Nintendo Download of the Week: 5/10 Edition

Welcome to another installment of what’s new in the world of Nintendo downloads. For the first time in what seems to be an eternity, the Wii’s VC service is releasing not just one, but two titles onto the Wii Shop (craziness I know). In all honesty though, that’s pretty much where the excitement ends because the rest of what’s on offer here isn’t all that appealing. Still, it’s nice to see companies show some love towards a platform that many people still tend to ignore to this very day. Let’s just hope this isn’t a one time deal.

Despite having a strong offering of classic games, my decision on which one made the cut may not be what you were expecting. My pick for Nintendo Download of the Week is Paul’s Shooting Adventure 2 for the DSiWare service. It has an ESRB rating of E10+, and will be available for download through the Nintendo eShop at the asking price of $1.99. The reason why I chose this title above the rest was because I played the first one and had a great time with it. If you are in the same boat as I am then by all means download this one as soon as possible.

Not up for saving the world as a baby, don’t worry, there is still one new 3DS Downloadable title, two new Wii VC titles, and one new Nintendo Video for you to check out. Coming up with a clever line for a game that has been released way too many times is pretty hard to do, but fans of solving math puzzles should check out Sudoku by Nikoli anyways. Protect your home at all costs in Wonder Boy in Monster Land. Go on a magical adventure full of spirits and everything else when playing Monster World IV. Finally, the Nintendo Video people can check out is called Dinosaur Office: Office Party.

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