Welcome to another installment of what’s new in the world of Nintendo Downloads. The phrase “less is more” is thrown around quite a bit nowadays, but in this case more actually equals less as far as I’m concerned. Just because every service is receiving a new title doesn’t mean any of them are good, and in all honesty, only one or two out of this whole collection are even remotely worth the price of admission. It’s a shame really, because all of these services have been on a roll as of late. I hope things will get better next time around, but for now, let’s see what they have to offer.
It was a tough call, but in the end, my pick for Nintendo Download of the Week is going to Save the Furries for the WiiWare service. It has an ESRB rating of E10+, and will be available for download through the Wii Shop Channel at the asking price of 1000 Wii Points. The reason why I chose this one above the rest was because the concept reminded me of a game I had quite a bit of fun playing back in the day called Lemmings, and if this game is even as remotely enjoyable as that one was then I will definitely give it a shot. If anybody feels the same way I do then by all means download this title as soon as it becomes available. People not interested in saving cute little creatures can check out the other offering on Wii for the VC, which is a beat em up classic that goes by the name of Double Dragon II.
As far as our handheld friends are concerned, there are two new 3DS Download titles, and two new DSiWare titles for you to check out. Learn how to become a master chef in Order Up!!. Play a good old fashioned game of connect the dots in Slitherink by Nikoli. Help people keep the doctor away with an apple every day when playing Lola’s Fruit Shop Sudoku. Set out on a quest to places only a few people have seen before in Jewel Legends: Tree of Life.
All this and more can be found in the eShop, DSi, and Wii Shop Channels very soon. Have fun!
