Project X Zone Featured - Nintendo Download

There’s a good amount of content coming your way in this week’s Nintendo Download. First off, the second game in the Guild02 collection that was made by Mega Man creator Keiji Inafune, BUGS vs. TANKS! ($7.99) is available for download. Also, the 3DS Virtual Console gets a shot in the arm thanks to some Game Gear games courtesy of SEGA, including Defenders of Oasis ($3.99), Sonic Blast ($3.99) and Tails Adventure ($4.99), as well as Mega Man 6 for the NES ($4.99). Finally, Project X Zone will be available on the eShop as a retail download for $34.99, a full $5 less than at retail! You can still pre-order the Limited Edition of the game here if you want, which includes the artbook, soundtrack and mini poster. But if you just want to get the game, you can purchase it from the eShop on June 25th.

Meanwhile, the Wii U gets a couple new NES games for its Virtual Console in the forms of Mario Bros. and Wrecking Crew, both at $4.99 a piece. Wario also makes his debut on the platform in Game & Wario ($39.99), which will be available on the eShop on June 23rd. In addition, Little Inferno has been reduced to $4.99 until June 26th, which is a whopping $10 off its $14.99 price tag, so you have no excuse to skip this game!

Super Luigi U

 Finally, New Super Luigi U will finally be available today on the eShop for $19.99. Look forward to Jonathan Higgins’ review of the game soon. In the meantime, you can check out his review of New Super Mario Bros. U here.

Nintendo actually hasn’t posted the official Press Release yet, but when they do, we’ll throw it up. You can normally find it here.

    I see someone has read one too many bad translations of Japanese news posts. Regardless, the 25th cannot possibly come soon enough.

    Sounds cool. Glad to see Project X Zone finally coming over to the states. I really need to get that and start downloading more stuff for my 3DS. I haven’t used it much at all…

  • James Best

    I’ll probably be trying out New Super Luigi U.

    Not going to get Project X Zone, but I really like that it is cheaper digital than physical. That should be how it works for all games that are available in both formats.

  • PKUltima

    I’m definitely going with Project X Zone! Although I buy physical copies whenever I can it’s nice to see digital only people get some more benefits.
