The Nintendo Download – 2/13/2014

Super C, AeternoBlade, and Spot the Differences! That’s pretty much it!

Wow, we’re back to another slim week… possibly the slimmest in quite some time!


Super C for Wii U – The Red Falcon is back! Or, at least, he would be, if Konami would ever bother to release the original Contra on any Virtual Console, ever. Nonetheless, this run ‘n gun shoot ’em up for one or two simultaneous players is a classic as you take Bill Rizer and Lance Bean deep into the heart of enemy territory to wipe out the threat of alien invasion which has manifested itself deep in the minds of the Earth’s allied military forces stationed at Fort Firestorm!


Aeternoblade for Nintendo 3DS – Available on February 18th: You’ve had a chance to play the free demo in the Nintendo eShop since December, now you can put the skills you’ve acquired to the test as you aid Freya and Vernia on their quest to exact revenge on Beladim, the Lord of Mist who destroyed Freya’s village!


Spot the Differences! for Nintendo 3DS – 150 photos of landscapes, decorations, animals, still life, and more challenge you to find all of the differences between two very similar but nonetheless different photos.


Spin the Bottle: Bumpie’s Party for Wii U – Not a new addition to the eShop, but rather, the promised update of six new games to the roster. Those who purchased it already will get the update for free, but from this point onward, the price in the Wii U eShop will increase.


Nintendo eShop Sale: Rising Star games for Nintendo 3DS – Until 9am PT on March 13th, Beyblade Evolution, Jewel Master: Cradle of Rome 2, and Girl’s Fashion Shoot are on sale.

That’s it for this week. With any luck, the new Nintendo Direct scheduled for later today will herald some surprise additions to the eShop. Until then, though, you can check out more screens, videos, and info on each of this week’s releases and sale items by clicking the corresponding links above.
