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. […]

by Peter Paltridgeon December 24, 2015
Indie developer Cypronia has announced a big giveaway for their Wii U game Cube Life. Until very recently, Minecraft couldn’t be played on Wii U, and a smaller company took advantage of a neglected console with a widely young user base. The premise is different (you’re on an island), but the mechanics are vastly the […]

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 […]

A New Arcade Wants Quarters In This Week’s Nintendo Download

by Peter Paltridgeon November 12, 2015
This week’s Nintendo Download is even sleepier than last week’s. I can’t say everything here is going to interest anyone, especially when the main offering is a freemium badge-collecting game. However, a new Nintendo Direct is about to hit one hour from when this item is being posted, so we can assume all the good […]

by Peter Paltridgeon October 29, 2015
This week in the Nintendo Download, things are a bit slow. Octodad: Dadliest Catch has been ported to Wii U, another GBA Harvest Moon has been added to Virtual Console, and Atlus’s Code Of Princess is dirt cheap. The bigger news is free: if you don’t have The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes yet, […]
