We’re just one day away from two critically acclaimed, highly anticipated games arriving on Wii U and 3DS in North America. Oh yeah, and there’s Mario Party: Island Tour. My tasteless joke aside, this week’s Nintendo Download reminds us of greatness on the horizon. The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds, Super Mario 3D World and Mario Party: Island Tour are all arriving at retail and on the Nintendo eShop for their respective systems on November 22nd…you know, tomorrow. Also: The Wii U Virtual Console offers up Brawl Brothers while we all wait for Super Mario Bros. 3 to arrive eventually.
One last thing worth noting: Nintendo’s been doing this sort of “Character Sale” where they pick a Nintendo hero and offer his or her games at sale price. Last week was Zelda focused and, among other things, offered Link’s Awakening DX at a discount. Did you take advantage? Determined to keep up consistent quality, this week offers select Mega Man games at a reduced price. Check out the full Press Release below for more information and to take a look at all the games coming in the next week!
