This week“s Nintendo Download has unique eXperiences, the newest SEGA 3D Classic, another hardcore Wii U Virtual Console release, a bunch of indie favorites, and more. For starters, let“s talk 3D Gunstar Heroes. One of my favorite SEGA Genesis games ever is perfectly ported and portable with new modes and features, including the ability to possess all combinations of all the game“s weapon choices right from the start.
This week“s Virtual Console releases seem strategically placed. The Wii U is graced with Advance Wars 2: Black Hole Rising, as well as Genghis Khan II: Clan of the Grey Wolf. Speaking of strategy, some brain-power is needed to play The Bridge, a 2D puzzler arriving on the Wii U eShop today. The Bridge isn“t the only unique indie game arriving this week: there“s also Crab Cakes Rescue, Factorum, Mortar Melon, and Woah Dave! While you“re taking a look at all those titles, you may want to grab the Demo Version of Hatsune Miku: Project Mirai DX as well.
There are a few more things of note popping up on both eShops. Little Battlers eXperience is out on the 3DS eShop today, and (from August 21st through 23rd) the Splatoon Testfire is making its grand return. Whether you“re fighting LBX robots or blasting your friends with ink, there“s definitely some multiplayer fun to be had. The Testfire happens each day this weekend from 3-5 PM PT, 6-8 PM ET.
This week“s sales offer humongous discounts (up to 66% off) for certain Capcom games, like Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate from August 24th through 31st. Devil Survivor: Overclocked is $19.99 again until August 24th. Senran Kagura Burst is also $19.99 until September 15th. There are plenty more sales this week, so be sure to check here after the Nintendo Download goes live for more marked down games, including the Capcom ones Nintendo didn“t list in their Press Release this morning.
This is the second week in a row Nintendo hasn“t highlighted any new themes. But...there“s certainly more than enough content in this week“s Download!
