I hope you like racing, because that’s pretty much all there is to this week’s Nintendo Download.
Oh wait, no I’m sorry. That’s the wrong game. What we’ve got here for the Wii U this week though, is better than a trip to Daytona – it’s F-Zero X. Yes, the N64’s sequel to the SNES original is finally here for a whole new generation to enjoy. And for those of us who are dying for a sequel, well… you never know.
Remember that the launch of the Nintendo Switch will be officially detailed tonight. Is there a chance that there’s a surprise F-Zero title in there to talk about? Might this re-release of the N64 version be just to tempt and tease fans?! Sure! Is it likely? NOPE! Still though, I like to dream, and so dream on I shall…
Well, till we roll into and out of the Nintendo presser tonight anyway, with nary a hover-car in sight. Scroll down for the full listing of what’s in the Nintendo Download this week for the 3DS and Wii U.
This week’s Nintendo Download includes the following featured content:
- Virtual Console on Wii U
- F-Zero X – In this high-octane Nintendo 64 racer, choose from 30 different hover-car racers, including updated versions of the Blue Falcon and other vehicles from the original F-Zero game. With five separate play modes, hidden vehicles and courses, and an excellent soundtrack, F-Zero X is an all-time classic Nintendo racing experience.
Nintendo eShop sales:
- Nintendo eShop on Wii U and Nintendo 3DS
Also new this week:

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 Nintendo eShop on the Wii U console, the Nintendo 3DS family of systems and the Wii™ Shop Channel for the Wii console.
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 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™. Click here for details about the recent Nintendo DSi Shop service change.
Remember that Wii U, Wii, New Nintendo 3DS, New Nintendo 3DS XL, 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. Nintendo 3DS players who register a Nintendo Network ID gain access to free-to-start games and free game demos from Nintendo eShop, and also get the latest news and information direct from Nintendo.
