It's been a while since I've posted the weekly Nintendo Download highlights, but I'm going to try my best to get back into getting these out again, and what better time to pick this back up than the week that The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time hits the Wii U Virtual Console. I think it's safe to say that Ocarina of Time is one of the best games in the series, especially for being the first of the 3D Legend of Zelda games.
Over on the 3DS eShop we have Samurai Warriors Chronicles 3, which was developed to celebrate the 10-year anniversary of the Samurai Warriors franchise. Samurai Warriors Chronicles 3 takes the best features from the past Samurai Warriors games, which includes the detailed customization mode and battle system of Samurai Warriors 4, as well as the Challenge Mode. You can play as either a customized character or a historically inspired Samurai.
As usual there's a lot more going on this week in the eShops, so hit up Nintendo's official press release for all of this week's offers.
