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.

- Planet Crashers - "An unknown evil has emerged from the darkest corner of the galaxy with plans to snuff out the sun. Journey to the other side of the galaxy and prevent the unimaginable from happening." - Nintendo

"The Game of the Weekend" program

For a limited time, download this title from the Nintendo eShop at a discounted price of $3.99.

Nintendo eShop/Nintendo DSiWare
- Decathlon 2012 - "In each discipline you control your athlete simply with the stylus, but you won’t succeed without proper timing, speed, and managing your stamina. Results achieved in individual disciplines are stored in a table and compared with the best world scores. The total score in the decathlon is calculated using a real-world formula, thus it is possible to accurately compare your score not only to the world record but also to the other athletes participating in the competition, including up to three friends with whom you take turns during the game." - Nintendo
- World Heroes Perfect - "This is the fourth installment in the World Heroes fighting game series, released in 1995. In this game, 16 figures from across history fight for the title of the world’s strongest. In previous installments, the amount of time you held a button down determined the strength or weakness of an attack, but that system has been removed in this game. In addition to a more orthodox fighting-game approach that enables weak, middle and strong attacks using different buttons, this game includes new elements such as the Hero Gauge, Extra Attacks and Guard Breaker Attacks, adding an exciting new layer of strategy." - Nintendo
Don't forget, 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.
