Nintendo Download: 21st August (North America)

Posted by Thomas Whitehead

Free Disney Infinity, Mega Man, Demon's Box, BlazBlue, Discounts and more

That time has come once again, North American gamers, for details of the downloadable treats coming to Wii U and 3DS this week. There's a major surprise with a retail freebie on Wii U, while there are a couple of new titles on the 3DS eShop and some excellent Virtual Console options; plenty of tempting discounts have also been thrown in. Let's get to it.

What? You missed the Nintendo Download European Update this week? Fear not, the details are right here, and there are also loads of Super Smash Bros.-themed discounts to consider as well.


Wii U eShop

Midtown Crazy Race (Jose Varela, $4.99) — This is pitched as "tribute to the car games from late 90s", with bold promises of an open world, seven cars, realistic physics and plenty of challenges. Unfortunately, it fails to actually deliver as a good game, and we were extremely critical of this one in our Midtown Crazy Race review.

Wii U Virtual Console

Mega Man 6 (Capcom, $4.99) — Completing the NES set on Wii U, this was the end of an era and even introduced armour into the formula. Aside from that change, however, it was a safe effort and not one that lived up to some of the glorious earlier entries; nevertheless we gave this a reasonable recommendation in our Mega Man 6 review.

Life Force (Konami, $4.99) — An iconic shooter from Konami, this title alternates from horizontal to vertical stages and hits plenty of its marks — attractive 8-bit visuals, memorable tunes, tight gameplay and the option for two-player co-op. It's also pretty darn difficult, but that didn't stop it receiving an 8/10 in our Life Force review.

Wii U eShop Retail Download

Disney Infinity (Disney Interactive, free) — In a surprising move, last year's début for Disney's toy-driven game arrives on the eShop as a free download, potentially as a means to drive interest in the upcoming sequel. Though gamers will need to pick up the game's portal and some figures, it's fascinating that the download itself has no cost. We were rather impressed with this in our Disney Infinity review last year.

Wii U eShop Temporary Discounts

Nano Assault NEO [Shin'en Multimedia, $7.49 until 11th September, normally $9.99)

Chasing Aurora (Broken Rules, $3.99 until 11th September, normally $7.99)

Abyss (EnjoyUp Games, $1.49 until 10th September, normally $1.99)

3DS eShop

Demon King Box (CIRCLE Entertainment, $3.99) — This looks like an intriguing title in principle, with RPG elements as you gather and level-up demons; the minor twist is that it incorporates real-time strategy in its battles. This looks to have plenty of depth and a "gripping storyline", and we'll let you know what we think in our upcoming review.

BlazBlue: Clone Phantasma (Arc System Works, $5.99 / $6.99CAD) — With cute versions of BlazBlue characters and the promise of simple, one button brawling, this is a spiritual sequel to DSiWare title BayzBloo: Super Melee Action Battle Royale. There's a story mode along with a simplistic challenge option, and we'll see whether this can be more engaging than its predecessor in our review.

3DS Virtual Console

Xtreme Sports (WayForward, $4.99) — This Game Boy Color title combines a host of sports presented with a twist, while you also explore the island / venue "to find friends, foes and even a few hidden treats". It all comes together nicely for a fun, colourful game, as explained in our totally rad Xtreme Sports review.

3DS eShop Temporary Discounts

Nano Assault EX (Shin'en Multimedia, $7.49 until 11th September, normally $9.99)

Aqua Moto Racing 3D (Zordix AB, $5.99 until 18th September, normally $7.99)

Boulder Dash-XL 3D (Reef Entertainment, $1.69 until 27th August, normally $4.99)

European Conqueror 3D (CIRCLE Entertainment, $2.79 until 4th September, normally $3.99)

AeternoBlade (Corecell Technology, $9.99 until 7th September, normally $14.99)

Quell Reflect (CIRCLE Entertainment, $2.79 until 11th September, normally $3.99)

Disney Infinity is like getting a physical game on Xmas and not owning the console it plays on.

@Olmectron

2 weeks ago: Super Mario Kart, Mega Man 5, Cybernator
Last week: Mega Man Battle Chip Challenge, Double Dragon 2
This week: Mega Man 6, Life Force

Wow, you're hard to please. A Nintendo classic from the SNES, a well-reviewed Konami game, 2 NES Mega Man games, one of the best shooters on the NES (if not the best), a classic beat 'em up and some Mega Man battle game that people seem to love? I'd say these are 3 of the best weeks in a long time.

@unrandomsam Well, fair enough, I'm not a big fan of the genre and I've never played that one. But even if it's not the best, Life Force is pretty awesome, and I know it's pretty well-respected and loved.

