Are you ready to spend some Wii Points, DSi Points, or some Nintendo money? Realize that I said "Nintendo money" and not "Nintendo's Money", because we all know who's pocket it comes out of. Anyway, it's that time again. It's Thursday and Nintendo has released their downloads today. So whether you have been window shopping or waiting to see what's new, let's see what is in store. That way you can see if you want to spend those points or end up just saving them.
Want more friends on your Nintendo 3DS? Be sure to check out our 3DS Friend Code thread. Feel free to add some new friends and leave us your code, too, so that we can ensure the befriending is completed.
Here is a list of the downloads for today for the Nintendo eShop, DSiWare, WiiWare, Virtual Console, and Nintendo Video:
- Commando: Steel Disaster - "A military group is being attacked by some of its own war machines. It's up to a commando and vehicle specialist code-named Storm to stop this terrorist threat." - Nintendo
- Touch Battle Tank 3D - "In Touch Battle Tank 3D, it’s you on a solo mission against a nearly unstoppable army of killer tanks. Your strategy – keep the action going and the shells flying! Command either a powerfully armored engine of destruction or a light, agile hit-and-run variety of menacing machines capable of unleashing incredible firepower! The pick up and play ease allows you to use the Circle Pad to pilot your 3D tank and the Touch Screen to take aim in red-hot combat action! Skillfully charge through the multiple battle stages as you face increasing weaponry and constant bombardment. The enemies just keep getting bigger and more determined to crush you. Show them all that when the dust settles, you will be victorious and own the medals to prove it!

The second video highlighting one of the Warp Cannon courses is now available. When Mario gets blasted from a huge cannon in this special course, he sprints automatically toward the goal.

- World Heroes Perfect - "Originally released in 1997, this fighting game is the sixth installment in the Fatal Fury series. With a system based on previous games in the series, the game introduced a more evolved two-line battle, improved the power gauge system and abolished the ring out system. These and other changes allow for greater strategic diversity. In addition to the 15 characters featured in previous games (Excluding Geese), this game includes Tung Fu Rue, Cheng Sinzan, Laurence Blood and Wolfgang Krauser for a roster of 19 characters, all truly suited to the name Special. They’ll duke it out here to see who will come out on top as the strongest." - Nintendo
