Nintendo Download: May 2, 2013 – PAC-MAN, Mega Man, eShop Sales, & More!

What do you get when you combine three Wii U Virtual Console games, two Wii U eShop titles, three 3DS eShop games, one DSiWare, and a lot of eShop sales? You get the Nintendo Download for May 2, 2013!

The Virtual Console officially launched last week for Wii U, and this week, three games have been added. Many of you probably grabbed Balloon Fight at its discounted price already, but in case you missed it, it is back along with PAC-MAN and Mega Man. You can play all these titles on your TV or directly on your GamePad. Also available on the Wii U eShop are TANK! TANK! TANK! and Kung Fu Rabbit.

Moving over to the handheld side, BearShark makes the move from 3D video to a 3D game. Fans of the Nintendo Video show will be excited to now interact with this crazy world. If you are looking for something more lighthearted, you can get Gummy Bears Magical Medallion. If that is too much for you, maybe download My Riding Stables 3D – Jumping for the Team. Moving over to DSiWare, we get something entirely different with Armageddon Operation Dragon.

If that is not enough for you, there are a ton of sales going on right now on the eShops. Nintendo has discounted many of their games on the 3DS, Shin’en has their games on both 3DS and Wii U for 30% off, and all Marvel tables for Zen Pinball are half-off. If you have been waiting to download a game, now is the time, but act fast before the sales run out!

We have posted the full list of all the releases and prices below (apologies for the lack of prices, as Nintendo did not supply them this week), 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!

    I wish I would have known about the Marvel sale a couple weeks ago when I purchased the Avengers pack at full price! Also, I’m thinking about PAC-MAN, but I think I’d rather own it on 3DS instead…
