Only six titles for today, but make sure to stay tuned in later today for the Nintendo Direct!
The newest Nintendo Download is officially here with new games, discounts, and events. Are you ready? Let’s jump right into the action!
Today’s update is smaller in size than the previous weeks, but that is no problem as a Nintendo Direct later today will be mentioning tons of new games on the way! There are only six titles today with four being added to Wii U eShop and two on the 3DS eShop. It should come as no surprise that the highlight of the Nintendo Download is The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD. This is a remastered version of the GameCube/Wii edition that gets the full HD treatment. Not only that, there are even new features such as amiibo support and inventory management. Re-explore the Twilight Realm as Wolf Link in this epic adventure! You can pick it up or download the game tomorrow March 4. The Wii U eShop also managed to get a virtual console game with PAC-MAN 2: The New Adventures. Also available are Chasing Dead and STEEL RIVALS.
Over on the 3DS side is a lonely pair of action/adventure titles with Parascientific Escape Cruise in the Distant Seas and The Hand of Panda. With Parascientific Escape Cruise in the Distant Seas you are a high school student with two psychic powers. Everything starts to go wrong after boarding a cruise ship. Is this by mistake or is something more evil going on? Check it out to see how this plays out. With The Hand of Panda, it is a memory/reflex type of action going on. You control this unlikely hero who is recruited by a Master item breaker. Learn to dodge his distractions while training to discover the hidden truth.
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.
