Nintendo Download for July 4, 2013

Mighty Switch Force! and Mighty Switch Force! Hyper Drive Edition go on sale in the Nintendo eShop today. Pilotwings flies onto the Wii U Virtual Console, while Sonic Drift 2 speeds onto the 3DS VC. (3DS, Mighty Switch Force, Mighty Switch Force: Hyper Drive Edition, Wii U)

Lovin these multi-eShop/multi-VC weeks for 3DS. Hope it's not done now that they've dished out all the announced Game Gear games

They've been on a roll with the Game Gear titles, plus it's nice to have something other than stuff from Nintendo consoles to play.

Pretty lackluster week I know a few people were wanting Pilot Wings but come on Nintendo you can do better ;)

Yeah, they could do better, but as a whole, the VC treatment lately has been pretty swell.

I recently did a fair (but not complete) analysis of the Virtual Console service, comparing the release dates of titles across all three regions on Nintendo's three most recent platforms (WiiU, Wii and 3DS).

What I found was this: on average, most games release in the other two regions within a 1-3 week window; the shortest time between regions was 1 week, the longest time around 7 weeks.

So, what that means is this: assuming Nintendo is able to sustain their historic momentum with the WiiU virtual console (and from the Japanese offerings this seems to be the case) we can expect to see the virtual console in NA and EU start to pick up steam this summer.

So, what I'm saying is this: yes, it sucks, but we should be getting some good stuff like Secret of Mana, FFIII and Breath of Fire pretty soon.

Here's hoping! I'd love to play Secret of Mana again.
