Here’s This Week’s Nintendo Downloads In The US

It’s Christmas Day and there’s a lot of great content arriving on the Wii U and Nintendo 3DS eShop. You’ve got Duck Hunt, Shantae and the Pirates Curse and Mario Party Advance amongst other top titles. You’re basically spoilt for choice. Still, there’s no Donkey Kong Country games though. Let’s hope they’re coming in 2015. Here’s the games you can can download this week.

  • NintendoeShop on Wii U
    • Shantae and the Pirate’s Curse – Embark on a new adventure with Shantae, the hair-whipping belly-dancing genie. After losing her magic, Shantae teams up with the nefarious pirate Risky Boots in order to save Sequin Land from a curse. As a pirate, Shantae gains new weapons to advance her quest, slay monsters, battle epic bosses … and hopefully get her magic back in the process. Click here to watch a trailer for this game.
  • Virtual Console on Wii U
    • Duck Hunt – Grab your Wii Remote controller! It’s duck season and your trusty hunting dog is ready to scour the open fields. Test your sharp-shooting skills as your targets take flight in this legendary NES classic. Be quick to knock them out of the skies, or your canine companion won’t hesitate to make you the laughing stock of hunters. Need a change in scenery? Best your score against clay pigeon targets instead.
    • Mario Party Advance – Bowser has crashed the party and scattered all of Party World’s mini-games and Professor E. Gadd’s Gaddgets around Shroom City! Play as Mario, Luigi, Peach or Yoshi and move around the board to complete special challenges or help the locals solve their problems.

    1. Great fun! My first game I ever played (still have the original cartage too). Has two bonus modes, fun “challenges” (unlocks stuff like the gallery etc,) and the lost levels. Definitely worth it for some classic platforming fun.
