Nintendo Download Highlights for April 23rd

It’s a banner week for DLC on the eShop, between the wide release of Smash Bros.’ Mewtwo and new Mario Kart DLC. That’s on top of the traditional new releases and discounts. The final pack of DLC launched this morning for Mario Kart 8, including two new cups and three new racers inspired by Animal Crossing. After launching early for Club Nintendo affiliates last week, Mewtwo is now out for everyone. The Virtual Console gets Mario Kart DS, unfortunately sans the local multiplayer it was so popular for, so proceed with caution. Finally, the 3DS gets a Minecraft-alike with the full version of Cube Creator 3D. So get in there, and rev up those engines.
