Nintendo Download of the Week: 5/16 Edition

It’s that time once again to find out what’s going on in the world of Nintendo Downloads.  We have struck gold once again here people because there are so many quality titles available this time around. Seriously, if you can’t find something worthwhile to play out of this collection then there must be something seriously wrong with you. Let’s take a moment to see if anything stands out from the crowd, shall we?


Without question, my pick for Nintendo Download of the Week is Super Metroid for the Wii U VC Service. It has an ESRB rating of E for Everyone, and is currently available through the Wii U eShop at the asking price of only $0.30. The reason why I picked this one above the rest is because it’s one of the classic games that made me the gamer I am today, but the price has something to do with it as well. If you are a fan of the series like I am, then by all means download this title as soon as possible.

Not interested in exploring different planets, don’t worry, there are still two new Wii U VC titles, two new Wii U Retail Download titles, one recently discounted Wii U title, four new 3DS Download titles, two new 3DS VC titles, one new DSiWare title, and one new Wii VC title for you to check out. Relive the first adventure Mario shared with friends in Super Mario Bros. 2. Show the undead who’s boss in Super Ghouls’n Ghosts. Be aware of what’s lurking around every corner when playing Resident Evil Revelations (May 21st). See how fun the city of Gotham can be in Lego form when playing Lego Batman 2: DC Super Heroes (May 21st). The recently discounted Wii U title is BIT TRIP Presents… Runner 2: Future Legend of Rhythm Alien ($11.25 until May 30th). Find out what happened to your ship before it’s to late in The Starship Damrey.

As usual, one paragraph won’t do it, so here we go. An excellent RTS on WiiWare is trying to have success on the handheld front in the form of Swords & Soldiers 3D. Get a strike, without having to wear someone else’s shoes in Bowling Bonanza. Try to avoid pins in Dress to Play: Magic Bubbles. The blue suited hero still has some more crazy villains left to defeat in Mega Man 5. See how a farming simulator became a household name in the gaming industry when playing Harvest Moon. See if your digital sports skills are up to the task in California Super Sports. Another day, another fighter, that’s the best way to describe The King of Fighters ’99.

All this and more can be found in the eShop, DSi, Wii, and Wii U ShBop Channels right now, have fun!

Here is a video that I found for the game, Enjoy!
