Another week and another selection of downloads are released for your gaming pleasure. This week sees one of 3DS’s best 2D platforming shooters now making its way over to Wii U, as well as our old friend Mario popping over, golf clubs in hand, ready to take you on again in an N64 sporting classic.
Wii U eShop
- Gunman Clive HD Collection – $3.99 – This should be a no-brainer for any Gunman Clive fan out there– both games presented in HD for Wii U and for less than four bucks! This wonderful 2D platform shooter with its unique art style and intense gameplay has already seen considerable success on 3DS and iOS. We’ll see how the remastered Wii U version stacks up in our upcoming review.
Wii U Virtual Console
- VS. Excitebike $4.99 – Previously only released in Japan, this was the Famicom Disk version of the original but with extra features such as new tracks, music, and most notably a track editor feature. Who needs Super Mario Maker? (Er…me!)
- Mario Golf – $9.99 – This excellent golf sim featuring Mario and co. was actually one of Mario’s earliest ventures into the world of sports. His first, Mario Tennis on Virtual Boy, wasn’t a great success to say the least, so this time Nintendo wanted to get it right. Enter N64 and Mario Golf and you get a fun and surprisingly realistic golf game with tons of extra features, modes, and characters to choose from.
