In this week’s European Nintendo Download, we get the long awaited release of Shin Megami Tensei IV. One of the top games from last year finally comes to European fans, though sadly as a digital only title. But better that than never, I guess.

Shin Megami Tensei IV 06

Just SMT IV would be a pretty good week for the Download. But Nintendo wasn’t satisfied with just that. The Wii U will be getting a number of new games this week, most notably Stealth Inc. 2: A Game of Clones.

Now that right there is a good week. You get quality games on both consoles. But they weren’t done yet. The Virtual Console on 3DS and Wii U will be adding multiple games this week. Wii U will get Devil World and Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong’s Double Trouble. Meanwhile, the 3DS adds Donkey Kong Land III and Gargoyle’s Quest II: The Demon Darkness.

Now, they could just end there and it would be an awesome week. Quality titles, the Donkey Kong Country series on Wii U, Donkey Kong Land on 3DS, and one of the top Capcom games from the NES.

But they weren’t done.

If you don’t have a Wii U and want Donkey Kong Country, fret not. After a two year hiatus, the games are returning to the Wii’s Virtual Console.

This, my friends, is a tremendously amazing week. You might be able to get it to another level of awesome, but that might be overkill.

The full list of releases is below. All releases and sales happen on October 30th unless noted otherwise. All descriptions come directly from the press release.

Death is never more than a few moments away, but one of the few advantages of being a clone is that death isn’t all that permanent.
