Happy Thanksgiving, all you Nintendo fans! What’s that? Oh yes, it is also Nintendo Download day! So, as you are filling your stomachs with lots of turkey, stuffing, and pumpkin pie, here are a few games that will release today and this upcoming week. Perhaps you could even play some with your family today.
The unfortunate news is that there is only one Wii U game on the list this week. That one is Contra III: The Alien Wars. However, the Nintendo 3DS eShop list is much more packed. First up is the addition of SEGA 3D Classics, which includes eight classics remade in 3D. This week, we get two of them in 3D Space Harrier and 3D Super Hang-On. The Nintendo 3DS Guide: Louvre also hits the eShop, along with Ninja Gaiden III: The Ancient Ship of Doom, Race to the Line, and Young Justice: Legacy. Another item hitting the 3DS eShop is the Pokémon: BW Rival Destinies animated series. In fact, ten episodes are available now, and five more will launch every week until December 26. Nintendo did not leave out DSi owners, though, because Heathcliff: Spot On hits the DSi Shop and 3DS eShop.
There are also several Mario games on both eShops that are on sale this week. Grab Mario Bros., Super Mario Bros., Super Mario Bros. 2, and Super Mario World for Wii U, as well as Super Mario Bros., Super Mario Bros. 2, Mario and Donkey Kong: Minis on the Move, and Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins for Nintendo 3DS. All are 30% off until next Thursday, December 6. Also, Shin Megami Tensei IV is $20 off on the 3DS eShop until December 2.
That’s it for this week’s Nintendo Download, but be sure to check out the full list of all the releases and prices below, along with the official press release information, straight from Nintendo of America.
