This week’s Nintendo Download is all about battling aliens in a giant mech suit, battling TV monsters with a shape-shifting wand, and going on a grand old fantasy adventure.
Kirby: Planet Robobot will be available to download for the 3DS tomorrow, and it takes Kirby to some strange new places. If you can believe it, Nintendo’s pink puffball is going up against an alien invasion. But don’t worry, he’s stolen a mech suit and is ready to punch those aliens in the face with a pneumatically-powered fist!
Jumping over to the Wii U eShop, we can catch up with one of Wario’s older adventures this week through the Virtual Console. Wario: Master of Disguise was originally released for the DS in 2007, and it’s a side-scrolling platformer where Mario’s on-again/off-again nemesis steals a shape-shifting wand and uses it to battle monsters in his TV. That Wario, he gets around.
Finally this week, the fantasy adventure The Book of Unwritten Tales 2 is now available to download for the Wii U. Filled with the franchise’s “trademark humor that lovingly spoofs your favorite fantasy worlds,” The Book of Unwritten Tales 2 should certainly please adventure game fans.
More information on all of these games (and a few other new releases) can be found after the break.
