The big release this week in Nintendo downloads is obviously Square Enix’s follow-up to My Life as a King, Final Fantasy Chronicles: My Life as a Darklord for the WiiWare. I never got a chance to play My Life as a King, but I’m curious to play the sequel as I here it’s much of the same gameplay but with a few different elements.

The Virtual Console gets dissed this week as it lacks any downloads, but the WiiWare picks up the slack with two other downloads in Battle Poker and 5 Spots Party. The DSiWare gets on in the fun as well with another edition to the Art Style series with Zengage. Hit the jump for a description of each download and how much they’ll cost.
