Do you want to be the very best? Like no one ever was? This Nintendo eShop update will provide your real test, as training Pokémon is your cause!
Wario Land: Shake It!, Wario’s final side-scroller, has crashed on the Wii U. Built off of Wario Land 4’s templet, Shake It! contains five continents littered with wealth for Wario to loot. Three hidden treasures are waiting to be discovered in each level, and each act also contains three missions to clear, which will require replays. While the levels are straightforward in their design, Wario himself is a joy to control, with all his signature abilities accounted for. So join Captain Syrup, and embark on a vivacious escapade!
Excitebike 64 is the latest Nintendo 64 title to grace the Wii U Virtual Console. Six motorcyclists are competing on 20 racetracks, with multiplayer and a track builder to supply you with even more to do! Some nice bonuses are included, too, especially if you’re a longtime Excitebike fan.
Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon, the newest generation of the multimedia franchise, are about to launch on the Nintendo 3DS. I’m sure you explored every nook and cranny of the Special Demo Version, but the complete Alola region will be open on Friday, with new Pokémon to catch, more Trainers to defeat, and a new adventure to face. Are you eager to use the newly discovered Z-Moves? I pre-ordered a copy of Sun, so I hope to battle you all online. If you’re on the fence, then check out my review.
Swapdoodle, also for the Nintendo 3DS, is a free-to-download communication app. You can send your friends messages, and add-on packs can be bought that’ll teach you how to draw Nintendo characters. Swapdoodle also serves as the return of the fan-favorite Swapnote character Nikki.
