Not a huge week in the Nintendo Download to start out the month of February, at least not in scope. In terms of quantity, on the other hand, nine isn't so bad.
Golfers on the go can download the new Express version of True Swing Golf on the DSi, as well as staples such as 5 in 1 Solitaire and DOWNTOWN TEXAS HOLD'EM. The brain-training types have Move your Brain Rollway Puzzle, and Legends of Exidia seems like just the thing for traditional gamers.
WiiWare also has 5 in 1 Solitaire, plus an action-puzzler in Tumblebugs 2. But odds are, most eyes are going to be on the fifth and final chapter of Tales of Monkey Island.
And finally, from the oldschool comes one of the stars of the upcoming Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing, Alex Kidd, as he takes on the legions of ninja which inhabit Shinobi World. Interestingly enough, this Master System game was never released in Japan.

"This extensive lineup will keep players busy throughout the fall and into 2010," said Cammie Dunaway, Nintendo of America's executive vice president of Sales & Marketing. "Shoppers know that Nintendo offers fun for everyone in the household."
Nintendo also mentions the upcoming black Wii Remote, Nunchuk, and MotionPlus as being available "this holiday season," though they don't get any more specific than that.
