Nintendo Download of the Week: 12/22 Edition

Happy holidays everybody. Welcome to another installment of what’s new in the world of Nintendo downloads. There are a lot of new games to talk about, but the real question that remains is, “Are any of them good? Aside from one noticeable title being somewhat worthy of a mention, the rest of the downloads are lackluster at best. Unfortunately, quantity doesn’t mean quality here and it almost feels like we gave the big “N” a christmas list of things we wanted and they decided to just give us clothes instead. Despite these problems, here is my pick for Nintendo Download of the Week for December 22nd, 2011.

My pick for this week is going to have to go to Mighty Switch Force for the 3DS Download service. It has an ESRB rating of E10+ , and will be available for download soon, through the Nintendo eShop, at the asking price of $5.99. The reason why this one made the cut was because I have enjoyed all of Wayforwards games on the DSiWare service, and I’m sure that their first adventure on the 3DS will be just as much fun to play as those other ones were. If you are a fan of this developer as well, then by all means go ahead and download this title as soon as it becomes available.

Not in the mood to switch things up? Don’t worry, there are still three other DSiWare games, along with one new 3DS VC game for you to check out. Relive a classic in its purest form in Tetris. Become a creature of the night when playing Chronicles of Vampires: Origins. Produce your own musical masterpiece by checking out Rytmik Retrobits. See if scribbling random objects onto a piece of paper pays off in Doodle Fit.

Last, but certainly not least, our fellow console gamers will have one WiiWare game and demo to check out. A penalty card is something you need to avoid in a game like Soccer Up. Couldn’t think of anything clever to say about the Gnomz demo, trust me, the name speaks for itself.

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