Nintendo Download of the Week: 5/30 Edition

Hello everyone, welcome to another installment of what’s new in the world of Nintendo Downloads. Today’s offerings are rather interesting because almost everything here was something that I used to play back in the day. Just because I say that though doesn’t mean everything has aged well over the years. Let’s take a look now to see if there is anything worth checking out, shall we?


After some consideration, my picks for Nintendo Download of the Week are The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Ages, and The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Seasons for the 3DS VC service. Each one has an ESRB rating of E for Everyone, and they are both currently available for download through the 3DS eShop at the asking price of $4.99 until June 20th ($5.99 afterwards). The reason why I picked these two was a simple one, both of them are fun entries in a well known franchise that are interconnected in terms of gameplay and story, so picking one over the other would not be a fair thing to do. If you feel the same way I do then by all means download this game as soon as possible.

Not up for rescuing Zelda, don’t worry, there are still two new Wii U VC titles (each are part of a discount promotion), two recently discounted Wii U titles (one of which has a lot of discounted songs), two new 3DS Download titles, and one new 3DS Retail Demo for you to check out. See how the Blue Bomber took things to the extreme when playing Mega Man X ( Buy one, get one free with purchase of Ghosts n’ Goblins until June 6th). Try to win the fight against the undead in Ghosts n’ Goblins (Same offer as Mega Man until June 6th). Your two other discounted titles are Toki Tori 2 ($11.24 until June 6th), and Just Dance 4 ($34.99 until June 4th).

As usual, one paragraph won’t do it, so here we go. Enjoy some dungeon exploration on the go in The Denpa Men 2: Beyond the Waves. See how candy bears perform on the green in Gummy Bears Mini Golf. Finally, the new demo available this week is an action RPG from Capcom entitled Project X Zone.
