Nintendo Download – March 15, 2012

As we mentioned last week and in our podcast, Nintendo revealed their plans to bring Sega Game Gear games to the 3DS eShop. Today, that is exactly what fills up the majority of the Nintendo Download.

Those three Game Gear titles include Sonic the Hedgehog: Triple Trouble, Shinobi, and Dragon Crystal. On DSiWare, we get Pirates Assault. Also available today is Samurai Shodown IV: Amakusa’s Revenge for the Wii Virtual Console. No WiiWare titles for today, but we do get a free Kid Icarus 3D anime on the 3DS Nintendo Video app.

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.
