Castlevania And BIT.TRIP Runner2 Headline This Week’s Nintendo DownloadBy: Zach Walton - February 28, 2013
Wii U owners are still languishing in the drought of new games that has taken over the console’s early months. March is looking much better, but Wii U owners itching for a new game are at least getting a downloadable title this week.
In this week’s Nintendo Download, BIT.TRIP Presents… Runner2: Future Legend of Rhythm Alien is the sole game to hi the Wii U eShop. It’s an excellent title though, and I’ve been having loads of fun with it on the PC. The Wii U version should be just as good.
The Nintendo 3DS eShop is getting a few releases this week as well. The first is the demo for the highly anticipated Castlevania: Lords of Shadow – Mirror of Fate. The sequel to the original Lords of Shadow sets up the plot of the sequel coming out later this year.
Two 3DS games are also running promotions this week. Fractured Soul, a hardcore action platformer for the 3DS is on sale this week for $7.99. The free Fire Emblem Awakening DLC map will remain that way until March 6. After that, it will go up in price to $2.50. New DLC in the form of the EXPonential Growth map is also available today for $2.50.
Finally, the Wii gets treated to a single WiiWare game today in the form of Retro City Rampage. The title comes highly recommended to those who haven’t yet played it on the PC, Xbox 360, PS3 or Vita.
