Nintendo Download – March 14, 2013

Today’s Nintendo Download is split with some good news, bad news. The good news is that seven titles are available today. The bad news is that the other eight are coming at a later time.

What’s in store for you today? The free demo of Chasing Aurora is on the Wii U eShop. Another free demo comes in the form of HarmoKnight on the 3DS eShop. Other titles for 3DS eShop include RAYMAN ORIGINS, Mega Man 3, and Reel Fishing Paradise 3D. Today, we also get a couple DSiWare games in Forgotten Legions and Goony.

What is coming later? LEGO City Undercover is coming to the Wii U eShop on March 18. Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate and The Croods: Prehistoric Party! will hit both the 3DS and Wii U eShops on March 19. Need for Speed Most Wanted arrives on the Wii U eShop on March 19. The next discounted Wii U Virtual Console title, Punch-Out!! Featuring Mr. Dream is planned for March 20. Finally, an semi-old favorite gets a free 3D reboot this summer in Flipnote Studio 3D on the 3DS eShop.

One last note is that the 3DS eShop sales keep coming. Ketzal’s Corridors is currently $2 off for a limited time. Download it for only $4.99.
