Getting ready for the holidays? Why not pick up some downloadable surprises for your loved ones, or perhaps as a self-reward? Potential candidates for such treats are listed below:
Wii U Virtual Console
Advance Wars: Dual Strike – $9.99
Okay, so maybe Advance Wars won’t be coming back anytime soon, but you can relive the good ol’ days by playing the series’ first DS iteration. Set within the same continuity as its GBA predecessors, Advance Wars: Dual Strike is just as addictive and provides hours upon hours of strategy. Perfect for huddling up with a warm blanket!
Super Mario Maker for Nintendo 3DS – $39.99 (available Friday)
A port of last year’s Mario level creator for Wii U, this version is designed around a local experience. While you unfortunately can’t share levels online, you can share them with friends via wireless trade or StreetPass. If that’s not enough for you, how about 100 new levels designed by Nintendo’s Mario team? It’s a Christmas Miracle!
The Legend of Zelda 30th Anniversary – 300 Platinum Points (available now)
Good news for those looking after their My Nintendo accounts: a number of Zelda-themed rewards were released today. There’s the lovely Zelda 30th Anniversary theme avaliable, for starters, but there’s also an additional three orchestral videos featuring Zelda music, each costing 100 Platinum Points. You can find the rewards here.
Do any of these look like appealing holiday gifts? Let us know in the comments below!
