Instructions for Singing and Dancing to the Nintendo Weekly Download Report Song
(1) Stand on your desk and sing that loudly as you read it, lifting first your left foot, and shaking it twice for "It's time again" -- and then your right foot, shaking it twice for "oh time" -- lifting the other leg for each section until you get to the end, and then turn around and shake your bum at your nearest co-worker for "the Nintendo Weekly Download Report! "
(2) Now repeat the process as many times as is necessary to deliver the news to each and every person in the room individually!
3D Classics: Kid Icarus
Relive Pit's first adventure in 3D Classics: Kid Icarus as you venture from the depths of the underworld up to the heights of the sky palace. Play in 2D or 3D as you face down the evil goddess Medusa.

I Must Run!
I Must Run! is a skill-based action running game. Jump across gaps between jail buildings, run through a subway station, and test your reflexes in a deadly dash over construction site cranes.

Once you have completed story mode, try to achieve the highest score in the never-ending run in six available levels: Jail, Subway, Sewers, Construction Site, Suburbs and Rooftops.

In addition to video games available at retail stores, Nintendo also offers a variety of content that people can download directly to their systems. Nintendo adds new titles to the Nintendo eShop for the Nintendo 3DS system, to the Nintendo DSi Shop for the Nintendo DSi system and to the Wii Shop Channel for the Wii console at 9 a.m. Pacific time on Thursdays.
The Nintendo eShop is a cash-based service and features games, applications and videos in both 2D and 3D. Users can add money to their virtual wallets using a credit card or by purchasing a Nintendo 3DS Prepaid Card at a retail store and entering the code from the card.
The Wii Shop Channel offers games and applications and uses Wii Points, which can be purchased via the Wii Shop Channel. The Nintendo DSi Shop offers games and applications and uses Nintendo DSi Points, which can be purchased in the Nintendo DSi Shop. A Nintendo Points Card can be purchased at retail locations. All points from one Nintendo Points Card must be redeemed in either the Wii Shop Channel or the Nintendo DSi Shop. They are not transferable and cannot be divided between the two systems.
Remember that Wii, Nintendo 3DS and Nintendo DSi feature parental controls that let adults manage some of the content their children can access.
