I love just stumbling across games. DSiWare holds plenty of Nintendo published titles that Nintendo lets slip by unadvertised. It’s unfortunate, but c’est la vie. So instead, I present to you Spotto!, a DSiWare game developed by Intelligent Systems. While it doesn’t compare to the pricing and quality of similar app store titles, Spotto! does a decent job of bringing the pick-up play experience to the Nintendo DS.

Nintendo suckered me into buying a game. So what do you do when you already have a massive list of uncompleted titles in your back catalog? Justify your purchase by writing an article about it! With this weeks Nintendo Download, I look at Nintendo’s e-mail adverts as a place of inspiration of where Nintendo should go with trying to push their content. Will it launch the 3DS’ eShop into a huge success? No, but it definitely couldn’t hurt to help draw people into the store.

With the eShop, Nintendo launches its third full fledged digital download service. As with every other console based digital distribution, it’s been an uphill battle to make the service as appealing as possible to both the consumers and developers. And while there isn’t much in terms of 3DS software available on the service as of yet, DSiWare’s back catalog gives us a glimpse of exactly how the service works.
You can see what Nintendo has already gotten right and wrong with their eShop over on VGChartz’s gamrFeed.
The 3DS’ eShop is pathetically small in North America. Outside of free content, there’s really only one title worth looking at – Super Mario Land. While Japan enjoys a decent launch list, we’re left with nothing. But fear not! Nintendo 3DS will be almost completely backwards compatible with DSiWare content.
Over on VGChartz’ gamerFeed you can find a list of DSiWare titles to survive the slim service launch.
