If you live in the Northeastern United States as I do, then you’re probably suffering through a blizzard. However, that’s okay, because Nintendo uploaded new games on to the eShop. So, once you’ve finished shoveling, reward yourself with something from Nintendo’s digital storefront.


Mario vs. Donkey Kong was the Game Boy Advance’s spiritual sequel to the Game Boy’s Donkey Kong. And, while this was the springboard for the ongoing Mario vs. Donkey Kong series, this installment is the only one to mechanically resemble its predecessor. In this game, you play as Mario in a puzzle-platformer spanning six worlds. Utilize Mario’s acrobatic prowess to save his business and stop a mischaracterized Donkey Kong.

Azure Striker Gunvolt: The Anime, for the Nintendo 3DS, gives us a closer look at the universe of a popular indie series. Inti Creates, LandQ Studios and Touhoku Shinkai adapted a familiar campaign for this OVA. Plus, the original Japanese voice cast and an English dub are included.

Here’s everything Nintendo released on the eShop this week:
