Nintendo Download (July 10, 2014)

Summer is in full swing, and so is the Nintendo Download. Today, we get several games that cover many genres. From sports to simulation to puzzles to action, this week’s eShop releases almost have it all.

If you are a fan of the Unlimited series, you probably already know that ONE PIECE Unlimited World Red launches today on both Wii U and 3DS. Luffy and the Straw Hat Crew are ready to dive into a new adventure. Are you? Speaking of games that release on both systems, Bases Loaded hits both eShops in the Virtual Console today.

Other releases include The Letter on Wii U, My & My Pets 3D on 3DS, and Rabi Laby 3 on 3DS. (Confession: When I first read the press release, I saw “Raby Party,” which would have ben an entirely different game!) There is also a free demo of Jett Rocket II: The Wrath of Taiki out today on the 3DS, and to celebrate, the full version is only $4.99 for a limited time.

Speaking of discounts, here are some more. Swords & Soldiers 3D is only $3.99 until July 31, Witch & Hero is 30% off until July 31, and I’ve Got to Run! is 40% off from July 11-13. If you have been holding off on any of these games, now might be the time to act.

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

In addition to video games available at retail stores, Nintendo also offers a variety of content that people can download directly to their systems. Nintendo adds new games weekly to the Nintendo eShop on the Wii U system, as well as the Nintendo 3DS, Nintendo 2DS and Nintendo 3DS XL systems, the Nintendo DSi™ Shop for the Nintendo DSi system and the Wii™ Shop Channel for the Wii console.

The Nintendo eShop is a cash-based service that features a wide variety of content, including new and classic games, applications and demos. Users can add money to their account balances by using a credit card or purchasing a Nintendo eShop Card at a retail store and entering the code from the card. All funds from one card must be loaded in the Nintendo eShop on either Wii U or the Nintendo 3DS family of systems, but can be used in either Nintendo eShop if the systems are linked to a single Nintendo Network account.

The Wii Shop Channel offers games and applications and uses Wii Points™, which can be purchased via the Wii Shop Channel. The Nintendo DSi Shop offers games and applications and uses Nintendo DSi Points™, which can be purchased in the Nintendo DSi Shop. A Wii Points Card™ and Nintendo DSi Points Card™ can be purchased at retail locations. All points from one card must be redeemed in either the Wii Shop Channel or the Nintendo DSi Shop, respectively. They are not transferable and cannot be divided between the two systems.

Remember that Wii U, Wii, Nintendo 3DS, Nintendo 3DS XL, Nintendo 2DS and Nintendo DSi feature parental controls that let adults manage some of the content their children can access.
