This week’s Nintendo downloads see the European release of a long-awaited 3DS platformer, which originally made its eShop debut in North American territories four months back. A lack of Wii U downloads aside, there’s also a dose of DSiWare, and a new Virtual Console title on both Wii and 3DS. Continue reading
This week’s Nintendo downloads have been confirmed, with a returning retail title getting the digital treatment, and potentially the best DSiWare download in a long time finally arriving in the Nintendo eShop. Here’s the full line-up: Continue reading

We’re in for a treat on the eShop this week – if you don’t mind paying extortionate prices for retail downloads, that is. The eShop’s come a long way since its original inception in June of last year, but for all of its improvements and new additions, surely not one has been as monumental for Nintendo as the introduction of retail downloads. Read on for the lowdown on this week’s new additions to Nintendo’s digital stores. Continue reading

To celebrate the launch of New Super Mario Bros. 2 on 19th August in North America, Nintendo’s discounting four Virtual Console games on the eShop from 26th July to 22nd August.
$3.99 Super Mario Bros. (NES) 26 July – 1 Aug
$2.99 Super Mario Land (Game Boy) 2 Aug – 8 Aug
$2.99 Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins (Game Boy) 9 Aug – 15 Aug
$2.99 Mario’s Picross (Game Boy) 16 Aug – 22 Aug
There’s been no word of a discount in the UK, so we can only hope that Nintendo of Europe’s deciding to keep quiet for a little longer – especially as New Super Mario Bros. 2 arrives over here two days earlier.
Are there any games here you’d consider downloading at a discounted price?
This week’s Nintendo downloads have been confirmed, and it’s quite the comprehensive list, we’re sure you’ll agree. On the 3DS Virtual Console, those waiting to play the first games in the series before starting their Ambassador version of Wario Land 4 are taken one step closer to the fourth game in the series with Wario Land II. Also on the Nintendo eShop is more Theatrhythm Final Fantasy add-on content, a downloadable video, and a double helping of DSiWare; with new WiiWare and Wii Virtual Console games arriving on the Wii Shop Channel.
Nintendo revealed during its Nintendo Direct presentation this morning that, in celebration of its first anniversary, five Nintendo eShop games are available to download at a discounted price, with another five to follow in a week’s time. Here’s the list of games that are currently 20% cheaper when downloaded from the 3DS:
Zen Pinball 3D
Let’s Golf! 3D
The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening DX
Super Mario Land
On 28th June these games will return to their original prices, whilst five more get their prices slashed:
Dillon’s Rolling Western
FreakyForms: Your Creations, Alive!
Fun! Fun! Minigolf TOUCH!
Mighty Switch Force!
Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins
From the first selection we’d wholeheartedly recommend Pullblox and Link’s Awakening, followed by WayForward’s fantastic Mighty Switch Force! which recently received a free update which added five new levels. Oh, and the Super Mario Land games also deserve a mention for those that want/haven’t already had a taste of Mario’s first handheld adventures.
If these games sell well enough during the next couple of weeks it may convince Nintendo to cut games’ prices more often, so if there’s a game here you’re interested in we’d urge you to download it if possible.
Also on the eShop today are demos of Square Enix’s Theatrhythm Final Fantasy and Kingdom Hearts 3D. Having played through both, we can safely say that the final games are well worth waiting for, and if you own a 3DS that’s connected to the Internet, download them right away!
Update: The Wii U’s hardware designer has confirmed that all data from your current Wii console is transferable to your shiny new Wii U system – including WiiWare and Virtual Console games, and all of your precious save files.
“We are readying the system, yes, to transfer saves and everything you’ve bought.” - Katsuya Eguchi, designer and manager at Nintendo EAD.
