Nintendo Download of the Week: It’s-a Me, Luigi!

Welcome to yet another exciting installment of what’s new in the world of Nintendo Downloads. I am in sensory overload today here folks. There are just so many different quality experiences to choose from that it will be hard to try to pick only one of them as my favorite. That being said, somebody has to win out, so let’s see who made the cut, shall we?


After some careful consideration, my pick for Nintendo Download of the Week is the DLC for New Super Mario Bros. U entitled New Super Luigi U. It has an ESRB rating of E for Everyone, and is now available for download through the Wii U eShop at the asking price of $19.99. The reason why I picked this was because Luigi doesn’t get to shine in the spotlight all too often, and I want to see what an adventure featuring him is capable of. If you feel the same way I do then by all means download this title as soon as possible.

Not up for showing off some weird jumping skills, don’t worry, there is still one new Wii U Retail Download title, two new Wii U VC titles, one recently discounted Wii U Download title, two new 3DS download titles, four new 3DS VC titles, three new 3DS Retail Download titles,one recently discounted 3DS Download title, and one new DSiWare title for you to check out. See what minigame antics Wario has come up with for Nintendos latest home console in Game & Wario (available June 23rd). Witness the introduction of the thinner plumber brother when playing Mario Bros.. Try to cause as much destruction as possible in Wrecking Crew. The recently discounted title for Wii U is Little Inferno ( $4.99 until June 26th). Teach those bugs whose boss, old school style, in Bugs vs. Tanks.

As usual, one paragraph won’t do it, so here we go. See if you have what it takes to be a farmer when playing Farming Simulator 3D. Defeat the evil wizard and save your world while doing so in Defenders of Oasis. Can Sonic’s best friend handle things on his own, find out in Tails Adventure. It’s better just to let this speed demon do his this when a game goes by the name of Sonic Blast. Another day, another group of evil robots to steal powers from, that’s the best way to describe Mega Man 6. Watch what happens when popular RPG characters go on adventure together in Project X Zone (June 25th).

Hopefully this paragraph will be the last, but no promises. Try to put the pieces back together, literally, when playing LEGO Legends of Chima: Laval’s Journey (June 25th). Go for the gold in Mario & Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games. Your recently discounted 3DS Download is Super Little Acorns 3D Turbo ($3.99 until July 8th). Finally, become a beat master (i know that sounds bad) when playing Rhythm Core Alpha 2.

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

Here is the trailer that I found for the DLC, enjoy!
