Nintendo has a historic batch of DLC this week, starting with Final Fantasy III
for the SNES Virtual Console (it's really FF VI from the main chronology, yeah the 90s were weird like that). We also get Kirby's Dream Land
for the 3DS virtual console. This game was Kirby's very first appearance, when he was designed as a kid-friendly platformer for the original Game Boy. Moto Xtreme
rounds out the headliners, with The Lost Town - The Dust, Boardwalk Ball Toss, Hearts Spades Euchre and Big Town Shoot Out comprising the original content this week.

The Lost Town - The Dust (eShop)
lood, silence and fear soak this lost town. Can you make it through the night?
In the year 2037, a small remote town in the South American Andes is cut off from the outside world by a mudslide. After a full week of heavy rain, a power outage causes a massive explosion at a biochemical military facility located on the outskirts of the town.
A beautiful girl named Chilia with red hair and deep red eyes emerges from the darkness. Possessing incredible combat skills, you must use her abilities to find survivors before nightfall. Other objectives include setting traps, collecting items and using various weapons to defeat unknown creatures. The more you battle, the more skills you gain. The danger level increases at nighttime, so you will need the help of survivors in the camp to protect it for a course of seven days. While you wait for the rescue team to arrive, you must fight off vicious creatures that are starving for their next meal.
