Nintendo Download: May 9, 2013 – Resident Evil, Mario and Donkey Kong, Virtual Console, and More!

With E3 almost one month away, Nintendo keeps squeaking out games that have been mentioned in the past. This week is no different. Get ready for the Nintendo Download.

The Wii U Virtual Console continues to grow. Sure, some of you expect that growth to come faster, but we can probably all agree that we are glad it has finally arrived. Today, you can get both Xevious and Solomon’s Key. Also, you can soon download a free demo of Resident Evil Revelations on the Wii U eShop, in anticipation of the full game, which will release later this month.

What do we have on the handheld side? We have Mario and Donkey Kong: Minis on the Move on the 3DS eShop! Many have been awaiting this strategy-puzzler for quite some time. Also available on the eShop is SpeedX 3D Hyper Edition, a tunnel racer that is sure to get your adrenaline running. Over on the DSiWare end, you can experience life as a game publisher in the Publisher Dream sim.

Nintendo also wants you to know about the 50% off sale for the Wii U eShop game, Chasing Aurora. To find out what we thought of this title, check out our review. Get it for half-price until May 16, 2013.

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!
