Party like it's last decade with Mario Strikers and Super Meat Boy! From Nintendolife:

 

Wii U eShop

 

Super Meat Boy (Blitworks, €11.20 / £10.40 until 26th May, normally €14.00 / £13.00) - After being originally planned for WiiWare before the services' restrictions helped to scupper the idea, Team Meat's iconic title has finally made its way to Nintendo hardware. Brutal difficulty but tight, satisfying platfoming are hallmarks of the title on other platforms, and our imminent review will let you know what we think of this version.

 

Color Symphony 2 (Remimory, €9.99 / £7.99) - A rather intriguing puzzle platformer that's previously made its mark on PC, this utilises changes in the colour of the stage to add and remove platforms and obstacles. The concept looks similar in principle to Runbow, albeit slower paced and with a different emphasis in its gameplay; we'll bring you a review soon.

 

PIXEL SLIME U (RCMADIAX, €2.99 / £2.69) - This budget title utilises a single button for jumping an dodging obstacles, with the green blob in question moving automatically. It's a score chaser with a few twists throughout its 40 levels, but a few issues meant we stopped just short of giving a recommendation in our Pixel Slime U review.

 

 

Wii U Virtual Console

 

Mario Strikers Charged Football (Nintendo, €19.99 / £17.99) - A game that helped solidify the reputation of Next Level Games, and notable for supporting decent online play on Wii (which is unlikely to be supported here), this wacky take on football incorporates typical Mario shenanigans with solid arcade gameplay. We gave this a strong recommendation in our original Mario Strikers Charged Football review.

 

 

Wii U DLC

 

LEGO MARVEL'S Avengers: All-New, All-Different Doctor Strange Pack (WB Games, €2.99/ £2.50)

 

 

Wii U eShop Temporary Discounts

 

Resident Evil Revelations (Capcom, €9.99 / £7.99 until 26th May, normally €49.99 / £39.99)

DuckTales: Remastered (Capcom, €5.99 / £4.79 until 26th May, normally €14.99 / £11.99)

Dungeons & Dragons: Chronicles of Mystara (Capcom, €4.94 / £3.95 until 26th May, normally €14.99 / £11.99)

Word Search by POWGI (Lightwood Games, €5.99 / £4.49 until 19th May, normally €7.99 / £5.99)

STEEL RIVALS (nuGAME, €4.99 / £4.49 until 19th May, normally €6.99 / £5.99)

 

 

3DS eShop

 

WordsUp! Academy (CoderChild, €2.99/ £2.69) - The 3DS has some solid options in terms of word games, and CoderChild is now making this pitch with a title that offers six different modes and multiple languages, with the added bonus of online leaderboards. We'll use our words to let you know what we think in a review.

 

 

New Nintendo 3DS Virtual Console

 

Contra III: The Alien Wars (Konami, €7.99 / £7.19) — Originally known in Europe as Super Probotector: Alien Rebels, the U.S. version arrives in Europe once again on Nintendo's portable. It has plenty of manic run and gun action either in solo or co-op play, and is a stand-out action game from the Super NES era. We gave this an explosive recommendation in our Contra III: The Alien Wars review.

You will love them, though I believe the trilogy removes some of the 2D sprite work (of GBA/DS) for 3D models or something. Wiper (who is never wrong) says it's great regardless.

Yes. And get DD too.

Not really bought much from the shop for my 3DS so a bit unfamiliar with how it works but is it a case that Contra 3 will only work on the NEW 3DS and not the regular one? Only asking as I've got a friend who's got a regular 3DS and I'm sure he'd love it.

It's already been said a few times, but yes, the Phoenix Wright trilogy is absolutely worth picking up. One of my favourite series of all time, and there's not a weak entry among those first three titles. Great writing, great characters, and while the cases can sometimes be a little frustrating (particularly when you can see a solution before you're 'allowed' to and can't act on it), for the most part the gameplay is enjoyably tense.

 

(And once you've played and loved those games, you owe it to yourself to get your hands on the DS game Ghost Trick, from the same designer. Also brilliantly written, and with the added bonus of some genuinely great little puzzles)
