Nintendo Download Store, 3DS Updated

As some of you might have experienced, last week’s 3DS 2.0.0-2U update gave users the eShop, Web Browser, and the ability to pause time in Ridge Racer. Oh wait, that’s just the game freezing…

Well anyway, that little nagging issue has been resolved in the 2.1.0-3U update just starting to roll out, in addition to a general upgrade in system stability as a whole.

So since you don’t have to worry about your new hardware crashing, how about you celebrate by downloading some games for it? Nintendo’s also added a new title to the 3DS eShop, as well as a few by means of DSiWare.

If you want to get your retro on, you can now buy the Game Boy edition of Donkey Kong for a measly $3.99.

Also available via DSiWare are Gold Fever(500 Points, $4.99), Zimo: Mahjong Fanatic(200 Points, $199), Beach Party Craze(800 Points, $7.99), and Hidden Photo(500 Points, $4.99).

Not wanting to leave the Wii out of the party, the big N’s added one new title each for Virtual Console, WiiWare, and WiiWare Demos.

On the Virtual Console stage is Mega Man 5(500 Points), which I really hope will be seeing a 3DS port as well(Sooner than later please!).

With WiiWare, there’s Snail Mail(600 Points) and a demo for BIT.TRIP FLUX(Demo: Free, Full Version: 800 Points).

So there’s this week’s store updates, go play already!

MDK2 and Mighty Milky Way Hit NA WiiWare and DSiWare

DSiWare and WiiWare had some pretty big releases this week. Mighty Milky Way, from the developers behind Shantae series and Mightly Flip Champs, hit DSiWare today for 800 points. You play as the green-skinned Luma who has the ability to blow up and create plants at whim thanks to her magical staff. On WiiWare the Dreamcast classic MDK 2, one of Bioware’s early titles, for 1,000 points. It’s a third person shooter following three different characters fighting against alien race known as Shwang Shwings.

Europeans get a tiny update this week with only a few releases across Nintendo’s online services. First up there’s a demo for the WiiWare title Soccer Bashi. If you want a actual full game on your Wii this week though, you’ll have to turn to the Virtual Console which is now offering the Super Nintedo title Brawl Brothers (800 points).  And last, but not least, you can get GO Series: Captain Sub (200 points) on DSiWare.


Haven’t seen an update this small since before DSiWare existed so it was only WiiWare and Virtual Console titles.
