Nintendo Download 4/7

Preload Star Fox Zero, or enjoy Game & Watch Gallery 4. There’s not much else to see this week.

The wait for Starfox Zero may not have gotten longer, but it’ll sure feel like it after a week like this. You can now preload the game if you purchase the digital version via the Nintendo eShop, so that it can sit on your menu screen and tantalize you until the 22nd.

Game & Watch Gallery 4 also releases this week, and includes both Classic and Modern variants Game & Watch titles of yore.

Otherwise, try and enjoy games like Epic Dumpster Bear, Emojikara: A Clever Emoji Match Game, SUPER ROBO MOUSE, or Doll Fashion Atelier.
Or jump on the Nintendo eShop Spring Sale, where digital versions of an abundance of titles are available for a reduced price. Highlights include Zero Escape: Virtue’s Last reward (down to $11.99), DuckTales Remastered (down to $4.99), Inazuma Eleven ($13.99), or, if you’ve somehow missed it until now, Mario Kart 8 for $41.99.

In addition to video games available at retail stores, Nintendo also offers a variety of content that people can download directly to their systems. Nintendo adds new games weekly to the Nintendo eShop on the Wii U console and the Nintendo 3DS family of systems, the Nintendo DSi Shop for the Nintendo DSi system and the Wii Shop Channel for the Wii console.

The Nintendo eShop is a cash-based service that features a wide variety of content, including new and classic games, applications and demos. Users can add money to their account balances by using a credit card or purchasing a Nintendo eShop Card at a retail store and entering the code from the card. All funds from one card must be loaded in the Nintendo eShop on either Wii U or the Nintendo 3DS family of systems, but can be used in either Nintendo eShop if the systems are linked to a single Nintendo Network account.

The Wii Shop Channel offers games and applications and uses Wii Points, which can be purchased via the Wii Shop Channel. The Nintendo DSi Shop offers games and applications and uses Nintendo DSi Points, which can be purchased in the Nintendo DSi Shop.

Remember that Wii U, Wii, Nintendo 3DS, Nintendo 3DS XL, Nintendo 2DS and Nintendo DSi feature parental controls that let adults manage some of the content their children can access.
