Nintendo Download: 5th January 2012 (Europe)

Hit the Pits

If you've registered two qualifying games in Club Nintendo, you can download a free game this week; if not, you'll have to choose from one of the other titles on offer in the first digital drop of the New Year.

3DS Download Software

3D Classics: Kid Icarus (Nintendo, free to qualifying users) — You can only get 3D Classics: Kid Icarus if you registered two or more qualifying 3DS games — the game will be available to download for non-qualifying members in the future for £5.40/€6. Will this 3D update pave the way well for Kid Icarus: Uprising? Find out in our upcoming review.

3DS Virtual Console

Trip World (Game Boy, Sunsoft, £2.70/€3) — A platforming game about flowers? It's no weirder than a platformer about mushrooms and plumbing, we suppose. We'll take a trip soon and let you know if this download is worth getting.


Successfully Learning Mathematics: Year 2 (Tivola, 500pts) — Just when you thought it was safe to continue your ignorance, Tivola is back with more episodic education. We'll calculate a score in our upcoming review.


Fish Tank (Bloober Team, 500pts) — Not in fact an aquarium simulator, this is a pretty enjoyable underwater puzzler, as our Fish Tank review explains.

Did you qualify for 3D Classics: Kid Icarus? If not, the promotion is open until the end of January, so there's still time.
