Nintendo Downloads for the Week of 9/8

By François Chang

September 8, 2011

It’s Thursday again, and that means new Nintendo downloads have arrived for 3DS, DS and Wii. This week there are 4 new games and 1 demo. The most familiar of the bunch is the re-release of Golf for Game Boy. I, personally, have not had much experience with the original Golf, but did play a heck of a lot of Mario Golf for Game Boy Color. If it’s anything like what I played, it should offer up a good amount of fun (even though I know it’s not as content heavy). Check out the rest to see if anything catches your eye.
