Nintendo Download of the Week: 12/29 Edition

Well the last batch batch of Nintendo Downloads for 2011 are here and I have to say that things don’t look all that bad this time around.  Nintendo 3DS users are receiving something which feels oddly familiar to me, but still looks like a whole lot of fun. The DSiWare service is releasing something that looks a blatant copy of something else, and for some reason, Wii owners are stuck with having to rely on their math skills once again. Without further adieu, here it is, my pick for Nintendo Download of the Week for December 29th, 2011.

My pick for this week is going to have to go to VVVVVV 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 $7.99. The reason why I chose this one above the rest was because its layout is similar to Mighty Flip Champs, and seeing as how I had a blast with that game, there is no doubt in my mind that this version will be a whole lot of fun to play as well. If any of you are in the mood for a unique platforming experience, then by all means download this game as soon as it becomes available.

Not in the mood to flip out?, don’t worry, there are still two new DSiWare titles, along with one new 3DS VC title available for download. Anybody with a sweet tooth may want to think twice before playing Cake Ninja. Anybody who has a gambling addiction should feel right at home in Slingo Supreme. Your arm means everything in a game like Bionic Commando.

To round things off, our console friends will only have one new WiiWare title to check out. Help uncover yet another great mystery in this classic crime solving series by playing Carmen Sandiego Adventures in Math: The Big Ben Burglary.

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