NintendoWare Weekly: Netflix, Game & Watch Gallery, 3D Pixel Racing


The biggest release on 3DS this week isn't a game at all. It's the Netflix app! Should you decide to watch movies while you're near a Wi-Fi signal but not a TV and a streaming-capable device, now you're all set.

The 3DS also sees a pair of Virtual Console releases, including one that is, itself, a collection of even older games. And WiiWare hosts 3D Pixel Racing, a racer set in a 3D Dot Game Heroes-esque voxel environment.


  • 3D Pixel Racing (Microforum, 1-4 players, 500 Wii Points): Race in a world of big, chunky voxels.
