Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate will be available for the 3DS and Wii U on March 19, but you can download a demo from the Nintendo eShop beginning today! If monster-slaying isn’t your thing, two other demos, Trine 2: Director’s Cut on the Wii U eShop and Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed on the 3DS eShop, are now available.
Wii U gamers will also get a chance into the past this week with F-Zero. The Super NES classic has been priced at 30 cents for a limited time, so if Captain Falcon stirs fond memories in your Nintendo thumb, now’s the time to buy.
Finally this week, we have a quartet of 3DS game downloads…
- Picdun 2: Witch’s Curse is a dungeon-crawling RPG from developer Intense.
- Viking Invasion 2 is a tower defense game with vikings.
- Yoshi is the NES puzzle game, re-released for the 3DS’ Virtual Console.
- And Etrian Odyssey IV: Legends of the Titan is the latest RPG from Atlus. It’ll be available on Tuesday, February 26.
More information on all of these games can be found after the break.

F-Zero – Speed into the future with the first installment of the F-Zero series. Originally released on the Super NES, strategy will play a big part in this classic game as you choose between four proton-powered hover cars and race across 15 courses filled with challenges and pitfalls. Find shortcuts, elude hazards and snag power-ups if you want to beat the competition. F-Zero is the second game released on the Virtual Console for Wii U to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Famicom.
Yoshi – Yoshi is an action/puzzle game starring Mario’s dinosaur buddy Yoshi who has been imprisoned in an egg. Now it’s raining Goombas, Bloopers, and Boo Buddies, and you have to help Mario stop the airborne invasion.
Picdun 2: Witch’s Curse – Picdun 2: Witch’s Curse is a 3D dungeon RPG set in the mysterious dungeon called “Picdun.” Choose your partner from three female adventurers–the Archer, the Whipper and the Spellcaster–and venture into the depths of the dungeon together. Sixty stages await you, filled with a wide variety of puzzles ranging from easy to mind-bendingly difficult!
Viking Invasion 2 – After the success of the first game, follow the whacky new adventures of Olaf the Viking and his group in this cartoon-style fantasy Tower Defense. During their journey, these terrible bearded warriors with a debatable sense of humour will have to travel to places that are more offbeat than ever. Your mission: stop them from pillaging everything in their path!
Etrian Odyssey IV: Legends of the Titan – For centuries, the tree Yggdrasil has been a constant presence in the lives of the people of Tharsis. It looms on the horizon, visible from everywhere in the city. But its roots are in a far-off land where no one has ventured until the Outland Count of Tharsis sponsors an Explorers Guild to reach Yggdrasil and discover its secrets. You are the latest explorer arriving in Tharsis to seek your fame and fortune. Board your skyship and set out into the clouds in search of treasure, glory, and the answer to Tharsis’ oldest mystery.
