This week in the Nintendo Download, The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD is officially available as of tomorrow! Though it may not be the greatest Zelda of all time, it’s still a good game, and it’s the only one with Midna in it. If you can find the limited edition physical package with the badass Wolf Link amiibo, go for it.
On the other side of things, Virtual Console now has Pac-Man 2: The New Adventures! If you want to know just how embarrassing a “new” take on a game can get, look no further than this painful chapter in Pac-Man’s history. You don’t control the game so much as watch Pac-Man aimlessly flail around — and I’m not kidding.
For the full list of additions and deals, see Nintendo’s press release below.
