Nintendo Store updates moved to Thursday

House of Mario shifts virtual storefront additions to later in the week; WiiWare, Virtual Console, DSiWare, and 3DS eShop games included.

Gamers eager to get their hands on new downloadable Nintendo wares this morning were left empty handed but not because of the security issue that hit Nintendo Europe. The Japanese game giant today announced its plan to shift its downloadable store updates from Monday morning to Thursdays going forward.
A new Nintendo downloadable game will no longer help a "case of the Mondays."

The weekly update will include information about new additions to Nintendo's download hubs: WiiWare, DSiWare, the Virtual Console, and the recently launched eShop, which opened on June 6.

The most recent Nintendo Store Update arrived last Monday and brought puzzle game Ubongo to WiiWare and Go Series Picdun, Dreamwalker, and Cypronia's Crazy Cheebo: Puzzle Party to DSiWare. There were no Wii Virtual Console additions last week.
