Nintendo Download: January 23, 2014

It’s Thursday. It’s Thursday. That means another Nintendo Download. And in the middle of the retail gaming drought of early 2014, at least we have downloadable games to keep us going, right? Right? Ummm… Yeah, about that…

We have a whopping two additional titles to tell you about this week. On the Wii U eShop, you can grab Mighty Bomb Jack, where you control Jack through 16 levels of a pyramid to defeat the Belzebut and rescue the royal Pamera family. Over on the 3DS eShop, you can download Life Force, where you can go solo or with a friend blast through waves of enemies in six stages of intense action, switching from horizontal and vertical-scrolling environments. Unfortunately, though, that is all we are getting from Nintendo this week, in terms of new additions to the eShop.

There are some sales and other news, though. First up, remember that you only have a few more days remaining to cash in on the Wii Fit U free 30-day trial offer. It all ends on January 31. Also, we have yet another sale on Shin Megami Tensei IV for Nintendo 3DS eShop. It will be only $29.99 from January 27 until February 3. Fractured Soul is another great game from the 3DS eShop (read our review), and it is on sale starting today. Get it for only $5.99 until 9 AM Pacific Time on February 6.

With that, we are at the end of this week’s Nintendo Download. 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.
