Swords, Puzzles, Dragons and Soldiers In This Week’s Nintendo Download

This week in the Nintendo Download, The Puzzle and Dragons combo pack has arrived at the eShop. For $29.99 you get Puzzle & Dragons Z plus a second Puzzle & Dragons starring Mario and everything that has to do with Mario. Don’t forget if you’re skeptical about how casual the game looks, you can try before you buy by downloading the demo.

There’s also Swords and Soldiers II for Wii U. The original Wii game received critical praise, and now the HD sequel is here to provide hours of strategy-based gameplay illustrated with awesome 2D-animated art.

Also, Bombing Bastards is 28% off, and I wanted to put this name in the title so badly, but I doubt the management would go for it. See the full details in Nintendo’s press release below.
