While Pokemon GO has briskly turned Nintendo's fortunes around, they aren't abandoning their digital store customers on Wii U and 3DS. This week's Nintendo Download even offers some retro Pokemon fun, with Pokemon Ranger showing up on the Wii U Virtual Console. Nintendo is also trying to shift Star Fox Zero's checkered reputation by offering Star Fox Zero: The Battle Begins Training Demo, in addition to a demo for Star Fox Guard, to help new players come to grips with the games admittedly fiddly controls.
The 3DS is getting sales on Sonic The Hedgehog: Triple Trouble and Rock N' Racing Off Road, among others. You can check out the rest of the sales and new items in the press release below.
