Nintendo Download Weekly Update 8.23.12

Nintendo adds new titles to the Nintendo eShop, Nintendo Video and the Wii Shop Channel every week and we grab all info and put it here so you can stay up to speed on all of Nintendo’s most recent digital offerings.

This week’s offering is surprisingly limited and now that New Super Mario Bros. 2 has officially hit shelves the “Month of Mario” promotion has sadly come to a close. However, the 3DS is getting new high-speed thrills in VectorRacing, Metal Slug X hits the Virtual Console and DSiWare sinks into the Abyss.  Head past the break for the full update!

Nintendo eShop
VectorRacing – Enjoy a new, high-speed racing game that recalls the video games of yore. Use one of six different machines to race across 12 courses — some easy, some insane — in four different modes. (For Nintendo 3DS / Nintendo 3DS XL)

Virtual Console
METAL SLUG X – This game is based on Metal Slug 2, but adds the new “Iron Lizard” and “Drop Shot” weapons. It also adds many new enemies and allows players to adjust the game’s difficulty level by changing the position of bosses and other things. (For Wii)

Also new this week:
Abyss (Nintendo DSiWare)
