Nintendo Download: December 5, 2013

After a big “Black Friday” of game sales, here we are at yet another Thursday, just in time for the next Nintendo Download. Are you ready? Here we go…

It looks like the folks at Nintendo are still sleeping from all the turkey they ate, because this is the second week in a row with only one new Wii U download. This week, you can get the Virtual Console release of The Legend of the Mystical Ninja on the Wii U eShop.

Over on the 3DS eShop, though, things are still rolling out at a steady pace. This week, you can get two more of the SEGA 3D Classics, as both 3D Sonic the Hedgehog and 3D Altered Beast are available for download. Also up for digital download are Donkey Kong 3, Brilliant Hamsters!, and Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2. Not to be left out, there is one more DSiWare title this week, as well. You can grab Hooked on Bass Fishing on your DSi or 3DS.

One last thing… As Nintendo continues its holiday sales, this week is all about Donkey Kong. You can download Donkey KongDonkey Kong Jr., and Donkey Kong 3 for Wii U, and you can get Donkey KongDonkey Kong Jr., and Game & Watch: Donkey Kong Jr. for Nintendo 3DS — all for 30% off from today until December 12, 2013.
