In today's Nintendo Direct a couple of new downloads were given immediate releases in Japan. One of these is Super Mario Galaxy on the Wii U eShop, but there's a fresh option for 3DS owners too in the form of a new Dr. Mario title for the handheld.

Also featuring Dr. Luigi, this new entry in the series promises a range of modes previously seen in the franchise and some tweaks, including one mode where you play with the system on its side. A gauge also unleashes power-ups that can wipe out entire rows, viruses of a certain colour or simply act as an old-fashioned bomb.

We think it also has a mode where two players use one system, but that seems tricky, but there's most definitely online multiplayer and Download Play options.

Out now in Japan, it's safe to assume that this will spread to the West relatively soon.
