The Nintendo download spectrum is pretty stacked this week, with digital titles available across all three of the Big N's current platforms. Check out this week's games below, and prepare to have your mind blown by one eShop title in particular.

First off is Real Bout Fatal Fury 2: The Newcomers. This old school 2D fighter will run you 900 Wii Points. It's a solid title, and if you're a fan of these retro fighting games, maybe you should check this one out.

Now it's time for the mind-blowing game. The "Denpa" Men: They Came by Wave is … weird. But it's weird in that awesome Japanese way. Just watch the trailer and you'll see what I mean. The game is available on the 3DS eShop for $9.99 and will give you some offbeat dungeon crawling gameplay for your cash. There's also Hitori by Nikoli, which is Sudoku, for $9.99. Last is the Game Boy puzzle game Quarth for $2.99. It's like Space Invaders meets Tetris, which is actually quite interesting.

Last on the menu is DSiWare with Kart Krashers. It's an action racer, but it only supports one player. That said, I read a positive review of the game, so it may be pretty cool. If you want to check it out, it's available for 500 DSi Points ($4.99 if you're playing it on your 3DS).

Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment'sLEGO The Lord of the Rings game is now available across North America for Nintendo DS, Nintendo 3DS, and PlayStation Vita, giving players a chance to experience the epic adventure to save Middle-earth in LEGO form.

The game tells the epic story of the Fellowship's journey across the imaginative world created by J.R.R. Tolkien, but with the added fun, humor, and creativity that comes with the LEGO game franchise.

“With LEGO The Lord of the Rings, we are taking players on a truly remarkable adventure that is more epic than any they’ve experienced before in a LEGO game,” said TT Games managing director Tom Stone. “The game has a wonderful cast of characters, dramatic battles, and amazing locations, all of which bring The Lord of the Rings story to life in a uniquely LEGO way that the entire family will enjoy together.”

Iconic scenes from the books and films, like Helms Deep, The Shire, and Mount Doom, will be recreated in LEGO fashion. You'll also enjoy playing as blocky versions of Frodo, Aragorn, Gandalf, Legolas, and others as you traverse these lands, solving puzzles and collecting a variety of weapons and magical items.

Although the game is out today for handheld devices, it won't launch on Xbox 360, PS3, Wii, or PC until November 13, 2012.

Another week has passed, so Nintendo has unleashed yet another offering of digital downloads. Is there anything worthwhile in this latest set of titles? Find out right here.

Sengoku 2 is an old school action game originally released on Neo Geo. The game is now available on the Wii Virtual Console for 900 Wii Points. All you really need to know about this one is that you get to play as a ninja dog.

On 3DS we've got quite a few options, starting with Dress to Play: Cute Witches for $3.99. This game tasks you with dressing up little witches and then setting out for adventure across levels where your goal is to collect stuff and avoid other stuff while flying on a broom. There's also Johnny Hotshot, a target shooting title that's priced at $5.99. Other 3DS eShop options include a downloadable version of Paper Mario: Sticker Star for $39.99, Pokedex 3D Pro for $14.99, and a demo for Disney Epic Mickey: The Power of Illusion.

Next up is DSiWare. The first game on tap is Come On! Dragons, which bears no relation to Imagine Dragons. For 200 DSi Points ($1.99 for 3DS users), you can battle dragons through the touchscreen. Then there's Smart Girl's Playhouse Mini, a mini-game collection that seriously makes me wonder why I even bother with this weekly feature. Oh, that one costs 500 DSi Points ($4.99 on the eShop).

It's that time again: new Nintendo downloads, you guys! This week we've got digital offerings on the Wii, 3DS, and DS. Sadly, the Wii U is missing in action, but let's hope that changes soon. Now, let's talk games!

Where on Earth is Carmen Sandiego? She's on WiiWare, apparently. Carmen Sandiego Adventures in Math: The Island of Diamonds is available for 600 Wii Points and features geometry and fractions. Math, people!

The 3DS eShop has two games this week, and the first is Aero Porter for $4.99. Here you're tasked with sorting luggage using the touchscreen and getting rid of hazardous items. Additionally, old school Pac-Man lands on the eShop for $4.99. With all due respect to the spherical mascot, this classic ain't got nothin' on Pac-Man Championship Edition DX.

DSiWare has two offerings of its own, as well. Bloons TD 4 is a simple-looking tower defense game that sports a price tag of 500 DSi Points ($4.99 on the eShop). Last is Invasion of the Alien Blobs! which looks like a touchscreen shooter … thing. This one will run you 200 DSi Points ($1.99 for 3DS players).
