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 Download adds new games weekly to Nintendo eShop, which offers a variety of options for the Nintendo Switch family of systems, the Wii U console and the Nintendo 3DS family of systems.
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 Nintendo eShop on the Nintendo Switch family of systems, Wii U or the Nintendo 3DS family of systems, but can be used in any Nintendo eShop if the systems are linked to a single Nintendo Account.
Customers in the U.S. and Canada ages 18 and older can also link a PayPal account to their Nintendo Account to purchase digital games and content for the Nintendo Switch family of systems both on-device and from the Nintendo website. Once the accounts are linked, users may also use PayPal as a payment option when buying digital content for the Wii U or Nintendo 3DS family systems from the Nintendo website.
This week’s Nintendo Download includes the following content:

LEGO Bricktales – Embark on an epic adventure across a world of beautiful LEGO diorama biomes crafted brick-by-brick with your little robot buddy in tow as you search for inspiration to help your grandfather reinvigorate his rundown amusement park.
Your journey will take you to the deepest jungle, sun-drenched deserts, a bustling city corner, a towering medieval castle and tropical Caribbean islands. Help the minifigures of these worlds by solving puzzles and unlock new skills throughout the story to uncover the many secrets and mysteries they contain.
LEGO Bricktales will be available on Oct. 12.
No Man’s Sky – Inspired by the sense of adventure and imagination from classic science-fiction, No Man’s Sky presents you with a galaxy to explore, filled with distinct planets and lifeforms, and constant danger and action.

In this infinite procedurally generated universe, you’ll discover places and creatures that no other players have seen before – and perhaps never will again.
