This week’s Nintendo Download includes the following featured content:
Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and Nintendo 3DS DLC – Bayonetta from the Bayonetta series and Corrin from the Fire Emblem Fates games are now available for download in the Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U games.
Bayonetta joins the fight to show off her Bullet Arts and Witch Time! A new stage is available, as well!
Corrin, the draconic main character of Fire Emblem Fates, joins the Smash roster! Use the Yato sword and the powers of the First Dragons to take control of the field!

Shütshimi – Fist-pumping, fish-bumping arcade fun!
Shütshimi is a randomized shoot 'em up about a muscle-bound fish with memory problems.
Armed with your trusty bullet-morphing shotgun, defeat or make your way through waves of enemies and collect power-ups as you battle your way through each of the game's bosses.
But there's a catch (there's always a catch): you've been cursed with an incredibly short attention span. Combat waves and upgrade cycles only last 10 seconds a piece, so you'd better act fast!
This family-friendly game features a chaotic four-player local co-op mode and off-TV game play.

How kidnapping M will help him with this goal remains something of a mystery, but R is determined to thwart him by rescuing M from his clutches.
