Nintendo Downloads - October 6, 2016

This is one week of releases that's hardly paper-thin.

As one would expect, the biggest release of the week for most major territories (read: everything but Japan) is Paper Mario: Color Splash. Matt loved the game's humor, while I'm still finding my way through thanks to The Great Preload Mess-Up Of 2016 running it two weeks ahead of schedule for me. And as the last Nintendo-published Wii U exclusive unless something stunning gets pulled out in the next couple of weeks, it marks the sad end of an era.

Other than Color Splash, North American eShoppers also have an interesting Kickstarted title - Ninja Pizza Girl. It's the odd combination of action platforming and food delivery that really sells it. In the Virtual Console space, the Wii U gets to marching with Mario vs Donkey Kong, while I have to ask if you can handle another Mega Man game on New 3DS. (Since the game in question is Mega Man X2, the answer is of course SHO-RYU-KEN.)

The European shops get a twin bill from the plumber this week, as Mario Party: Star Rush crashes into the 3DS along with a companion app that eliminates the need for Download Play for the title. Daan's review has the lowdown for you. Capcom is also bringing the ruckus on the New 3DS VC in Europe, as the two Super Nintendo Breath of Fire titles release with a decent deal.

Chase discount, nice. This is a good time to use gold coins for the first time. Its a good thing I have 20 of them.

It seems strange that the offer is up now when the game doesnt come out for another week.

Mop it upOctober 07, 2016

Chinese Mythology pack? Weren't there going to be other Nintendo themes for Minecraft? Or was it always just going to be the Mario one?
