Castlevania: Lords of Shadow - Mirror of Fate Demo Leads This Week's Nintendo DownloadsJohn Llewellyn Martin |
This week's Nintendo downloads are far from beefy when it comes to selection, but at least there are some gems that are sure to catch gamers' eyes.
You're probably running out of space thanks to the last few weeks of downloads, especially since Fire Emblem Awakening doesn't seem to stop pumping out new downloadable content (not that anyone's complaining), but here are this week's choices when it comes to filling up your memory blocks.
- Castelvania: Lords of Shadow - Mirror of Fate - Demo Version (Nintendo eShop on Nintendo 3DS) - The game takes place a quarter of a century after Gabriel's adventures in the original Lords of Shadow and stars his descendants. Try out the demo to see how the side-scrolling action of the classic games in the series works with the new 3D aesthetic of Lords of Shadow.
- BIT.TRIP Presents... Runner2: Future Legend of Rhythm Alien (Nintendo eShop on Wii U) - It's rhythm-based infinite runner with eight different characters complete with alternate costumes and five worlds to explore. You can download either the demo or full versions now!
- Fractured Soul (Nintendo eShop on NIntendo 3DS) - It's a side-scrolling game that you can play on the handheld console's dual screens! While it's not a new title, it is on sale for a limited time. You can pick it up now for $7.99
- Fire Emblem Awakening DLC (Nintendo eShop on 3DS) - Here's a public service announcement reminding players that they only have until March 6th, 2013 to claim the Champions of Yore 1 map for free. The EXPonential Growth map, the second map in the Golden Pack, is also now available for $2.50. If you've already paid for the Pack, you just have to download it and kill enemies for massive experience gains.
That's it for this week's heavy hitters, but we'd be doing you a disservice if we didn't mention that Mahjong Mysteries - Ancient Athena (3DS), Coaster Creator 3D (3DS), Easter Eggztravaganza (3DS, DSi), and Retro City Rampage (Wii) were all available in the eShop and Wii Shop Channel as well.
