REDMOND, Wash.--(Nintendo)-- This week’s Nintendo Download includes the following featured content:
Virtual Console on Nintendo 3DS Bionic Commando: Elite Forces – You are the perfect combination of man and machine – a Bionic Commando equipped with a Bionic Claw that will be extremely handy when infiltrating the danger zone. Blast through enemy lines as you grapple, swing and scale more than 20 levels of forests, deserts, mountains and futuristic cities. You are the last hope in saving your homeland from utter destruction. Suit up, soldier!
Virtual Console on Wii U Pokémon Pinball: Ruby & Sapphire – Much more than a regular pinball game, Pokémon Pinball: Ruby & Sapphire combines fast flipper action with a unique way to catch your favorite Pokémon. Control the flippers to shoot the Poké Ball at targets on one of two PlayFields. Play on either the Ruby or Sapphire Field to rack up as many points as possible. The game lets players catch more than 200 Pokémon and features characters from the Pokémon Ruby and Pokémon Sapphire games.
