Puzzles are the theme in this week’s Nintendo Download!
The 3DS only got a single game and a demo and the Wii U got eight games and a demo in this latest edition of the Nintendo Download. Are you ready? Let’s jump right into the action!
The trend took a huge turn for the worst in today’s eShop update. The 3DS received technically zero unique games as the only title that did appear is also available on the Wii U. That title is Word Puzzles by POWGI. If you have some amiibos handy, it is advertised that EVERY single one will work with this game. So if you have a normal 3DS/XL/2DS you will need the amiibo reader adapter to use this functionality. Those with the New 3DS XL can just scan the amiibos directly to the touch screen. There is a free demo available today on the 3DS, so if you were looking into Petit Novel Series: Harvest December, now is your chance as you can play the demo prior to purchasing.
The Wii U side gets three Wii virtual console games with Big Brain Academy, Kuru Kuru Kururin, and Polarium Advance. Highlighting on the Wii U eShop is Oddworld: New ‘n’ Tasty. This is a remake of the classic Oddworld: Abe’s Oddysee. Featuring HD visuals, new music tracks and updated gameplay, you can now help Abe escape the meat factory on the Wii U. Also available are Word Puzzles by POWGI, Cutie Clash, Cutie Pets Go Fishing, and Outside the Realm. If you were looking at Vector Assault, there is now a demo available to check out.
As always, you can check out the full list of all new releases, prices, discounts, and more below. Be sure to share your thoughts on this week’s downloads, and let us know if you plan on downloading any of them.
