Nothing to See in This Week's Nintendo Download, Wii Gamers

Doesn't it just figure. I modify the format of the Nintendo Download to included video and demos in order to present a larger look at Nintendo's downloadable offerings, and they find a way to knock it down to three entries again.

It's definitely a slow download week for Nintendo. We've got a 3DS puzzler, a DSiWare dress-up dolly game, and a Death Cab for Cutie video that won't even hit the Nintendo Video service until Saturday.

Still, that 3DS puzzler does look rather interesting. Ketzal's Corridors is a sort of 3D Tetris riff in which the player must rotate a block to avoid obstacles as it plunges down some sort of tunnel-thingy. A corridor, if you will. That's the sort of quality entertainment that could keep me in the bathroom far longer than I should stay.

And then there's Anne's Doll Studio: Tokyo Collection, a DSiWare title that could keep a darker, creepier person in the bathroom far longer than they should stay.

I suppose it's for the best. No one ever brings their Wii into the bathroom.
