[UPDATE: New DLC for Fire Emblem: Awakening DLC is available today. The Summer Scramble map, which features a few Fire Emblem: Awakening characters in a bikini (namely Tharja) is available for $3. You can also get it as part of the Scramble Pack for $6.50.]
There’s not a whole lot going on in this week’s Nintendo Download. Today, the Wii U gets two more Virtual Console titles in the form of Pac Man for the NES ($4.99) and Mega Man for the NES ($4.99). In addition, we’re also getting Tank! Tank! Tank! and Kung Fu Rabbit ($TBD). Meanwhile, the 3DS gets Balloon Fight for the NES ($4.99) on its Virtual Console, BearShark ($3.99), Gummy Bears Magical Medalion ($5.99), My Riding Stables – Jumping for the Team ($29.99) for the eShop and Armageddon Operation Dragon ($4.99/500 Points) for DSiWare.
While there isn’t much in the way of new games, the eShops are getting a number of discounts until May 9th. Nintendo is slashing its prices on games like 3D Classics: Kirby’s Adventure to $4.99, Dillon’s Rolling Western to $6.99, Pushmo to $4.99, Fluidity: Spin Cycle to $7.99, and Tokyo Crash Mobs to $4.99. Shin’en is also slashing its prices by 30% on its titles for both the Wii U and the 3DS eShops, including Art of Balance TOUCH!, Fun! Fun! Minigolf TOUCH!, Nano Assault Neo and Nano Assault EX. Meanwhile, Zen Pinbal is having a sale on several of its pinball tables. To celebrate the upcoming Iron Man 3, all Marvel-themed pinball tables will be available for 50% off in Zen Pinball 2 as well as Marvel Pinball 3D. This offer lasts until 9 AM PST May 9th.
Finally, Code of Princess will get a price reduction to $29.99 on the eShop. It’s currently unclear if this is another sale or if this will be a permanent price drop on the eShop. Either way, now would be a good time to pick this game up if you’ve ever been interested.