Olmectron said:

@Krambo42 Okay, I was rude. I'm sorry for that. However, this is the first time I commented like that. Got Super Mario Kart for $1.50 two weeks ago. I'm not really into Megaman or those other VC games.

Then, NoE will release GBA Fire Emblem remake for VC today, a game I would gladly pay full reatil price. But NoA won't.

free disney infinity? don't say you don't get anything north america ;) i have no interest in buying the sequel but i would get some of the figures if they released it free in europe :)

bezerker99 - Portal is about $10 online but the figures and playsets are the more expensive part. You can buy them used or pay about $30 in store for a playset

Disney Infinity is free?! That's awesome. Granted I've already played it on PS3, but if the portal works on both consoles, I'll do it all again.

It is not that suprising disney infinity. It was free on pc and other online shops. The toys and the portals are where the money is coming from. So if they can sell more toys they will sell this free.

Birthday_Boy said:

I've been meaning to get back into Infinity for the past few days. Glad to see they're offering a free version. Turns another one of my retail games to downloadable titles, and I'm cool with that.
I'm just hoping all the save data from my disk gets transfered to the DL version, but even then, it's not much. I wasn't a huge toy box builder.

Krambo42

Krambo42 said:

@Olmectron Oh, no, don't worry about it...I didn't think you were being rude, just...I don't know...it seems to me that these last 3 weeks have been a lot closer to what people have been hoping for. Of all the times to complain, this just seemed like a weird time to me. If none of these games are for you, that's fine, but they've been releasing a good number of quality games lately. Even next week when Donkey Kong Jr. Math hits, I think we're supposed to get Mega Man X3, which is huge. We've been getting more quality, more SNES, just...more. I'd say things are looking up. Of course, we'll see if it lasts.

DANG! Went on the e-shop to download Infinity for free and realised this was for North American systems :/

@Krambo42 Just because these games appeal to you doesn't mean that they have to appeal to everyone else. Let people complain if they want. It's good to have different opinions of the same subject.

Olmectron

Olmectron said:

@Krambo42 I'm getting Layton x Ace Attorney crossover next week. I've been waiting for it since it was announced.

My angry comment was probably because I'm jealous for all of the discounts NoE on eShop has been doing because of SSB. And that's beacuse I'm going all digital, so even a 10% discount is very welcome for a Nintendo title.

Heh, sorry again anyway. And yes, we're getting many super games for Wii U and 3DS in September and October. Hope it continues.

Beau_Skunk said:

Is Boulder Dash worth it? Especially at that low a price?

Nice to see the Virtual Console is picking up the pace with 2 WiiU VC titles, (even if they're already on 3DS) and the first new Gameboy Color VC game for 3DS in a loooong time.

XCWarrior

XCWarrior said:

For curious games on the games on sale:
Nano Assault is a lot of fun if you like SCHMUPS, its not bullet hell by any means.

Abyss is a quick fun. Takes some patience to learn the controls, but I really enjoyed it.

World Conqueror 3D I have been having fun with b/c I enjoy the game Risk, so Euro Conqueror 3D might be up your alley if you like Risk.

Like how there is some solid VC love again this week, and I already read one review giving Demon King Box a 9/10. Will wait for NLife review as well, but that looks like it might be a steal of an RPG for $4.

Stu13

Stu13 said:

Demon King Box looks really cool, and hard to pass up at that price. Will probably also get Nano Assault Neo while it's on sale as I've had my eye on it for a while.

FX102A

FX102A said:

I really hope Life Force makes it to Europe soon. Shm'ups make up a big part of my Wii VC collection despite the "risks" due to the lack of a central account system. Still cheaper than getting a the system(s) and games.

If only Sega could get some Saturn & Dreamcast games on the Wii U VC. I'd sell a kidney for Hyper Dual and Zero Gunner 2.

Krambo42

#39

Krambo42 said:

@Sadodi I'm not saying they have to appeal to everybody. Obviously not every game appeals to everybody. But there has been a noticeable improvement in the quality of games over the last few weeks. If people don't like Mega Man, for example, that's fine. But I don't think anybody would argue that they are bad games totally undeserving of being on the VC.

Krambo42

#40

Krambo42 said:

@Olmectron Ha, yeah, I don't like to argue either. I was just surprised to see somebody say these last three weeks had "nothing really good".

Layton vs. Ace Attorney should be pretty awesome. I'm a big AA fan. Enjoy!

Definitely getting Blazblue and likely will pick up Xtreme Sports one day. But for now, my wallet rests because next week will have PLxPWAA, Tappingo 2, and Azure Striker Gunvolt.

