Ron Gilbert’s The Cave is the headlining title in this week’s Nintendo Download and it marks the first time that a downloadable game was released for the PS3, Xbox 360, and Wii U in the same week. The Wii U eShop is also now home to the digital release of Funky Barn and the first Wii U Virtual Console Trial Campagin title, Balloon Fight (which has been priced at 30 cents).
On the 3DS eShop, gamers will be treated to the classic NES shooter, Super C; the strategic warfare of Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Shadow Wars; and the self-explanatory Cocoto Alien Brick Breaker.
Hit the jump for more information on all of these games.

The Cave – Assemble your team of three from seven unlikely adventurers, each with their own unique personalities and stories, then descend into the mysterious depths to explore locations including a subterranean amusement park and a medieval castle, not to mention a fully armed and ready-to-launch nuclear tipped ICBM. The Cave awaits.
Funky Barn – It’s Farming! but not as you know it…
Super C – In this action-packed sequel to the popular Contra, players have little time to think. Experience run-and-gun gameplay at its best as you take control of Mad Dog or Scorpion and once again battle the forces of Red Falcon.
Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Shadow Wars – As the commander of the Ghosts, your mission is to stop the Russian ultranationalist Yuri Treskayev from coming to power. From the hot deserts of Kazakhstan to the towns and villages of Ukraine and the frozen lands of Siberia, you must discover and disable the secret Soviet-era “Dead Hand” bases which Treskayev is using to build an army of drones to seize power. You will have access to full resources to build, train, and equip your team, using increasingly high -tech weapons and armor.
Cocoto Alien Brick Breaker – The devilish Cocoto is back in an incredibly addictive game, brilliantly renewing the great brick breaker classic!
