Nintendo’s Cheap Digital Offerings


If you haven’t got a lot of cash to burn, this week Nintendo has put out a surprising amount of apps and downloads that are free or close to it. The company sent a release to TZ this morning highlighting these offerings….

Mewtwo DLC: If you bought Smash Bros. for both 3DS and Wii U, and registered them both before Club Nintendo went kaput, you can add Mewtwo to both games for free. Mewtwo will be able to do anything in the game the other characters can and he even has a set of trophies. If you don’t qualify for the free Mewtwo you can purchase him for a $4.99 package that includes both games.

amiibo Tap: Nintendo’s Greatest Bits: If you have a growing amiibo collection (against all odds), you’ll be able to use the ones you have to unlock and play random three-minute demos of games from that figure’s long history. So what happens if you use Shulk? I dunno….got a Shulk? This app will be released for Wii U on April 30.

Puzzles and Dragons Super Mario Bros. Edition Demo: Also coming April 30th to the eShop is a demo of the Mario-ified version of the square-arranging puzzler Puzzles and Dragons. If you plan to get the game, you have reason to download the demo, because any progress you make in it will be transferred to the full retail game when it’s released.

Mario Kart DLC Pack 2: And we can’t forget Mario Kart. Three new characters, eight new tracks and four new vehicles are yours when you drop $7.99 for the pack, or if you already purchased the full pass, the new content should be free. Every Mario Kart 8 player will get something new regardless when they apply the new update that adds the ultra-fast 200cc class.
