stealth-inc-2-a-game-of-clones

This week’s Nintendo Download list for Europe is positively bursting with content, scattered across Wii U, Nintendo 3DS and Wii.

The Donkey Kong Country trilogy makes a welcome return to Wii’s Virtual Console service after it was pulled, also rounded off on Wii U and Nintendo 3DS with their concluding chapters. It’s a busy week for Wii U too, with Stealth Inc. 2: A Game of Clones, Falling Skies: The Game, and Tetrobot & Co. leading the new arrivals.

Halloween is well represented on Nintendo 3DS, with Joindots and Akaoni Studio serving up Undead Bowling and Zombie Panic in Wonderland DX respectively. But it is the long absent arrival of Shin Megami Tensei IV that will draw most attention for fans of the genre, while six Animal Crossing themes expand your opportunity to personalise the handheld’s menu screens.
