The Nintendo Download – 6/2/2016
Metroid, DK Country, and… Sssnakes?
E3 lurks in the distance, and things are quiet… but not too quiet…
Kick & Fennick for Wii U – Kick is a young boy out to help his robot companion, Fennick, by traveling through 45 levels and blasting baddies with a gun that has enough “kick” to launch him from place to place!
Metroid Prime Hunters for Wii U – Samus Aran and six of the fiercest bounty hunters in the galaxy are in pursuit of the treasure of a lost warrior civilization in order to claim its untold power for themselves.
B3 Game Expo for Bees for Wii U – Take on the role of the newest security bee at the convention hive for the bee gaming convention known as B3. After being distracted by the pre-show hype, it’s time to make things right in this first-person shooter.
153 Hand Video Poker for Wii U – You may be good at playing a winning hand in Poker, but can you handle 153 hands?
Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie’s Double Trouble for Nintendo 3DS – Dixie Kong is back, and this time she’s got her oversized infant cousin Kiddy Kong with her to lend a hand as they fight their way through the Northern Kremisphere in search of Donkey and Diddy!
SSSnakes for Nintendo 3DS – The classic returns, updated for a new era. Modern visuals appear on the top screen, while a more simplified map appears on the bottom. Plus, you can now shoot to take out rival snakes! Just don’t accidentally snack on yourself!
Fire Emblem Fates – New DLC Map V: Endless Dawn – In this fifth part of “Heirs of Fate,” Shigure leads the party storms the enemy. This pack goes for $1.99 USD. (I know this was posted last week. Strangely enough, this is what was in the press release; I’m not sure if it didn’t get released last week, or they just forgot to update this week’s.)
Fire Emblem Fates – Map Pack 2 DLC – Other versions of the Hoshidan and Nohrian children from other dimensions are under attack. These fledgling warriors of the Deeprealms are now forced to save themselves and their parents by rising up and discovering the mystery of their adversaries. Your leveled-up units from the main Fire Emblem Fates: Birthright and Fire Emblem Fates: Conquest games are unable to lend their assistance in this six-map series, which you can receive as they are released for $7.99 USD.
