The Nintendo Download – 11/1/12

There isn’t too much going on this week in the Nintendo Download, as far as downloadable content available for purchase. The highlight would be Freakyforms Deluxe: Your Creations, Alive!, except that isn’t due in the Nintendo eShop and at retail until Monday, November 5th, making it more of a “next week” thing, in a sense. This sequel to last year’s Nintendo eShop release of the original Freakyforms: Your Creations, Alive! doesn’t have a price listed, but and EBGames are listing it at $19.99.

Available now, on the other hand, is the second demo for Style Savvy: Trendsetters. While the last one focused on modeling, this one gives you the opportunity to take part in a shopping spree.

I reviewed the dual-screen plaformer Fractured Soul a little while back, but if you’re still not sure what it’s all about, or just want to see it in action for yourself before buying, there are now videos on the Nintendo eShop. There, you can “find out what makes the game so unique, discover some of the thoughts behind development and learn more about speed-running tricks.”

Speaking of videos, there will be a new Meat or Die episode on Nintendo Video called “Coco & Chiling” on November 6th. Yans and Grans will have their work cut out for them as they attempt to catch a snack light enough to fly.

The one new release exclusive to the Nintendo eShop that is available right now is 2 Fast 4 Gnomz, a $4.99 action-adventure game. One player gets to control four different gnomes as they run and jump to save kingdoms and princesses, as well as a number of lost socks.

Spot It! Mean Machines for both Nintendo DSiWare and the Nintendo eShop is based on the series of books of the same name, and up to four players can join in to find items hidden away in each scene. It’s $1.99 on the Nintendo eShop or 200 DSiPoints.

Finally, Cake Ninja 2, you and a friend can each cut cake to see who can earn the best score. It’s $4.99 on Nintendo eShop and 500 DSiPoints on Nintendo DSiWare.

That’s everything for this week. Click each of the relevant links above to find more screens, videos, and information on each of this week’s releases.
