Nintendo Download: Week of January 5th

The first week of the year offers up some slim pickings on the eShop. Pokemon Snap for the N64 is available on the Wii U Virtual Console and that’s really the biggest release of the week. Only a handful of indie games to check out. My Nintendo has some deals on a few Kirby games so if you’re interested in picking up something like Kirby’s Epic Yarn for Wii U or Yoshi’s Woolly World a little cheaper you might spend some of those platinum and gold coins to do that.

As always head past the break for the full list of games and deals available.

Nintendo Download – Week of December 8th

Animal Crossing  New Leaf (14)

What’s on tap for the eShop this week, you ask? Lucky for you I have just the answer. This week’s biggest “new” release is Animal Crossing: New Leaf – Welcome amiibo on the 3DS. This newest update adds a ton of new content to the game for returning players and an even bigger experience than before for players who are new to the game.

Aside from that it’s a big week for the Virtual Console, at least I think so. Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon, a DS release, is available on the Wii U Virtual Console as is one of Samus’ most recent outings in Metroid Other M, which I very much enjoyed.

Head past the break for all of the most recent releases on the 3DS and Wii U.
