NintendoWare Weekly: 3D Classics: Kid Icarus

For the second week in a row, there's nothing new to download on Wii. No WiiWare, no Virtual Console, not even a demo. Troubling!

Meanwhile, on 3DS, the highlighted game is something that's actually been available at GameStop for almost a month, and elsewhere as a pre-order bonus: 3D Classics Kid Icarus. If you didn't think the 3DS game was bizarre enough, you should check out this nicely updated version of the NES original to see how weird Nintendo can get.

Nintendo would also like you to know that a new season of Dinosaur Office will premiere on Nintendo Video tomorrow.
