Nintendo Download: Wonder Boy: The Dragon's Trap

The Switch keeps the hits coming week by week, even if they're multi-platform releases at this point. It's a fairly light offering with Wonder Boy: The Dragon's Trap and Fatal Fury, but the pace has been better than the Wii U and 3DS e...   read

Nintendo Download: Splatoon 2 Global Testfire

It's a really weird Nintendo Download this week, as there's a ton of different platforms to juggle. For one there's Android, as Super Mario Run finally lost its iOS exclusivity. In other portable news, Japanese Rail Sim 3D and Super De...   read

Nintendo Download: The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth+

It's another exciting week for the Switch, as a ton of indies are coming to it. They might be ports, and some of them might be hella old, but hey, several of them are real good ones. That list includes The Binding of Issac Afterbirth+,...   read

Nintendo Download: Blaster Master Zero

The time has come to shift these updates in a different direction. On any given week you might see a lack of Wii U or 3DS releases now that the Switch has come into play. Nintendo even expects it to outsell the Wii U in just one year! Sad d...   read

Nintendo Download: The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

The day has finally come! I don't have to write these, biding time for the Switch's launch, as Nintendo's newest system is arriving tonight at midnight. On the US Switch eShop you'll find Zelda: Breath of the Wild (also on Wii U), alon...   read

Nintendo Download: Harvest Moon 64

As we gear up for the Switch in just under two weeks, the Wii U eShop is gearing down. In addition to Harvest Moon 64, it's also hosting forma.8, Ghost Blade HD, Maze Break, and Vaccine. The 3DS is super low key this week with Shovel K...   read

Nintendo Download: Ogre Battle 64

It's another what's old is new again week, with Ogre Battle 64: Person of Lordly Caliber as the headliner on the Wii U Virtual Console. Also on Wii U is Back to Bed, Wall Ball, and Color Cubes. I still recall many conversations in my y...   read

Nintendo Download: Azure Striker Gunvolt: The Anime

I'm glad that Azure Striker Gunvolt has some sort of audience. An audience big enough, at least, to warrant to full entries, a spinoff, and an anime. It came out of nowhere with none of the hype of Mighty No. 9 and fully surpassed it critic...   read

Nintendo Download: Fire Emblem Heroes

It feels weird listing mobile games in these Nintendo Download posts, but that's something I'm going to have to do two to three times a year, it seems. Out today is Fire Emblem Heroes on Android and iOS. Although the initial presentati...   read

Nintendo Download: Pokemon Bank for Sun and Moon

Nintendo is getting creative with its Nintendo Download announcements, filling out entries with events and apps. One such event is the "Choose your Legends" promotion, which lets fans vote on who they want to appear in the upcoming Fire Emb...   read

Nintendo Download: Dragon Quest VIII: Journey of the Cursed King

We have liftoff! The eShop is a little more exciting this week with Dragon Quest VIII for 3DS, which is also joined by Punch Club, Color Cubes, and a Poochy & Yoshi's Woolly World demo. Not bad given the past month's lull peri...   read

Nintendo Download: F-Zero X

I don't have any clever words of wisdom for this week -- there's literally just one game apiece for the Wii U and 3DS. F-Zero X for the former, and Shift DX for the latter. That's it! It's a shame Nintendo hasn't done anything wit...   read

Nintendo Download: Pokemon Snap

We're just a week away from the second Switch reveal, but for now, here's what's happening on Nintendo's legacy console and peppy portable. On Wii U, Pokemon Snap hits the Virtual Console, in addition to Spheroids, Cup Critters, and Zo...   read

Nintendo Download: Mario Kart 64

It's the holidays, so it's expected to be a light eShop drop, but this is really light. I wonder if anyone is going to try to capitalize on the zero competition going into the Switch's release? Either way, we have Mario Kart 64 on the ...   read

Nintendo Download: Shantae: Half-Genie Hero

It's a really brief Christmas drop for the eShop -- I guess most developers figure people already spent all their holiday cash on gifts. But then again, post-Christmas eShop gift cards are a thing! Either way, on Wii U we have Shantae:...   read

Nintendo Download: Super Mario Run

Weird! Today I get to talk about the release of a Nintendo mobile game -- it's been months since Miitomo dropped, but Super Mario Run is set to debut today worldwide on iOS. It's free-to-play (and $10 to buy), and will feature a non-endless...   read

The Wii U actually has several additions today, one new, one port, several Virtual Console games -- but hey, it's something. In addition to the shooter Teslapunk, you can also download Bridge Constructor Playground, Fire Emblem: Shadow...   read

Nintendo Download: Super Mario Maker 3DS

So uh, there isn't much here to go around this week. On Wii U, you're getting Advance Wars: Dual Strike on the Virtual Console. That's all she wrote. The 3DS is a bit more cheery, with Super Mario Maker 3DS, and a reminder for Swapdood...   read

Nintendo Download: Dragon Ball Fusions

Welcome to eShop life support. I'm your host, Chris Carter, and I hope you're having a good holiday week. As we anxiously await the March Switch date (and price, and really, any tangible information announcement coming in "2017"), you can p...   read

Nintendo Download: Pokemon Sun and Moon

After all that waiting Pokemon Sun and Moon are hitting the eShop and retail tomorrow, and will probably take up the rest of your year if you're going for a full Pokedex all over again. Also on 3DS you'll find Swapdoodle, Ohayou! Beginner's...   read

Nintendo Download: Mega Man X3 (3DS)

The time has come for another somber week of Nintendo Download. Ding dong the Wii U is (mostly) dead, and its shambling corpse still has a few old games to peddle. On Wii U you'll find Dungeon Hearts DX, Rhythm Heaven Fever (VC), and R...   read

Nintendo Download: Mario Party Star Rush

It's uh, a stale week unless you're really big into Mario Party, and I don't know a lot of people who are at this point in their long, fight-filled Mario Party careers. I think we've all had enough broken controllers, cartridges, discs...   read
