Not quite as big of week as last week when it comes to digital downloads on Nintendo systems. However, the big guns are out with Star Fox Zero hitting Wii U digitally tonight at midnight eastern time. For the rest of the content, read the official press release below:

 

This week’s Nintendo Download includes the following featured content:

  • Nintendo eShop on Wii U
    • Star Fox Zero – An evil empire has risen and the Lylat system is in danger. As legendary space pilot Fox McCloud, blast through an onslaught of enemy forces to bring peace to the galaxy. In this white-knuckle space shooter, it’ll take more than luck to master the Arwing jet, the Gyrowing flight drone and the Landmaster tank. You have what it takes. Now prove it. Star Fox Zero will be available on April 22. (Star Fox Zero and Star Fox Guard can only be purchased separately in Nintendo eShop. By purchasing one game, you’ll receive an automatic discount upon the purchase of the other game, bringing the total cost for both digital games to $59.99.)
    • Star Fox Guard – Grippy Toad, the founder of Corneria Precious Metals Ltd., and Slippy Toad of the legendary team Star Fox need your help protecting their booming business. All you have to do is keep an eye on a dozen video screens as you mow down waves of attacking robots with your turret-mounted cameras. Star Fox Guard will be available on April 22. (Star Fox Zero and Star Fox Guard can only be purchased separately in Nintendo eShop. By purchasing one game, you’ll receive an automatic discount upon the purchase of the other game, bringing the total cost for both digital games to $59.99.)
  • Nintendo eShop on Nintendo 3DS
    • Pocket Card Jockey – Demo Version – 3, 2, 1 … GO! Stack cards like it’s a race to the finish! In this fast-paced mashup of solitaire and horse racing, you’ll jockey your way to victory by clearing cards to energize your horse. You can even level up your noble steed through strategic positioning on the track. Can you master solitaire and horseback racing at the same time? Try out the demo version of the Pocket Card Jockey game before the full version of the game releases this May.
  • Virtual Console on Wii U
    • Mario Party DS – Bring the Nintendo DS party game to the Wii U console! Bowser has shrunk Mario and his friends, and now they’re ready to foil his latest scheme. Play as one of eight characters in four game modes, on five themed game boards and in more than 70 mini-games. Take turns moving around the board to reach first place, or get immersed in constant mini-game action.
