Nintendo Download: 28th June 2012 (Europe)

Posted by James Newton

Marvel Pinball and more

A motley group of superheroes headlines this week's Nintendo Download, but there's also the second week of the store's anniversary if you're after a bargain. Here's what's up this week.

eShop

Marvel Pinball 3D (Zen Studios, £6.30/€7) — The follow-up to the successful (and rather good) Zen Pinball 3D, this brings with it new tables and new gameplay modes. Look out for our full review very soon.

DSiWare

Let's Create! Pottery (Infinite Dreams, 500pts) — The only pottery game you're ever likely to need (or see) on a Nintendo platform, this lacklustre effort leaves a lot to be desired, as our Let's Create! Pottery review explains.

Lola's Fruit Shop Sudoku (BeiZ, 200pts) — The self-proclaimed "easiest sudoku game ever", that's a double-edged sword for cute panda Lola as it rather removes the satisfaction of solving a puzzle. Find out more in our Lola's Fruit Shop Sudoku review.

eShop Sale

Starting from this Thursday you'll be able to get 20% off selected 3DS downloads. Here's what's on sale from 2pm UK/3pm CET this Thursday:

Dillon's Rolling Western — €8 / £7.20 (from €10 / £9). Read our Dillon's Rolling Western review.

Wow, Marvel is £1.80 more than Zen, both with 4 tables! I presumes it's because of the Marvel license, but I'll be getting it anyway! :D

Also, anyone who doesn't have Rolling Western needs to get it now. No excuses!!!

I loved Zen Pinball so I plan on picking up Marvel though I may consider saving 20% on the rather expensive Dillon's Rolling Western instead this week. Decisions, decisions.

Dillon for $12?! Argh! I just paid full price for it a few days before Nintendo Direct! :O

Oh well, I only lost $3. That's what, a budget DSiWare title? I'll be okay. :)

I would have gifted Freakyforms for my kid brother if only I had the option (he is overseas at the moment and won't have access to the internet until he returns). Nintendo's loss there.

Nintendo have alot to learn when it comes to sales promotions. 0.50P off for Freakforms? How's that supposed to be an incentive? I was actually interested in picking this up at a reduced price point, but a 0.50p discount is laughable.

EDIT - My bad, it's actually a larger discount that I thought. Perhaps I will buy it after all.

I've been holding out for Pinball Arcade, but I think I might break down and finally get either Marvel or Zen pinball. Have been on a real steel ball kick recently, and enjoying the rather great Pinball Pulse DSiWare title, but it's only one table. And I'm not a huge Marvel guy.... so perhaps it's time for some calming Zen action.
Also: Wish NA had these sales. But then I realize our prices are already lower than the sale prices, and don't feel quite so bad.

Not in the UK, but that pottery app (it's not really a game) is actually pretty good. It'd take forever to unlock more art though but it's sure relaxing.

I can't believe Marvel Pinball is ready already! I thought it was going to be towards the end of the year. I love Zen Pinball so Marvel is a definite for me. I won't even wait for the review.

I'm a DC guy, but I like some Marvel stuff, too. & the fact that it's pinball. I can wait for an NA release, but I might like it. Edit: Enjoy, my gamer friends! :)
