Chibi-Robo

There’s not a whole lot of new stuff in this week’s Nintendo Download. The 3DS gets Chibi-Robo!: Photo Finder on the eShop for $9.99 and the Wii U gets Gradius for the NES for $4.99 on its Virtual Console. In addition, three Atlus games for the 3DS will also be on sale. Code of Princess, Etrian Odyssey IV: Legend of the Titan and Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Summoner: Soul Hackers will all have their prices slashed by 30% from January 13th to the 20th. If you haven’t purchased either of those games before, now’s a good time to do so.

In addition to video games available at retail stores, Nintendo also offers a variety of content that people can download directly to their systems. Nintendo adds new titles weekly to the Nintendo eShop for the Wii U system as well as the Nintendo 3DS and Nintendo 3DS XL systems, to the Nintendo DSi™ Shop for the Nintendo DSi system and to the Wii™ Shop Channel for the Wii console.

The Nintendo eShop is a cash-based service that features games, applications and videos. Users can add money to their account balances by using a credit card or by purchasing a Nintendo Prepaid Card at a retail store and entering the code from the card. All funds from one card must be loaded in the Nintendo eShop on either Wii U or Nintendo 3DS, but can be used in either Nintendo eShop if the systems are linked to a single Nintendo Network account.

The Wii Shop Channel offers games and applications and uses Wii Points™, which can be purchased via the Wii Shop Channel. The Nintendo DSi Shop offers games and applications and uses Nintendo DSi Points™, which can be purchased in the Nintendo DSi Shop. A Wii Points Card™ and Nintendo DSi Points Card™ can be purchased at retail locations. All points from one card must be redeemed in either the Wii Shop Channel or the Nintendo DSi Shop, respectively. They are not transferable and cannot be divided between the two systems.

Remember that Wii U, Wii, Nintendo 3DS, Nintendo 3DS XL and Nintendo DSi feature parental controls that let adults manage some of the content their children can access.

  • Mr. Saturn

    Is Chibi Robo out this minute? I just checked the eShop.. still no Chibi Robo…

    • The eShop updates with each week’s Nintendo Download at 12 PM EST, 9 AM PST. It will be up by now.

  • Wildcardcorsair

    I’m down for some Chibi Robo but I’m not going to sit here and pretend Pokemon Bank shouldn’t be up by now. ::sadface::

  • I’m calling it here, just so I can have it in writing:
    Next week’s Nintendo Download (1/16): All we’ll get is Unepic and Super Mario Bros. Week after that (1/30), we may [finally] get Super Mario Bros 3 or A Link to the Past. If we don’t see them the week of 1/30, we aren’t going to see them until after Bravely Default.

    Furthermore, I’m not expecting even the slightest hint of Pokemon Bank ’til after Bravely Default. 2/13 is when we can realistically expect half the stuff we’ve been waiting for since last year. And I think that’s kinda sad.

    Chibi Robo for me. But, I’m gonna try out the demo first.
