Welcome back folks, after a few weeks of absolutely nothing interesting, I am back bringing you the weekly Nintendo updates. Now that Nintendo has sorted out their business, I now know the schedule for updates and well, it’s not much different. Nintendo will now update the eShop, DSiWare and WiiWare stores at the same time sometime late on Thursday Nights for Australia. Keep in mind if you have a 3DS you can now access all previous DSiWare releases and all the new ones that I list as well. Neat huh?
Nintendo eShop (3DS) Donkey Kong (Gameboy, $6.00) – Known simply as Donkey Kong by Nintendo and dubbed Donkey Kong ’94 by fans, this is arguably one of the best Gameboy games ever to hit the fair monochrome Gameboy. Take control of Mario to rescue Pauline yet again in this updated spin on the arcade and NES classic. There’s over 101 levels in this one, so unlike some other Gameboy releases so far up on the eShop, this one is worth your money.
The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening DX (Gameboy Color, $9.00) – If you’ve ever played this game before you have probably already re-downloaded it and won’t even be reading this. For everyone else, you can be assured that this isn’t watered down simply for handhelds. You’re getting a top of the line Zelda adventure here and one unlike any other. Nine dollars may seem steep but like Donkey Kong this one is packed with content. Pick it up.
Also up since the launch of the eShop has been Super Mario Land ($6) , Alleyway and Tennis ($4.50).
Remember to pick up your copy of 3D Classics ExciteBike, which is free until July 7th.
DSiWare and WiiWare Airport Mana: First Flight (200 Points on DSi, 500 Points on WiiWare) – Same game here on both system essentially, just depends on how you want to play it. The game is a simple time management game with cute little airplanes to control. On both WiiWare and DSiWare, the games have a great presentation and a charming look to it.
