This week’s Nintendo Download for Europe includes the following content. Game descriptions are copied directly from the press release:
Nintendo eShop on Wii U
Unepic – “Unepic is a mixture of a platformer, role-playing game and joke that takes place in a huge castle of medieval fantasy. The hero is called Daniel, a normal guy from the modern day: a great video game player, big lover of sci-fi movies and novice player of role-playing games. In the middle of a role-playing game with his friends, Daniel is teleported to a castle and thinks that he is having a massive hallucination. He decides to embark on his own adventure until the hallucination ends. In the castle, Daniel is possessed by a shadow; it cannot control him, but it can speak to him. The shadow can only escape if the hero dies, so it constantly lies, giving false clues to point Daniel towards his death.” This game will cost €9.99 (£8.99).
Virtual Console on Wii U
Super Mario Bros.™: The Lost Levels – “The Lost Levels is a true video game treasure. Released only in Japan, this sequel to the smash hit platformer was never brought to the west in its original NES version. Now you can experience this rare classic in all its 8-bit glory on your Wii U! The Lost Levels expands on Super Mario Bros. with tough new level designs, trickier enemies, and new features like fierce winds that blow Mario away. It’s the ultimate challenge for any Mario fan. Are you up to the task?” This game will cost €4.99 (£3.49).
Nintendo eShop on 3DS
Bella Sara 2 – The Magic of Drasilmare – “Return to the universe of Bella Sara and set off to the Drasilmare Tree’s rescue! The great Magic Tree of Drasilmare has been cursed! Only you can remove the deadly curse and save the world of Bella Sara.” This game will cost €34.99 (£29.99).
Virtual Console on 3DS
Ninja Gaiden III: The Ancient Ship of Doom – “The original NES™ adventures of Ryu Hayabusa conclude with Ninja Gaiden III: The Ancient Ship of Doom. Falsely accused of murder, Ryu must battle through seven action-packed stages to clear his name.
Armed with his trusty sword and ninja power, Ryu can now grab platforms and pipes to perform swift attacks on enemies from above or below. You’ll need all of Ryu’s skills at your disposal to defeat the forces of evil and uncover the true culprit.” This game will cost €3.99 (£3.59).
