Nintendo Downloads Weekly Update
3D Classics Kirby's AdventureYeah, you probably won’t want to bother heading to the online shop on your Wii, DS or 3DS today. Trust me. As someone who’s been covering Nintendo Downloads updates for a long time, I know when we’ve got a bad one. And this week’s update just so happens to be worth skipping. I mean, when the only “gem” is a 3D update of an NES game that’s probably cheaper and better in it’s Virtual Console or in its GBA form as Kirby: Nightmare in Dreamland.

Still, if you decide to change your mind, there are four games to look at today. There’s the aforementioned 3DS 3D Classic version of Kirby’s Adventure, Escape Trick: Convenience Store (DSi, 3DS) and two edutainment games called Pinoccio’s Puzzles (Wii) and Play & Learn Chinese (DSi, 3DS).

Gamertell’s Nintendo Download pick for the week is 3D Classics: Kirby’s Adventure (3DS), even if it already has appeared on the NES, GB, GBA and Wii..
