Nintendo Download of the Week: Teaching an Old Dog New Tricks…Again

It’s that time once again for us to check out what’s new in the world of Nintendo Downloads. Today’s offerings are a mixed bag of goodies for just about every service, including one that is still keeping hope alive despite being phased out a while ago. Hopefully we will find something good here, but only time will tell if that theory is true or not. That being said, let’s see if anything stood out from the crowd here, shall we?

My pick for Nintendo Download of the Week is NES Remix 2 for the Wii U VC Service. It has an ESRB rating of E for Everyone, and will be available for download tomorrow in the Wii U eShop for the asking price of $14.99. The reason why I picked this title was because I enjoyed the first installment, it was a fun take on some old games from back in the day. If you feel the same way I do, then by all means download this title as soon as it becomes available.

Not in the mood for reliving the past, don’t worry, there are still two new Wii U Download titles, one new Wii U VC title, two new 3DS Download titles, two new 3DS Retail Download titles, one new 3DS Demo, four recently discounted 3DS Download titles, and one new DSiWare title available for download. Go on a journey that you will never forget in Child of Light (April 29th). Help protect your home at all costs in Aya and Avior Save The Earth. Be sure to bring plenty of eggs along with you when playing Super Mario Advance 3: Yoshi’s Island. Put those veterinary skills to the test in Me and My Furry Patients 3D. See what you left behind the first time around in Mystery Case Files: Return to Ravenhearst. Keep plenty of water around (at least virtual water anyway) when playing Gardening Mama 2: Forest Friends.

As usual, one paragraph won’t do it, so here we go. See where the yellow brick road leads you to in Legends of OZ: Dorothy’s Return. Go par for the course when checking out the Mario Golf: World Tour Demo. Your four temporarily discounted 3DS Download titles (all available until May 8th) are 3D Mahjongg($3.99), Funfair Party Games ($6.99), Gardenscapes ($5.99), and Secret Agent Files: Miami ($4.99). Finally, engage in some underwater mayhem in Sea Battle.

All this and more can be found in the 3DS eShop, DSi Shop, and Wii U eShop Channels right now, have fun!
