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

Nintendo of America has revealed the games that will be available this week via the Nintendo 3DS and Wii U eShop. It’s a good week for Wii U owners as Xenoblade Chronicles X launches on Friday. If the vast JRPG isn’t your thing then you may want to check out the acclaimed Trauma Team on the Wii U Virtual Console. If you only have a Nintendo 3DS Pokémon Picross is a sure fire winner. Here’s the games for this week.

  • Nintendo eShop on Wii U
    • Xenoblade Chronicles X – Earth has fallen. Yet mankind endures, taking to the stars and crash-landing on an alien world in a desperate attempt to escape. Defend the survivors using high-tech weaponry on a mission to rebuild humanity. Suit up in heavily armed mechs to tame the wilds of planet Mira and beat back the hostile forces threatening to obliterate the human race.
    • Trauma Team – Carefully review patient cases and decide on the best course for treatment as you assume the role of six different medical professionals. With steady hands on the Wii Remote and Nunchuk controllers, make quick decisions to keep your patient’s vitals stable.
  • Nintendo eShop on Nintendo 3DS
    • Pokémon Picross – Pokémon Picross is a puzzle game in which you reveal a hidden Pokémon illustration. Once you solve an illustration of a Pokémon, you can collect that Pokémon. Collected Pokémon help you solve more difficult puzzles. With more than 300 standard Pokémon puzzles, a significantly harder advanced mode and Daily Training, this game will supply hours of enjoyment. Pokémon Picross is free-to-start and is available today at 9 a.m. PT in the Nintendo eShop on Nintendo 3DS.
    • Dementium Remastered – Rebuilt from the ground up to take advantage of the Nintendo 3DS system, Dementium Remastered takes the guts of Renegade Kid’s award-winning game and delivers a new and improved atmospheric first-person survival horror experience with enhanced graphics, refined game play, high-quality audio and immersive control options.

  1. I was really considering getting Dementium…ugh. Looks my 3DS found a way to get some play amid the big hitters afterall.

    1. I already played (and sold) both Dementium games for the DS. They’re both impressive FPS horror games and definitely crepped me out.

      Especially that one enemy that screeches like a banshee and flies directly at you.

    1. Don’t Starve is pretty fun. You have to be careful or you’re dead, like…real careful. Def worth picking up next time it’s on sale!

  2. Pre-ordered my limited edition copy of Xenoblade Chronicles X on GameStop’s online website, so I won’t be seeing it for another week.

  3. I’m enjoying Pokémon Picross. The free-to-wait aspect of it is of course, rather annoying, but the idea of different Pokémon giving you different powers is actually rather novel – and it’s fantastic to see novelty in a Picross game at this stage! Of course it makes me wish there was a paid-for version without the free-to-play nonsense. Also would be nice if all of the Pokémon were in the game, as any Pokémon game that fails to include all of the Pokémon feels a little incomplete to me.
