Good morning Nintendo system owners, and welcome to yet another Nintendo downloads update. Actually, if you own a Wii or Wii U, you should probably call it a day and head off. There are no downloadable exclusives for you today. This week is all about the 3DS and DSi. There are three new 3DS exclusives and two new DSiWare games. Best of all, one of those exclusives is XSEED’s Unchained Blades, a dungeon-crawling RPG with turn-based battles and characters based on mythical creatures. (I’ve played it on the PSP – it’s good.)

Gamertell’s Nintendo Downloads pick for the week is Unchained Blades (3DS).

3DS eShop

Air Battle Hockey 3D
Price: $4.99
Genre: Sports
ESRB Rating: “Everyone”
Players: 1-2
Description: You have to hit balls into opponents goals, using various skills and targets to try and be the first to earn 10 points.

Gunman Clive
Price: $1.99
Genre: Action
ESRB Rating: “Everyone 10+”
Players: 1
Description: Despite its cheap price and generic name, Gunman Clive doesn’t sound that bad. You help Clive save the mayor’s kidnapped daughter by going through levels, jumping over obstacles and shooting down enemies. It looks really neat, as it all appears hand-drawn.

Unchained Blades

Genre: RPG
ESRB Rating: “Teen”
Players: 1
Description: Fang the Dragon Emperor appeared before the Goddess Clunea, who will give people who reach her one wish, and demanded she bring the strongest person in existance before him so he can fight that person and prove he’s even better. He was a real jerk about it, so Clunea decided to teach him some humilty. She transformed him back to his child-state (which looks like a human) and tossed him back down to the world below again. So Fang sets off to go and face Clunea again, and is joined by other mythical creatures, many of whom also look kinda human, who also have wishes and want to see Clunea to have them granted.
