While this week“s Nintendo Download arrived later than usual, it“s still pretty packed with content. First and foremost: Tomorrow is a day many have been waiting for: the release of Splatoon for Wii U (as well as Wave 4 amiibos, hey)! You can grab a Splatoon theme on your 3DS to celebrate, too.
For those who“ve kept on reading instead of immediately closing their tab to lie in wait: also new to Wii U this week is Don“t Starve: Giant Edition. And it comes with a giant incentive: if you purchase the game, you also get one free code for the full game to share with a friend. Check out the trailer
This week“s Virtual Console releases help wrap up Mega May with a surprise, and even offer a little something extra. First off: Mega Man Battle Network 4 Blue Moon & Red Sun arrive today. And (surprise!) Mega Man Zero 3 is also coming this week. Check out the full Mega May lineup here. Last but not least, the little something extra...an eclectic NES beat-“em-up also hits the Wii U Virtual Console this week: It“s Rival Turf! Do check out the box-art for this very 90s game; it“s rather...incredible.
As mentioned on their Twitter yesterday, Nicalis is having sale that lasts until June 18th. Every single one of their games available on the eShop (that“s 1,001 Spikes on Wii U, plus Cave Story, VVVVVV, NightSky and more on 3DS) are 50% off their regular price.
A major update is now available for PokÃ©mon Shuffle players that makes PokÃ©mon much easier to catch than before, and adds welcome features and new levels to the game. Read more here. And speaking of PokÃ©mon stuff--that“s what many of the new themes this week involve. You can grab PokÃ©mon Shuffle, Mega Charizard X, and Eevee Collection themes to give your 3DS some extra flair.
Before I go, there“s even more to mention. Best Buys in North America are having a StreetPass Event this weekend to coincide with the Nintendo World Championship stuff, the Miiverse is having a Splatoon-centric contest (so head there for more info), and Codename S.T.E.A.M. is having an â€œamiibo Agentâ€ tournament (which you can learn about here). That about does it.
