Nintendo Download – March 7, 2013

Today’s Nintendo Download is basically all about the handheld. More specifically, other than one Wii Virtual Console title, it is all about Nintendo 3DS.

What is that lone Wii title? It is yet another installment in the KING OF FIGHTERS series. This time, we have THE KING OF FIGHTERS ’98 joining Nintendo’s “last gen” Virtual Console.

What is in store for you Nintendo 3DS owners? How does seven games and one discount sound? First up is Kersploosh!, an action game that has you navigating stones through a well in 3D. Next up is a free demo of Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity. Even though you may already have it in cartridge format, Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D is also out via digital download today. The classic Wrecking Crew makes its eShop Virtual Console debut for those who did not already have it from the Ambassador program. Renegade Kid brings their next game to the 3DS with ATV Wild Ride 3D. One of NintendoFuse’s favorite Wii U eShop games goes back to its handheld roots with Nano Assault EX. We also can expect Monster High: Skultimate Roller Maze to be available on March 13. Finally, Sakura Samurai: Art of the Sword is on sale, $2.00 off, for a limited time. Whew! Time to catch my breath…

      Good question! The original plan was to bring it to Wii U in December. The last thing they told me (almost a month ago) was they will announce their plans for Nintendo platforms in the coming weeks.
