Ocarina of Time for Wii U Headlines This Week’s Nintendo Download


Ocarina of Time for Wii U Headlines This Week’s Nintendo Download

Games, sales, and updates.

The N64 classic, Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, is making its debut on the Wii U by way of this week’s Nintendo Download.

This is the original N64 version, which depending on your preference, is a good or bad thing. And while it isn’t as pretty as say the updated HD 3DS version, it is for sale at a pretty fair price; selling for only $9.99. Also, as expected, off-TV play is supported. So go ahead, grab that Wii U GamePad, maybe a nice iced coffee, and kick back on a hot summer day with your new (or old) bae Link.

Other highlights include Samurai Warrior Chronicles 3 for the 3DS and a multitude of sales featuring the Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney series. Both Dual Destinies and the Ace Attorney Trilogy are on sale until July 16. Finally, there is a new Splatoon game mode, Tower Control, which is a “new game mode that finds Inklings riding a tower into the enemy’s base.”

Check out the full list of games, updates, and sales below and let us know if you’re planning on picking anything up.
