Nintendo Download of the Week: 1/5 Edition

After taking an honest look at what’s new in the world of Nintendo Downloads, I have to say that despite the few games available, some of them actually look pretty decent. The 3DS Download service receives something reminiscent of Muramasa on Wii, DSiWare people get a clever new puzzler experience, and for some reason, Wii owners will now be able to launch Zombies with a slingshot. This is a rather strange update don’t you think? Anyways here it is, my pick for Nintendo Download of the Week for January 5th, 2012.



My pick for this week is going to have to go to Quick Fill Q for the DSiWare Service. It has an ESRB rating of E for Everyone, and will be available for download soon, through the eShop and DSi Shop Channels, at the asking price of 200 DSi Points ($1.99 in eShop). The reason why this one made the cut was because I like the idea of placing puzzles piece together in certain spots in order to keep the character on the top screen alive, it adds a level of urgency that many games on this service are lacking nowadays. If you like these types of experiences like I do then by all means download this title as soon as it becomes available.

Not in the mood for some unique puzzle solving?, don’t worry, there is still one new DSiWare title, along with one new 3DS Download title for you to check out. Protect the Kingdom of Crystennia from being destroyed in 3 Heroes: Crystal Soul. Help Akane rescue her brother by slashing through as many opponents as possible in Samurai Sword Destiny. Instead of leaving WiiWare all alone, I figured it would be better to just let console owners know that they can now destroy zombies with zombies when playing Zombii Attack.

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