The Virtual Console services on both Wii U and New 3DS continue to be a source of entertainment for retro (and not so retro) fans, as Kirby brings a trifecta of games for his fans to enjoy. Beyond the pink puffball’s software trio, there’s also an interesting new tower defense game hitting 3DS. Read on for the full details!
Wii U Virtual Console
Kirby Mass Attack – $9.99
Kirby’s Epic Yarn – $19.99 – Yeah, buddy; here are a couple of excellent Kirby titles that every Wii U should be excited for. Kirby Mass Attack is a delightfully fun, touchscreen controls-only DS game that appeared toward the end of that handheld’s life. Players flick and tap a multitude of Kirby’s through the game’s adventure, taking advantage of the pink pugilist’s numbers as opposed to his copy abilities. That’s right, no traditional powers this time around! As for Kirby’s Epic Yarn, this was developer Good-Feel’s first yarn-centric Nintendo outing, and it also happens to be one of Kirby’s finest games. The difficulty level is docile, but the action and creativity is second to none. Give both of these games a look!
Gotta Protectors – $12.99 – This is an interesting looking title that merges tower defense-style gameplay with action and 8-bit aesthetics. There are 100 stages to tackle, six character classes, customizable items, and local co-op, just to name a few standout features. It certainly looks ambitious!
New 3DS Virtual Console
Kirby’s Dream Course – $7.99 – Completing the triple Kirby attack this week, Kirby’s Dream Course has landed on New 3DS this week. It isn’t the greatest Kirby title (I’d personally rank Epic Yarn and Mass Attack above this title), but it’s still a heck of a lot of fun. Imagine miniature golf with Kirby as the ball, sucking up copy abilities as he rolls along his way to each hole. The rock-solid gameplay one would expect of a Kirby game is on full display here in a quirky, unique title that easily warrants a play.
That’s it for this week! What are you going to download? Let us know in the comments!
