Sorry deKay, I couldn't wait.

From http://www.nintendolife.com/news/2015/12/nintendo_download_24th_december_europe

Note the pooey brown colour for SM64DS - it's still a great game, but it's not been properly optimised from what I hear so there's no analogue movement on the stick, only the screen.

Wii U eShop

Kung Fu FIGHT! (Nostatic Games, €1.99 / £1.49) - The second release from this studio to make its way to Wii U, this has a similar visual style to The Quiet Collection but is a twitch-reaction runner; there are multiple difficulty modes available, too. We gave this a recommendation in our Kung Fu FIGHT! review.

Wii U Virtual Console

Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars (Nintendo, €7.99 / £5.49) - This Squaresoft-developed title was the start of an era; RPG-style experiences featuring Mario are a regular occurrence nowadays, and they have this SNES release to thank. It's a thoroughly charming and memorable experience that we wrote about recently, and we'll bring you a review soon.

Super Mario 64 DS (Nintendo, €9.99 / £8.99) - The original is often lauded as one of the greatest and most influential games of all time, and this re-make on DS was certainly a showcase for the portable's capabilities. This iteration introduced new content that included playable Luigi, Yoshi and Wario characters, though we felt it didn't live up to its source material in our original review.

3DS eShop

Japanese Rail Sim 3D Journey to Kyoto (Sonic Powered Co., €1.00 / £1.00 until 7th January, then €14.99 / £12.99) - The latest entry in this series in which you gently guide your train around the rails, this may have some appeal to Nintendo fans as it takes place on the Eizan Electric Railway around the company's home city. Despite that potential charm, however, we were critical of this one in our review.

Ocean Runner (Teyon, €2.99 / £2.69) - With fish breeds that conveniently echo quite a few of those found in Finding Nemo, this is a runner (swimmer?) with a top down perspective and online leaderboards to boot. We'll take a deep breath and dive in for a review.

Well, that's what Nintendolife say.

Not sure it's worth even that ...


Just like in Journey to Suburbs #1, the "game" requires the player to control the train via two handles: the Master Controller (mapped to the D-Pad) that serves the purpose to adjust the throttle of the train, and the brake handle (mapped to the ABXY buttons), which well… controls the brakes. And just like the previous iteration, instead of having precise control of the speed, the designers of the game decided to give the player only four presets, and they are all useless - either the train goes too fast or too slow.

Not sure why they have bothered with Mario 64 DS when the N64 is available. What madman would choose the DS version.

I realise it's not exactly the same situation, but I was thinking along similar lines last week with regard New Super Mario Bros DS given that the Wii U can play NSMBWii.

But NSMB and NSMB Wii are completely different games. Mario 64DS is just a bastardised, broken, modification of Mario 64.
