Matt’s Pick of the Week: Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon

As of right now, I’m not sure when I will buy this game, but it’s easy for me to know out of all the games that have come out, this is the only that I want to buy. It may not be tomorrow or the day after, but sooner than later this will be the first Pokémon game I will have bought and played in a long time.

Pokémon Sun and Moon are obviously the highlight of this week’s Nintendo Download, but remember Swapnote? Its beefier cousin, Swapdoodle, is now available to download on 3DS systems for free. Much like Swapnote, Swapdoodle allows 3DS users to write 4-page notes to send to friends. The good news? Internet connectivity is back through SpotPass! The bad news? The paid content, though fairly cool, appears to be way overpriced. At $3 a pop, each add-on pack seems to come with stencils of familiar Nintendo characters, new note backgrounds, and additional colors to use in your hand-drawn notes.

Out on the Wii U Virtual Console this week are Wario Land: Shake It (Wii) and Excitebike 64 (N64).
