Nintendo Download: 12th September (Europe)
Posted by Thomas Whitehead
Dungeons & dragons, classic Mario, Toki Tori 2 with a + and more
It's Monday, which means Nintendo Download news for Europe. This week brings a modest number of titles, though they do include a long awaited Wii U download from Capcom, classic Mario, a major Toki Tori 2 update and the download arrival of the blue blur's most recent adventure on 3DS. Check out all of the details below.
Wii U eShop
Dungeons & Dragons: Chronicles of Mystara (Capcom, €14.99 / £11.99) — After a fairly lengthy delay due to issues with the submission process, this reworked release of two arcade classics finally comes to the Wii U. This should provide some classic beat 'em up action, with drop-in and drop-out online co-op, the ability to shake up the experience with House Rules, challenges, unlockables, online leaderboards and use of the GamePad's touch screen. We can only hope that the delays have been used to optimise the experience for the best results; our review will be with you very soon.
Wii U Virtual Console
Super Mario Bros. (Nintendo, €4.99 / £3.49) — This wasn't Mario's first appearance in gaming, but it was the title that propelled the mascot and 2D platforming to a whole new level. This original may stop you from running left and have some other quirks, but it's still very much worth playing, as our Super Mario Bros. 3DS eShop review explains. This is the US (60Hz) version of the game.
Wii U Update and Price Promotion
Toki Tori 2+ (Two Tribes, €8.99 / £7.79 until 19th September, normally €14.99 / £12.99) — This title will have a substantial update (free to current owners) that brings the Wii U version more in line with that released on the PC, with the developer aiming to address feedback from the launch day build. We'll bring you hands-on impressions of the update on 12th September, while those that buy the game from that date will receive the + version by default.
Secrets of the Titanic (Avanquest, €10.99 / £9.99) — Sailing onto the store a little late to truly capitalise on the 100 year anniversary of the Titanic's tragic sinking, this is a hidden-object puzzle-adventure game, not unlike previous entries based on the doomed vessel. We'll get our brains and spotting skills up to scratch to bring you a review.
3DS Retail Download
Sonic Generations (SEGA, €24.99 / £19.99)
