Nintendo Download: Week of July 16th, 2015

Blaster MasterIt’s a day late, but still we’ll get you all the news about Nintendo Downloads we can. Another week with no high profile game releases on Nintendo platforms. Blaster Master hits the Virtual Console on Wii U. Ubisoft drops the price of games like Rayman Origins by 75%. I highly recommend checking out Child of Light. Etrian Odyssey 2 Untold gets a demo this week. If you’re interested in first person dungeon crawling give that a look.

Splatoon Splatfest happens this week. Starting today and running through tomorrow evening. Pick a team and battle it out in a turf war for the ages.

Head past the break for all the details on what you can pick up this week in the eShop on Wii U and 3DS.

Virtual Console on Wii U

    • Blaster Master – In this NES cult classic, main character Jason goes after his rogue pet frog, Fred, and both fall into a world of monsters. Jason must join forces with a combat tank code-named SOPHIA and find a way to survive, while ending the mutant forces set to destroy Earth!

Also new this week:

In addition to video games available at retail stores, Nintendo also offers a variety of content that people can download directly to their systems. Nintendo adds new games weekly to the Nintendo eShop on the Wii U console and the Nintendo 3DS family of systems, the Nintendo DSi Shop for the Nintendo DSi system and the Wii Shop Channel for the Wii console.

The Nintendo eShop is a cash-based service that features a wide variety of content, including new and classic games, applications and demos. Users can add money to their account balances by using a credit card or purchasing a Nintendo eShop Card at a retail store and entering the code from the card. All funds from one card must be loaded in the Nintendo eShop on either Wii U or the Nintendo 3DS family of systems, but can be used in either Nintendo eShop if the systems are linked to a single Nintendo Network account.

The Wii Shop Channel offers games and applications and uses Wii Points, which can be purchased via the Wii Shop Channel. The Nintendo DSi Shop offers games and applications and uses Nintendo DSi Points, which can be purchased in the Nintendo DSi Shop.

Remember that Wii U, Wii, Nintendo 3DS, Nintendo 3DS XL, Nintendo 2DS and Nintendo DSi feature parental controls that let adults manage some of the content their children can access.
