Freedom Planet Highlights this Week’s Nintendo Download

But it’s not the only thing worth checking out.  Smash Bros DLC, anyone?

The Nintendo Download for October 1st is in, and highlighting is Freedom Planet, a sonic-inspired platforming game that was a part of the [email protected] promotion.  I played the demo and enjoyed it, and am looking forward to saving 15 percent off my purchase.  NES classic River City Ransom is also available on Wii U’s Virtual Console, and sale highlights include Shin Megami Tensei IV (down to only $14.99) and Citizens of Earth.

Miiverse is playing host to a Happy Home Designer Drawing Sweepstakes, and there’s a new The Legend of Legacy theme available for download.

Beyond that, you can see for yourself below.

From Nintendo:

This week’s Nintendo Download includes the following featured content:

  • Nintendo eShop on Wii U and Nintendo 3DS
    • Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U – DLC – Fans of Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U can now add even more fun with a free update and new DLC for purchase on both versions. The free update includes a Duck Hunt stage for Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and the ability to upload match replay highlights to YouTube in the Wii U version of the game. In addition, players can now purchase new Mii Fighter costumes – like Fox (from the Star Foxseries) and Toad outfits – as well as a Pirate Ship stage for Super Smash Bros. for Wii U inspired by The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker and a Super Mario Maker stage for both versions of the game.

  • Nintendo eShop on Wii U
    • Freedom Planet – Fight your way across the celestial world of Avalice, where cats are green, motorcycles drive up walls and monster girls do most of the butt kicking! Freedom Planet is a cartoony, combat-based platform adventure that pits a spunky dragonoid and her friends against an alien attack force. If you downloaded the demo during the limited-time [email protected] promotion, you can save 15 percent off your purchase of Freedom Planet until Nov 1. Click here to view a trailer for the game.
    • Toto Temple Deluxe – Toto Temple Deluxe is a fast-paced, local-multiplayer king-of-the-hill style game, in which players must steal an egg-laying goat from their friends and try to keep it on their own head for as long as possible. You know, normal stuff. Be the first to grab the explosive goat and keep it long enough for it to detonate near your soon-to-be-dead rivals. Lose the goat and the timer resets. Play as teams or in free-for-all. Click here to watch a trailer for the game.
  • Virtual Console on Wii U
    • River City Ransom – In this much-loved NES classic, free River City from the clutches of Slick and his underlings. Battle it out on the streets solo or with a friend.
