Nintendo Download – July 12, 2012
Today, get a kung fu kick out of your 3DS, 8-Bit Summer continues with some GameBoy titles, and the Wii Shop goes retro.
First up is a new hopeful hit for the 3DS — Johnny Kung Fu has you rescuing your girlfriend from the Mr. Wang Gang. We have been approached for a review, so look for our thoughts soon. Another new game available today for 3DS is Sweet Memories: Black Jack, which sounds like a calming casino title. The 8-Bit Summer series brings us Kirby’s Pinball Land and The Sword of Hope II. The other thing to mention for 3DS is the July 13-15 sale of Mighty Switch Force. If you have not downloaded it yet, this is the perfect time.
Moving over to the Big N’s other handheld, we have two new titles for DSiWare, which are also playable on 3DS. This week brings us Candle Route and Ace Mathician. Both seem to be simple games, and for only a couple bucks each, you may want to check them out.
Rounding out this week’s Nintendo Download are a couple retro arcade games coming to the Wii. Those include Frogger: Hyper Arcade Edition for WiiWare and The King of Fighters ’96 for the Virtual Console. If you are a fan of either series, you do not have to wait for us to tell you to download these right away. And for those wondering, we have heard from many trusted sources that WiiWare and Virtual Console games will be transferrable to the Wii U, so do not worry about that.
The only other thing many say is worth mentioning is Big Time Rush’s new single, Window’s Down, is coming to the 3DS’ Nintendo Video app. Are you a fan? If so, check out the free 3D streaming video.
