This week's Nintendo Download comes in the form of one new game and, believe it or not, an anime video. Over on the 3DS eShop is a video called Azure Striker Gunvolt: The Anime. The video was put together by LandQ Studios and Touhoku Shinkai and presents "a scenario that fans of the series will be familiar with" and also presents a deeper look into the world of the game itself. I'm not the biggest anime buff but I'm always interested in checking out any anime that's based on a video game series. Someday I still want someone to make an actual Chrono Trigger anime series.
Meanwhile on the Wii U we have Mario vs. Donkey Kong. Originally released on the Game Boy Advance in 2004, Mario vs. Donkey Kong is the spiritual successor to Donkey Kong on the original Game Boy. The goal of the game is to jump and fight through each stage using switches, conveyor belts, and hammers to defeat your enemies and reach the goal. While the later Mario vs. Donkey Kong games added some minis you had to lead to the goal like a group of lemmings, fans of Donkey Kong on the Game Boy would find much of the same here and that's definitely a good thing.
