Nintendo Download Nintendo Download

There’s certainly a good amount of content in this week’s Nintendo Download. We’ve got not one, but two retail games being released on the eShop on the same day. Both Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon and Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity will be available for purchase for $39.99 and $34.99 respectively on March 24th. Not only that, but Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity will be getting its first batch of DLC on the day of its release. From March 24th to April 30th, the Poke Forest DLC will be free. After that, it will cost $2.

Speaking of DLC, the next batch of Fire Emblem: Awakening DLC will be available today. Smash Brethren 2 will pit you against Roy’s army this time. Completing this map will allow you to recruit Erikia from Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones. In addition, you’ll be rewarded with the Wedding Bouquet. This item will promote any of your female characters to the Bride class, allowing them to use lances, bows and staves as well as giving them a high luck stat. This map will be available for $3 on its own. You can still get it as part of the Smash Pack along with the other Smash Brethren maps for $6.50.

In addition, there are some sales running on the 3DS eShop right now. Both Pokedex 3D Pro and Mutant Mudds have been discounted this week. Pokedex 3D Pro will be available for $9.99 starting on March 22nd, while Mutant Mudds will be available for a cool $5.99. If you haven’t picked up Mutant Mudds yet, now is a good time to do so.

Finally, the Wii U hasn’t been completely left out. Zen Pinball 2 is now available on the North American Wii U eShop, with each table costing $3 individually or $10 for a pack of four. In addition, the Wii’s Virtual Console gets a new addition for the Neo Geo in the form of The Path of the Warrior Art of Fighting for 900 points.
