3DS and Wii U from Dec. 16th- Jan. 14th), Disney Planes: Fir and Rescue (discounted on 3DS and Wii U from Dec. 16th- Jan. 14th), Blok Drop U ($0.99 until Jan. 7th), Poker Dice Solitaire Future ($0.69 until Jan. 7th), Shut the Box ($0.69 until Jan. 7th), and Spikey Walls ($0.69 until Jan. 7th).

As usual, one paragraph won’t do it, so here we go. See where this lawyer’s adventure began when playing Ace Attorney Trilogy. Put those critical thinking skills to the test in Hazumi. Enjoy some classic tunes on the go in My First Songs 2. Before going on a trip to another country, be sure sure to brush up on it’s vocabulary in Talking Phrasebook: 7 Languages. The addictive farming journey continues in Harvest Moon 3. Get a double of scariness in Moshi Monsters: Katsuma Unleashed and Moshi Monsters: Moshling’s Theme. Engage in a robot war for the ages in Transformers: Dark of the Moon: Stealth Force Edition. See just how crazy a game show can get when playing Wipeout 2. Find out just how great of a parent you really are in I Love My Little Boy and I Love My Little Girl (demos for each of these games, and I Love My Horse are available right now as well). Finally, the  other six discounted 3DS titles are Woah Dave! ($0.99 Dec. 15th- Jan. 2nd), Rage of the Gladiator (discounted until Jan. 8th), Monster Shooter (discounted until Jan. 8th), Steel Empire ($15.99 until Jan. 15th), Darts Up 3D (discounted until Jan. 8th), and Soccer Up 3D (discounted until Jan. 8th).

All of this, and more, are currently available for download in the Wii U and 3DS eShops right now, have fun!
