Nintendo Download For Week of 6-14-2012
Well, would you look at that. This week’s Nintendo Download is….full of win! I know, you usually wouldn’t associate such positivity to this kind of thing, but I speak the truth. Perhaps it’s Nintendo’s way of saying “our bad” for their rather poor showing at this year’s E3, though either way we should be happy to see some quality games hit their digital service.
While it may not be a mega-popular game, arcade light gun shooter Mad Dog McCree has the right amount of cheese to it to give gamers a fun time. For those who did not have the pleasure of playing this decidedly 90′s video game when it was originally released, it is now available on the 3DS eShop for the reasonable price of $7.99. For those gamers seeking a more universally loved game from the past, Nintendo has you covered with the release of Mega Man X2 for the WiiWare service (I know, I know – the Wii is still alive!) for 800 Wii Points.
That’s not all, as you also have the public release of Donkey Kong Jr. on the eShop, which was available (free) for Nintendo 3DS Ambassadors in the past, and a demo for the upcoming The Amazing Spider-Man. All in all, not too shabby, Nintendo!
