retrocityrampge-header

Welcome to another edition of the Nintendo Download. This week, 3DS owners will be treated to Retro City Rampage: DX, an enhanced and updated version of the PC, PS3, Xbox 360, and Wii game that most of us refer to as “8-bit Grand Theft Auto.” Also available today are a pair of Wii U titles: Percy’s Predicament, a family-friendly platformer, and Ninja Gaiden, one of the greatest ninja games to ever grace the NES.

Tomorrow, Nintendo and Square Enix will add Bravely Default, an RPG in the style of classic Final Fantasy titles, to the 3DS eShop and WB Games will do the same for The Lego Movie, a Lego-style game based on the movie of the same name. The Lego Movie will also be available on the Wii U eShop.

Finally, One Piece: Romance Dawn, an RPG based on the popular anime, will be available through the 3DS eShop on Tuesday, February 11.

More details on all of these games can be found after the break.

Wii U eShop

Ninja Gaiden – Players take the role of Ryu Hayabusa and fight their way through 10 challenging side-scrolling levels while defeating gangs of street thugs, battling evil ninjas and fighting barbarian bosses. Using the deadly Dragon Sword, ninja skills and ninja magic, players make their way through each stage and collect items to gain points, strength and weapons.

Percy’s Predicament – Percy’s Predicament is a single player game in which you control Percy Penguin, who has become trapped within a magical orb. You must navigate the course and collect all the fish before the time runs out! Controlling Percy is incredibly simple as the interface relies solely on the GamePad’s control scheme.

The Lego Movie – Step into the blocky shoes of Emmet, an ordinary, rules-following, perfectly average citizen who is mistakenly identified as the key to saving the world. Players guide him as he is drafted into a fellowship of strangers on an epic quest to stop an evil tyrant, a journey for which Emmet is hopelessly and hilariously underprepared. (Available on February 7)
