Nintendo Downloads - December 29, 2016
« on: December 29, 2016, 01:17:07 AM »

The year ends with a second chance and the author's mom staying up until 4am.

The last week of the year has a couple of North American retro releases, but not much else. The Wii U Virtual Console finally gets Mario Kart 64, which is upgrade eligible for the many people who bought it on Wii, and hopefully the upgrade works right from update time. In the realm of the New 3DS, it's another chance for Castlevania Dracula X following its aborted upload last week.

Europe has a couple of anime episodes and a whole lot of sales to dig through this week. Among the highlights are Pokkén Tournament's first sale, BOXBOXBOY, and a whole boatload of Mario games.

Have a happy New Year, and be careful on the roads if travelling on Saturday night - we want you all back for 2017.
