The animal kingdom dominates this week's Nintendo Downloads.

Well, this sure is a big change from the single DSiWare title we knew about. All the download services are getting some love today, starting with the Wii U eShop and its ZombiU and NBA 2K13 demos. 3DS eShop is no slouch with Hello Kitty Picnic with Sanrio Friends, Reel Fishing 3D Paradise Mini, and 101 Dino Pets 3D. Capping things off is the Wii Virtual Console getting another fighter in the form of World Heroes 2.

Get ready for a head trip. Biorhythms are used to predict various aspects of one's life, chief among them, one's physical, emotional, and intellectual well being.

Plan the date for one where your physicality is at it's strongest. Need to break up with your latest girlfriend? Pick one of your less emotional days; save those tears for when you watch Rainman again. This DSiWare title can even gauge the compatibility with your partner, and there's even a genuine video game locked away in there. Now you too can own what top scientists have deemed "pseudoscience."

Wii Virtual Console:

World Heroes 2 - 900 Points

Grab those Mad Catz and plug in that Hori, folks, because it's fightin' time on the Wii! Originally released to arcades in 1993, World Heroes 2 boasts a roster of 14 characters (six of which are fresh faces) and a unique mode known Death Match. In addition to the standard best of three mode, Death Match uses an arrow within the player's health bar to depict the tide of war. As a player takes damage, the arrow moves down the health bar. If it reaches the end, the player must mash buttons to keep their player on their toes lest they lose to a 10-count and face elimination.
