Nintendo Download – March 1, 2012

Just when you thought last week had a low number of games released, this week drops the number again. And, no, we do not mean down to three. They have dropped it down to just two. You heard us right. Two new downloadable games this week. On top of that, only one is a brand new title. However, we do get two new free demos, so maybe that might equal it out for some of you.

On the 3DS eShop, we get Metroid, which was originally released for the NES, then again for the 3DS Ambassadors. In addition, you can also download a demo of Crush 3D, which just hit the retail shelves. For DSiWare, Aahh! Spot the Difference has been added to the growing virtual store. Finally, the other demo released is for WiiWare in the form of Aya and the Cubes of Light, which originally launched in September 2011.

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.
