Fist of the North Star: Ken's Rage 2 Leads This Week's Nintendo DownloadsJohn Llewellyn Martin |
Prepare your memory blocks for an assault from this week's Nintendo Download highlights!
You paid for all of that memory, so you might as well use it, right? This week's download features furious fighters, deep dungeons, cranial concentration, and small-screen soccer. It also seems like the current download offerings are continuing the trend of being 3DS-centric. It's not that we mind, since our handhelds are getting some exercise, but we wouldn't object to seeing more love for the Wii U!
This week's games are:
- Fist of the North Star: Ken's Rage 2 (Wii U) - This crossover between the hit fighting manga/anime and the Warriors video game franchise gives us a whole lot of flashy beatdowns. You, too, can be a master martial artist and turn the hordes of enemies into an impressionist painting.
- Brain Age: Concentration Training (3DS) - Brain Age seems like it's been around forever, helping us improve how we think and now it wants to help sharpen our -- uh -- what's the word ... oh, concentration! This downloadable title wants to help improve your short-term memory and ability to concentrate with just five minutes of play a day! Grab the retail copy or download it when it's released on February 10th, 2013.
- Etrian Odyssey 4: Legends of the Titan - Demo Version (3DS) - The first-person dungeon crawler is back, making its debut on the 3DS. The game is said to pack, "an enhanced graphics engine boasting polygonal enemies and new 3D special effects." It should be even more exciting to traverse the deep dungeons now that creatures will be popping out at you. Also, there are skyships! What's cooler than skyships?!
- Pro Evolution Soccer 2013 3D (3DS) - Now the game has even tighter controls, so you can make your way across the field with relative ease! We really only have one thing to say about this game that should get soccer fans excited about it: Ronaldo gives it his seal of approval.
Other downloads that are vying for your love and memory blocks are Mega Man 2 (3DS), Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell 3D (3DS), Rayman 3D (3DS), and Ah! Heaven (3DS, DSi). All of these titles should keep your handheld system very happy and busy for a good while.
Let us know what you'll be making room on your SD cards for and tell us what you'd like to see as a download in the future!
