Welcome to another installment of what’s new in the world of Nintendo Downloads. Apparently console fans are getting the short hand this time around because every release today is for a handheld system. Is that a bad thing though? No, not really, because pretty much all of what’s on offer here today seems like it would be a lot of fun to play. Gamers of all shapes, sizes, and preferences should find something to do, and if they can’t, well, it’s their loss.
After some careful consideration, my pick for Nintendo Download of the week is going to be Flip the Core for the DSiWare service. It has an ESRB rating of E for Everyone, and will be available for download through the DSi Shop and eShop channels at the asking price of 200 DSi points ($1.99 in eShop). My reason for picking this one instead of the others was due to the fact that I liked the gimmick of incorporating scenery changes into a side scrolling shooter experience. Anybody who feels the same way I do should download this title as soon as it becomes available.
Not interested in flipping out, don’t worry, there is still one new DSiWare title, two new 3DS Download titles, and two new 3DS Demos for you to check out. Keep a deadly virus at bay in Escape the Virus: Swarm Survival. Help some superheroes fight the good fight against pinball tables in Marvel Pinball 3D. Help a monkey release some aggression on puzzle pieces when playing Bomb Monkey. Learn what being a musically gifted thief is all about, for a limited time anyway, in the Rhythm Thief and the Emperor’s Treasure Demo. Even though it released last week, anybody who is a fan of this popular series should consider checking out the demo for Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream, Drop, Distance as soon as possible.
Finally, the 3DS Download title VVVVVV received a price reduction today, so if you haven’t had the chance to play the game yet, go ahead and download it now for the low price of just $4.99.
All this and more can be found in the eShop, DSi, and Wii Shop Channels very soon. Have fun!
