Turn on those systems people, it’s time for another installment of what’s new in the world of Nintendo Downloads. Today must be jump day, because almost everything on offer here has platforming elements to it. Seeing as how this is one my favorite genres, my decision to pick a favorite is going to be a difficult thing to do. That being said, let’s see what made the cut, shall we?
My pick for Nintendo Download of the Week is 1001 Spikes for the Wii U Download Service. It has an ESRB rating of T for Teen, and is currently available for download in the eShop at the asking price of $15.00. Despite the steep price tag, the reason why I picked this one was because I love platformers that are easy to understand, yet difficult to master. If you feel the same way I do then by all means download this title as soon as possible (don’t forget to check out the 3DS version too).
Not interested in throwing your controller across the room, don’t worry, there are still two new Wii U Download titles, one new Wii U VC, one new Wii U Retail Download title, three temporarily discounted Wii U titles, one new 3DS Download titles, two new 3DS Retail Download titles, and four temporarily discounted 3DS titles available for download. Pay attention at all times in Chubbins. There is no rest for the wicked when playing I’ve Got To Run. See why green is a favorite color of some gamers after they play The Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap. Find out how hard it is to deal with a mythical creature in How to Train Your Dragon 2 (3DS version also available, both release June 10th).
As usual, one paragraph won’t do it, so here we go. Your three temporarily discounted 3DS titles are Just Dance 2014 ($24.99 until June 9th), Just Dance Kids 2014 ($14.99 until June 9th), and Just Dance 4 ($24.99 until June 9th). Sit back and relax in Color Zen. Let your imaginations run wild with your Mii characters in Tomodachi Life (June 8th). Finally, your four temporarily discounted 3DS titles are Conception II: Children of the Seven Stars ($29.99 until June 9th), Bit Boy!! Arcade ($4.80 until June 26th), Riding Stables 3D (June 25th), Rising Stables 3D: Jumping for the Team (June 25th).
All this and more can be found in the 3DS eShop, DSi Shop, and Wii U eShop Channels right now, have fun!
