Nintendo Download of the Week: 8/9 Edition

Welcome to another installment of what’s new in the world of Nintendo Downloads. Getting excited about these offerings is going to be a difficult thing to do because in all honesty there is nothing here really worth checking out. The Wii VC does make a triumphant return though, so at least console gamers have something to get excited about. That being said, developers need to start showing more support  for the downloadable platforms or else my interest in them will start to become obsolete altogether.

My pick for Nintendo Download of the Week is going to be Commando: Steel Disaster for the DSiWare Service. It has an ESRB rating of e10+, and will be available for download soon through the eShop and DSi Shop Channels at the asking price of 800 DSi Points ($7.99 in eShop). The reason why this one made the cut was because the gameplay reminded of me of two of my favorite side scrolling shooter from back in the day, Contra and Metal Slug. If you are a fan of these types of experiences like I am then by all means download the title as soon as possible.

Not in the mood to be Rambo, don’t worry, there is still one new 3DS Download title, along with one new Wii VC title for you to check out. Go on a rampage in one of the most destructive vehicles known to man in Touch Battle Tank 3D. Test out your fighting skills against some of the deadliest martial artists in the world in Real Bout Fatal Fury Special.

One more thing, the 3DS VC title Super Mario Land 2 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.

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