After last weeks somewhat dull lineup for Nintendo downloads, things are finally back on form. This week sees the release of Crosswords Plus, which may not be the biggest launch ever but with over a 1000 crosswords in there, its certainly enough to waste a few dinner breaks or pass the time on a long journey. Learn a little something about art theory and master the skills of the digital paintbrush with Art Academy: Lessons for Everyone. Pokemon Dream Radar allows you to catch new pokemon and transfer them to the soon to be released Version 2 of the game that launches on the 7th. Style Savvy: Trendsetters allows you to dig in to the word of fashion.
Plus this week sees the release of new course packs for New Super Mario Bros 2, offering yet more content to the already popular title. But best of all we have a free game! with Donkey Gong: Original Edition, which you can unlock by downloading one of the designated eShop titles on your 3DS or 3DS XL.
So what will you be downloading this week?
