Electronic Theatre ImageThis week sees a number of critically acclaimed titles making their way onto Nintendo’s digital platforms, beginning with the groundbreaking sequel to The Legend of Zelda, The Legend of Zelda II: The Adventure of Link. Also available from today is a demo version of Rising Star Games’ forthcoming Shifting World and a Wii edition of Metal Slug X.

Often criticised for its efforts to deliver more immediate combat alongside its world exploration themes, The Legend of Zelda II: The Adventure of Link is now widely regarded as a stepping stone that bridged the gap between technologies and gave rise to some of the most fantastic adventure experiences videogames have ever managed to produce. The Legend of Zelda II: The Adventure of Link is available from today as a downloadable title for Nintendo 3DS.

Also available today is Gamelion’s Crazy Kangaroo, Bookstore Dream from CIRCLE Entertainment and yet more downloadable content (DLC) for Square Enix’s Theatrhythm: Final Fantasy. Details on all of this week’s new releases are available below and Electronic Theatre will keep you updated with all the latest additions to the various Nintendo digital channels.
