Hello there readers of the Nintendo Weekly, it has been a while since the last post update but without divulging into unnecessary details let us take this opportunity to discuss some recent releases and of course the ones coming to one of your beloved consoles very soon. Since my absence has likely resulted in you poor souls feeling undoubtedly lost in the wonderful magical world of Nintendo, below this post you will see some of March and April’s top releases that might just have slipped through the net which you can pick up this very moment.

Nintendo Wii U: March to present big hitters

  • OlliOlli
  • Mario vs Donkey Kong: Tipping Stars
  • Trine: Enchanced Edition
  • Mario Party 10
  • Super Mario 64
  • Yoshi’s Island DS

There were of course several other titles released in the last month, however the above are of a special caliber and so I have deemed them worthy of recognition. If you have some friends, family members, or a dog that can play games, then you would be wise to check Mario Party 10 out for all its party game insanity. Platformer fans have much to get through too, and should look forward to spending many hours pushing through some great platforming adventures. If the bottom two seemed a little familiar, that is because they totally are. Nintendo has finally welcomed DS and Super Nintendo 64 emulation to its baby, so expect to see more great classics hitting the Wii U in the months to come.

Nintendo 3DS: March to present big hitters

  • OlliOlii
  • Mario vs Donkey Kong: Tipping Stars
  • 3D Outrun
  • Code Name S.T.E.A.M
  • Boxboy
  • Pokemon Rumble World

Much like the Wii U, the 3DS also had its fair show of noteworthy titles which deserve a second look at to say the least. The biggest game to come out of the last month is probably Code Name S.T.E.A.M however there are certainly some other gems to be found. Fans of the speedy Sega classic Outrun will be delighted to see it returning in glorious 3D. Some more platforming goodness can be found on the go as well with the likes of OlliOlli and Boxboy being a couple of standout titles. Boxboy, is a simplistic puzzle platformer developed by the genius minds that gave us Kirby and the Rainbow Curse as well as many more loved Nintendo classics. As you might be able to see, the last month has been relatively quiet but far from dead, be sure to take a look at each of the titles which have been listed above.

As for this coming week, Wii U gamers do not have all that much to look forward to excluding a few classics which might warrant another shot. 3DS players however will finally have access to what many call one of the best RPG’s ever made, remastered in 3D Xenoblade Chronicles 3D shall finally be hitting North American shores, bringing with it some kick ass cheesy Japanese action gameplay set to hook you for dozens of hours.

Our Recommendation:

This week without a single shred of doubt has one clear winner, and unfortunately it does not reside on the Nintendo Wii U. Wii U gamers are not going completely without however, thanks to a couple of DS games making their way over to Wii U providing some great portable experiences for the big screen. Both Yoshi Touch & Go and WarioWare: Touched! are now available. If the DS was never really a console that you were a huge fan of though, then fear not, because unique space adventure Affordable Space Adventures has made its way to the eShop, and certainly seems to offer that cutesy indie charm.

The 3DS as stated above, is the winner this week. Xenoblade Chronicles 3D will be available from Friday. If you have never seen the game for yourself, be sure to checkout the link to the game located below and take a look at the trailer. If you have even a passing interest in realtime JRPG combat, then the game cannot be recommended enough.
