Retro gaming fans will find a lot to like in this week’s Nintendo Download. Two more Game Boy Advance titles (the RPG Golden Sun and the futuristic racer F-Zero: Maximum Velocity) have made their way onto the Wii U eShop. They’re joined by one of the greatest games of all time, Super Mario Bros. 3. Mario’s third adventure will be available as separate downloads through both the Wii U eShop and the 3DS eShop.

Also available this week is the Wii U edition of Lego The Hobbit. The tie-in game will be available for Nintendo’s home console on Tuesday, April 22, just a few weeks after the Blu-ray/DVD release of the second movie, The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug.

Finally this week, a quartet of additional titles were added to Nintendo’s Wii U and 3DS eShops. You can find more information on all of this week’s new game downloads after the break. Also, FYI, one of the Wii U’s best launch titles, ZombiU, has received a permanent price cut this week. The game, which was previously priced at $59.99, can now be had for $29.99.
