Nintendo eShop Digital Download Thursdays

There’s a smattering of releases across the 3DS and Wii U this week. The two that stand out for the Virtual Console services are Mega Man X and Wave Race 64. Both are excellent games, with Wave Race 64 being one of the prettiest games of the N64 generation. Sure, it doesn’t hold up to today’s graphics, but back then it was something to behold. The wave physics are still impressive and the dynamically changing courses are as fun as ever. You can play it on the Wii U’s GamePad or on the TV.

Many fans consider Mega Man X to be one of the best in the series. It changed up the traditional Mega Man formula with a new main character that has more tricks up his sleeve, like dashing and wall jumping. Available on the New Nintendo 3DS, you can enjoy the game’s impressive graphics in perfect pixel mode.

 

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

  • Nintendo eShop on Wii U
    • Tadpole Treble – Get ready for a creative adventure as you swim through sheet music and avoid the notes of the game’s catchy soundtrack. Along the way, you’ll encounter massive bosses, fully sung songs and plenty of unlockables, as well as an intuitive full stage/song creation mode using the Wii U GamePad controller.
  • Virtual Console on Wii U
    • Wave Race 64 – Choose one of four characters, each with his or her own unique abilities and style, and master the game’s excellent controls. Make your way through nine courses, each with its own challenges. Take a break from racing to try the Stunt Mode. Polish your skills pulling off handstands, rolls and flips.
  • Nintendo eShop on Nintendo 3DS
    • Disney Art Academy – Demo Version – In the full version of the game, players can discover their inner artists to capture the stunning visuals of over 80 Disney and Pixar characters. With advice and lessons inspired by Disney art and Pixar animations, they learn to use a bundle of different drawing tools to create Elsa and Olaf from Disney Frozen, characters from Disney Inside Out, or characters like Mickey Mouse. They can even share their creations with their friends. The demo version gives players access to two lessons to try out: Mickey Mouse and Olaf from Disney Frozen. Game and demo in 2D

    • Mega Man X – Hundreds of years after his death, Dr. Light’s final creation is discovered.

  • Wii Retail Download
    • Mario Sports Mix – The game presents four familiar sports – hockey, basketball, volleyball, dodgeball – but with a Mario twist. Players can choose from a variety of playable Mushroom Kingdom characters or play as their own Mii characters. In any sport, power-ups can turn the tide of a game in an instant. And in over-the-top Mario sports fashion, each character can unleash a special move.
