Nintendo Download

This week’s Nintendo Download seems to be rather sparse in terms of content. The main game to be released this week is Game Freak’s HarmoKnight, one of the first of, hopefully, many games to be made under their new development policy. It’s available today for $14.99. The other new games to be released on the eShop are Legend of the River King for the Game Boy Color ($4.99) and the digital versions of Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed ($29.99) and Resident Evil: Revelations ($29.99).

The other main addition to the eShop is the new Save Data Transfer Tool that works with the recent 3DS firmware update. If you have both the retail version and the digital version of a 3DS title, you can use this tool to transfer your save data from the retail version to the digital version. It’s free to download, too.

Finally, new Fire Emblem: Awakening DLC has been released this week. The first chapter of the Rogues and Redeemers map pack is available today for $3.00, where as the entire pack is available for $6.50. Completing this first map will allow you to recruit Ephraim from Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones as a playable character.
