The Nintendo Download touts some full retail releases

2 mins read

The name of the game this week on the Nintendo Download is full on, retail games. Stuff like Mario Kart 7, Starfox 64, and Ocarina of Time 3D are all now posted for download.

It’s nice to see Nintendo getting the eShop up to date with some of the biggest games on the 3DS, even nicer of course would be if they were doing day and date. But we’ll go one step at a time here since Nintendo has never been all that big on ‘online’ anything and even this is a big jump for the company.

There isn’t too much else that’s too memorable in this week’s offerings… unless you count Gradius that is.
