Nintendo Download of the Week: 12/20 Edition

Welcome to a very late installment of what’s new in the world of Nintendo Downloads. I wish I had more to say here, but with only a limited view of what’s on offer today, updating you on everything is becoming a more difficult task by the minute. Hopefully things will improve after the full release lineup is revealed, more than likely though that is not going to happen. Let’s take a look and see if anything is worth checking out, shall we?

After some careful consideration, and a whole lot of research, my pick for Nintendo Download of the Week is Vampire Crystals for the WiiWare service. It has an ESRB rating of E10+, and is currently available for download through the Wii Shop Channel at the asking price of 1,o00 Wii Points. I picked this for one reason, it looks like a fun way to let out aggression. If you feel the same way I do, then by all means download this title right now. Unsure on spending those points right away, give the demo a try first before making that decision.

Not up for unleashing rage on some harmless zombies, don’t worry, there is still one new 3DS VC title, four new 3DS Download titles, one new 3DS Demo, some new 3DS DLC, four new  3DS Retail Downloads, two new Wii u Retail Downloads, three new DSiWare titles, and one new Nintendo Video for you to check out. Go on a treasure hunt with everyone’s favorite portly explorer in Wario Land II. Try to figure out how to get through a maze in escapeVektor. Play through some of your favorite board games in 3D in 3D Game Collection. Explore a world full of pixels when playing Pix 3D. Ride off into the sunset in Riding Stables 3D. The new demo for 3DS is 2 Fast 4 Gnomz, and the new dlc includes two new coin rush packs for the game New Super Mario Bros. 2.

As always, one paragraph won’t make the cut, so here we go. The new four new 3DS retail downloads are Mario Tennis Open, Pilotwings Resort, Pokemon Rumble Blast, and Bit Trip Saga.  Your two new Wii U retail downloads are Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy. Continue your quest into the unknown in Anonymous Notes Chapter 3: From the Abyss. Let it snow, ninja style, in Cake Ninja XMAS. Defend your castle, again, in Castle Conqueror Heroes 2. Finally, your Nintendo Video is a special holiday presentation entitled Dinosaur Office: New Year’s Party.

All this and more can be found in the eShop, DSi, Wii, and Wii U Shop Channels right now. Have fun!
