The Most Compelling Image I Could Find to Represent This Week's Nintendo Download

REMIX! This week sees the release of only two new games across Nintendo's three platforms, signaling a time of change for the Weekly Nintendo download.

Oh don't worry, it's not going away or anything. It's just expanding to include whatever new videos the 3DS is getting in any given week, along with demos released for existing downloadable titles.

What that all boils down to is that instead of this week being just a DSiWare pool title and 3DS soccer, there's also a pair of demos for the Wii and 3DS and a new music video for OK Go's "Skyscrapers."

Different crap, same day!
