Nintendo Download: 4th October 2012 (Europe)
Posted by Thomas Whitehead
Puzzling moles, demo pinball and more fatal fury
It's time for our regular Monday pick-me-up in the form of the European Nintendo Download update. Only three new offerings this week, but let's get to it.
Mole Mania (Nintendo, £2.69/€2.99) — Mole Mania arrived in the North American store earlier in the summer, but those in Europe curious about this Game Boy puzzle title — produced by Shigeru Miyamoto — can finally see what it's all about. It's all about solving puzzles by alternating between navigating an underground area and moving objects around on the surface, with enemies and boss battles thrown in. Despite the odd control niggle, we gave it a solid recommendation in our Mole Mania review.
3DS eShop Demo
Marvel Pinball 3D (Zen Studios, Free) — It's a demo! In Europe! Once you get past the excitement of seeing a new demo pop up in the eShop, we recommend that you download right away. The big bonus is that it's free, of course, but it's also a sample of a rather excellent handheld pinball game, as our Marvel Pinball 3D review explains.
Wii Virtual Console
Real Bout Fatal Fury 2: The Newcomers (D4 Enterprise, 900 points) — This arrives in Europe just one week after gracing the North American Wii Virtual Console, bringing with it plenty of fighters and move-sets to learn. There have been a fair number of Fatal Fury titles — this is number seven — and we're currently brawling and scrapping to bring you a review.
A relatively humble list this week, do let us know what you're downloading and what you think in the comments below.
