Nintendo Download of the Week: 7/14 Edition

Just seems like the handheld market is exactly where Nintendo wants to flex it’s downloadable muscles nowadays. I mean come on, another week with only new Wiiware game, WTF is going on? 3DS users not only get a slew of new titles, but they also receive an application from a company that has been in trouble recently due to some bad pricing decisions on their part. Just seems like everything is one sided here, but nevertheless, I will still pick a game that seems worthy of checking out. So either way here it is, my pick for Nintendo Download of the Week for July 14th, 2011.

My pick for this week is going to have to go to 3D Pixel Racing for the Wiiware service. It has an ESRB rating of E for Everyone, and will be available for download soon, through the Wii Shop Channel, at the asking price of 500 Wii Points. My reason for choosing this one was rather simple, I have a soft spot for racing games on the system, and while this may not be Mario Kart Wii by any means, it will still probably be alot of fun to play.  Anybody out there who enjoys these types of games as much as I do should go ahead and download it as soon as it becomes available.

Aside from the 3DS receiving the Netlfix streaming app this week, our handheld friends out there will have four new DSiWare, and 2 new 3DS VC games to check out. Relive america’s pasttime, Mario style, by playing a few rounds of Baseball. Give those reflexes a run for their money in Game & Watch Gallery. Find out how real life creatures would do in a fight against each other in AfterZoom. Relive some classic songs from the 80’s and give Just Sing! 80’s Collection a try. A game about guessing the word correctly, or otherwise facing your ultimate demise is back in the form of Extreme Hangman 2. Don’t really have anything fancy to say about another match three puzzler hitting the service, all you need to know is that its called Puzzle Fever.

All of this, and more, can be found in the eShop, DSi, and Wii Shop Channels very soon, have fun!
