Nintendo Download – June 28, 2012

Welcome back to Nintendo Download.  This time we have bad news and good news.  Starting with the bad, the Wii Shop gets no love this week with no Virtual Console or WiiWare games.

Now, onto the good news!  Starting this week, rather weekend, we get discounted prices for games!  Each sale lasts from Friday (9 AM PST / 12 PM EST) to Sunday (9 PM PST / Monday 12AM EST).

In Bomb Monkey, you are a monkey that blows up blocks with bombs.  This game is an explosive puzzle game with blocks and bombs. Marvel Pinball is a 3D pinball game featuring superhero tables based on Iron Man, Captain America, Fantastic Four and more!  Be sure to check these out along with the free demos for Rhythm Thief and Kingdom Hearts.
