2015 is about over, but there’s one last eShop update before the new year kicks in. It’s a pretty quiet update, but for those who like winter and have fond memories of 1080 Snowboarding for the N64, the game is now available for the Wii U Virtual Console. Personally I’ll hold out for Wave Race 64; I like my H2o to be the liquid kind.
Also, if you haven’t given Runbow a try, it’s on sale now. See why it was one of our Best Games of 2015.
This week’s Nintendo Download includes the following featured content:
- Virtual Console on Wii U
- 1080° Snowboarding – Get ready to experience one of the first realistic snowboarding games ever created! In this Nintendo 64 classic, select from five characters, each with his or her own attributes and special tricks. Pick a snowboard that best suits your rider, and then head down the mountain and feel the sensation of speed that’ll make you forget all about the cold.

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 games weekly to the Nintendo eShop on the Wii U console and the Nintendo 3DS family of systems, the Nintendo DSi™ Shop for the Nintendo DSi system and the Wii™ Shop Channel for the Wii console.
The Nintendo eShop is a cash-based service that features a wide variety of content, including new and classic games, applications and demos. Users can add money to their account balances by using a credit card or purchasing a Nintendo eShop Card at a retail store and entering the code from the card. All funds from one card must be loaded in the Nintendo eShop on either Wii U or the Nintendo 3DS family of systems, but can be used in either Nintendo eShop if the systems are linked to a single Nintendo Network account.
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.
Remember that Wii U, Wii, Nintendo 3DS, Nintendo 3DS XL, Nintendo 2DS and Nintendo DSi feature parental controls that let adults manage some of the content their children can access. For more information about this and other features, visit http://www.nintendo.com/wiiu orhttp://www.nintendo.com/3ds.
