This week’s Nintendo downloads bring two more Virtual Console games. The Wii Virtual Console release is Mega Man X2. The SNES game is out today for 800 Wii Points ($8). Meanwhile, the 3DS Virtual Console gets Donkey Kong Jr. (NES) for $5.


On the Nintendo eShop, this week’s “original” eShop release is Mad Dog McCree, an FMV lightgun-style game originally released in 1990 for arcades. It’s been ported to several other systems since, and the eShop release costs $8.


Finally, this week also brings a free demo of the Nintendo 3DS version of The Amazing Spider-Man. Unlike most 3DS demos, this one can only be played ten times.
