Nintendo is wading into the the digital download pool little at a time. Soon, however, it will be taking a rather large step towards the deep end where the likes of Steam, PlayStation and Xbox hang out. Starting on August 17th, you will be able to download large titles in the Nintendo eShop.
The games available for download on the 17th will be: New super Mario Bros. 2, New Art Academy: Learn New Painting Techniques and Share Your Art, and Freakyforms Deluxe Your Creations Alive!. Wow, Nintendo really needs to work on their title names. Two of those have the word “new” in front of them, and two of them are way too long. How do you even tell your friends what you’re playing when it takes five minutes to say the title?Anyways, these are not the only games that will be making their way over to the eShop. Nintendo says over time, many more 3Ds games will become available for download. As a fantastic incentive to download these games, Nintendo is offering double the Club Nintendo stars for games purchased this way. To receive your stars make sure your 3Ds is connected to your Nintendo Club account and you have completed the survey.
