This week’s Nintendo Download for Europe includes the following new content. Game descriptions are copied directly from the press release.
Nintendo eShop on Wii U:
Wii Sports™ Club: Day Pass; Wii Sports™ Club: Bowling – Single-Sport Pass; Wii Sports™ Club: Tennis – Single-Sport Pass – The five beloved sports from the original Wii Sports – bowling, tennis, baseball, boxing and golf – make a dramatic and competitive return on Wii U! The games are being released individually as downloads featuring HD graphics, enhanced controls via Wii MotionPlus technology, as well as a much-requested online multiplayer versus mode.
Tennis and Bowling will be the first two sports available from Nintendo eShop on 7th November, with Boxing, Baseball and Golf scheduled to launch in the months ahead. Wii U owners who download Wii Sports Club will get a trial pass that will let them play any available games for a 24-hour period from when the Wii Sports Club game is started.
Once the trial period ends, players can purchase a Day Pass on Nintendo eShop for €1.99 (£1.79) to play all available sports for a 24-hour period, or can buy permanent access to individual sports (Single-Sport Pass) for €9.99 (£8.99) each.
Batman: Arkham Origins – Arkham Origins is the next instalment in the blockbuster Batman: Arkham videogame franchise. Developed by WB Games Montréal, the game features an expanded Gotham City and introduces an original prequel storyline set several years before the events of Batman: Arkham Asylum and Batman: Arkham City, the first two critically acclaimed games of the franchise. Taking place before the rise of Gotham City’s most dangerous criminals, the game showcases a young, unrefined Batman as he faces the defining moment of his early career and sets his path to becoming the Dark Knight. This game will be available to download from November 7th, and will cost €59.99 (£49.99).
Toki Tori – Toki Tori is the first of three Two Tribes classics to arrive on Nintendo eShop for Wii U. Next up will be 3D puzzler RUSH and retro platformer EDGE. While the classic gameplay has remained intact, Toki Tori has been adapted to make use of the Wii U GamePad, allowing for off-TV play and optional touch controls. The gameplay in Toki Tori is a blend of two genres. While it looks like a platform game, it’s a puzzle game at heart. To progress through the game, the player must pick up each egg in a level using a set number of tools. Players will have to look and plan ahead carefully while using items such as the Telewarp, Freeze-o-Matic and InstantRock™. Additional tools are gradually introduced as the player progresses through the game’s 80+ levels covering five unique worlds. This game will be available to download from November 7th and will initially cost €1.99 (£1.79), before going up to €3.99 (£3.59) on December 6th.
