Nintendo Download: 6th February (Europe)

Golf, farming, an expedition and a load of discounts

It's Nintendo Download update time, Europe, and this week's Thursday offerings are perhaps more attractive for the discounts than the new downloads. We do have the arrival of a DSiWare / 3DS eShop series on the Wii U, along with some classic 8-bit sport and a new DSiWare game, but Rising Star Games perhaps offers the most temptation with a series of retail download discounts. Let's get to it.

Wii U eShop

My Farm (BiP Media, €7.99 / £7.19) — BiP Media's My Farm series has certainly had a consistent run on the DSi and 3DS online stores, and now steps into the home console market with Wii U. We can expect more of the same real-time management of animals and the farm, all to sell commodities and make a tidy profit. We'll muck in for our review, soon.

Wii U Virtual Console

NES Open Tournament Golf (Nintendo, €4.99 / £3.49) — While Golf wasn't new on the NES when this title was originally released in the West, this effort brought a great deal more charm and replayability to the sport. It has three courses and three modes and, most importantly, the two player mode makes it onto the Virtual Console version. We'll hit the Links to let you know what we think, but in the meantime you can check out our 3DS Virtual Console NES Open Tournament Golf review. This is the US version of the game.

Hidden Expedition Titanic (MSL, €7.99 / £7.19) — DSiWare makes another return, with this title assigning you the task of exploring the sunken Titanic over the course of 14 missions in 17 locations. It sure sounds like a hidden object game to us, but we'll explore its depths to find out.


Those are the downloads on the way this week, Europe. Let us know if you're planning to pick any of these up in the comments below.
