Virtual Console on Wii U
- Mach Rider
“Earth, the year 2112. A lone motorcycle warrior is all that stands between invaders and survivors. You are Mach Rider! In the main Fighting Course mode, race through winding highways and take out the enemies using your machine guns or by barging them into obstacles. In Endurance Course, pit your survival skills against the clock, or try Solo Course for an enemy-free ride. Mach Rider also includes a Design mode, enabling you to create your own courses on which to race.”
Mach Rider will be available for €4.99/£3.49/CHF 7.00. This is the US version of the game.
- Mega Man Battle Chip Challenge
“Your favourite characters from the Megaman Battle Network universe are back to duke it out in the Battle Chip Grand Prix! Face multiple opponents on your way to the ultimate prize: an extremely rare Battle Chip! Command your Net Navi using Battle Chips of various elemental types: fire, water, electricity or wood. Choose your Battle Chips wisely, depending on the material in the arena; metal aids electric attacks, while grass weakens them. As well as the Grand Prix, you can also battle in one-off bouts or create your own tournament!”
Mega Man Battle Chip Challenge will be available for €6.99/£6.29/CHF 9.80.
