Today's Nintendo Download update adds six new games across Nintendo's downloadable game services.

One of the bigger games out this week is Hudson Soft's Blaster Master: Enemy Below for the 3DS Virtual Console. Released originally in 2000, Blaster Master is an action shoot 'em up known for its high levels of challenge. The game can be downloaded for $4.99.

Today's other notable release is Carmen Sandiego: Adventures in Math: The Lady Liberty Larceny.

Players can also compete with each other by solving math problems as fast as possible. The Gamelion release is available now for 600 Wii Points ($6).

The title is available now for $7.99 in the eShop or 800 DSiWare points on the DSi Shop.

The final release of the week is dtp young's Just SING! Christmas Vol. 3. Much like previous entry in the series, Vol. 3 is a karaoke title that lets players sing into their 3DS or DSi.
