It’s mostly quiet on the Wii U front. The home console receives only one game, but even that is a re-release. However, it is a re-release of the Game Boy Advance game, Wario Land 4. Though technically the fifth Wario Land game (counting Virtual Boy Wario Land), Wario Land 4 was well received when it released back in 2001. You can buy the game today for $7.99.
While the Wii U has only one release, the 3DS (and even DSiWare) gets quite a bit of love today. We get two big indie digital releases in The Denpa Men 3: The Rise of Digitoll and Grinsia as well as Virtual Console releases for Mega Man II and Mega Man III for the Game Boy. You can actually check out our review of Grinsia right now.
Along with the new releases, we have a few sales to announce. First is a sale involving Atlus games Etrian Odyssey Untold: The Millennium Girl and Etrian Odyssey IV: Legends of the Titan. This sale will go from May 12th to May 19th. In addition, the 3DS will see sales for Aqua Moto Racing 3D and Joindots games 3D Games Collection, Jewel Match 3, and Murder on the Titanic. These sales will start today. On the Wii U, Trine 2: Director’s Cut is half off until May 26th.
You can check out the full press release below for the full list of games.
