Nintendo Download: March 20, 2014

This week’s Nintendo Download contains a wide range of games, as it seems there is not too many genres that are left out. We’ve got three new titles on Wii U, three games on 3DS, one new demo on 3DS, and some big discounts on both eShops. Let’s jump right in!

First up, let’s talk handheld. The Nintendo 3DS eShop gets Pokémon Battle Trozei, a Pokémon-themed puzzler that is sure to please. Pure Chess brings a beautiful 3D chess game to the 3DS. Yumi’s Odd Odyssey from Atlus should make most JRPG fans happy. Also, a free demo of Conception II: Children of the Seven Stars is coming on March 25, with the full game hitting the 3DS eShop on April 15. As far as discounts go, Renegade Kid 3DS games are on sale from now until April 3, including Mutant MuddsATV Wild Ride 3D, and Bomb Monkey.

Over on the Wii U eShop, we have Volleyball spiking into the Virtual Console. For you Hello Kitty fans who are impatiently awaiting the next Mario Kart, you can download Hello Kitty Kruisers. Also, Pure Chess comes to the Wii U eShop with even more stunning visuals than the 3DS version. The big news on the Wii U is that Wii Sports Club will be free to play for everyone from March 21-23. Also, there are several Nordic Games on sale (up to 66% off), including Jeopardy and Wheel of Fortune on the Wii U eShop until April 1.
