The Nintendo Download – 1/22/2015

It’s a small week, but a pretty good one. Quality over quantity, right?


Punch-Out!! for Wii U – Following Super Mario Galaxy 2 last week is the Wii U release of the Wii return of Little Mac and Doc Louis as they punch through all comers on their way to championship gold in this update of the NES classic. Until 8:59am PT on January 29th, you can get this one for $10.99 instead of the regular $21.99, 50 percent off.


Breezeblox for Wii U – Using special cubes to trigger actions, your goal in this puzzle game is to make it to the end cube without moving off the platform. Can you master all 150 levels?


Midnight for Wii U – Use the Wii U GamePad to launch the squarish fairy, Midnight, like a golf ball to the goal. But watch out for obstacles and hazards as you clear each of the 28 courses!


Citizens of Earth for Wii U and Nintendo 3DS – As the Vice President of the World, your goal in this retro-styled role playing game (which feels like it was inspired by Earthbound) is to recruit the yoga instructor, the cop, your mom, and all the other citizens to fight your battles for you. “Don’t ask what you can do for your countrymen…Ask what your countrymen can do for you!” Check out a trailer here.


S.C.A.T. for Wii U and Nintendo 3DS – The year is 2029, and as a half-human soldier (or soldiers, if you bring along a friend) from the Special Cybernetic Attack Team, your mission is to meet the alien forces of Supreme Commander Vile Malmort invading your planet on the field of battle. Five stages of alien-blasting action stand between them and conquest– can you hold the line and force them back to where they came from? Check out the trailer here.


Undead Storm Nightmare – Full and Demo Versions for Nintendo 3DS – In this sequel to the Nintendo DSi title Undead Storm, you’ll fight off hordes of zombies with such upgradeable weapons as assault rifles, rocket launchers, chainsaws, and samurai swords! Team up with three friends in local multiplayer to increase your odds of survival.
