Nintendo Download – January 5, 2012

Here we are in the year 2012, and here is another week with a low number of games released. However, just because the number is low does not mean the quality is also low.

This week, we have four new games. Samurai Sword Destiny is a beat-em-up for the 3DS eShop that looks pretty good. Both Quick Fill Q and 3 Heroes – Crystal Soul come to DSiWare with some promise. Zombies make their way to WiiWare in Zombii Attack. And finally, Nintendo decided to announce the Swapnote messaging app for 3DS, even though it came out two weeks ago.

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