Burgers, mini-games, and a Game Boy title head to Nintendo's downloadable services this week.  

Each downloadable service received one game this week, while the Wii Virtual Console was again left out of the loop.

First, the 3DS Virtual Console received Jaleco's Maru's Mission. Take control of the ninja Maru as you travel the globe in an attempt to rescue Maru's girlfriend, Cori. This side-scrolling action game, developed by Tose, is available for $2.99.

DSiWare got 40-in-1 Explosive Megamix this week. This mini-game collection is packed with games of many different genres. Enjoy Sudoku, play a cooking game, and more for $7.99 or 800 Nintendo DSi Points.

Lastly, WiiWare received an update of an old classic in the form of BurgerTime World Tour. The game features more than 20 levels of arcade style action and retails for 1,000 Wii points ($10).

Also New This Week

In addition to video games available at retail stores, Nintendo also offers a variety of content that people can download directly to their systems. Nintendo adds new titles to the Nintendo eShop for the Nintendo 3DS™ system, to the Nintendo DSi™ Shop for the Nintendo DSi system and to the Wii™ Shop Channel for the Wii console at 9 a.m. Pacific time on Thursdays. 

The Nintendo eShop is a cash-based service and features games, applications and videos in both 2D and 3D. Users can add money to their virtual wallets using a credit card or by purchasing a Nintendo 3DS Prepaid Card at a retail store and entering the code from the card. 

The Wii Shop Channel offers games and applications and uses Wii Points™, which can be purchased via the Wii Shop Channel. The Nintendo DSi Shop offers games and applications and uses Nintendo DSi Points™, which can be purchased in the Nintendo DSi Shop. A Wii Points Card™ and Nintendo DSi Points Card™ can be purchased at retail locations. All points from one card must be redeemed in either the Wii Shop Channel or the Nintendo DSi Shop, respectively. They are not transferable and cannot be divided between the two systems. 

Remember that Wii, Nintendo 3DS and Nintendo DSi feature parental controls that let adults manage some of the content their children can access.

So it's cheaper to buy the DSiWare game on a DSi? I thought most DSiWare games were like $0.01 cheaper on 3DS (i.e. $2.99 vs. 300 points)?

The BurgerTime game looks alright based on videos I have seen, but I am not sure about $10. It's tempting, if it was $15 I would not even consider it.

It's getting worse...
They should put the NES games for download already (they are available in JP), but instead they put a completely random GB game...

I know the eShop for the 3DS hadn't been up and running for all that long, but I happen to KNOW that they have a bigger and more interesting selection of games to chose from that don't have any licensing issues to deal with in order to put them up. I'd like to say "there's a reason as to why they haven't", (but I'll be damned if I can think of any).
