Nine new games have been added to Nintendo’s three download services today, though your definition of the word “new” may be different from theirs.
The Wii U leads the way as the arcade brawler Dungeons & Dragons: Chronicles of Mystara and the side-scrolling Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams are both now available to download from the Wii U eShop. A favorite among Super NES RPG afficiandos, Breath of Fire II, and yet another “find the object” game, Spot The Differences! Party, were also released today.
Over on the 3DS, Sonic Generations speeds onto the 3DS eShop today. Sega’s red-shoed mascot is joined by Summer Carnival ’92 RECCA, a tough-as-nails overhead shooter; Boulder Dash-XL 3D, a side-scrolling mining game; and Darts Up 3D, a… wait for it… darts game.
Finally, the DSiWare Shop hosts a new game this week: Jewel Adventures. It’s your typical match-3 puzzler.
More information on all of these games can be found after the break.
