Hot on the heels of E3, the latest Nintendo Download is jam packed with trailers and a very cool download in the form of the LEGO Batman 2 demo.

Batman 2, in case you don’t know, should just probably just have been titled LEGO Justice League since it features all the characters you know and love from the DC Universe (LEGO Aquaman!). The demo allows play through the entire first level of the game and grants access to a few fave heroes. Well worth a look…

And since E3 was just this week, Nintendo also has a bunch of trailers for your viewing pleasure up for the D-L. Despite the fact that there wasn’t really anything ‘new’ shown off (that wasn’t already expected) at the show, there are some pretty fantastic looking titles coming in the second half of this year- check out most of what’s good in the Nintendo Video section of the eShop.

There’s a few other goodies this week as well (including the token Wii game), so get to clicking boys’n’girls.

  • The Last Blade – 900 points —  Originally released in 1997, The Last Blade is a fighting game set in the “Bakumatsu” period of Japanese history, where 10-plus swordsmen are fighting for different purposes. The game is similar to its predecessors from the Samurai Showdown series released by the same company, but it differs in allowing players to choose between two sword types; the damage-focused “Power” or “Speed,” which promotes speedy play. Other game elements include maneuvers like “Repel,” which allows players to deflect enemy attacks, and “Sublime Slash,” which cancels “Super Slice” and can be combined with “Super Secret Slice.” Don’t miss out on powerful -moves like “Super Secret Slice” and “Hidden Secret Slice.”

  • I really enjoyed the LEGO Batman 2 demo. It sort of sold me on that game, but then again I have not played many LEGO titles so I have no signs of burnout on them. Also, I don't know of a release date for the game. Is it coming out the same day as the other versions?

  • Yep, the 3DS version launches on the 19th in the US – same as all the others. Of course depending on what territory you're in, that might change.

    For the record, I am burned out on them- but playing as a Lego Justice League is an offer I can't refuse. I'll probably end up with Lord of the Rings too. 

  • I'm in US, so thank you! I might get it since there is quite a lull in releases and the only thing that bothered me in the demo was the stiff combat.
