Nintendo Digital Download Thursdays

There’s a few things of note this week on the eShop! First up is a brand new game for the 3DS called Tank Troopers. Nintendo unveiled this title back in September and it’s finally made its way out. The game supports up to six players in multiplayer mode with a single copy of the game. Over 30 custom tanks with 30 stages to blow up. The game runs a very reasonable $7.99.

 

 

As we mentioned yesterday, Ogre Battle 64 will be available on the Wii U Virtual Console later today. If you’re into tactical RPGs, this one could be for you!

 

 

This week’s Nintendo Download includes the following featured content:
  • Nintendo eShop on Nintendo 3DS
    • Tank Troopers – ATTENTION! Calling all troopers for six-player tank warfare! Choose a tank, pick troopers and battle your friends via local wireless. Each trooper has a special ability, from electric shocks to healing. Deploy them tactically to win more than 30 custom tanks with unique stats. An engaging single-player mode contains 30 stages, so you’ll have to devise a multitude of strategies and maneuvers to conquer them all. Battle with bombs, on teams or in a free-for-all – but always fight! Fight! FIGHT! (When playing in multiplayer mode, additional games and systems are required and are sold separately.)