Wow! & to think I almost bought boulder dash at $4.99 last week good thing I put it on my wish list in 3ds e-shop for later. Yay get it for $1 lol. Nice! ;)

What is Disney Infinity? Might pick up for 3DS if any good. :)

Happy Gaming! (^_^)

aaronsullivan said:

Disney Infinity for free is a great idea? Why? It's a digital copy. It's on your console. That's nice.

There's no other real use for it unless you somehow get your hands on a base station (which could happen pretty easily once 2.0 comes out and everyone will have an extra).

Still, it will be nice to have it on console without having to put the disk in and wait. :)

Also, for anyone interested go look at retail for Disney Infinity. Target had the base set on sale for $30. That's the base station, the game, and three figurines for $30. Plus, if you want it on your console now you can download it for free, too. :)

Mega719 said:

@chiefeagle02 yeah i guess but someone would still have to buy the Portal and figures just to play the game, i don't know if Disney sells the portal individually. Skylanders Swap Force was a much better game yet that isn't free on Wii U

mystman12 said:

Disney Infinity is free... ARGH! I could have just bought a portal off of eBay or something... Honestly I wouldn't be upset about spending a hundred dollars when it came out, if I enjoyed the game more. It seemed like something I would really enjoy, but for whatever reason I just couldn't really get into it... Oh well.

GreatPlayer said:

well, the figures are not free, and thus it still require you to purchase the figures for the game.

Going to grab Disney infinity for sure, if nothin else to get the club Nintendo points. Also thinking about boulder dash

aaronsullivan

#60

aaronsullivan said:

@Mega719
The portal is not sold separately. You'd have to get it used... but then that person selling it would probably want to sell the game with it too.

I think this is just a way to get it installed on your console... but as I said, once 2.0 comes out (soon) since it's the portal always comes with that version of the game, people will then have an extra portal laying around they might want to get rid of it.

BertoFlyingFox

#61

BertoFlyingFox said:

It's just Abyss for me this week, might grab a few older releases I havent picked up.

As for Disney Infinity, it seems completely worthless as a promotional piece if people would still need to buy a portal and figure.

Mega719

#63

Mega719 said:

@aaronsullivan still a lot of work and money wasted. They would still have to buy another costly starter pack just to play this one, they might as well stick with 2.0 if they can't get their hands on one. Not to mention the figures which are still pretty expensive to buy if you want a lot of them and playsets. I found a site where you can get 6 Skylanders figures for both Giants and Swap Force for $9.99 (plus shipping)

Olmectron

Olmectron said:

It's like when I bought Mario Kart. Had the 4 games NoA was offering, so I chose one I had only on disc and sold the disc. Although maybe this time I won't be able to sell the disc alone. Sigh... At least it's more comfortable to not change discs.

I will grab the free Disney Infinity when I get home and start looking around for a portal. I can grab the Cars and Toy Story playset and they will be happy.

It appears the PC version is also free on their website now (Disney Infinity 1.0) and comes with a digital starter pack of the Incredibles. Instead of needing a portal you just digitally purchase the characters you want. Perhaps this is what the Wii U digital version will do also.

EDIT: As stated below, this is a free upgrade for Wii Disney Infinity owners.... Sad, as I wouldn't mind the game for my children, if I didn't need to have the statues and other crap all over the place.

'Nothing for me this week' seems to get the highest vote each week but I can't find it in the eshop.

aaronsullivan

#92

aaronsullivan said:

To sum up on Disney Infinity being free. Here's why:
If you want to upgrade to Wii U from Wii version (or PS3/Xbox). Free.
If you want to buy the $20 portal on Amazon (don't do this)
Even if you have it retail already, digital on-console is convenient and free.
It's possible (but very unlikely) that it will have dlc and not need figures like the PC and iPad version. Edit: NOPE
NEW IDEA: It's possible that this is also a way to make sure 2.0 buyers can also play the old playsets. (Toy box 2.0 will work with all figurines, but not sure about playsets)

Why not buy the base station from Amazon? You'd be much better off getting the 1.0 Starter Edition at heavily discounted at retail (Target currently has it for $30 which includes base station, 3 figurines and 3 playsets) or maybe even used. Or just wait a few weeks and get 2.0 if you are interested in that.

Nevermind, from Nintendo.com's website:

Great characters. Great adventures.

Disney Infinity is now free in the Nintendo eShop for Wii U! While you’ll still need a Disney Infinity base and Disney Infinity figures to play the game, families that purchased the starter pack on Wii can now enjoy the game on Wii U with their existing accessories for free! Enjoy online multiplayer and more fun ways to play! Use your Wii U Game Pad to create your own worlds in the Toy Box, or activate missions and unlock toys in Play Sets.

