Nintendo Download of the Week: 3/15 Edition

Welcome to a blast from the past installment of what’s new in the world of Nintendo downloads. Seriously, it just seems like developers wanted to take some time off this time around by deciding to release almost nothing but classic games instead of new ones. Does this decision upset me? Of course not, I am always up for reliving the good old days. Anyway, here is pick for Nintendo Download of the Week for March 15, 2012.

This was seriously a tough call, as my heart was literally torn between two of these releases, but in the end, I’m going to have to go with Sonic The Hedgehog: Triple Trouble for the 3DS Virtual Console Service.  It has an ESRB rating of E for Everyone and will be available for download through the Nintendo eShop at the asking price of $4.99. My reason for choosing this one is simple, I’m a fan of Sonic.

As far as the rest of the handheld downloads go, there are two more 3DS VC games, one new DSiWare game, and one new Nintendo Video to check out.  Try to become a ninja master in Shinobi. Take a trip through labyrinths in Dragon Crystal. Walk the plank in Pirates Assault. Find out more about Pit in the new Nintendo Video entitled Kid Icarus 3D Anime.

To wrap things up, our lonely little friend the Wii only has one new VC title available for download. Show the world who the true master of the sword is when playing Samurai Shodown IV: Amakusa’s Revenge.

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