Nintendo Download: Wii Fit U, Lego Marvel Super Heroes, Castlevania IV, more


All you health fanatics, get ready, Nintendo will add Wii Fit U to the Wii U eShop tomorrow. The company is billing the title as a “Trial Version” because the free download will expire on December 1. If you want to continue your fitness goals with your Wii U, you’ll have to purchase a Wii Fit U Fit Meter, which will be available in stores (for $19.99) starting tomorrow.

If you’d prefer to spend your Wii U time in a sitting position, Nintendo has added plenty of other games to the eShop as part of this week’s Nintendo Download. Beginning today, the digital version of Lego Marvel Super Heroes can be purchased for the 3DS and the Wii U. The Virtual Console is also alive and well this Halloween with the scary Super Castlevania IV (Wii U) and the spooky Milon’s Secret Castle (3DS).

Beginning next Tuesday, November 5, Nintendo will add the family friendly Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures (3DS), Ben 10 Omniverse 2 (3DS, Wii U), and Power Rangers Megaforce (3DS) to their online store.

More details on all of these games (and a few others) can be found after the break. (more…)

Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures chomps on Wii U, PS3, Xbox 360, PC, 3DS this Fall

Pac-Man will star in a brand new animated series, Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures, this Summer on Disney XD. But everyone’s favorite little yellow circle will also be spending 2013 starring in his first third-person platforming game since 2005’s Pac-Man World 3. The game, which is also titled Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures, will be available for the Wii U, PS3, Xbox 360, and PC this Fall. A side-scrolling version of the game is in development for the 3DS.

The game revolves around the vibrant universe of Pac-World, where Pac-Worlders lived in peace until the mischievous Netherworld ghosts, led by their wicked leader Betrayus, escaped from their ghoulish domain to forcibly take control of Pac-World. Pac-World’s only hope lies in the last surviving yellow Pac-Worlder, our hero with a voracious appetite.

Not only will Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures feature an entirely revamped Pac-Man universe, but it will also hearken back to Pac-Man’s origins with classic elements such as Ghost encounters. The Ghost-chomping mechanics return from the original Pac-Man but with exciting powered up variations in Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures, creating an innovative yet familiar gameplay experience.

Be sure to watch to the end of the trailer, which shows that maybe Pac-Man shouldn’t have a time limit for his ghost-eating Power Pellets.
