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

Nintendo eShop on Wii U

Tadpole Treble
– Get ready for a creative adventure as you swim through sheet music and avoid the notes of the game’s catchy soundtrack. Along the way, you’ll encounter massive bosses, fully sung songs and plenty of unlockables, as well as an intuitive full stage/song creation mode using the Wii U GamePad controller.

Virtual Console on Wii U

Wave Race 64
– Choose one of four characters, each with his or her own unique abilities and style, and master the game’s excellent controls. Make your way through nine courses, each with its own challenges. Take a break from racing to try the Stunt Mode. Polish your skills pulling off handstands, rolls and flips.

Nintendo eShop on Nintendo 3DS

Disney Art Academy – Demo Version
– In the full version of the game, players can discover their inner artists to capture the stunning visuals of over 80 Disney and Pixar characters. With advice and lessons inspired by Disney art and Pixar animations, they learn to use a bundle of different drawing tools to create Elsa and Olaf from Disney Frozen, characters from Disney Inside Out, or characters like Mickey Mouse. They can even share their creations with their friends. The demo version gives players access to two lessons to try out: Mickey Mouse and Olaf from Disney Frozen. Game and demo in 2D

Virtual Console on New Nintendo 3DS

Mega Man X
– Hundreds of years after his death, Dr. Light’s final creation is discovered. Now, the future lies on the brink of destruction and X must use all of his newfound powers and abilities to hunt down the maverick Reploids and their leader, Sigma, before the human race is wiped from the planet.

Wii Retail Download

Mario Sports Mix
– The game presents four familiar sports – hockey, basketball, volleyball, dodgeball – but with a Mario twist. Players can choose from a variety of playable Mushroom Kingdom characters or play as their own Mii characters. In any sport, power-ups can turn the tide of a game in an instant. And in over-the-top Mario sports fashion, each character can unleash a special move.

Tadpole Treble and Wave Race 64, eh? I wonder if there's potential for a crossover there...

Haha, you're familiar with your stuff! Yeah, we had to tweak a few terminologies to make it pass.

I don't see the SEGA sale. Where is it?

There are certain ways that you're required to refer to certain Nintendo stuff in official promotional material and in-game. Not supposed to talk too much about it, but some of the rules are fairly easy to derive from paying close attention anyway. Like, you'll almost never hear Reggie just say "3DS" unless he's being really casual. It's called "Nintendo 3DS." Whereas you would never say "Nintendo Wii U," that's just called "Wii U."

@nate38 I'm definitely going to get Streets of Rage 1 and 2 and Gunstar Heroes. I'm not sure if I'll get anything else. I'll have to think about some of the others.
