by Peter Paltridgeon January 28, 2016
This week in the Nintendo Download, it’s a double-dose of old-school Final Fantasy gameplay, one classic, one new. Final Fantasy Explorers is a throwback title where you master job classes and defeat monsters with summons, just as in the early titles from the FF series…but there are a few new additions, such as the ability […]

Nothing But Brutal Shootouts In This Week’s Nintendo Download

by Peter Paltridgeon January 7, 2016
This week in the Nintendo Download, it’s nothing but shooters, but not the kind modern gamers might think of. These are all NES Zapper games, reconfigured to support Wii Remotes. Hogan’s Alley and Wild Gunman are finally playable without the need of an old tube television (the Zapper doesn’t work with HDTVs), and The Adventures […]

Let It Snow(board) In This Week’s Nintendo Download

by Peter Paltridgeon December 31, 2015
It’s another slow week in the Nintendo Download, with the only notable release being the N64’s 1080 Snowboarding. In addition, the majority of the games on sale are incredibly obscure. And then there’s something called “Molly Maggot.” Not an exciting way to close out 2015. It’s worth noting Europe got Super Mario RPG last week. […]

Cloud And Minecraft Arrive In This Week’s Nintendo Download

by Peter Paltridgeon December 18, 2015
This week in the Nintendo Download, the unthinkable has happened: Minecraft is finally playable on the system. Did it arrive too late? Did Mojang goof up by not optimizing the second screen for extra controls? (Probably.) Better late than never: you can begin bricklaying today on the Wii U for $29.99, which covers the game […]

The Closest Thing We’ll Get To F-Zero In This Week’s Nintendo Download

by Peter Paltridgeon December 10, 2015
This week in the Nintendo Download, the ultra-faced-paced racer known as Fast Racing NEO has arrived on the Wii U. With the NX looming in the near distance, it doesn’t look like we’re ever getting an F-Zero game on the Wii U console, but Fast Racing NEO mimics the action rather admirably. Also look out […]
