Nintendo Download: Rhythm Heaven Megamix, Terraria, Super Paper Mario, more

Even though it was E3 week, Nintendo has loaded this week’s Nintendo eShop update with a great new (and classic) games.

Leading things off is Rhythm Heaven Megamix, which received a surprise launch for the 3DS earlier this week. Rhythm Heaven Megamix collects more than 70 challenges from the series and asks players to match the absolutely bizarre beat of goats eating turnips, viruses speeding around a body, a hungry bear, and more.

Also this week, a Super NES classic is now available to download for Nintendo’s handheld. Mega Man 7 isn’t as well-known as the NES sextet that preceded it, but fans have started to come around on the original Blue Bomber’s only 16-bit adventure.

Over on the Wii U, players are able to download Terraria today, which is two weeks earlier than expected. The side-scrolling exploration game has added a touchscreen interface for its Wii U debut, along with online and splitscreen multiplayer. Finally, Nintendo added the Wii-era adventure Super Paper Mario to the Wii U eShop.

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

Nintendo adds Punch-Out!!, Mario Galaxy, more to Wii budget line

Beginning August 28, Nintendo will expand their “Nintendo Selects” line on the Wii with four new games. Three games starring Mario and one featuring a pint-sized pugilist will be re-released for the budget-friendly price of $19.99. The newly discounted games are the criminally underrated Punch-Out!!, Super Mario Galaxy, Mario Strikers Charged and Super Paper Mario.

They join a Nintendo Selects line that was previously established with the inclusion of The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, Animal Crossing: City Folk, Mario Super Sluggers and Wii Sports.
