Nintendo Download: This is getting better edition


This week’s update is great if you own a Nintendo 3DS (sorry Wii owners).  Rumor is swirling around the internets that Rayman Origins might be the first downloadable retail game come June 5th.  This would be a great choice being it’s 29.99 price tag and the fact that it is critically acclaimed.  Also Nintendo treats us to a 3D Men in Black trailer and Kirby’s Block Ball ( think Arknoid or Breakout ) for the 3DS virtual console.

This week’s Nintendo Download includes the following featured content:
