December 6, 2013 - Another small week for the Nintendo Download. This week's highlights are two more 3D Classics on 3DS by Sega and The Legend of the Mystical Ninja on Wii U's Virtual Console. There's also a Wii U and 3DS eShop sale on select Donkey Kong titles this week. Check out all of this week's updates at noon eastern today on your favorite digital storefront.
The Legend of the Mystical Ninja (Super Nintendo) - Konami, $7.99
Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2 - Gamemill Entertainment, $29.99
I went ahead and downloaded 3D Sonic The Hedgehog. For the most part, it is what it is, but the use of 3D is well done. There's some cool options to use too, like being able to use abilities not introduced until Sonic 2, and there's even an option to play the Japanese version of the game. Plus some other stuff, too. Not too shabby.
But for the most part, it's the Genesis game. For $6, I'd say it's worth the price. Especially considering the Wii Virtual Console game is $2 more, but has no perks or extra benefits to it. Of course, it's old-school Sonic, so YMMV.
Do you still have Animal Crossing for Gamecube? It's playable in that game, if you wanna give it a "demo" first. It's a weird mix of a SHMUP and...platformer/puzzle game. It's my least favorite of the trilogy, but...I dunno, maybe you'll see something that's more intriguing than I did. It's certainly challenging, that's for sure.
