Bravely Default Demo Headlines This Week's Nintendo Download


Share this Post

During the last Nintendo Direct of 2012, Nintendo announced that it would be releasing a demo for the much anticipated Bravely Default. Now, that wouldn't be much cause for celebration except that the demo features an exclusive side quest that's not in the full game. The demo was promised to us at the beginning of the year, and that promise has been fulfilled.

Nintendo announced that the Bravely Default demo will be available on the 3DS eShop starting today. The demo features a small snippet of the gameplay that players can expect from the full game when it launches on February 7 in North America.

As for other releases, Nintendo has chosen to highlight some of last week's releases in light of the eShop downtime that kept many players from being able to download games on the day after Christmas. Those games include Dr. Luigi, Mario Tennis on the 3DS virtual console and Super Punch-Out!! on the Wii U virtual console.

In new virtual console releases, the Wii U will be getting Mega Man X2 today. The sequel to the original SNES classic features more of the classic gameplay that players have come to expect from the Mega Man X franchise.

Here are the other games hitting the Nintendo eShop today:

  • CastleStorm (Nintendo eShop on Wii U)
  • Bird Mania Christmas 3D (Nintendo eShop on Nintendo 3DS)
  • Cubit The Hardcore Platformer Robot (Nintendo eShop on Nintendo 3DS)
  • EDGE (Nintendo eShop on Nintendo 3DS)
