There’s a modest amount of new content in this week’s Nintendo Download. For the Wii U, The Legend of Zelda for the NES arrives for $4.99 on the Virtual Console while Pokemon Rumble U arrives on the eShop this week for $17.99. Look forward to our review of the game soon. In addition, the digital version of Rayman Legends ($59.99) will be available for download on September 3rd, the same day it releases next week.
Meanwhile, the 3DS only gets one new addition to its eShop. Wario Land 3 will be available for its Virtual Console for $4.99. Also, there’s a discount for the Bit.TRIP Saga for 3DS running from now until September 15th. The game will be reduced to $5, which should be more than reasonable for those of you who haven’t experienced the Bit.TRIP games yet.
