Nintendo Download – February 21, 2013

Greetings to all you NintendoFusers! Even though another game system is on the minds of many gamers, it is still Thursday, which means we get another dose of Nintendo Download goodness, and today really is a batch of goodness!

Let’s begin with the eShop for Wii U. First up is the long-awaited demo of Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate. You can download that for free, along with a demo for Trine 2. For those of you curious about these two games, there is hardly a better way of answering that curiosity than with a free demo. In addition to this, the next game in the Virtual Console rollout is here in F-Zero. Remember, this game is only 30 cents for just 30 days, so act quick.

Moving over to the handheld side of Nintendo, we have a host of titles. Like its Wii U counterpart, a demo of Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate also comes to the 3DS today. Even though it has not got the greatest reviews, a demo of Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed will be available. That way, you can try it out yourself. The NES classic puzzler, Yoshi, makes its way to the 3DS eShop for those who did not receive it as a part of the 3DS Ambassador program. For you RPG fans, you will be excited to hear that Atlus’ Etrian Odyssey IV: Legends of the Titan is available to download, a full five days before it is out in retail stores. Wrapping up the 3DS eShop games is Picdun 2: Witch’s Curse and Viking Invasion: Tower Defense.

We have posted the full list of all the releases and prices below, along with the official press release, straight from Nintendo of America. Be sure to let us know what game(s) or apps get you excited to play. Let us know in the comments below or in our forums!
