NINTENDO DOWNLOAD HIGHLIGHTS NEW DIGITAL CONTENT FOR NINTENDO SYSTEMS - FEB. 2, 2012
Feb. 2, 2012 - The Nintendo eShop is a cash-based service and features games, applications and videos in both 2D and 3D. Users can add money to their virtual wallets using a credit card or by purchasing a Nintendo 3DS Prepaid Card at a retail store and entering the code from the card.
This week's Nintendo Download includes the following featured content:
Sakura Samurai: Art of the Sword™ - Leave button mashing behind. Sakura Samurai: Art of the Sword is about precision swordplay, battlefield finesse, and martial-arts style.
As the heroic title character, you'll travel a world rife with cherry-blossom beauty—and deadly danger—to rescue the legendary Princess Cherry Blossom. Her kidnapper has set dozens of blade-wielding henchmen in your path, and you'll have to exercise your best battle senses to defeat them and save her. Learn to predict your foes' moves, deftly dodge their attacks, and create opportunities for devastating counterattacks.
Start with the Sakura Sword, a little health, and some basic training from your water-spirit guide. Make your way from battleground to battleground fighting wave after wave of increasingly cunning enemies. Fight through huge castles to duel epic bosses. And don't forget to stop at small villages along the way to get help, gear, encouragement (and distraction) from the quirky townsfolk.
Prove that you truly are the Sakura Samurai!
(For Nintendo 3DS™)
GO Series: Undead Storm - The explosive action is non-stop as you take the fight to the zombie hordes.
Six months after a mysterious meteorite strike, the undead have awoken and are taking over the city. You’ll face wave after wave of killer zombies with only some serious firepower to protect you. Play solo, or team up with your friends via a local wireless connection, and take the fight to the shuffling hordes.
Solo zombie slayers can find other survivors to join them as allies. In Multi Play Mode, you can cooperate with up to three friends via a local wireless connection. They'll have your back in the firefight against the undead, and can revive you if your health flatlines. Choose from four player characters and face down the zombie threat in a horrific hospital, a hazardous chemical plant and the decimated downtown area.
What lies behind this zombie epidemic? Only you can discover the truth...
