Nintendo Download

Not a terribly large amount of interesting stuff in the Nintendo Download this week. On the 3DS, the digital version of Zero Escape: Virtue’s Last Reward is now available on the eShop for $24.99—a whole $15 less than a new copy of the game on Amazon—as well as Ninja Gaiden II: The Dark Sword of Chaos for the NES ($4.99) on the Virtual Console. In addition, Ubisoft is running a promotion for select Ubisoft titles on the eShop, including Rayman Origins and Ghost Recon Shadow Wars, with a 30% discount. This promotion lasts until August 27th.

Meanwhile, the Wii U gets not one, not two, but three Street Fighter games for the Virtual Console. Street Fighter II: The World Warrior, Street Fighter II Turbo: Hyper Fighting and Super Street Fighter II: Hyper Challengers will all be available on the Virtual Console for $7.99 each. Not only that, but Capcom will be running a special week-long promotion for these three SNES games. If you buy one, you can buy the other two games for half off. This means that, if you’re a die-hard Street Fighter fan and want all three of these SNES games, you can get them for the price of two. The promotion will run until August 29th.
