Wondering what to buy for your DSi, 3DS or Wii this week? Johnny Kung Fu is on the eShop for 3DS gamers which has you trying to rescue your girlfriend from Mr Wang Gang (oh, please…). Read on for the rest of Nintendo’s offering this week.
If you were worried about Nintendo not providing enough downloadable content, this week sees a multitude of games and in-game goodies for you to spend those precious points or pocket money on.
If you still have some Nintendo Points and in the mood for some retro gaming, the Game Boy Color version of Wario Land II is available this week for all 3DS owners, but if you fancy something for the Wii, you could try Double Dragon II.
Frogger is an all-time classic, every gamer should have played some variation of it at some point in their life as it’s one of the foundations of videogaming history and no, 3D Frogger does NOT count since most games that have ‘3D’ in the title tend to be abominations.
More downloadable games arrive for a Nintendo device near you, soon with Rayman coming to Vrtual Console for the 3DS while Mega Man is scheduled for the Wii and a new 3DS game has you playing cards while remembering a childhood sweetheart.
Nintendo plod on with their downloadable offerings and this week sees Kirby land on the 3DS’ Virtual Console, while a Rayman Origins demo also becomes available and a new demo arrives on WiiWare.
Apparently, WiiWare sales are “almost non-existant” and while that’s no surprise, Nintendo have decided to bring back some 1980’s classics via the Virtual Console on the 3DS and Wii, but to further damage the “almost non-existant” sales, you will have to fork out a whopping 900 Wii Points for Super Hang-On.
For the first time EVER, Nintendo are offering you the opportunity to buy video content through the eShop for the 3DS, but is asking 90p too much for a cartoon just because it’s in 3D and optimised for the Nintendo 3DS?
This week sees The Legend of Zelda arrive on the 3DS through the Virtual Console, but if that doesn’t interest you and prefer some classic fighting action, you may want to head on over to WiiWare and take part in a first for the Wii Virtual Console.
Maybe not, but a demo of Farming Simulator 2012 is available for the 3DS this week, along with Pirates Assault which launches on DSiWare and even a return of the Kirby Channel with more free episodes over the next six months.
