Happy Independence Day, everybody! The 3DS is getting a lot of love in this week’s Nintendo Download. On the Virtual Console front, SEGA is releasing another batch of Game Gear games, including Sonic Drift ($3.99), Vampire Master of Darkness ($4.99) and G-LOC Air Battle ($3.99). In addition, Mighty Switch Force! will have its price dropped to a measly $3.99 in a week-long discount to celebrate the release of Mighty Switch Force! 2, so if you haven’t bought this game already, go do it!
Although, if you’d rather play the Wii U version of Mighty Switch Force!, that version is also getting a discount for the same length of time. Mighty Switch Force! Hyper Drive Edition has been lowered to $6.67 until July 11th. In addition, Nintendo has released Pilotwings for the Wii U’s Virtual Console for $7.99. If you already bought the game on the Wii’s Virtual Console, you can get this version for only $1.50.
