Nintendo Download: April 10, 2014

It was a bit late coming in today, but it’s finally here! It’s time for the Nintendo Download!

This week is a bit of a mixed bag with three Wii U games – two of which are GBA Virtual Console games. Those two are Kirby & The Amazing Mirror and WarioWare, Inc.: Mega Microgame$. Also on Wii U is My Exotic Farm, which  comes alongside a permanent price drop of My Farm to $4.99 (was $7.99). Speaking of price drops, DuckTales: Remastered is on sale until April 17 for 50% off. If you’ve not downloaded this remastered classic, now is the time.

Let’s move over to the Nintendo 3DS for more new games and discounts. Starting today, you can download LEGO The Hobbit, Conception II: Children of the Seven Stars, Boxzle, and Governor of Poker all from the eShop. On April 15, other than paying taxes, you can download Atlantic Quest. As far as discounts go, Escape from Zombie City is 50% off from April 12-27, and select G-Style Co. games (Crazy Construction, Chain Blaster, Undead Bowling, & Jump Trials Supreme) will also be 50% off during that same timeframe.

That’s it for this week’s Nintendo Download. Don’t forget, though, that next week is the day many have been waiting for, as Super Mario Bros. 3 will finally hit the Wii U and 3DS eShops.

They are not transferable and cannot be divided between the two systems.
