Nintendo Download for 12/31/2015: 1080 Snowboarding Santa Factory

More On: Nintendo Download

It's New Year's Eve but Nintendo has one last batch of digital content to serve up. This time it's N64 classic 1080 Snowboarding on the Wii U Virtual Console. On the 3DS we get Puzzler World 2013 and Atlantic Quest. There are also some holiday sales running for titles like Runbow, Nano Assault EX, Santa Factory and Real Heroes Firefighter 3D. You can see all of the titles and discounts after the jump.

I have to be honest, 2015 was a pretty disappointing year to be a Nintendo fan, eShop inclusive. Outside of the spectacular Xenoblade Chronicles X there wasn't a whole lot to get excited for. Here's hoping Nintendo got the confusion out of their system, and the NX brings a renewed focus and quality to their output in 2016.

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.
