Share this Post

The Nintendo Download is here again to give Wii U and 3DS owners a smattering of interactive entertainment to keep them busy for a few days. Unfortunately, there's not a lot to choose from this week, but what's there should provide gamers with some quality entertainment.

Nintendo announced this morning that the Wii U eShop is only getting one major release today in the form of Unepic. The indie title follows the exploits of Daniel - an RPG geek who is transported to a mysterious castle in the middle of a tabletop RPG session. From there, players help Daniel navigate the platforming challenges of the castle to escape death at the hands of its denizens.

Here's a trailer to give you an idea of how the game plays:

The only other Wii U eShop release this week is F1 Race Stars Powered Up Edition. It's a kart racer based on the real world F1 racing circuit. It was released on PC, Xbox 360 and PS3 in 2012 with a Wii U version being promised the same year. It may have taken them a bit longer than planned, but the Wii U version is finally out complete with all the DLC that was released on the other versions.

As for virtual console releases, there's only one this week and it's appearing on both 3DS and Wii U. Castlevania II: Simon's Quest, one of the most infamous titles in the franchise, is now available to download. In a major departure from the first title, Simon's Quest plays more like an RPG where players gather items, explore large environments and level up their abilities as they attempt to break the curse that's been put upon Simon.
