Nintendo fans, if you’ve got an Apple mobile device, Nintendo’s got you hooked up this week! If not, well, maybe some of the other highlights below could catch your eye.


Super Mario Run – free to download, $10 for full game

Mario’s very first mobile game has finally arrived! Don’t be fooled by the simple touch controls: this runner was made by Nintendo’s Mario team and features extensive content. Also, who can say no to the return of Ninji? Remember, this is currently only available on Apple devices.

Wii U eShop

Excitebots: Trick Racing – $19.99

This re-release of an oft-forgotten Wii racer is being given a second chance. In a word, Excitebots is crazy: expect to start throwing pies and go bowling while in control of animal-themed vehicles. If you’ve still got your Wii Wheel lying around, why not dust it off and master your grasshopper car skills?
