This week in the Nintendo Download, The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass has been added to the Wii U eShop! If you enjoyed Wind Waker (and who didn’t like Wind Waker) there’s more, provided you’re okay with pixely visuals. Originally created for the Nintendo DS, you can now search for the Phantom Hourglass on your TV.
In other news, apparently it took this long for the Wii U to get its own version of Super Meat Boy. This game has been out for a long time, but it’s still solid — and still mega-tough. The Super Mario Mash-Up Pack for Minecraft on Wii U is also out now, and Fire Emblem Fates has a couple of new maps.
