This week’s Nintendo Download includes the following featured content:

Nintendo eShop on Wii U

Art Academy: Home Studio
– Now it’s easier than ever to make your home an art studio as you learn to paint and draw, or sharpen your current skills. Follow along with 30 new art lessons, and create your own masterpieces using the Wii U GamePad controller. Share works of art via Miiverse, and even upload time-lapse videos of your creations to YouTube. If you have the Art Academy: SketchPad software on your Wii U system, you’ll get $4.00 off when you buy Art Academy: Home Studio. To take advantage of this offer, visit the Nintendo eShop on Wii U.

Never Alone (Kisima Ingitchuna) – Never Alone is an atmospheric puzzle platformer developed in collaboration with the Iñupiat, an Alaska Native people, drawn from a traditional story that has been shared across generations. Available exclusively in the Wii U version of the Never Alone game, collect more than 20 in-game Cultural Artifacts that feature beautiful high-resolution images and compelling background information drawn from the collections of the Smithsonian Institution.

Shiftlings – Control two adorably dimwitted space janitors in this quirky puzzle platformer. You must shift size and weight between the two cosmic custodians, who are conjoined by an air hose, to avoid dangerous traps and fix problems before disaster strikes. Play on your own or with a friend locally through the zaniest locations in the known (and unknown) universe.

Virtual Console on Wii U

Star Fox Command
– An evil has emerged from the planet Venom, and now Fox McCloud and his elite team of pilots must reunite to defend the Lylat system from a massive invasion. Plot strategic flight paths on the touch screen as you soar through a story that features nine different endings and popular characters like Falco Lombardi and Krystal.

Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time – In this quest of lunatic proportions, Mario and Luigi team up with none other than … their younger selves! Originally appearing on the Nintendo DS system, control both sets of brothers at once in this intriguing (and hilarious) action RPG that leads you beyond the Mushroom Kingdom. Explore Mario’s world across space and time as you take down the evil alien invaders, the Shroobs!

Downloaded Never Alone. Surprising amount of content. It comes with a bit by bit (you open it up as you play to get context for the symbols in the game) mini-documentary on the Inuit (I think that is the term I'm looking for, could be wrong) people in Alaska.

So awesome



Kinda curious... should we even bother with a discussion thread for this?

Getting M&L and also just picked up three Sega 3D Classics (all games I've never played): Super Hang On, Galaxy Force II and Shinobi III

Ooo, a retail GG bundle? I'd buy the shit out of that. C'mon, XSEED. Make it happen!

How many GG games do you have?

@canonj
They aren't (all) shovelware! Some of them are pretty good, man.

@canonj
Some of them are neat little games! They're super basic and simple, but kinda charming.

@Anand
Not that many really, at one point I had like 3 or 4 but when I transferred my DSi to 3DS there was an error and I lost all my DSi games. D-Tank I had a dupe of because I had already bought it twice to play on my XL (I had a regular DSi and an XL), that's the only one I have left. The other cool one I really liked called Hidden Ninja, so cool.

I've recently become completely immune to any and all digital sales except for games that I'm going to play immediately, but now is the perfect time to get the rest of those Sega 3D Classics I don't yet own. I already have 6, but there are 4 of these on sale I have to get. I actually tend to prefer to pay full price on games I like to support, but hey, I can always make exceptions.

@Koovaps

Nice, I'm in a similar situation. Nothing makes you feel the wisdom of "a penny saved is a penny earned" more than Steam sale going by with no purchases.

I'm bummed that 3d Outrun is not part of the sale. Boo-hiss!!!

I was actually going to buy all of them, but since Sega feels this game is too good to be included in the 50% off sale, they get $0.00 from me. Sometimes these companies just rub me the wrong way. Oh well, I szve about $24.

@gamewizard65
Only the first wave of classics are on sale. A bunch that came out more recently like Outrun and Gunstar Heroes, are not on sale (yet). Might wanna grab those you're interested in while they are still on sale.

I guess I'll get Command?

@VofEscaflowne

That looks terrible!

...I mean, "EXACTLY like a tomato." What the heck! WOW.

I'm giving Partners in Time another shot, and it's more enjoyable than it was before...maybe because I know what I'm getting into.

Some of the writing is absolutely brilliant.
