Nintendo has released several new games on their download service Thursday, including few new DSiWare and 3DS eShop titles. No love for the Wii or Wii U this week, though anyone who picked up a system over the last week or so should have plenty to keep themselves busy. Our other editior Les just got his hands on a Wii U earlier in the week so he can vouch for the awesomeness of the new console first hand.
Simulation | LEVEL-5 International America, Inc. | Rated:E | $4.99
LEVEL-5 and Yoot Saito, from VIVARIUM Inc., team up to bring you AERO PORTER, an airport simulation and puzzle game that will have you sorting luggage, expanding your airport’s operations, and avoiding security mishaps! As your airport gains passengers and prestige, you’ll be faced with more and more planes to load and luggage to color code. And that’s to say nothing of all the special requests and suspicious packages you’ll have to deal with! It’s your job to put your airport on the map to help it grow from a few sleepy regional terminals to a bustling international hub. Exchange aircraft with your friends via StreetPass, get those planes loaded, and check your luggage on time! (For Nintendo 3DS™)
