Welcome everybody to another installment of what’s new in the world of Nintendo Downloads. We are in for another dose of sensory overload today because there are so many titles available for purchase that it will make your head spin, in a good way. Luckily there are plenty of potentially awesome experiences here, so getting bored fast is something that just simply isn’t going to happen. Keeping this mind, let’s see which game made the cut, shall we?
My pick for Nintendo Download of the Week is Gunman Clive 2 for the 3DS Download Service. It has an ESRB rating of T for Teen, and is currently available for download in the eShop at the asking price of $2.99. The reason why I picked this one was because the original was one of my favorite platformers of 2012, and hopefully this one will be just as great as it’s predecessor was. If you feel the same way I do, then by all means download this title as soon as possible.
Not up for a trip to the old west, don’t worry, there are still three new Wii U Download titles, one new Wii U VC title, eight discounted Wii U titles, three new 3DS Download titles, one new 3DS VC title, two discounted 3DS titles, one new 3DS Demo, and two new 3DS themes available for download. Relive some of Samus Aran’s greatest adventures in Metroid Prime Trilogy ($9.99 until Feb 5th, then $19.99). Check out another Flappy Bird clone when playing Frenchy Bird. See how much fun Matchbox cars can be in Rock n Racing Off-Road. Move around in the shadows to become victorious in Shadow of the Ninja (3DS version also available). Your eight discounted Wii U titles are Stealth Inc. 2: A Game of Clones (discounted until Feb. 12th), Thomas Was Alone (discounted until Feb. 12th), Blok Drop U ($1.99 until March 25th), Blok Drop X Twisted Fusion ($1.99 until March 25th), Toss N Go ($0.99 until March 25th), Spikey Walls ($0.99 until March 25th), Shut The Box ($0.99 until March 25th), and Poker Dice Solitaire Future ($0.99 until March 25th).
As usual, one paragraph won’t do it, so here we go. Get a double dose of puzzles when playing Sumico and Jewel Quest: The Sapphire Dragon. Try to hit the target safely in Drop Zone: Under Fire. Your two discounted 3DS titles are Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles ($14.99 until Feb. 5th) and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Danger of the Ooze ($14.99 until Feb. 5th). Your new 3DS Demo is for the game Code Name S.T.E.A.M.. Finally, your two 3DS themes are Mario’s Mighty Mustache ($1.99), and Luigi’s Mighty Mustache ($1.99).
One more thing, the third week of the throwback sale is underway, and there are six more discounted titles available for download. They are Metroid Prime Trilogy ($9.99), Metroid for 3DS VC ($3.49), Super Mario Kart ($5.49), Mario Kart 8 ($44.99), Mario Golf World Tour ($22.49), and Mario Golf for 3DS VC ($2.49). The sale lasts until Feb. 5th, so get these games while you can.
All of this, and more, can be found in the Wii U and 3DS eShops right now, have fun!
