The Denpa Men: They Came By Wave is a new dungeon RPG by Genius Sonority, in which you use augmented reality-type exploration to find little guys in the environment, who then form your party. It's cute, quirky, and available on the 3DS eShop today. There's a demo if you'd like to try it out. Also o...

The SNES version of Prince of Persia arrives on the Virtual Console in North America. We'd forgotten this was happening in the interim between the December ESRB rating and today, so this is, like every Wii Virtual Console release, a pleasant and unexpected surprise. Speaking of surprises, DSiWare's...

It's a quiet week on Nintendo platforms (except, of course, for last Sunday's New Super Mario Bros. 2 launch), with just one new game per platform. Wii Virtual Console fans can rescue hostages and blow up everything that isn't a hostage in Metal Slug X; 3DS owners get to see through the track in Ve...

This week is fairly light on content, with one new Virtual Console game on Wii (another Neo Geo fighter) and one new game on 3DS eShop (Touch Battle Tank 3D, an abstract-looking top-down tank shooting game). A couple of deals are available that might be worth knowing about: Hulu Plus on Wii offers ...

The 3DS eShop has calmed down significantly after a few weeks of overflowing bounty, offering a single original game for download this week, 3D Solitaire. There is good news for people looking for a deal on previously released material, as the "Month of Mario" knocks a dollar off the price of Super...

Once again, the 3DS eShop is rich with content, including the 8 Bit Summer releases of Wario Land and Mole Mania, the latter being a somewhat under-the-radar puzzle game designed by Shigeru Miyamoto and a small team. There's also the fascinating Dot Runner: Complete Edition, a new game that mashes ...

The "Summer of 8 Bit" begins with two downloadable 3DS releases of NES games that were, until now, exclusive to "Ambassadors:" The Legend of Zelda and NES Open Tournament Golf. Each game will get eShop release updates, such as save states (Ambassadors can update their existing games). Also availabl...

This is not just a great week for the 3DS eShop, but it's an important one. Last weekend, Nintendo discounted Super Mario Land temporarily; this weekend's sale on VVVVVV proves that these limited-time discounts are an actual thing. For a digital Nintendo platform, two sales is a giant leap forward....

The NES classic Double Dragon 2 unexpectedly shows up on Wii today, in an otherwise portable-heavy week. Today's 3DS releases include the popular Order Up!!, and a series of "Slitherlink" math puzzles. Normally, we don't give too much attention to the kids' stuff on DSiWare, but we feel compelled t...

It's a surprisingly packed week for downloads on DSi, 3DS, and Wii. There's a Wii Virtual Console game (and a good one, Mega Man X2!), an NES game for 3DS, a port of the classic FMV shooter Mad Dog McCree, and even a demo for an upcoming release....

Ubisoft's widespread digital Rayman assault continues with ... no, not Rayman Origins on the 3DS eShop, but the Game Boy Color Rayman. It's accompanied by the demo for the upcoming eShop release of Order Up! and a DSiWare game about dodging hazards and slowing down time. This week on Wii ... someth...

If you're looking for stuff to download for your Wii, just move along. There's nothing this week. But on 3DS, Kirby's Block Ball brings classic mascot-based ... Breakout? And today is finally your opportunity to play Rayman Origins on 3DS. At least, in demo form. There's still no release date for t...

While we wait for Sega's "Monster World Collection" to debut the previously Japan-only (and acclaimed!) Monster World IV on PSN and XBLA, Sega went ahead and deposited the game on Wii Virtual Console today, causing even more surprise than other, increasingly rare, VC releases. If you have the Wii P...

Two new Virtual Console games in as many weeks? What is going on? On top of the VC release of Super Hang-On, Amoebattle makes its way to DSiWare and Bird Mania 3D takes flight on the 3DS eShop. We rather liked the iPhone version of Amoebattle. Its real-time strategy controls should translate to the...

Cave Story+, an updated and 3D version of indie classic Cave Story, is slated to hit the 3DS eShop "in a month or so," developer and Nicalis CEO Tyrone Rodriguez told Destructoid. Cave Story+ is a remade, separate game from DSiWare's Cave Story 3D, not an update, meaning even those who own Cave Sto...
