I know that’s a lame time and all, but I couldn’t help myself. Anyways, it’s that time once again for us to check out what’s new in the world of Nintendo downloads. Today is a rather unusual day because almost everything here offers a unique take on familiar genres. Does that mean that any of these ideas will translate into success, let’s take a moment to find out, shall we?
My pick for Nintendo Download of the Week is Squids Odyssey for the Wii U Download Service. It has an ESRB rating of E for Everyone, and is currently available for download through the Wii U eShop at the asking price of $14.99. The reason why I picked this one was because it looks like somebody took an RPG, Angry Birds, and a Pinball title, put them into a blender, and came up with this game. If that peaks your interest then by all means download the game as soon as possible.
Not interested in exploring the ocean floor, don’t worry, there are still two new Wii U Download titles, one new Wii U VC title, one discounted Wii U Download title, two 3DS Download titles, one new 3DS Demo, one new 3DS VC title, six discounted 3DS titles, and one new DSiWare title available for download. Relive an RTS classic in Swords & Soldiers. Burn those calories when playing Fit Music. Let your fists do the talking in Street Fighter Alpha 2. Your discounted Wii U title is Blok Drop U ($1.49 until June 4th). Slow and steady wins the race in Turtle Tale. Learn the secrets of the great beyond in Alien on the Run (Demo).
As usual, one paragraph won’t do it, so here we go. The hunt for Dr. Wily continues in Mega Man V. Your six 3ds discounted titles are Aeternoblade ($9.99 May 23rd-26th), Darts Up 3D ($0.99 until June 11th), Classic Games Overload ($10 off until June 2nd), 3D Mahjongg (Discount until June 5th), Funfair Party Games (Discount until June 5th), and Gardenscapes (Discount until June 5th). Finally, another day, another match 3 puzzle game, that about sums up Lost Treasures of Alexandria.
All this and more can be found in the 3DS eShop, DSi Shop, and Wii U eShop Channels right now, have fun!
