There's no objection to investigative crossovers in this week's Downloads!

Summer is pretty much over now, so that’s bound to mean that the Download is ready to come back to life, right? Vital signs seems to indicate there is indeed improvement. The biggest crossover since Sonic and Mario went to the Olympics leads this week in the Download as Professor Layton and Phoenix Wright team up for what is sure to be quite the investigative adventure.

On the Virtual Console front, there’s Mega Man X3, which completes the trio of Mega Man X games for the Super Nintendo, as well as Donkey Kong Jr. Math, which made edutainment kind of cool in the 80s. Well, not really, but why insult this game when all it wants to do is educate. Check out this week’s releases below!

Grabbed D&D: Chronicles of Mystara and am pretty excited about getting some friends together to play through. Vaguely remember playing and loving these games in the arcades, and the sale price is too good to pass up.

Lots of good content (new content and games on sale) this week though. It might even be the elusive "something for everyone" week?

I like how I had to find an empty SD card just to take advantage of these deals because my current one is completely full and I don't want to go through the hassle of fridge cleaning just to buy some stuff on the eshop.

Nintendo, I know my SD card is full. Here's the thing, I DON'T want to download it now, I just want to purchase it so I can pop by later whenever I have a bigger sd card so I can get it that way.

No, I think this "Outback Pet Rescue 3d" thing will be enough to keep me busy.

Does that Capcom sale only apply to Nintendo consoles or are those games on sale on PSN too? I been wanting to get D&D but not at the price they been asking for it. I got DuckTales day one and kind of regret paying full price for that.

Got a news tip? Send it in!
