Wii U Virtual Console
Dr. Mario (Nintendo, $4.99) The classic NES version of the puzzle game lands on the Wii U, bringing some retro "vitamin capsule" colour matching to the latest home console. It's the first appearance of this version on the Virtual Console (in North America), with WiiWare getting a fresh release and the Game Boy iteration landing on the 3DS; we felt it was a tough sell in our Dr. Mario review.

Wii U DLC
Sonic Lost World (Sega, free) Following previous Yoshi-themed free DLC, owners of this Wii U version can now download The Legend of Zelda Zone at no cost. It promises Sonic in a Link outfit, cameo appearances from Link and a more open-world approach to level design. Did we say it was free? Yes, yes we did.

3DS eShop
Skater Cat (Teyon, $4.99) If you like happy looking cats, this may be a game for you. Developed by FUN UNIT, this looks like a side-scrolling runner with 25 levels to take on; you can also exchange and race Ghost times through StreetPass and SpotPass, as well as race with your Mii. We'll see if it leaves us feline good (apologies) in our review.
I am an Air Traffic Controller Airport Hero Hawaii (Sonic Powered Co., $19.99) There's a proper game title for you, seizing the crown as possibly the longest on the 3DS eShop. As it explains, you are an air traffic controller, and a hero, in Hawaii. We'll get to work in this air traffic sim for a review.
Cube Tactics (Teyon, $4.99) Only Nintendo knows why it's listed this title again after its initial release two weeks ago, but we will too. We rather enjoyed it in our Cube Tactics review.
My Style Studio: Hair Salon (Cypronia, $4.99) This was released last year, but is in today's update email along with a fresh release date on the official website. Like with Cube Tactics we're confused, but in the meantime you can read our My Style Studio: Hair Salon review.
3DS Virtual Console
Clu Clu Land (Nintendo, $4.99) This is an action puzzle game from the early days of the NES, in which you manoeuvre bubbles by throwing them around the stage. This can also be played with a friend, but the fiddly controls contribute to an underwhelming impact, as explained in our Wii U Virtual Console Clu Clu Land review.

3DS eShop Demo

Ubisoft eShop Discounts
Ubisoft has discounted 18 titles on both Wii U and 3DS until 31st March, check out all of the details here.

DSiWare
I am in the Movie (Moragami, 200 Points) This looks like a rather fun app to make use of your DSi camera (or 3DS in 2D), in which you film yourself and then filter the footage with a variety of iconic movie effects. We'll practice our Oscar acceptance speech and work on a review.

Wow, no one seems to be excited for this update. I can't imagine why.

Another subpar week. Is Nintendo effing with us at this point?

I can't believe they are listing old games as new releases. Have things gotten that bad?

What's the point of Dr. Mario NES when Dr. Luigi is out?

What a joke.

Funny, the only thing I'm downloading this week is free. Too bad the Link outfit probably won't carry into the main game.

Bump for more people to bask in the glow of another rewarding update full of surprises and delights.

Oh, and they changed the eShop so that the Villains have taken over! How adorable. Perhaps the villains stole the games from March and April.

Good for the Nintendo 3DS and DSiWare because it's shop carries over the the new one. Huge fan of the

Nintendo does what Wii U don't (carries old shop to the new one, has demos of its games AND lets you use the new controller on the old system).
