Nintendo Download

This week in the Nintendo Download, it looks like we’re back to improving the N64 library (about time, I say). Last week Ocarina of Time made its late debut, and this week we get Mario Tennis, which was released in 2000 and introduced Waluigi, as well as re-introduced Princess Daisy.

The eShop’s Epic Indie Sale should save you some big cash while supporting small development teams: if you buy one game in the sale, all others you buy will cost 60% less. The sale lasts until 9 in the morning on July 23.

Camp Miiverse is a light competition involving three games: Splatoon, Mario Kart 8 and Animal Crossing: New Leaf. Each day the opposing teams of Team Yoshi and Team Toad will post requirements for those games. If those requirements are beaten, you simply post a screenshot of the results to Miiverse along with the hashtag of your team. The results will be tallied up eventually and a winning team will be chosen.

There are plenty of other offerings too; see Nintendo’s press release below for more of them.

In addition to video games available at retail stores, Nintendo also offers a variety of content that people can download directly to their systems. Nintendo adds new games weekly to the Nintendo eShop on the Wii U console and the Nintendo 3DS family of systems, the Nintendo DSi Shop for the Nintendo DSi system and the Wii Shop Channel for the Wii console.

The Nintendo eShop is a cash-based service that features a wide variety of content, including new and classic games, applications and demos. Users can add money to their account balances by using a credit card or purchasing a Nintendo eShop Card at a retail store and entering the code from the card. All funds from one card must be loaded in the Nintendo eShop on either Wii U or the Nintendo 3DS family of systems, but can be used in either Nintendo eShop if the systems are linked to a single Nintendo Network account.

The Wii Shop Channel offers games and applications and uses Wii Points, which can be purchased via the Wii Shop Channel. The Nintendo DSi Shop offers games and applications and uses Nintendo DSi Points, which can be purchased in the Nintendo DSi Shop.

Remember that Wii U, Wii, Nintendo 3DS, Nintendo 3DS XL, Nintendo 2DS and Nintendo DSi feature parental controls that let adults manage some of the content their children can access.
