Nintendo Downloads Weekly Update

This is one of the best Mondays to happen since I started doing the Nintendo Downloads update. Seriously! Princess Tomato in the Salad Kingdom is a Virtual Console game now! I can not believe it! I think I’m going to have to go against my rule of not buying Virtual Console games I already own for this one!

What else has been added to the Wii Shop Channel and DSi Shop? Oh, right, there were other games added too. Four new WiiWare games and five new DSiWare games have also been added this week, among them the anticipated and slightly weird Tomena Sanner (WiiWare), as well as Blaster Master Overdrive (WiiWare).

Gamertell’s Nintendo Download picks for the week are Princess Tomato in the Salad Kingdom (Virtual Console), Tomena Sanner (WiiWare), Blaster Master Overdrive (WiiWare) and Link ‘n’ Launch (DSiWare).

WiiWare

Blaster Master Overdrive

Hubert the Teddy Bear Winter Games

ESRB Rating: “Everyone” for Comic Mischief
Players: 1-16
Description: A multiplayer sports game where you create your own teddy bear then play through eight different games to show you’re better than the bunnies or up to 15 of your friends. Seems like it would have been better if this came out before Christmas, since one of the “events” is Christmas tree decorating.

Tomena Sanner
Price: 500 Nintendo Points / $5
Publisher: Konami
Genre: Action
ESRB Rating: “Everyone” for Comic Mischief and Mild Cartoon Violence
Players: 1-4

Virtual Console

Princess Tomato in the Salad Kingdom
