Nintendo Download - 06/16/2011

The first Nintendo Download that includes the 3DS eShop brings some heavy hitting titles.

Now appearing each Thursday, the weekly Nintendo Download update now includes entries to the new eShop found on the 3DS. Being the first week of the new format, Nintendo has made some tweaks to their format and have released some significant titles to make a big splash this week. Donkey Kong, originally released on the Gameboy has made its way to the 3DS Virtual Console for $3.99, while Mega Man 5 from the NES is now available on the Wii's Virtual Console. Gaijin Games' final Bit.Trip game, Bit.Trip Flux, can be demoed on WiiWare for a limited time. For more information on Bit.Trip Flux, be sure to read our review on the game.

Alongside this list of games, are a secondary set, not highlighted in the Nintendo press release. These include Gold Fever, Zimo: Mahjong Fanatic, Hidden Photo, and Beach Party Craze for DSiWare and the eShop, and Snail Mail for WiiWare.

In this episode we talk about some of our favorite memories of game related gifts. We go heavy on Ghost of Tsushima, and we squash the PixlBit beef over Donkey Kong Country 2 and Donkey Kong Tropical Freeze.
