The Nintendo Download – 7/10/2014

Bases Loaded, Rabi Lady 3, The Letter, and more.

This week’s Nintendo Download is short but sweet– due in part to the strangeness that was One Piece Unlimited World Red being included in last week’s assets, but this week’s press release. So I ran it last week, making this week’s offerings look a little thinner than they should.

What a world, eh?


Bases Loaded for Wii U and Nintendo 3DS – Hailed as one of the most beloved baseball games on the Nintendo Entertainment System, Bases Loaded is now available for both home and away games. Choose from 12 teams and sort your lineup of 30 players as you prepare to play a single game or go for the pennant in this arcade-style home run hitter.


The Letter for Wii U – This first-person adventure horror game puts you in the role of Michael Kennedy, who has received a mysterious letter from his father, written to him while on the verge of death. Can you solve the mystery of what happened to Michael’s father without succumbing to the same– or worse– fate yourself?


Me & My Pets 3D for Nintendo 3DS – Dogs, cats, horses, rabbits, guinea pigs, birds, and fishes await your care as you feed, play, stroke, brush, groom, and take them for walks in a variety of mini-games determined by each pet’s individual needs.


Rabi Lady 3 for Nintendo 3DS – Alice and Rabi are back! Unfortunately, so is the evil Queen, who has kidnapped the duo and placed them in her labyrinth in a bid for revenge! Now they must use their unique skills to escape, discover the Queen’s true intentions, and expose a dark secret in this puzzle-platformer.


Jett Rocket II: The Wrath of Taikai – Free Demo Version for Nintendo 3DS – Planetary inspector Jett Rocket is back, but so is his arch-rival Kaiser Taikai, who has a score to settle– wait, this sounds kind of familiar. In any case, 3D action-adventure awaits, and you can get a sample dose with this free demo! And if that convinces you to get the full game… (see below)
