Nintendo Download: August 22, 2013

The Nintendo Download brings new games each week, but lately they have also brought sales and discounts. This week is no exception.

On the Wii U, though, the new games are on sale. Bonus! If you are a fan of Street Fighter, you can now get Street Fighter II: The World Warrior, Street Fighter II Turbo: Hyper Fighting, and Super Street Fighter II: The New Challengers all on the Wii U eShop for Virtual Console. However, if you buy one, the others  go on sale for 50% off! While this seems like a great deal, one does wonder why you would want the original Street Fighter II when you own Super Street Fighter II… but to each his/her own. This promotion ends on August 29.

The 3DS eShop is where most of the action takes place this week. Ninja Gaiden II: The Dark Sword of Chaos, Zero Escape: Virtue’s Last Reward, WAKEDAS, Funfair Party Games, and FISH ON 3D are all available today. Make sure you check out Zero Escape, though, as there is quite a bit of hype around its story. The other 3DS eShop thing to mention is that all Ubisoft games are 30% off until August 27.

Both systems will get the new Phineas and Ferb: Quest for Cool Stuff game. Unfortunately for fans, though, you will have to wait until August 27. Until then, maybe you could watch an old episode or ten.

That’s it for this week’s Nintendo Download.
