Here’s This Week’s Nintendo Downloads For The United States

Nintendo of America has detailed exactly which games you will be able to get your hands on this week via the Nintendo 3DS and Wii U eShop. You will be pleased to learn that Freedom Planet is finally available for download after suffering numerous delays. Those in Europe hoping for the game will have to wait a little longer as the game isn’t expected to come out until November. Anyway, here is what is available this week in the United States.

  • Nintendo eShop on Wii U and Nintendo 3DS
    • Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U – DLC – Fans of Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U can now add even more fun with a free update and new DLC for purchase on both versions. The free update includes a Duck Hunt stage for Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and the ability to upload match replay highlights to YouTube in the Wii U version of the game. In addition, players can now purchase new Mii Fighter costumes – like Fox (from the and Star Fox series) and Toad outfits – as well as a Pirate Ship stage for Super Smash Bros. for Wii U inspired by The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker and a Super Mario Maker stage for both versions of the game.

  • Nintendo eShop on Wii U
    • Freedom Planet – Fight your way across the celestial world of Avalice, where cats are green, motorcycles drive up walls and monster girls do most of the butt kicking! Freedom Planet is a cartoony, combat-based platform adventure that pits a spunky dragonoid and her friends against an alien attack force. If you downloaded the demo during the limited-time Nindies@Home promotion, you can save 15 percent off your purchase of Freedom Planet until Nov 1. Click here to view a trailer for the game.
    • Toto Temple Deluxe – Toto Temple Deluxe is a fast-paced, local-multiplayer king-of-the-hill style game, in which players must steal an egg-laying goat from their friends and try to keep it on their own head for as long as possible. You know, normal stuff. Be the first to grab the explosive goat and keep it long enough for it to detonate near your soon-to-be-dead rivals. Lose the goat and the timer resets. Play as teams or in free-for-all. Click here to watch a trailer for the game.
  • Virtual Console on Wii U
    • River City Ransom – In this much-loved NES classic, free River City from the clutches of Slick and his underlings. Battle it out on the streets solo or with a friend.

    1. And I just downloaded that Freedom Planet and it’s awesome as fuck plus that Super Mario Maker stage is one of the best stages in Smash

        1. Yeah both of those games have a great chance of going to the 3DS because the Freedom Planet developer did say that he wants to put it on the 3DS but as far as the 3DS version of Super Mario Maker goes, because of it’s graphical limitations I don’t think the 3DS version (if it is one) will have New Super Mario Bros. U in it. Probably the original New Super Mario Bros. DS or New Super Mario Bros 2 will be in it’s place

          1. I really hope for a Freedom Planet 3DS port. As for Mario Maker 3DS, it will have the original NES/SNES (hopefully) including the “Mario All Stars” enhanced sprites along with Mario Land 1/2 and for New Mario Bros, they can go with the DS/NSMB2 versions.
