Nintendo Download – December 29, 2011

Happy New Year to all our readers. We hope you had a great 2011. As we round out the year, Nintendo gives us five new titles for download today.

The 3DS eShop grows by two. VVVVVV has you saving crew members from extinction, and Bionic Commando reminds us of the GameBoy era of action-shooters. DSiWare also gains two new games in a port of the iOS cake-slicing game Cake Ninja and the casino game Slingo Supreme. WiiWare increases by one with the six-player Carmen Sandiego Adventures in Math: The Big Ben Burglary.

Also, if you did not notice yet, Swapnote is also available for your Nintendo 3DS. This free messaging system allows you to send 3D messages to your Friends List. Check it out in your eShop.

As always, check out the price list and official press release below, and be sure to let us know if you download a game/app and what you think.
