The Nintendo Download – 3/27/2014

It’s The Legend of Sonic, and it’s way past cool.

There is no shortage of crazy stuff going on in the Nintendo Download this week, and the craziest part of all is free! Or is it that the craziest one is free the craziest part?


Dr. Mario for Wii U – Call the doctor, Mario! Oh-oh! If you’re more interested in a vintage cure for boredom than what’s on offer from Dr. Mario Online Rx on WiiWare or Dr. Luigi in the Wii U eShop, then today’s Nintendo Download is just what the doctor ordered! Play single-player to see how many levels you can complete before the number of viruses and the speed of the capsules is too much, or take on a friend and score some combos to really put the pressure on them.

Sonic Lost World Downloadable Content for Wii U – A new, free downloadable level for Sonic Lost World features a theme based on The Legend of Zelda, and it looks pretty cool!

Using the power of the Black Bomb Color Powers, Sonic is able to uncover hidden chambers and treasure chests with valuable items within, all while taking on the villains of Hyrule as only he can.
