This week“s Nintendo Download offers a surprise choice for the Wii U Virtual Console, a shiny object, a handful of sales, and more.
For starters, let“s mention Wind-up Knight 2, a popular mobile platformer that“s making its way to the Wii U eShop today. If platforming isn“t your thing, and you need a little more meat on your bones... Pandora“s Tower arrives on the Wii U Virtual Console today. As a former Operation Rainfall guy, that makes me all warm and fuzzy.
While it may seem like Nintendo reached out to XSEED to make this happen, and thus opened the door for third-party releases on the platform, that's not the case. XSEED only had the rights to the physical version of the game. And hey, It's worth noting that Pandora's Tower was published by Nintendo in other regions, and has already hit the Wii U overseas. Also — this is the first Wii retail game that can be played using only the Gamepad, if that“s your style. Pandora“s Tower can be purchased for $19.99.
In addition to those two games are several sales across both the Wii U and 3DS eShops. There are handfuls of games on sale like 3D Game Collection, Murder on the Titanic, Suspension Railroad Simulator, Bombing Bastards, Jeopardy! and Wheel of Fortune from Nordic Games, Stone Shire, Nano Assault EX, and more! Be sure to check out each respective eShop for a full list of games on sale; they are numerous this week!
There are activities happening on Codename S.T.E.A.M. (a tournament), Art Academy Home Studio (
