It’s a fairly big week for the European Nintendo Download as a number of new games are releasing this week on Wii U, 3DS, and DSi. The biggest releases are those of Baseball and Boxing coming to the Wii Sports Club and One Piece: Unlimited World RED releasing on 3DS and Wii U. In addition, Mario Power Tennis will be the newest GBA Virtual Console release.

Check out the full list of games and sales below. All events are happening on June 26th unless noted otherwise. Game descriptions come directly from the press release.

Nintendo eShop on Wii U

Wii Sports Club: Baseball - Nintendo Download | oprainfall

  • Wii Sports Club: Baseball + Boxing – Double Sport-Pass

Game Description: 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 have been released individually as downloads featuring HD graphics, enhanced controls via Wii MotionPlus technology, as well as a much-requested online multiplayer versus mode.

In Baseball, the use of the Wii Remote Plus controller enables novice hitters and expert sluggers alike greater control and precision when going for that all-important home run. In the field, pitching is performed by holding the GamePad upright, with the action taking place in first-person view. Different types of pitch can be selected to attempt to bamboozle the batsman, but it’s down to you to adjust the power and aim of your throw. If the opponent does manage to return your pitch, try to keep the centre of the GamePad aimed at the ball, as a catching opportunity may even come your way…

With Boxing, bobbing and weaving your way to victory is now more fun and challenging than ever before, with players able to use one Wii Remote Plus controller in each hand to allow for more precise offensive and defensive manoeuvres. Before you enter the ring and represent your regional club online however, don’t forget to hone your technique by taking on Skill Shaper challenges such as Speed Bag, which requires players to keep an eye on an overhead display and pull off the right punches in the order instructed, or Pro Puncher, where players must use speed and accuracy to smash targets that appear in front of them

Baseball and Boxing will be coming to the Wii Sports Club on June 27th for €9.99/£8.99/CHF 14.00. In addition, a 48-hour Free Trial for all sports will be available upon release. The Day Pass is also available for €1.99/£1.79/CHF 2.80.
