DSiWare

It feels like we've been waiting forever, but finally, New Super Luigi U is here. This release serves as DLC to New Super Mario Bros. U, until the stand-alone disc arrives. On the Virtual Console, you're getting Mario Bros. (...
The Wii U and 3DS have at least one new game each on offer today, with the Wii U launching Mutant Mudds Deluxe -- an enhanced port of the 3DS and PC games with new levels. The 3DS is getting the bulk of the offerings however,...
Not a whole lot is on offer this week. On the Wii U side of things, Spelunker is hitting the Wii U Virtual Console, as is Yoshi for a limited time (June 12th to July 11th) at a $0.30 price. Trine 2: Director's Cut is discount...
You're out of luck if you aren't a fan of Spelunker, as that's pretty much the only real thing on offer today for Europe's Nintendo Download via the Virtual Console. If you're into discounts, Spelunker is €3.49 / £...


It's a puff ball kind of week, as three Kirby games are hitting the Wii U Virtual Console -- Kirby's Dream Land 3, Kirby Super Star, and Kirby's Dream Course. If you buy two of the aforementioned titles by May 30th, you'll ge...
Europeans have a lot to look forward to today, as Kirby's Dream Course (one of my favorite Kirby games) and Kirby Super Star (one of the best platformers of all time) headline the Wii U Virtual Console. If you own Kirby's Adv...
Today is not a particularly shiny Nintendo Download day, as the bulk of it is retro-centric. The Wii U will actually be getting a few things this week, with Super Mario Bros. 2 on the Wii U Virtual Console, as well as Super G...
The combination of puzzle and platforming is one of my favorite hybrid genres of all time. There's something about having to figure out challenges on the fly while testing your twitch capabilities that makes for a unique expe...
Headlining this week's Nintendo Download is Mario and Donkey Kong: Minis on the Move ($9.99), which got a rave review from our own Tony Ponce. Also, SpeedX 3D Hyper Edition ($2.99) is set for the 3DS eShop, as well as the DSi...
Today is a pretty lively day on the Wii U and 3DS eShop storefronts, even if pretty much everything is a re-release. In a strange turn of events, Tank! Tank! Tank! will be free on the Wii U eShop, with paid DLC in tow. Kung F...
Today is a happy day for Wii U Rayman fans, as the Rayman Legends Challenge App is live today on the eShop. It features a challenge mode that can be played either solo or co-op, and it'll have daily and weekly challenges, as ...
There's a pretty weird mix of offerings today, all of which are 3DS related. Starting this afternoon, you can pick up Harvest Moon 3D: The Tale of Two Towns (research this old retail title before you buy it), Mystery Murders:...
It's a decent week ahead of us in terms of Nintendo downloads, as the 3DS and Wii U are getting a few games each this week. On the 3DS front, we have Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Summoner: Soul Hackers coming April 16th on the e...
There's quite a bit of diversity today on the Nintendo Download front, as the Wii U, 3DS, and Wii are all getting content. The Wii U will front Toki Tori 2 (Wii U eShop, $13.49 until April 25th), which I'll have a review up f...
The 3DS continues it's streak of original, exclusive games as it gets HarmoKnight ($14.99) today. In other 3DS news, Legend of the River King (3DS VC, $4.99, an and awesome fishing title, by the way) is available, as are full...
The 3DS is red hot again this week with Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon, and Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity, which are both available on March 24th. Gates to Infinity will have a free DLC dungeon, the Poké...