Discover three Play Sets, including Monsters University, Pirates of the Caribbean, and the Incredibles:

Play as Sulley in his early student days in the world of Monsters University
Plunge into adventure as Captain Jack Sparrow in the Pirates of the Caribbean and find pieces of the Kraken’s Bane
Activate the powers of Mr. Incredible on a quest to save the world from Syndrome and his super villains
Create your own worlds in Toy Box! Mash up unlocked toys from the Play Sets along with Disney and Disney/Pixar characters to invent just about any adventure you can imagine.

Notice: A Disney Infinity Figure and Base are required to play downloadable game. Compatible figures and base are available in the Disney Infinity Wii packaged version and the Disney Infinity Wii U packaged version. Additional Disney Infinity figures sold separately at retail stores. File size for digital download is 9.15 GB.

@Krambo42
take a look at your list and compare it to EU though I am going to bring up July 24

July 24 - 2 NES megaman games and 1 GBA one
August 7 - Megaman Battle chip
August 14 - Megaman III (3DS)
August 21 - Megaman IV (3DS) and Double dragon. Then today you guys also got Fire Emblem.

Now, at the same time, you guys have been having VC promotions for the last month and a half where NA has seen absolutely nothing in that way. July 31st is the only time really you didn't get that great of a choice for the VC but I'd say 3 of them from the previous week and the massive list of promotions well makes up for that.

I was excited about downloading the free Disney Infinity on the Wii U and using our collection we built and played on the 360......until I found out that the 360 base doesn't work on the Wii U! Bases seem to be around $12 on ebay, or I can wait until 2.0 comes out and buy it for the Wii U this time. it's only about a month away.

@SavoirFaire There isn't a Frozen Play Set. They come in a double pack (with texture discs), but you can only use them in the Toy Box; they don't have their own game world like the Incredibles or Toy Story figures.
Same with Wreck-It Ralph/Vanellope (:() and Phineas/Perry.

I recommend people to buy Skylanders over Infinity. 1.0 was just a month worth of fun and needed a lot of polish. When i bought Swap Force recently i was surprised on how phenomenal it was compared to Spyro's Adventure. 2.0 honestly doesn't look as promising as Trap Team

Very smart move to give Disney Infinity away to try and gain more attention for their new game and toy lineup. They know they have more competition coming their way and I respect their attempt to try and convince more try and, eventually, buy their products.

Maybe its time to pick up Aeternoblade. I did like the demo. If Blazeblue had online play it would be an automatic buy. I see they are intent of selling less than 100 copies of Steel Empire. Hmmm just a word of advice to Teyon. If a game isn't selling you may want to think of lowering the price. Just a suggestion

For almost everyone here -

2 reasons they are giving away DI for free:

1. DI 2.0 is NOT coming out on Wii, so they don't wont to PO people who have only a Wii and bought a Wii version and now need to buy a Wii U to play 2, but then they won't have 1 on U b/c it will be on their Wii. At least this way people who do buy a Wii U to play 2.0 can at least still have 1 on that system. (I'm assuming this is a lifetime offer, not 1 week only.)

2. Buy Skylanders Trap force on Wii, get Wii U download version for free. This is sort of a match for that.

Big question is, will Wii U version 2.0 portal work w/ game 1? If that's the case maybe we'll buy 2.0 and think of 1 as a free game bonus.

I liked Life Force on my 3DS, but I also said, "I wish this would come to Wii U, it would be easier to get someone to play it with me." Finally, I can get the Wii U version. I'll probably just put it on my wishlist for now, but it's definitely a good (if really hard) game.

I don't get why the figurines can't just the NFC device in the gamepad... save the download for later. I probably can't make platinum this year so I'll just wait until the next cycle

Well, I guess it's good this week isn't the greatest for Wii U. Easier to save for Steamworld Dig, X3 and some new pinball tables. I'm a pretty big fan of both Deadpool and Doc Strange and there's the Walking Dead table too! Should be a great week :)

I have 2.0 preordered and a few figures from 1.0. Is it really even worth DLing the first one and playing it once the second comes out?

The funny thing is that I JUST got DI this week because of Target’s thirty dollar sale.

So...you can download Disney Infinity for free, but you still need to buy a Starter Pack if you want to play it...? That's about as logical as a Dodrio using Fly, and yet they both exist now. :|

@ikki5 I wasn't talking about NA there, they will probably only get MM7 and then MMX3 on the 1st week of September. I was thinking EU especially as there was a week in which nothing came out.

Found out xbox 360 base not compatible, bought a used one at V-stock for 14.99 to use with all the different worlds and characters we had for xbox. Big hint the game store people thought all the bases were interchangeable however the model number code on the bottom of the base ends in 5 for the xbox but a 6 for the Wii U. This makes all the difference in the world
