Nintendo Download for 2/26/2015: The Nintendo eShop is going bananas this week

There are quite a few games going up on the eShops this week, but the big releases all relate to a particular series: Donkey Kong.  This week we have all three Donkey Kong Land games hit the 3DS Virtual Console as well as all three Donkey Kong Country games hit the Wii U’s Virtual Console.  This is huge, especially for me as I only picked up Donkey Kong Country 2 on the Wii’s Virtual Console and I think all three were eventually taken down for some reason (likely due to ownership rights since the games were made by Rare).

Now that all three are on the Wii U I definitely plan to pick them up.  I’ve also played a couple of the Donkey Kong Land games that original came out on the Game Boy and enjoyed those as well.  On top of that, if you pick up at least one of the DKC or DKL games, you’ll get 30% off of Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze on the Wii U eShop or 30% off of Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D on the 3DS eShop.  This offer lasts until March 3rd at 8:59am PT.

Elsewhere on the eShops we have IRONFALL Invasion on the 3DS.  IRONFALL Invasion is a third-person shooter where you’re equipped with an arsenal of weapons and must repel an alien robot invasion.  You can play for free and purchase DLC today.  You can also check out Titan Attacks where you must single-handedly turn back an invading Titan army.
