Nintendo Download: May 16, 2013 – Mario, Metroid, Resident Evil, Mega Man, Sales, and More!

How many new games would make you happy? How about 13? That’s what we get in today’s Nintendo Download.

Over this next week, the Wii U eShop will grow by at least five more games. Super Metroid was technically released yesterday, but be sure to download it for only 30 cents, while you still can. Also out for the Virtual Console on Wii U is Super Mario Bros. 2 and Super Ghouls’n Ghosts. Moving over to “full retail” games, you can download two of them this upcoming Tuesday. Both Resident Evil Revelations and LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes will be available for purchase from the eShop.

Over on the 3DS eShop, we also have continued growth. Swords & Soldiers 3D hits the handheld, along with THE STARSHIP DAMREY, Bowling Bonanza 3D, and Dress to Play: Magic Bubbles! If you’re looking for the “old-school,” though, check out Mega Man 5 or Harvest Moon, which both hit the 3DS Virtual Console today.

DSiWare and Wii Virtual Console are not to be left out. Both increase their roster by one today. DSiWare gets California Super Sports, and the Wii Virtual Console gets THE KING OF FIGHTERS ’99.

There are also a few new sales on the Wii U eShop. First up is one for Super Mario Bros. 2. If you purchase Super Mario World, you will get SMB2 for 50% off until May 23, 2013. The other sale is for BIT.TRIP Presents… Runner 2: Future Legend of Rhythm Alien. If you have not downloaded this game yet, it is 25% off until May 30, 2013. Check out our review for more details about the game.
