It’s a pretty good week for Wii owners in Nintendo’s weekly download update, but then again any week is a good one when Double Dragon is involved.

DDII appears this week for the Wii’s Virtual Console and stars the Lee Bros once again as they quest to… oh forget it- they move from left to right punching/kicking dudes. That’s really all you have to know.

Over on the 3DS, things are a little more lacking. There’s a bunch of toss away puzzle games, a Sudoku title, and a cooking game that actually looks kind of fun. Order Up casts the player as a fry cook and uses the touch screen to add in a little chop-chop and simulated cooking. Kinda neat.

Then there’s also a video from Gym Class Heroes that features the story of a US gymnast as he works towards this Summer’s Olympics in London. I’d actually watch this but for GCH. Not a fan.
