US: Nintendo Downloads 10th March 2016

Nintendo of America has revealed exactly what’s available this week to download on the Nintendo 3DS and Wii U eShop. If you’re a JRPG fan then you will want to check out the extensive Bravely Second demo titled The Ballad of the Three Cavaliers. Oh, and if you like Mega Man games then you’ll be pleased to know that Mega Man Battle Network 6 Cybeast Falzar and Mega Man Battle Network 6 Cybeast Gregar are on the Wii U Virtual Console. There’s also new DLC for Fire Emblem Fates. Here’s what’s available this week!

  • eShop on Wii U
    • Star Ghost – Save the galaxy from the Metagons in this explosive shoot-’em-up by former Rare and Retro Studios developer Rhys Lewis. Star Ghost features procedurally generated levels, a unique control scheme and an atmospheric soundtrack from renowned composer David Wise. It is available exclusively in Nintendo eShop on Wii U. Click here to see the trailer.
  • Virtual Console on Wii U
    • MEGA MAN BATTLE NETWORK 6 CYBEAST FALZAR and MEGA MAN BATTLE NETWORK 6 CYBEAST GREGAR – After moving with his family to Cyber City, Lan, with the help of Mega Man, must intervene before an ancient creature of enormous power destroys the network and the world.

  • Nintendo eShop on Nintendo 3DS
    • Blast ’Em Bunnies – Blast ’Em Bunnies is an endless first-person shooter in which you must defend your rabbit burrow using fun new types of weapons and ammo. From Watermelon Machineguns firing sticky raspberries to Turnip Mortars firing explosive Pepper Bombs (which release heat-seeking chili seeds), you’d better get shooting those coins to buy all of the upgrades.

    • BRAVELY SECOND: END LAYER DEMO The Ballad of the Three Cavaliers – Square Enix’s critically acclaimed Bravely Default game is all set to enjoy a much-lauded sequel, and you can try a portion of it right now, for free. In the BRAVELY SECOND: END LAYER DEMO The Ballad of the Three Cavaliers, you’ll return to the land of Luxendarc and embark on a bonus adventure not found in the main game. Make sure to try out different jobs during your adventure. Whether they’re formidable fighters and mages looking to test their skills, giant trolls with a chip on their shoulder or alien entities with a bent for drama, all of them pose a risky challenge … along with the irresistible promise of great rewards.
  • New DLC
    • Fire Emblem Fates: Revelation – This third path in the Fire Emblem Fates story reveals many secrets not available in the Birthright or Conquest versions. Players who own either Fire Emblem Fates: Birthright or Fire Emblem Fates: Conquest can purchase Revelation for $19.99 via the Dragon’s Gate in game. Once purchased, a third option will appear at the Branch of Fate moment of the game: “Refuse to Choose a Side.” Additional content will be released on a weekly basis through April 21 and is all part of Map Pack 1 available now for purchase.

  1. Another Mega Man virtual console? Come on! It’s like their go-to franchise. Half the VC is probably Mega Man games. Let’s get some Earthworm Jim or some N64/Gamecube games or something interesting. Oh well. I don’t know why I bother with VC articles anymore.

    1. Sorry, the 3DS can play wii games, but not SNES games, so certainly not N64 games.

      Just shows how much Wii games sucked. It’s easier for Nintendo to get them working on a 3DS than a SNES game…

      Unless the whole, “SNES won’t run on a 3DS” excuse is truly bullshit.

  2. It will be nice to plug in my Revelations code today, although I’m not even half way through Conquest.
    Goddamn, if you don’t want people to die, it takes a while to beat the levels. Hard and Classic for me! And so much fun, even if I get frustrated most nights.

    I might pick up Code of Princess Digitally… It was a fun brawler.

    1. *waiting on Bravely Second demo to download right now* Hyrule Warriors Legends? What’s that again? Is that the 3DS port that’s screwing the Wii U release out of more sales?

        1. At least let us use our amiibo to transfer our characters levels & badges over from the Wii U version to the 3DS version. I refuse to start over again from scratch. Fuck that shit!

        2. Oh & cross buy would have been nice, too. So if you own the Wii U version digitally, you can get the 3DS version for either free or half off when you buy it digitilly for your 3DS.

    1. They’re too busy trying to figure out what to censor in it.

      “Wait, for 2 frames Tetra has a panty-shot that’s only visible from an angle the camera doesn’t normally go? Better edit that animation so this game doesn’t get bumped up to a T rating.”

      1. That’s a bit extreme. Then again, so is removing lingerie outfits from an M rated game. *cough*FatalFrameV*cough* Oh God no! Please don’t let a bunch of adults see half naked chicks! They can’t handle naked chicks, much less those that are half naked! /s lol

  3. Whatever happened to that other game that tried to sell to us on the Wii U by pointing out that David Wise, the great composer of the music for Donkey Kong Country series, was making the soundtrack for said game?

    Yay! My Bravely Second demo just finished downloading! :D No sight of a demo for Hyrule Warriors Legends? Oh well. Fuck that bullshit noise, anyway.

  4. Too bad Fire Emblem Fates: Revelations doesn’t come as a standalone game. I might have actually strongly considered getting a Fates game then. I like the idea of playing as a group independent of two warring kingdoms trying to bring peace to both kingdoms. In fact, it’s one of my favorite things about the Gundam Seed franchise as one of the main heroes eventually joins a neutral faction trying to stop the fighting between both sides.

    1. I’m downloading it next time I boot my 3DS up, I’ll tell you how it is after I get through the first two paths.

      …Yeah, I got it- I wasn’t going to let the corrupted North American sector keep me from enjoying a game that the devs put a lot of real work into (they’ve still gotten a lot of angry comments from me though). The Birthright side’s story is already pretty engrossing and I can’t wait to see how tough Conquest is.

      1. Too bad the n3DS is region locked or I could just import the Japanese version so I could still support the devs. As it stands, oh well. Them not getting my support is just collateral damage, so I can live with that.
