Nintendo Digital Download Thursdays

As we gear up for the Nintendo Switch launch in just three weeks (three weeks!), it’s understandable if the trickle of games on the eShop start to slow down a bit. This week is slim pickings, that’s for sure. 3DS doesn’t even get a virtual console game, which is pretty rare.

The Wii U does get a GBA classic, Mario vs. Donkey Kong. It’s a slightly different take on the classic Game Boy Donkey Kong game, but has some of the same puzzler mechanics of needing to get the key to the locked door to make it to the next level. It’s definitely a fun game and worth owning.



The rest of this week’s content is below:


This week’s Nintendo Download includes the following featured content:
  • Nintendo eShop on Nintendo 3DS
    • Azure Striker Gunvolt: The Anime – Put together by anime superstars LandQ Studios and Touhoku Shinkai, Inti Creates debuts an electrifying anime adaptation on the Azure Striker Gunvolt series. The anime presents a scenario that fans of the series will be familiar with, while simultaneously presenting a deeper look into the world of Azure Striker Gunvolt. Download today.
  • Virtual Console on Wii U
    • Mario vs. Donkey Kong – Donkey Kong just made off with all the Mini-Mario toys, and now it’s up to Mario to chase his longtime nemesis and retrieve the stolen goods. In this GameBoy Advance action-puzzler, leap and battle through increasingly difficult levels as you use switches, conveyor belts and hammers to overcome the hordes of enemies that block your way.
