Nintendo Download: PokePark Wii, Contra III: The Alien Wars, PixelJunk Monsters, more

We’re taking a trip back in time for this week’s Nintendo Download…

PokePark Wii: Pikachu’s Adventure was originally released for the Wii in 2010, and its now available to download through the Wii U eShop. An action-adventure game, players will guide Pikachu through a Pokemon-themed amusement park in a quest to reassemble the Sky Prism.

Going back even further, PixelJunk Monsters is a tower defense title from Q-Games that was originally released for the PS3 in 2008. It’s now available to download for the Wii U, and Q-Games is calling it, “The Definitive Monsters Experience.”

Finally this week, Konami and Nintendo reached way back to bring Contra III: The Alien Wars to the 3DS eShop. Available only for the New 3DS, Nintendo fans will get another chance to re-buy one of the greatest side-scrolling shooters of all time, which was originally released for the Super NES in 1992.

More information on all of these games (and a few other new releases) can be found after the break.
