Nintendo Download: March 13, 2014

Are you ready to download…!!!?? (Sorry. These keep getting more stupid every week!) We’ve got a somewhat full list of games this week for download, at least for Nintendo 3DS, provided by the people over at Nintendo of America. Let’s jump right in!

Wii U is kind of lacking this week. In fact, there are no new games for download on the Wii U eShop. There is, however, some new downloadable content for CastleStorm, and the three Zen pinball games are all 50% off from March 17-31, but that is it.

The Nintendo 3DS, by contrast, seems to be where the focus is this week. Yoshi’s New Island kicks it off with its launch at midnight tonight. Everything else is available today. Super Mario Bros. 2: The Lost Levels, GalagaMadagascar 3 & The Croods Prehistoric Party Combo Pack, Bubble Pop World, Cube Tactics, and Lola’s ABC Party are all out on the 3DS eShop. On top of all that, a demo of WAKEDAS also goes live today. Oh, right… SteamWorld Dig is also 50% off starting today, through March 16.

And that is it for 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.
