Nintendo Download For Week of 5-31-2012
Wait – what’s this? A week where the Nintendo Download brings some quality titles? I know this seems like some kind of mean joke that I am pulling, but it’s actually true! In fact, we have two highlights this week, coming in the form of SNK’s 2000 arcade hit Metal Slug 3 and the Game Boy Color port of Ubisoft’s classic platformer Rayman. In addition to that, you’ve got a retro-themed video game, 99Seconds, which makes you fight the clock in order to traverse various obstacles in your way, and popular Japanese puzzle Kakuro by famed publisher Nikoli.
All in all, we’ve got some great content that spans various genres, and there’s something for everyone here. Interested? Read on below to get the full scoop on what is available this week!
Metal Slug 3
Metal Slug 3 is the fourth installment in the Metal Slug series, following Metal Slug, Metal Slug 2 and Metal Slug X. Marco and Tarma are back to blast their way through another action-packed adventure, picking up various weapons along the way. The Slugs are also back and more colorful than ever, with Slugmariners, Drill Slugs and Elephant Slugs joining the original Metal Slugs and Slugnoids. As with previous titles, there are hidden items to be found and POWs to be rescued, while a branching map lets players take a different route to the end with each play-through.
Kakuro by Nikoli
The original Rayman, a critically -acclaimed platforming adventure, is now available on Nintendo 3DS™ Known for its groundbreaking animation and music, Rayman is a game that stands the test of time. One fateful day in the Glade of Dreams, the evil Mr. Dark threatens the world and traps the Electoons. It is up to Rayman to free them and defeat the evil forces. Explore six unique worlds and play through more than 70 levels of platforming madness. Face menacing enemies and epic boss battles. The game is fun for all but difficult to defeat.
The saga continues after 99Bullets. Now your problem isn’t the number of bullets, rather the amount of time. 99Seconds, a fun, retro-style video game, where you can modify time to avoid all kinds of dangers. After finishing off Black Eye, V-99 entered a mysterious zone called Bit 8, without knowing why V-99 could modify time, slow it down and even stop it. But everything became complicated with the appearance of the BLACK VECTORS: mysterious beings that aim to destroy any intruder who reaches Bit 8.
