Nintendo Download – August 11, 2011

Another week and another somewhat lackluster day of downloadable games on Nintendo platforms. In an odd fashion, Nintendo has decided to not push more and more 3D games on the eShop. Instead, they have released a single somewhat unknown title from the GameBoy for the 3DS Virtual Console. Also expect three new titles for DSiWare, including another in the GO! GO! series. WiiWare and Wii Virtual Console get one additional title each. The Nintendo Video channel for 3DS is highlighted once again with two new videos that have hit or plan to hit soon. Finally, Nintendo pushes the 3DS Ambassador program once again, as today is the FINAL day to purchase and log onto the eShop to qualify for the program, which promises 20 free games.

Here is the list of games/videos for this week’s Nintendo Download. The official press release from Nintendo is posted below the list.

  • Avenging Spirit ($2.99)
