This Monday isn’t your typical Nintendo downloads day. Today, Nintendo has a few Valentine’s Day-themed games for those of you in the festive mood.

Up on the WiiWare are three different titles to choose from. Pucca’s kisses game (500 Wii points) will have you controlling Pucca on her quest to kiss Garu while she faces obstacles along the way. You can pick up the demo versions of chick chick BOOM (800 Wii points) and Chronos Twins DX (1,000 Wii points). The former title involves competing against a set of five other chicks as you toss objects of all shapes, sizes and variety at each other while the latter title sets players in two temporal scenarios while controlling Nec.

The DSiWare has three titles of its own. Treasure Hunter X (200 DSi points) puts players in the role of Tyrol the treasure hunter as he explores caverns and hunts down treasure. Oscar in Toyland 2 (500 DSi points) involves Oscar running through 7 different worlds in search of baby Oscars while armed with a yo-yo. Finally, the goal in Panda Craze (500 DSi points) is to guide Tik-Ling back to the bamboo forest while collecting magical lanterns to unlock each next level in the puzzle adventure game.
