Nintendo Download: Xeodrifter, Badland: Game of the Year Edition, more


Nintendo update the Nintendo eShop today with a trio of new games for the Wii U and another three for the 3DS. Though one can be played on both systems with a single purchase.

Yes, Nintendo is offering another Cross-Buy promotion with Rengeade Kid’s Xeodrifter. The Metroidvania-style Wii U game will offer players “mystery and adventure” as they “blast through alien landscapes, seek out valuable secrets, and defeat ancient guardians.” As a Cross-Buy title, purchasing Xeodrifter on the Wii U will also make the game available to download on the 3DS, and vice versa.

Also available this week is Badland: Game of the Year Edition, a high definition upgrade of the popular mobile game. The Game of the Year Edition of the side-scroller comes with “more than 15 hours of single-player levels” and a four-player local multiplayer mode.

More information on these titles, and a small handful of additional Wii U and 3DS games, can be found after the break. (more…)

Nintendo Download: Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy, Xeodrifter, more


Do you object to hearing about this week’s Nintendo Download? I wouldn’t, because Capcom has added the Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy collection to the 3DS eShop. The wild courtroom antics of Phoenix Wright will be joined on the 3DS eShop by Xeodrifter, a Metroidvania-style game from Moon Chronicles developer Renegade Kid.

In other eShop release news this week, Activision is opening up their vault once again and dropping a ton of older 3DS and Wii U games onto Nintendo’s digital storefront. Angry Birds Trilogy (3DS and Wii U), Angry Birds Star Wars (3DS and Wii U), Wipeout 2 (3DS), and Transformers: Dark of the Moon (3DS) are all available to download now.

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