This week, the Nintendo Download is mostly sleepy, but after several weeks of megaton releases, it’s earned the rest. The new offerings this week aren’t much, but they’re something. Most notable among them is the 3DS Virtual Console release of Mystical Ninja for SNES, the first US appearance of Goemon (here called Kid Ying).

The obscure NES gale Flying Dragon: The Secret Scroll is also being offered this week. For a couple more games and sales, Nintendo’s press release lies below.

REDMOND, Wash.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–This week’s Nintendo Download includes the following featured content:
