Nintendo Download Update – 1080° Snowboarding, Molly Maggot

Nintendo_eShop_logoBeing New Year’s Eve and all, we didn’t expect much of a Nintendo eShop Update, so it’s not a surprise that the big release is the Virtual Console version of 1080° Snowboarding for the Wii U. But that’s okay, since it was definitely a fun N64 title when it was first released for the console.

Molly Maggot is apparently the sole new Wii U release this week, but there are a handful of sales and whatnot as well.

Take a look.

This week’s Nintendo Download includes the following featured content:

  • Virtual Console on Wii U
    • 1080o Snowboarding – Get ready to experience one of the first realistic snowboarding games ever created! In this Nintendo 64 classic, select from five characters, each with his or her own attributes and special tricks. Pick a snowboard that best suits your rider, and then head down the mountain and feel the sensation of speed that’ll make you forget all about the cold.
