Nintendo News: Nintendo Download Highlights New Digital Content for Nintendo Systems

REDMOND, Wash.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–This week’s Nintendo Download includes the following featured content:


  • Virtual Console on Wii U

    • Hogan’s
      Alley
      – Use your split-second reflexes and
      sharp-shooting skills in the practice shooting range. Use the Wii
      Remote controller to aim and shoot at the old-timey gangsters as
      they turn, while avoiding the innocent bystanders. Or in another
      mode, shoot cans and keep them in the air until they reach the
      platforms.
    • The
      Adventures of Bayou Billy
      – Godfather Gordon has
      stolen sweet Annabelle Lane. But Bayou Billy won’t rest until his
      girlfriend is back home safe – even if he has to wrestle
      crocodiles, beat up Gordon’s goons and endure a shootout! You can
      even play shootout scenes with the Wii Remote controller.
    • Wild
      Gunman
      – Go back in time or relive it in today’s
      future with the classic Wild West shootout of Wild Gunman.
      Keep your hand steady on the Wii Remote controller and get the
      outlaw before he gets you. If you think you can win the battle
      against one outlaw, try winning against all of his friends.

Also new this week:

In addition to video games available at retail stores, Nintendo also
offers a variety of content that people can download directly to their
systems. Nintendo adds new games weekly to the Nintendo eShop on the Wii
U console and the Nintendo 3DS family of systems, the Nintendo DSi
Shop for the Nintendo DSi system and the Wii Shop Channel
for the Wii console. The Nintendo eShop is a cash-based service that
features a wide variety of content, including new and classic games,
applications and demos. Users can add money to their account balances by
using a credit card or purchasing a Nintendo eShop Card at a retail
store and entering the code from the card. All funds from one card must
be loaded in the Nintendo eShop on either Wii U or the Nintendo 3DS
family of systems, but can be used in either Nintendo eShop if the
systems are linked to a single Nintendo Network account.

The
Wii Shop Channel offers games and applications and uses Wii Points,
which can be purchased via the Wii Shop Channel. The Nintendo DSi Shop
offers games and applications and uses Nintendo DSi Points,
which can be purchased in the Nintendo DSi Shop.

Remember
that Wii U, Wii, Nintendo 3DS, Nintendo 3DS XL, Nintendo 2DS and
Nintendo DSi feature parental controls that let adults manage some of
the content their children can access. For more information about this
and other features, visit http://www.nintendo.com/wiiu
