With E3 heading into full swing next week, many of you will be occupied looking at games that will be coming out over the next year. However, for those of you looking for things to play now, Nintendo downloads over the next week include some great deals and new releases.

First up is Trine 2: Director’s Cut with a 33% discount until June 27th, putting the price at just $9.99. Super Metroid is still available at .30 cents, but that deal is being replaced next Wednesday by the NES classic Yoshi for .30 cents. Our new virtual console games for this week are Spelunker and Senagoku 3.  Marvel Avengers Battle is also being released for Wii U, with a price of $29.99.

3DS fans can also pick up Animal Crossing: New Leaf this Sunday and a digital download version will be available directly at midnight.

    Trine 2 was 14, not 20

    • The regular price for Trine 2 in the NA Eshop is $19.99.

      • Wayne Beck

        I think they did a permanent price cut in March or something.

        • I just bought it Monday at $19.99. I’m really ticked they lowered it $10 in four days.

          • Wayne Beck

            That sucks.

            I wish more companies would do what Spin the Bottle is planning and go Minecraft Style. Release at a lower price, giving all new content to buyers free, and then raising the price as the game gets bigger.

    Ooo NES Yoshi! Never played it. Im looking very forward to it.

    • Clel

      I’ll meet you there.

    • Wayne Beck

      It’s not what you think. It’s a Tetris Style Game. If you don’t like those kind of Puzzle Games, Save your money.

      • Jack5221

        Interesting… Im not a huge fan of puzzle games, but since Yoshi will only cost 0.30$ as a part of the promotion I might as well give it a try. πŸ˜€

        • Wayne Beck

          Ha, I completely glazed over the 30 cent part. The game is totally worth 30 cents. I already got it on my Wii, so it is what it is, but I always thought it was fun for at least a few minutes.

  • AAAkabob

    Not picking up Yoshi, not my kind of game. Look it up on youtube before you buy. Trine 2 is a good buy if you’re looking for something to give you a few dozen hours of gameplay

    • Beau

      Ya, save your 30 cents. You’ll never know when you’ll need it to buy a pack of gum!

  • D.M.T

    Now I can buy Trine 2 but how big is the game? I have 22 GB in my Wii U because I’ve never bought an eShop game yet.

    • Baum γ€Œγƒ„γƒͺー」

      It’s definitely less than 2GB. I’m not sure atm if it’s less than 1GB though

    • Matt Cameron

      Trine 2 is just 1889MB, with 152MB update data

      • D.M.T

        Oh ok thanks πŸ˜€

    • Magnus Eriksson

      Have fun, its a great game!

  • Jon

    disappointing to only have one Wii U VC this week…..

    • Jonathan Dogey

      Here, here! And such a crappy one at that. Spelunker??

      I am SERIOUSLY hoping the Wii U Summer Update kicks a lot of ass. These Virtual Console titles are EXACTLY the same kind of stuff we’ve played since 2006, just on a second screen. That’s all that’s changed.

    • Bob Charlie

      Not even Super Punch-Out!!

    • tronic307

      Where’s A Link to the Past?

  • Aww man I just bought this two days ago…. Now I wished I had waited. I didn’t expect it to go on sale again so soon. GRRR they should give refunds to those who have bought recently at full price.

  • iceazeama

    so this is half off!!!!! thats a good deal if its so.

  • Jim Wanstall

    Spelunker has a terrible review , we didn’t get Senagoku 3 in the UK only the one game , was wondering when Nintendo will release N64 games , I can’t look at another snes game πŸ˜›

  • Jonathan Dogey

    I didn’t see any Senagoku 3 on my Wii U. Is that a japan only title??

  • miiandmario

    Very disappointing week.

  • Magnus Eriksson

    Im afraid to write what I think about this one. Everyone will call me a hater :/

    But I wish Nintendo could take VC more serious. It could be such a great selling point. I want Nintendo to be what they should be, they have the best library of classics. So get them out there. They got the best 1st party. So get them out there. With strong lineups on this two, Nintendo is just unbeatable.

  • FlyingBoat

    By “marvel avengers battle” do they mean battle for earth, or is this a new marvel game that slipped under my radar?

  • Saleh Sbeiti

    They should’ve just put all the Wii VC games on Wii U at once, then start putting new ones.

  • Marcus Henne

    Cool, I was waiting for Trine 2 to get on sale, my patience has been rewarded, definitely getting this when I get paid next week!!

  • Marbash

    When is Super Mario Bros 3 coming out?! Been waiting for it for a while. πŸ™
