    Why not sign up for a (free) account and create your own content?
    I've heard good things about that Sword of Hope II game. Maybe I should look into it...

    I was editing it in as you posted (posted the OP from home to get the Theatrhythm DLC on the list).

    There's actually a good bit of content this week for the second week in a row...eight downloads plus a sale item and four DLC items. Not bad, Nintendo. Not bad.

    I figured you were, which is why I didn't attempt editing it myself!

    Supposedly Johnny Kung Fu is pretty poor, but at least Pinball Land is good and I have some hopes for... oops, unplanned pun... Sword of Hope 2.

    edit - And of course, anyone who doesn't already have Mighty Switch Force should buy that shit immediately.

    At long last another Neo Geo fighting game!

    But yea, ok, you win, Nintendo. I'll make my first eShop purchase and buy Mighty Switch Force this weekend.

    $2.99 is an awesome deal for Mighty Switch Force!. Totally worth it at that price, especially after the update.

    I might check out Sword of Hope II. I already have Kirby's Pinball Land on cart, and I'm not a huge fan so I'll skip that.'

    I love that Nintendo is finally stepping their game up on the eShop.

    New FF Theathrythm DLC. Yeah! Can't wait to try them out.

    Never played Might Switch Force and I have $8.95 sitting in my eShop wallet. Is this a good deal!?

    Absolutely! Have you played any of WayForward's eShop or DSiWare offerings (or Shantae or A Boy and His Blob)? Great sprite animation, fun music, and frantic gameplay. Get it!

    Holy crap, $3 for Mighty Switch Force?!?

    Whoever doesn't buy Mighty Switch Force for $2.99 (50% off) must hate video games.

    Kirby's Pinball Land will be mine! By the way Gui, I passed your pro score in ZP3D

    Ace Mathician could be good, I've heard some good things about it.

    I'm curious about that one as well. It's by Hugo Smits, the guy who did Flipper 2, so...could be interesting?

    I don't remember having Mighty Switch Force. I'll buy this as well.

    Did you like Flipper 2? It wasn't exactly was I was expecting...

    Frogger: Hyper Arcade Edition came out a week ago on the 360. I downloaded the demo but haven't tried it yet. Hopefully it's good; I tend to like the Frogger games; even widely-disliked ones like the 3D game for PC/Playstation.

    The Somnus song for Theatrhythm is from FF Versus XIII, right? I was confused for a bit, thinking it was a song used in every game that I wasn't aware of but doing a quick search for it brought this up:

    I'm not sure if this counts as "download" stuff, but it's worth noting all the Yoshi stuff available now in Mario Tennis Open:

    New Playable Character: White Yoshi
    New Playable Character: Black Yoshi
    New Playable Character: Light Blue Yoshi
    New Playable Character: Yellow Yoshi
    New Playable Character: Blue Yoshi
    New Playable Character: Red Yoshi
    New Playable Character: Pink Yoshi

    New Costume Available: Yoshi Costume

    You have to go to mariotennisopen.com and scan the QR codes there to unlock all the Yoshis. Does that count as DLC? Or something else?

    Eh, I'm not counting it since it's not readily available...you have to dig up the QR Code from an outside source. The Theatrhythm DLC is available in-game.

    Yeah, that makes sense. I can dig it.

    I'll just throw in that info just in case anyone missed it. (check your SwapNotes, people!)

    I'm wondering if I should include it though, since Nintendo doesn't mention it in their presser. With one game, it's easy to list DLC, but for multiple games with no notice from Nintendo, that would take a lot of digging to find them...


    Ah okay. Well, I just wrote it out as it was in Theatrhythm.


    Never tried it, unfortunately, but I liked the art style and the concept.
