Nintendo Download of the Week: 9/29 Edition

Today’s update is a little bit on the short side, but that’s ok, because there are definitely a couple of titles on here that may be worth checking out. Wii owners get next to nothing once again, while portable gamers are blessed with a slew of new content to keep them happy for the time being. It would have been nice to see things a little bit more balanced out with at least a new Wii VC game release or something, but apparently that service has been completely forgotten about altogether at this point. Anyways, here it is, my pick for Nintendo Download of the Week, for September 29th, 2011.

My pic for this week is going to have to go to escapeVektor: Chapter 1 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. The reason why this one made the cut was because I’ve seen a number of different trailers for it, and the game looks like it would be alot of fun to play. Anybody who feels this way should go ahead and download this title as soon as it becomes available.

For those of you who are more interested in playing something on the go, don’t worry, there are two new DSiWare games, one new 3DS VC game, and seven new trailers to check out. Relive one of the portly plumbers most memorable adventures in Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins. Pong with bugs, is the best way to describe Bugs’n’Balls. Copying ideas seems to be a recurring theme here, because Crystal Caverns of Amon-Ra in some way reminds me of Zuma (download it, or at least watch a trailer for it, and you’ll see why).

And finally, here are all of the new trailers now available for download in the eShop:

  • Super Mario 3D Land
  • Mario Kart 7
  • Luigi’s Mansion 2
  • Paper Mario
  • Animal Crossing
  • Mario Tennis
  • Kid Icarus: Uprising
All of this, and more, can be found in the eShop, DSi, and Wii Shop Channels very soon, have fun!
