Nintendo Download: Mighty Bomb Jack

Today's Nintendo Download is yet another odd slow burn of the Virtual Console variety, with Mighty Bomb Jack hitting the Wii U. That's literally it for the Wii U. On the 3DS, Life Force is out -- that's the only new release for the 3DS. Exciting! As far as sales go, Fractured Soul is down to $5.99 until February 6th, Shin Megami Tensei IV is $29.99 until February 3rd, and Project X Zone is $20.

Nintendo Download: Castlevania II: Simon's Quest

Today is an odd day for the eShop, with Unepic gracing the Wii U storefront after its original PC release in 2011. Also appearing on the Wii U is F1 Race Stars: Powered Up Edition, and Castlevania II: Simon's Quest. You may r...

Nintendo Download: Chibi-Robo! Photo Finder

On the Wii U this week you can grab Gradius and Cocoto Magic Circus 2. That's it. Seriously, that's it! Yet again, Super Mario Bros. 3 is missing. It's not a lost cause though, as Gradius may not be the be...

Nintendo Download: Bravely Default demo

This is a pretty bizarre issue of Nintendo Download. Nintendo sent over the exact same listing as last week, with the sole addition of the Bravely Default 3DS demo and Mega Man X2 for the Wii U. Those are two killer...

Nintendo Download: Dr. Luigi

Aw yeah Luigi time! Dr. Luigi is hitting the Wii U on the 31st for $14.99. CastleStorm is also a thing, as is Super Punch-Out!!, one of my top 10 favorite SNES games ever. Select Ubisoft titles are also on sale, so check your...

Nintendo Download: 3D Streets of Rage

It's time for more Sega 3D Classics this week! But first, the Wii U gets Knytt Underground, Castlevania (NES VC), a Little Inferno discount ($4.99), and a Nano Assault Neo demo. There's not a whole lot to ponder ove...

Allez cuisine! Double Dragon hits Wii U, 3DS eShop

The original Double Dragon, the game that started it all, is now available on the Wii U and 3DS eShop. I don't know if it still holds up. I can tell you the movie starring Iron Chef America's Chairman does not. I can bet the cartoon doesn't, either. But, in the words of my uncle: that music is still balling. I've looped the trailer a few times already just listening to it.

Nintendo Download: Rush, and more Sega 3D Classics

This isn't a very exciting week for Wii U fans, as you're only getting two [old] additions -- Two Tribes' Rush has been remade, and Double Dragon is live on the Virtual Console. That's about it, folks. As usual the ...

Nintendo Download: Contra III, Super Hang-On 3D

Today is a very retro-centric edition of Nintendo Download, with quite a bit of Virtual Console actoon, and even a few new 3D Classics. As for the Wii U, we have Contra III: The Alien Wars, and temporary sales on the Mario se...

Nintendo Download: Super Mario 3D World

The Wii U has a particularly exciting week, with Super Mario 3D World launching tomorrow. In my opinion it's the best game on the Wii U so far, so take a look at our review and consider it an option alongside of your shiny ne...

There's a ton of variety this week on Nintendo plaforms on both the 3DS and Wii U. For the latter, we have Uncharted Waters: New Horizons on the Virtual Console, as well as Mario & Sonic at the Sochi 2014 Olympi...
