Share And Comment

It’s time for another installment of Nintendo download, and this week, we have two new games for the 8-bit Summer series, a new 3DS exclusive title, a new music video on Nintendo Video, and much more.

Kirby’s Pinball Land and The Sword of Hope II make appearances as Virtual Console titles on 3DS this week. Originally released on Game Boy, Sword of Hope II is a classic RPG. Kirby’s Pinball Land, also originally released on Game Boy, is, as you may expect, Pinball with a Kirby twist. Sword of Hope II is available for $2.99, while Kirby’s Pinball Land is available for $3.99.

On the eShop front, Johnny Kung Fu gets released this week for $5.99. The title is a beat ’em up taking inspiration from various forms of classic gameplay, with some callbacks going as far back as the old Game & Watch games. Check this out, it does look kind of cool.

The Game of the Weekend this week is Mighty Switch Force!, a well-received action-puzzler dropping down to $2.99 from 9 a.m. Pacific time on Friday, July 13, through 9 p.m. Pacific time on Sunday, July 15.

Lastly, Nintendo is featuring the new release of a 3D trailer of Big Time Rush’s “Windows Down”. That’s got to be exciting for someone, right?

In other news, the Wii is getting Frogger: Hyper Arcade Edition on WiiWare and The King of Fighters ’96 for Virtual Console. Releasing both on 3DS and DSi comes Ace Mathician and Candle Route. Finally, Sweet Memories: Black Jack comes exclusively for 3DS.
