Nintendo Download: April 3, 2014

Hey, hey, hey! It’s Thursday, which means another round of Nintendo digital release information. It’s a little feature we all know as the Nintendo Download! Let’s jump right in!

This week, we got an early release, as Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate – Deluxe Edition released on Tuesday. This is a Wii U eShop re-release of the 3DS retail-release game. Evofish also migrates over from iOS/Android to the Wii U eShop today. The other Wii U titles are all Virtual Console games from the Game Boy Advance. Advance Wars, Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga, and Metroid Fusion are all available for download to play on your TV or GamePad.

Now, let’s move over to handheld gaming and talk 3DS eShop for a bit. First up is Rusty’s Real Deal Baseball, Nintendo’s next step into the free-to-play market. Download it for free, play some baseball, and haggle prices with Rusty about in-game purchases. Next up is Super Monkey Ball 3D, which makes its way to the 3DS eShop, following its retail release three years ago. And if you are in the mood to find hidden objects, a couple Mystery Case Files games hit the eShop today. You can download both Mystery Case Files: Ravenhearst and Mystery Case Files: Dire Grove to your Nintendo 3DS.

One final thing to note: If you already own Dr. Mario on the Wii U eShop, or if you purchase it between April 3-10, you will qualify for a $5 discount on Dr. Luigi. So, if you have been thinking about both games, but haven’t purchased them yet, now might be a great time to do so.

That’s it for this week’s Nintendo Download.
