With all the craziness that’s been going on this week, it’s easy to forget about the Nintendo Download. Thankfully, Nintendo hasn’t forgotten about it, because there’s some good content available this week. The 3DS gains two new eShop titles in the forms of PICROSS e and the long-awaited Mighty Switch Force! 2, each of which are $5.99. Also, the Virtual Console for the 3DS gets a shot in the arm from a few Game Gear titles, including Columns ($3.99), Dr. Robotnik’s Mean Bean Machine ($2.99), Shining Force: Sword of Hajya ($3.99), and Sonic the Hedgehog ($4.99).

Meanwhile, the Wii U is only getting one new game this week. But don’t worry, because it’s a good one this week. Mutant Mudds Deluxe is finally available on the Wii U eShop for $9.99! This version of the game includes the special ghost levels, which you can’t get anywhere else. That makes it the definitive version of Mutant Mudds.

    Awesome write-up Kyle. There’s only 3 games on my mind today: Mighty Switch Force! 2, Mighty Switch Force! 2, and Mighty Switch Force! 2.

    Grabbing Shining Force. Was hoping it would be up this morning but wasn’t before I left for work.

    The Sonic game is the GG version it looks like. Is this one different from the Genesis game, or just a port?

    • Ben Baker

      It’s quite a bit different from the Genesis version, from what I remember from when I played it on Sonic Adventure DX. It definitely wasn’t as good as Sonic Chaos or Sonic Triple Trouble, but it was still a pretty fun game from, at least as a kid.

    • RagunaXL

      it’s very different. Many of the levels resemble the genesis game but they are different layouts, with different control physics, and different music. Sonic 1 and 2 are very fun but very hard games.
