This Week’s Nintendo Downloads (10/4/10)

With the start of a new week comes a slew of new Nintendo downloads for Wii and DSi to spend their hard-earned Nintendo Points on. This week sees the return of the Virtual Console and the usual round of WiiWare and DSiWare titles.

Virtual Console

  • Fatal Fury 3: Road to the Final Victory: 1-2 Players, Published by D4 Enterprise, Fighting, 900 Wii Points, Rated T

If you’re a fan of Neo Geo fighters, then you can’t go wrong with Fatal Fury 3: Road to the Final Victory. This title isn’t too much of a step forward from Fatal Fury Special, but it’s still worth your coveted Wii Points if you’re a an arcade fighting game fan.


  • Learning with the PooYoos: Episode 3: 1 Player, Published by Lexis Numerique, Edutainment, 500 Wii Points, Rated EC

When I was a kid, I started my gamer lifestyle with Super Mario Bros. on the NES. These days parents tend to take a different approach. While my parents were alright with throwing me in front of the TV at 4 years old and letting me play one of the greatest games of all time, the 21st century parent is a little different. That’s where Learning with the PooYoos comes in. So far, the first three installments have received fairly favorable reviews, so this third installment may fall right in there with its predecessors. If you want to introduce your 3-6 year olds to video games while still having them learn things, you can’t go wrong with this title, especially given its $5 price tag. (Or you can download Super Mario Bros. on the Virtual Console for the same price and turn them into hardcore gamers at the age of 4. I’m just sayin’.)

  • Racers’ Island: Crazy Racers: 1-4 Players, Published by Zallag, Racing, 1,000 Wii Points, Rated E

If you’d rather get your racing fix instead of a little edutainment, then you can check out Racers’ Island: Crazy Racers. Power-ups, weird vehicles, and trophies. Yes, this is pretty much what gamers have come to expect from racing games.


  • Rummikub: 1-4 Players, Published by Games Factory Online, Board Game, 800 DSi Points, Rated E

Play against three other friends or take on the computer in this board game download. If you’re into puzzles with friends, this is the download for you.

  • Shantae: Risky’s Revenge: 1 Player, Published by Wayforward, Platformer, 1,200 DSi Points, Rated E10+

Chances are if you played the first Shantae for the Game Boy Color, you absolutely loved that title. For those of you who have been awaiting a sequel for years, you can now play the successor to the portable cult classic. Even if you haven’t played the first Shantae, you may still want to check this one out.
