Nintendo Download of the Week: 10/18 Edition

It’s that time once again to see what’s new in the world of Nintendo Downloads. Doing these updates is becoming a harder to task to complete lately, partially because there is just so much to talk about. Is this a bad thing though? No, just means that there is a little bit of something for everybody, and that’s a good thing.

My pick for Nintendo Download of the Week is Gradius for the 3DS VC Service. It has an ESRB rating of E for Everyone, and will be available for download through the Nintendo eShop at the asking price of $4.99. The reason why this one made the cut was because side scrolling shooters with a space theme are some of the most enjoyable experiences from my gaming past. If you feel the same way I do then by all means download this title as soon as it becomes available.

Not up for defending the universe. don’t worry, you still have one new 3DS Download title, five new 3DS Retail Download titles, one new 3DS Demo, one new DSiWare title, one new WiiWare title, and one new Nintendo Video to check out. Start a scrapbook with your friends in Sparkle Snapshots 3D. Don’t need a fancy explanation here, the new retail titles available for download are Style Savvy: Trendsetters, Mario Kart 7, Super Mario 3D Land, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D, and Star Fox 64 3D.  See what happens when scary creatures are let loose in an amusement park in the Moshi Monsters Moshlings Theme Park Demo.

The moment has occurred once again where not all of the updates could fit into one paragraph, so let’s see what else is available, shall we? Put those puzzles skills to the ultimate test when playing Puzzler World XL. Find the catch of the day in Reel Fishing Ocean Challenge. Finally, your Nintendo Video comes from those crazy cubicle dwelling dinosaurs, and it is entitled Dinosaur Office: Halloween Spooktacular!

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