Nintendo eShop Digital Download Thursdays

It’s a bit sparse for new releases this week, but it’s quality over quantity, baby! Nintendo’s highly anticipated Super Mario Run hits iOS devices today. It’s the first Mario game you can play with one hand!


One of my favorite puzzle series makes a return with a brand new entry: Picross e7. It’s coming to the 3DS eShop today and will include massive 20×15-size Mega Picross puzzles.


A cult classic, Excitebots: Trick Racing is the latest Wii game to go digital for the Wii U. If you like crazy tracks and crazier gameplay, then this one is for you!


This week’s Nintendo Download includes the following featured content:
  • Nintendo on iOS
    • Super Mario Run – The first-ever mobile game featuring the most iconic video game hero of all time will be available later today to download on Apple’s App Store and is available for iPhone and iPad. Super Mario Run is the first Super Mario Bros. game developed specifically for mobile devices and is playable with just one hand.
  • Wii Retail on Wii U
    • Excitebots: Trick Racing – Trick Racing gets redefined! Pilot your Robotic insect or animal racer around the tracks at high speeds while performing stunts in this Wii game. Fly off of massive jumps, crash through bowling pins, spin around high wires or assemble a poker hand in the craziest races ever.
