Nintendo Download – May 31, 2012

This is a good week for Nintendo consoles, as the 3DS, DSi and Wii get new games.  This week the 3DS gets a virtual console game and original 3DS-ware game.  The DSiWare also increases with a new title (also playable/downloadable on 3DS), and finally the Wii Virtual Console gets a new game.

Rayman joins the 3DS Virtual Console, which is a platforming game with 70 different levels.  Metal Slug 3 joins the Wii Virtual Console service which is an action/multiplayer/shooter game.

New on the 3DS eShop is Kakuro By Nikoli which is a puzzle/strategy game.  Also, new on DSiWare and 3DS is 99Seconds which is retro-style video game in which you can modify time to avoid danger.
