Nintendo Download – October 11, 2012

Look out 3DS eShop. It seems Nintendo has declared October as their month to really push their handheld download service!

To start with, the Game Boy Color version of Mario Golf hits the 3DS eShop along with a LEGO Lord of the Rings demo, some Spirit Hunters Inc. videos, Crazy Kangaroo, and Nurikabe by Nikoli. If that is not enough, you can download Robot Rescue for DSi or 3DS, and you can also get The Last Blade 2 for the Wii Virtual Console.

On top of that, Meat or Die has a new 3D video, Helena, available for free on the 3DS Nintendo Video app.
