Jonathan Higgins posted a article in NintendoThis 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 ( ), and PokÃ©mon Shuffle (if you purchase six jewels, you“ll get six more for free). And last but certainly not least, that Shiny Rayquaza Event I mentioned earlier was highlighted in this week“s Download. For more information (the duration of the event is August 12th through September 14th), check here. No new themes were highlighted this week, unfortunately. Will you be grabbing Pandora“s Tower this week? What about any of the other games on sale? Be sure to let us know!
Jonathan Higgins posted a article in NintendoThis weeks Nintendo Download has a ton to get excited about for Wii U owners! I“ll get to the Virtual Console stuff first, since I actually alluded to it last week, and it was teased earlier. A â€œtriple deluxeâ€ birthday package of Kirby games arrives today, featuring Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards ($9.99 or $1.99 to upgrade), Kirby Squeak Squad ($9.99), and (for the first time since January 29th, in North America) a Wii retail game available to purchase digitally! Kirby“s Return to Dream Land will be available for $19.99, which is much cheaper than what you“ll find the physical version going for these days. Just in case you need a refresher on how these games work, I created a thread back in January explaining things. Xeodrifter arrives on the Wii U today as well. I“m happy folks will get to experience one of my favorite games from last year on the big screen. And I“m even happier that it“s cross-buy! If you already own the 3DS version, the Wii U one is yours for no additional cost! Otherwise, it“s $9.99. In addition to Xeodrifter, there“s also BADLAND: Game of the Year Edition, a side-scrolling action game. And there“s a Just Dance 2016 Demo for those interested in that. Nintendo also highlights the big Splatoon update coming soon . You can check here for more information on that, or eagerly await August 5th, 2015. This week“s noteworthy sales include Eliot Quest on Wii U ($10.99), and several titles from EnjoyUp Games including 99Moves and Abyss. And LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham is now $19.99; that“s a permanent price-drop. In case you didn“t already notice, Miiverse has been entirely redesigned; they mentioned that as well. Last but not least, this week“s new theme pays homage to Etrian Odyssey Untold 2. Be sure to check the Nintendo eShop for even more updates and activities when this week“s Download goes live at 12 PM ET/9 AM PT. Are you excited for all the Kirby this week? Will you be playing Xeodrifter for the first time on Wii U, or making the jump to the big screen? Be sure to let us know!
