- Lost Reavers – Free to Play – Now this is interesting; Bandai Namco’s free-to-play shooter has gone from beta to for-real, meaning fans can now play the final, finished version of the game! We’ll definitely be giving this one a look in the coming days and shoot a review your way, soon.
- Mini Mario & Friends: amiibo Challenge – Free to Play – Another free-to-play title, this game had originally been available only as an incentive for purchasing a new Amiibo at retail. It’s supposed to play like the Mario vs. Donkey Kong series, so we’ll give it a whirl and let you know soon if the game is able to live up to its pedigree.
Wii U Virtual Console
