Nintendo Download of the Week: 7/19 Edition

It’s that time once again to check out what’s new in the world of Nintendo Downloads. Apparently today is handheld system day because everything on offer here is for a portable device. Would have been nice to see the home console gamers get a little bit of love as well, but in all honesty, that’s not really a bad thing. Still, having nothing to play on my Wii is disappointing, guess I’ll just have to get over it for now though.

After some careful consideration my pick for Nintendo Download of the Week is going to be Kid Icarus: Of Myths and Monsters for the 3DS VC service. It has an ESRB rating of E10+, and will be available for download through the Nintendo eShop at the asking price of $3.99.  The reason why this one made the cut was I am a fan of retro platformers. If anybody feels the same way I do then by all means download this title as soon as possible.

Not up for slaying monsters in the sky, don’t worry, there are  still two new 3DS Download titles, two new DSiWare titles, one new 3DS VC title, and one new Nintendo Video for you to check out. Go on the heist of a lifetime in The Phantom Thief Stina and 30 Jewels. Draw your way to the finish line in Masyu by Nikoli. Help a girl and her rabbit find their way home, again, in Rabi Laby 2. Let your creative juices run wild with a little program that goes by the name of Petit Computer. Defeat enemies with a common household appliance when playing Tumblepop. The New Nintendo Video, available for download tomorrow, is another entry from the Dinosaur Office series entitled Dinosaur Office: Sick Day.

One more thing, the 3DS VC game Mario’s Picross is receiving a price reduction this week to $2.99, so if you haven’t had the chance to play it yet, now may be the time to do so. Hurry up and make it happen though, because this offer will only be available from 9 am Pacific time tomorrow until 9 pm pacific time on Sunday.

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