Happy New Year – It’s Digital Download Thursdays!
Another Thursday, and another quick update on what’s going on in the world of Nintendo’s digital storefronts. I’m getting ready for some serious gaming at tonight’s New Year’s Eve party, so I won’t go into detail regarding this week’s digital downloads. However, if you haven’t yet had a chance to play the classic N64 snowboarding game 1080, you should give it a try. I remember having a great time with it back in the ‘90s!
This week’s Nintendo Download includes the following featured content:
- Virtual Console on Wii U
- 1080o Snowboarding – Get ready to experience one of the first realistic snowboarding games ever created! In this Nintendo 64 classic, select from five characters, each with his or her own attributes and special tricks. Pick a snowboard that best suits your rider, and then head down the mountain and feel the sensation of speed that’ll make you forget all about the cold.