It's a 3DS kind of day, as basically every update in today's edition of Nintendo Download is eShop related. First off there's the brand new Kersploosh!, which I'll have a review for later today. The rest of the offerings are ...
This week's Nintendo Download has something for just about everyone. Bit.Trip Presents Runner2 is fantastic and it's available now via the Wii U eShop. Also on the console side of things, Retro City Rampage has arrived o...
The Wii U will be getting something today, in the form of F-Zero for 30 cents (Wii U Virtual Console), and Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate and Trine 2: Director's Cut demos. Likewise, the 3DS will also be getting a Monster Hunter d...
Today is one of the most boring episodes of Nintendo Download yet, as the featured app is Wii Street U -- a program that lets you view virtual streets via Google Maps, like a billion other devices that you can actually take o...
If you have some coins to spare, you can grab four new games right now from Club Nintendo: Birds & Beans (DSiWare, 100 Coins), Metal Torrent (DSiWare, 150 Coins), Paper Mario (Wii Virtual Console/Nintendo 64, 200 Coins), ...
Be prepared for a load of non-exciting news on the Nintendo front this week. The Wii U is getting its first ever digital-download only release in Fist of the North Star: Ken's Rage 2 ($59.99). Before you pick it up, make sure...
The Wii U is getting something this week in the form of a game that was released on PC, Mac, Xbox Live Arcade, and the PlayStation Network last year -- Puddle. If you haven't tried the wonderful game The Cave yet, check out C...
Frogs are my favorite animal. Yep, that's what I'm choosing to focus on in today's issue of Nintendo Download, because this week is one of the weakest offerings yet, and it features tons of animal games. That's alright though...
It's kind of a "meh" week for Nintendo Download fans, but it's far from worthless. Unchained Blades (which came out last year on the PSP in Japan, and this year in the US) leads the way today as the big full retail release on...
Mega Man 1 is finally hitting the 3DS Virtual Console, as is Super Mario Bros.: The Lost Levels. Outside of those two classics, Fluidity: Spin Cycle is ready to go for the 3DS eShop, as is Johnny Impossible and Mahjong 3D - W...
Things are kind of low key in this week's Nintendo Download, as there's a ton of old releases and some extremely dull new ones. On the 3DS, you can grab Wario Land 2, escapeVektor, New Super Mario Bros. 2 DLC, Mario Tennis Op...
Nintendo Download isn't looking bad this week, especially if you're a fan of Guild 01 and Chuck E. Cheese's. In the portable arena, you can pick up Crimson Shroud (3DS eShop), Art of Balance TOUCH! (3DS eShop), Ninja Gaiden (...
Even if nothing on offer this week is truly remarkable, the sheer volume of content is impressive in this week's Nintendo Download. For the 3DS, you can pick up Scribblenauts Unlimited (3DS eShop), LEGO Lord of the Rings (3DS...
Prepare to be disappointed this week if you have a Wii U -- the only offerings on the table are 3DS related, with no Wii U titles in sight. You can grab Aero Porter (eShop), Pac-Man (eShop VC), Invasion of the Alien Blobs! (D...
Stay young. Or single. Getting hitched changes everything. Thanksgiving turns from a joyous occasion of mindless gorging to a tricky affair at best, with in-laws, planning, babies, and stress to deal with. I'm going to use th...
You like gnomes, right? Of course you do! When they're not creeping you out or stealing your underpants, I guess they can be alright. Well today you're getting your weekly dose of gnome-age, whether you like it or not, with 2...
Nintendo Downloads are usually nothing to go bonkers over, but today, a number of you might be bouncing off the walls at a chance to buy these offerings. Firstly, if you don't own Cave Story four times already, you can pick u...
The absolute highlight of this week is The Denpa Men: They Came By Wave (eShop, $9.99). In a move no one expected, a demo was released last week, and this wacky AR Japanese eShop game is now available in North America.&n...
18th Gate is a hex-based SRPG that boasts a decent amount of content for a DSiWare game. You can play as multiple heroes, trek through 18 areas, and encounter randomized enemies and traps. The game is currently appr...
On August 19, New Super Mario Bros. 2 will be available to purchase both in brick-and-mortar stores and on the eShop. If you plan on downloading the game, I ask that you exercise extreme caution. Check for discounts of physic...
I'm hijacking the Nintendo Download from Chris this week because, dammit, you are all in danger! Commando: Steel Disaster ($7.99 on DSi or 3DS) may look like a fairly inoffensive Metal Slug clone, but don't be fooled! I play...
There rarely comes a time when I can mention The Who, Pinball Quest, and Kirby in the same article, but today is that day my friends! Granted, my connections are tenuous at best, because the only real pinball related thing to...
This week's Nintendo download content is bursting at the seams with things that you may or may not actually want. For example, there's some retro goodness à la old school Rayman astride this week's obligatory insipid p...
