Nintendo Download – November 3, 2011

UPDATE: Apparently, Nintendo forgot to include a third DSiWare title in their press release. Cut the Rope is also available this week!

Hey, everyone! It’s Thursday, and that means Nintendo Download Day! Recently, it seems that Nintendo has moved their Virtual Console support from Wii to 3DS, as it has been several weeks with no word on a Wii VC release. All in all, our downloadable list increases by just four today.

The GameBoy title Balloon Kid comes to the 3DS. This is actually a quality game, and for three bucks, you may want to download it. DSiWare chugs along with two new games — 1950s Lawn Mower Kids and the fourth episode of House M.D. We round out the games with the arcade fighter Gnomz for WiiWare.

For you fans of Zelda, if you are a 3DS owner, you will definitely want to check out the Nintendo Video app for a sneak peak into the Zelda 25th Anniversary Tour.

As another reminder, if you have not done so yet, download your ten free NES games available for all Nintendo 3DS Ambassadors. Speaking of which, NintendoFuse is holding a HUGE competition surrounding those ten Ambassador games! Make sure to join in, because you could win a copy of Skyward Sword, Super Mario 3D Land, or Mario Kart 7!

As always, check out the price list and official press release below. Be sure to let us know if you download a game and what you think.
