Digital Download Thursdays

There are a couple of notable things this week. First up, the Bravely Second: End Layer demo goes up today on the eShop. It’s a completely separate quest and story from the main game, so if you’re an RPG fan be sure to check it out. Mega Man Battle Network 6 is going up on the Wii U Virtual Console today. Plus, don’t forget that tomorrow you can pick up 12 Nintendo Selects titles across the Wii U, 3DS, and original Wii.

This week’s Nintendo Download includes the following featured content:

  • Nintendo eShop on Wii U
    • Star Ghost – Save the galaxy from the Metagons in this explosive shoot-’em-up by former Rare and Retro Studios developer Rhys Lewis. Star Ghost features procedurally generated levels, a unique control scheme and an atmospheric soundtrack from renowned composer David Wise. It is available exclusively in Nintendo eShop on Wii U. Click here to see the trailer.
  • Virtual Console on Wii U
    • MEGA MAN BATTLE NETWORK 6 CYBEAST FALZAR and MEGA MAN BATTLE NETWORK 6 CYBEAST GREGAR – After moving with his family to Cyber City, Lan, with the help of Mega Man, must intervene before an ancient creature of enormous power destroys the network and the world. Game content is the same for MEGA MAN BATTLE NETWORK 6 CYBEAST FALZAR and MEGA MAN BATTLE NETWORK 6 CYBEAST GREGAR, but NetNavi chips and other items may differ.
  • Nintendo eShop on Nintendo 3DS
    • Blast ’Em Bunnies – Blast ’Em Bunnies is an endless first-person shooter in which you must defend your rabbit burrow using fun new types of weapons and ammo. From Watermelon Machineguns firing sticky raspberries to Turnip Mortars firing explosive Pepper Bombs (which release heat-seeking chili seeds) you’d better get shooting those coins to buy all of the upgrades. Click here to see the trailer.
    • BRAVELY SECOND: END LAYER DEMO The Ballad of the Three Cavaliers – Square Enix’s critically acclaimed Bravely Default game is all set to enjoy a much-lauded sequel, and you can try a portion of it right now, for free. In the BRAVELY SECOND: END LAYER DEMO The Ballad of the Three Cavaliers, you’ll return to the land of Luxendarc and embark on a bonus adventure not found in the main game. Make sure to try out different jobs during your adventure. Whether they’re formidable fighters and mages looking to test their skills, giant trolls with a chip on their shoulder or alien entities with a bent for drama, all of them pose a risky challenge … along with the irresistible promise of great rewards.
  • New DLC
    • Fire Emblem Fates: Revelation – This third path in the Fire Emblem Fates story reveals many secrets not available in the  Birthright or  Conquest versions. Players who own either Fire Emblem Fates: Birthright or Fire Emblem Fates: Conquest can purchase  Revelation for $19.99 via the Dragon’s Gate in game. Once purchased, a third option will appear at the Branch of Fate moment of the game: “Refuse to Choose a Side.” Additional content will be released on a weekly basis through April 21 and is all part of Map Pack 1 available now for purchase.
