5 mins read

Ever wondered what olympians would look like as LEGO’s? Now there’s a Nintendo Video that answers that burning question.

Yes dear friends, thanks to the miracles of modern technology and the Nintendo 3DS, we can finally reveal what the Olympic Games would look like if they were held in LEGOLand.

And if, for some reason, that doesn’t float your boat (and it is a very particular boat to float) there’s also a dose of Hulu’s new Family Section to be downloaded onto your Wii console. Yes, the Wii. What do you mean nobody uses the Wii anymore? That’s incendiary talk mister! Why there’s even a new Virtual Console game up for download this week! It’s none other than that arcade classic, Real Bout Fatal Fury Special. See- There’s still stuff to do on the Wii while we gear up for the Wii U’s launch in… uh…

Look- more video!

Although this is one you’ll probably actually want to watch. Nintendo Video gives viewers a sneak peek at New Super Mario Bros 2’sWarp Cannon course, which sounds really neat. And while we’re on the subject of small, Italian plumbers from Brooklyn- a Month of Mario continues on with a solid deal on Mario Land 2: Six Golden Coins, it’s only $3 USD this week. A GameBoy classic that’s well worth that price tag.



  • Touch Battle Tank – $4.99 — In Touch Battle Tank 3D, it’s you on a solo mission against a nearly unstoppable army of killer tanks. Your strategy – keep the action going and the shells flying! Command either a powerfully armored engine of destruction or a light, agile hit-and-run variety of menacing machines capable of unleashing incredible firepower!


  • 3D Sports Highlights — Don’t miss the pageantry and passion of this summer’s biggest sporting events in stop-motion 3D. Nintendo Video is delivering highlight after highlight, so tune in to catch your favorite events.
  • New Super Mario Bros 2: Warp Cannon course videoTo give players a special look at some of the courses in New Super Mario Bros. 2, a series of videos are being released in the Nintendo eShop. The second video highlighting one of the Warp Cannon courses is now available. When Mario gets blasted from a huge cannon in this special course, he sprints automatically toward the goal. In order to succeed, all players need to do is jump. Sounds easy, right?

A Month of Mario

  • Mario Land 2: Six Golden Coins – $2.99 — Mario faces off against his evil rival Wario in this week’s featured “Month of Mario” game. Starting today through Wednesday, Aug. 15, Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins is available at a discounted price of $2.99.




Virtual Console

  • Real Bout Fatal Fury Special – 900 points — Originally released in 1997, this fighting game is the sixth installment in the Fatal Fury series. With a system based on previous games in the series, the game introduced a more evolved two-line battle, improved the power gauge system and abolished the ring out system. These and other changes allow for greater strategic diversity. In addition to the 15 characters featured in previous games (Excluding Geese), this game includes Tung Fu Rue, Cheng Sinzan, Laurence Blood and Wolfgang Krauser for a roster of 19 characters, all truly suited to the name Special. They’ll duke it out here to see who will come out on top as the strongest.


  • Hulu plus — Enjoy the new Hulu Plus Family Section exclusively on the Wii console. Watch favorites like BratzCaillou,Dragon Ball Z and more. The limited time offer is valid Friday, Aug. 10, through Sunday, Sept 23.
