Nintendo Download: Dr. Luigi, Super Punch-Out!!, Pokemon Bank, more


UPDATE: Nintendo has delayed the release of Pokemon Bank due to the eShop’s continued connectivity problems.

ORIGINAL STORY: Nintendo’s online marketplace is currently experiencing technical difficulties due to all of the people who found Wii Us and 3DSs under the tree yesterday. But that hasn’t stopped The Big N from updating their eShops.

Tuesday, December 31 will close out the “Year of Luigi” in style as Nintendo plans to add Dr. Luigi to the Wii U eShop before the calendar turns. But if you’re looking for something to download today, might I suggest two Virtual Console release: Super Punch-Out!! (Wii U) and Mario Tennis (3DS).

And if you’re a big Pokemon player, you might want to keep an eye out for Pokemon Bank, which will be added to the 3DS eShop tomorrow, December 27. The app allows Pokemon X/Y players to store/manage their captured Pokemon online. A $4.99 annual subscription cost will accompany the Bank, but Nintendo is offering a free trial until January 31.

You can find more details on all of these games and the rest of today’s eShop offerings after the break. (more…)

I got a fever and the prescription is Dr. Luigi on Wii U eShop

The Year of Luigi is going to end in a big way as Nintendo has announced that Dr. Luigi will be added to the Wii U eShop on December 31.

Dr. Luigi changes up the traditional Dr. Mario formula with “Operation L,” a new game mode that uses L-shaped pills. But don’t worry, a standard Dr. Mario mode (which still stars Luigi) will also be included. Online and local multiplayer will also be featured in Dr. Luigi as well as a stylus-controlled “Virus Buster” mode.

Dr. Luigi will be priced at $14.99.
