The Nintendo Download – 5/8/2014

Two Mega Man games, Wario Land 4, and more!

Well, this is going to be an odd week. We have some great releases, but for whatever reason, Nintendo’s zip of screens isn’t working, so we’re doing things a bit differently, and I’m using videos for all the big titles.

Mega Man II for Nintendo 3DS – The odd Mega Man out in the Game Boy series (it was developed by a different team than the rest), Mega Man II sees Mega Man face his greatest challenge yet– himself! Dr. Wily has stolen a time machine to travel into the future, where he turns his peace-loving self-to-be back to the dark side, kidnapping the future version of Mega Man and turning him into a weapon of evil. Along with eight returning Robot Masters with revenge on their minds, can Mega Man (and his robodog Rush) hope to overcome his past and his future? You decide!

Mega Man III for Nintendo 3DS – This time out, Wily takes control of an offshore oil rig to drill to the center of the Earth in order to power his latest creation! Eight returning Robot Masters stand in Mega Man’s way, though, enforcing the mad scientist’s will. Fortunately, Mega Man and Rush have some back-up in the form of Eddie, the flip-top cybernetic suitcase robot!

Grinsia for Nintendo 3DS – Join a family of three treasure hunters in this 16-bit styled role playing game from Kemco. A search for ancient ruins housing untold riches soon becomes a quest to save the world itself!

THE “DENPA” MEN 3 The Rise of Digitoll – Full and Demo Versions for Nintendo 3DS – The third game in the series of augmented reality RPGs which allow you to catch and form an army of the titular men from scanning the world around you. The full version is available now, or you can try out the free demo to see if it’s right for you.

Wario Land 4 for Wii U – This Game Boy Advance classic follows Wario through 20 levels of treasure-finding adventure. But just when you think you’ve reached the end, guess again! It becomes a race to the true finish as Wario must escape or be trapped forever!


Parking Star 3D for Nintendo 3DS – 40 maps span five city levels in this leisure-styled game. From Beijing to Dubai, Paris, Tokyo, and New York, you’ll take control of four different types of vehicle, each with their own unique abilities as you drive around and try to park your car as quickly as possible without damaging others.


Gardening Mama 2: Forest Friends – Demo Version for Nintendo 3DS – See if helping Mama out in her garden is right for you with this free demo version of the recent release.

Jewel Quest 4 Heritage for Nintendo 3DS and Nintendo DSi – The government has confiscated the Golden Jewel Board, and they’re delivering it to the sinister Sebastian Grenard. By swapping jewels and collecting puzzle pieces, you can help Rupert investigate family secrets buried long ago in order to discover the truth and save the day!


Sokomania 2: Cool Job for Nintendo 3DS and Nintendo DSi – This classic style of game puts you in charge of a warehouse, moving boxes to their target destination in as few moves as possible. 100 levels, a rewind feature, and leaderboards are all included.
