Nintendo eShop Downloads: Super Mario Maker & more


This week is a big week for Nintendo fans, as you’ll be able to get your hands on Super Mario Maker tonight at midnight PST on the Nintendo eShop. While Super Mario Maker is certainly the biggest release of the week, don’t forget the handful of indie titles that are worth your attention, too.

Q.U.B.E. Director’s Cut has finally released on Wii U and The Swindle is out as well, a 2D rogue-like about stealing as much money as you can without getting caught.

TECMO BOWL – Match your gridiron skills against the computer or another human player in this popular football game from the NES console. From the snap, control of every pass, run and tackle is in your hands. The player can select from 12 teams. Choose from two run plays and two pass plays on offense. Defense consists of trying to guess which offensive play the opponent will select and then taking control of one of the defensive players before the snap. A simple power-meter system is used for kicking field goals, extra points and punts.
