There might not be a big Nintendo Direct dropping like we had last week, but that doesn't mean today's Nintendo Download drop is going to be any less exciting. In fact, we've got a huge haul of new titles, ranging from classic Neo Geo ports (because HAMSTER always has one of those up its sleeves), a post-apocalyptic adventure, some colourful puzzles games, and yes, a Bingo game.
