The Nintendo Download – 12/28/2013
Call the Doctor, Lu-i-gi, ee-ee!
For whatever reason, it seems Nintendo didn’t update their press site with the usual links and images I use to update this feature every week, thus putting things a bit behind. I decided to go ahead and do things the “informative yet sloppy” way, though, so here it is (albeit a couple of days late). The following is taken from the Business Wire version of the press release, where unfortunately several links were broken.
All things considered (such as the timed nature of the deals), I’m just posting it verbatim from here on in, and hoping Nintendo gets the broken links to work later:
This week’s Nintendo Download includes the following featured content:
- Nintendo eShop on Wii U™
- Dr. Luigi™ – There’s a new doctor in the house! Dr. Mar – or, uh, Dr. Luigi is a new twist on the classic virus-popping puzzle game. Use L-shaped pills in a new game mode and compete with players locally or online. Dr. Luigi will be available exclusively in the Nintendo eShop on Dec. 31.
- Virtual Console™ on Wii U
- Super Punch-Out!!™ – Featuring the tight game play and humor the series is known for, this sequel to the NES™ classic sees Little Mac return to the ring with the World Video Boxing Association belt once again at stake. Slug your way through the grueling, sweat-pounding matches against a cast of characters with unique patterns.
- Virtual Console on Nintendo 3DS™
- Mario Tennis™ – Mario Tennis offers three fun-packed modes of tennis play! Practice your swings and shots in Exhibition Mode; go on the Mario Tour, which offers three different save slots to start your very own tennis adventures; or take a break from the workout, and try your luck on some Mario mini-games.
