The Nintendo Download – 2/18/2016
Many new strategies for Nintendo 3DS while Wii U goes retro.
A nice loadout today, even though the biggest names on the list won’t be available until tomorrow. But, as seen in the banner, at least we finally have some releases to the Wii U Virtual Console that are long overdue — I was wondering if they’d ever arrive!
Fire Emblem Fates: Birthright for Nintendo 3DS – Available February 19th: Choose the family you were born to in Fire Emblem Fates: Birthright, and take on the corrupted Nohr kingdom alongside the family you never knew!
Fire Emblem Fates: Conquest for Nintendo 3DS – Available February 19th: Choose the family you were raised by in Fire Emblem Fates: Conquest, and fight for change from within the misguided Nohr kingdom.
Fire Emblem Fates: Map Pack 1 for Nintendo 3DS – Available February 19th: 11 additional maps and bonus content are yours to be had with this downloadable content pack. Gain new insight into your allies and revisit some familiar faces from Fire Emblem Awakening. The first map is free, but additional maps will come weekly until April 21st, and those who purchase Map Pack 1 will receive it as it’s released.
Project X Zone 2 for Nintendo 3DS – Heroes from Capcom, SEGA, Namco Bandai, and even Nintendo come together in this multiverse-spanning strategy game. You can find Nadia’s review of it at USgamer (mine is coming soon in Nintendo Force magazine).
Musicverse: Electronic Keyboard for Nintendo 3DS – Make and store up to 128 musical creations, which you can then share across Miiverse, Twitter, and Facebook!
Ninja Gaiden II: The Dark Sword of Chaos for Wii U – Following the failure of his servant, the Jaquio, Emperor of Darkness Ashtar has begun putting his own plans into motion. Fortunately, Ryu Hayabusa, the last of the Dragon Clan and wielder of the legendary Dragon Sword, is here to put a halt to his schemes!
Ninja Gaiden III: The Ancient Ship of Doom for Wii U – In this prequel to Ninja Gaiden II, Ryu has been framed for the death of a colleague, and is out to find the true culprit!
TAP TAP ARCADE for Wii U – Two bucks (USD) for two of RCMADIAX’s most popular games: a lane-changing top-down racer and a Flappy Bird clone.
