One new 3D game leads this week's Nintendo Download!

eShop Exclusives
Samurai Sword Destiny
Swapnote (Nintendo, free)

DSiWare (also available on the eShop)
3 Heroes - Crystal Soul
(Circle Entertainment, 500 points/$4.99)
Quick Fill Q (Silver Star Japan, 200 points/$1.99)

Zombii Attack
(Motiviti, 500 points)


Note: I know Swapnote has been available for two weeks, but this is the first time Nintendo has advertised it in their Nintendo Download page, so I thought it should be included.

Why not sign up for a (free) account?
Oooh, Swapnote came out today!? I should download that!

EDIT: Also, the game on the eShop is Samurai SWORD, not Showdown.

Samurai Sword Destiny looks a bit like Muramasa from the brief trailer I just watched. Anyone know if its supposed to be good?

Based on that, it looks similar to Muramasa, but not nearly as polished. Though it could be my computer making it look sluggish...

UFO interactive? I thought it was Nintendo developed...

Oh its very much a poor mans Muramasa from what I see, its worth keeping an eye out for reviews though.

I did too. I actually had to edit that in the title when I re-read my source after watching the video.

I had that impression, too. This is much less promising.

Can't it be supervised by Nintendo? Like how Fluidity was created by Curve Studios but Nintendo was still involved.

We need to get to the bottom of this, pronto.

WAIT, THIS IS NOT THE SAME GAME AS THE ONE NINTENDO IS DEVELOPING. It's a very similar knock-off. Avoid this shit and wait for the real deal.

Oh, they almost had us. Intentional, you think?

Nice catch. Will update the OP to reflect this.
