This week in the Nintendo Download, Dr. Mario is back, but if you think it’s the same old game you’ve already bought, you’re in for some surprises. Dr. Mario: Miracle Cure mixes it up with new items like the namesake Miracle Cures that have the firepower to take out multiple viruses at once. You can also play in Classic Mode if that’s what you want, or you can try Dr. Luigi which is also included.

Jurassic World will arrive in theaters tomorrow, but in the fastest movie-to-Lego turnaround yet, you can play a Lego-fied version of the movie TODAY. Lego Jurassic World contains Lego Chris Pratt and all the thrills of the new movie in brick form.

The Virtual Console gets a new GBA title, Harvest Moon: Friends of Mineral Town. Grow a farm, raise livestock and woo the girl of your choice (if you’re waiting for Harvest Moon 64, Natsume sadly has no plans to rerelease it again). See Nintendo’s press release below for the full list of offerings this week.
