- The Amazing Spider-Man 2
“The Amazing Spider-Man 2 takes place outside the events of the second film in a unique story where Spider-Man discovers a larger threat to NYC that has turned the underworld upside down. Villains from the film as well as fan-favourite, classic Marvel characters are woven together in a twisted web of adrenaline-fueled, free-roaming, web-slinging action that puts players on a collision course with an evil far beyond Spider-Man’s reckoning.”

- Spy Chameleon
“Don’t let the comic look fool you. Being a good RGB agent requires a lot of talent. Spy Chameleon is an arcade-puzzle game where the player must avoid being seen thanks to the chameleon’s ability to change colours and camouflage. Through 5 missions and 75 levels, the player will discover different enemies and abilities to complete these super-secret missions: taking photos of a celebrity with her lover and stealing the secret formula of a successful soft drink are just two examples. Watch your enemies, choose the best path and run to the next safe point. The duration of each level can mean finishing a game in just minutes or spending hours trying to complete the missions and all the challenges, getting the best time among your friends or completing all the achievements.”
Spy Chameleon will be available for €4.99/£4.49/CHF7.00. You can purchase it for €3.99/£3.59/CHF5.60 if you own 99 Seconds, Abyss, Darts Up, Rock Zombie, or Unepic on the same Wii U.

“Originally released as a launch title for the NES™, Duck Hunt™ is a true classic that will really test your reflexes. Ready, aim…pow! If the ducks go down, you win. If the shots go wide, you’ll suffer your hunting dog’s sniggering! Now played with the Wii Remote instead of the Zapper light gun, it’s otherwise exactly as you might remember it. Game A and Game B modes offer different difficulty levels (and a second player can even control the duck!) while Game C ups the challenge further with fast, small clay pigeons.”
Duck Hunt will be available for €4.99/£3.49/CHF7.00. This is the US version of the game.
