Nintendo Download: Wii Party U, Scram Kitty, Moon Chronicles, more


This week’s Nintendo Download wants you to Scram! No! Wait! Come back! I’m just talking about Scram Kitty and His Buddy On Rails, an overhead shooter from Dakko Dakko, that is now available to download through the Wii U eShop.

It’s joined this week by a trio of puzzle games as Wii Party U (a minigame collection that was originally released for the Wii U last year), Color Zen (a shape-based puzzler), and Adventures of Lolo (a great “move the blocks” puzzler from the NES era) are now also available from Nintendo’s digital storefront.

3DS owners will be able to download four new games today. The four games include Renegade Kid’s Moon Chronicles, a first person shooter that is a remake of the cult favorite DS game Moon; Mega Man IV, a Virtual Console re-release of the Game Boy platformer; Arc Style: Baseball 3D, a simplistic baseball game from Arc System Works; and Candy Match 3, a match-3 puzzler (just how many of these does the 3DS have?).

More information on all of these titles (as well as Deep Sea Creatures on the DSiWare Shop) can be found after the break. (more…)

Nintendo is just on a roll this afternoon. After cutting the price of the Wii U Deluxe Set, announcing the 2DS, and officially revealing the Zelda: Wind Waker Wii U Bundle, the publisher has announced release dates for almost every 2013 game they’ve got coming down the pipe.

Here’s what the Wii U’s release schedule looks like:

  • The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD (eShop: September 20, Retail: October 4)
  • Wii Party U (October 25)
  • Super Mario 3D World (November 22)
  • Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze (December 6)
  • Wii Fit U (Holiday)
  • Mario & Sonic at the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games (Holiday)

And over on the 3DS, both The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds and Mario Party: Island Tour will launch on November 22.

In case you were wondering, the release date for Super Smash Bros. 4 is still “TBA 2014.”
