Super heroes, demons, iconic first-party characters, and a new rising Nintendo star can all be found in this week’s Nintendo Download. First and foremost to the oprainfall faithful, of course: Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Summoner: Soul Hackers is coming next week, on April 16th (yes, the same day as Pandora’s Tower—if nothing else, it’s a scary time for our wallets).
If niche gaming isn’t your thing, you might try Injustice: Gods Among Us, the super hero brawler from the creators of Mortal Combat available on Wii U. There’s also the matter of Dillon’s Rolling Western: The Last Ranger (if you haven’t gotten around to the first game, check out our review) available on the 3DS eShop, and Kirby’s Adventure headed to the Wii U Virtual Console on April 17th.
There’s a little something for everyone, yes? But we can’t forget Fire Emblem: Awakening fans eager for new DLC.
Fire Emblem Awakening DLC alert! The Rogues and Redeemers 3 map will be available for $3.00 on 4/11. Complete the map and get Ike as a playable character and also receive the Limit Breaker skill. Use this skill to up the maximum stats of your characters by 10. Don’t forget that you have the option of getting all three Rogue and Redeemers maps for $6.50.
“The Wellspring of Trust” Spotpass Map will also be available today.
