Nintendo Download – November 15, 2012

Here we are — the final Nintendo Download absent of Wii U content. What will it look like next week? Only time will tell. However, this week, in a turn of events, Nintendo has released more full-priced retail games than anything else. Typically, we get one or two per week, but this time, there are four on the list in comparison to the three lower-priced digital games.

What are those 3DS retail titles, you ask? To start with, Disney Epic Mickey: Power of Illusion is available starting November 18 for $39.99. Today, though, you can download Hotel Transylvania, American Mensa Academy, and the PC-classic Myst for a “budget” price of $29.99.

For those who are looking for something smaller, it seems Nintendo still has something for you. On the 3DS eShop, you can get the top-down action of Monster Shooter. For those looking for DSiWare, you can download the platform-racing Jump Trials and put a twist on the classic pipe puzzle genre with Working Dawgs: A-Maze-ing Pipes.

In honor of the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday in the US, there will also be a new free Dinosaur Office video in the 3DS Nintendo Video app called, Dinosaur Office: Thanksgiving Special!

So, what do you think of this week’s releases? What game gets you excited to play? Let us know in the comments below or in our forums! 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.
