Nintendo Download – May 17, 2012

by Steve CullumMay 17, 2012

This week, we jump back down to two new games. However, there is also a great free demo available to soften the blow.

The original GameBoy title Kirby’s Block Ball can be downloaded from the 3DS eShop. In addition, you can get a demo of the retail 3DS game Rayman Origins! The only brand new game this week comes in the form of Chronicles of Vampires: The Awakening for DSiWare.

Also worth mentioning is the Mario Kart 7 online multiplayer patch. This is now available in the eShop, and it will patch three courses previously containing glitches. You must download this patch to play online.

Finally, tomorrow marks the day for the Men in Black 3 trailer to hit the Nintendo Video app on the 3DS. You probably want to check this out, especially if you are excited about the movie, since it is in 3D and free!

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