Nintendo Download list: 21st August 2014 (North America)
Another week has passed and so we once again find a new Nintendo Download list upon us for North America, which brings an even spread of new content across Wii U and Nintendo 3DS.
Most interestingly, Disney Infinity has become available to download digitally entirely free of charge. You still need the Disney Infinity Base and figures to play, but it’s a welcome opportunity for those that may consider upgrading to Wii U from Wii – following on from the news that Skylanders Trap Team will include a free Wii U download code.
Elsewhere, Life Force and Mega Man join Wii U’s Virtual Console service, while WayForward’s Xtreme Sports leaps onto Nintendo 3DS. The handheld is also treated to BlazBlue Clonephantasma and Demon King Box, while Midtown Crazy Race takes you back to the 90s on Wii U.
