Digital Sales and Releases Wii U & 360 Edition

This week we have both Nintendo's Thursday digital release and week 2 of the Luigi sale. But also Microsoft's latest Deal of the Week Sale. That's if you cant pry yourself away from Titanfall or Dark Souls 2

Wii U/3DS Releases
Pokemon Link: Battle! (3DS: Nintendo, £7.19) has you battling and catching 718 Pokemon - but now through the medium of those games middle-aged commuters love.

Yoshi's New Island (3DS: Nintendo, £34.99) An new entry in the long running Yoshi Island games

Cube Tactics (3DS: Teyon, £4.49) This is a "strategic and tactical war-game with cubes."... Right...

Cubit the Hardcore Platformer Robot (3DS: CoderChild, £2.69) might as well be called Bit.Trip Clone.

Double Dragon (Wii U Virtual Console: Arc System Works, £3.49) this was one of the first brawlers of its time and feels quite slow these days.

Super Dodge Ball (Wii U Virtual Console: Arc System Works, £3.49) actually started as a spin-off of Renegade, but took school's most vindictive sport as its basis for violence, and seems somehow more brutal for it.

Wii U/3DS Sales
On top of the new releases, Nintendo has rotated the discounts on Luigi-related games - this week you can grab Luigi's Mansion 2 for £31.99, Dr. Luigi is £8.99 and Super Mario Bros. 2 is £1.74 on Wii U and 3DS.

As for other sales, Runner 2 is now a satisfyingly-priced £3.33 and all of the excellent Zen Pinball games available on 3DS are £3.14 or less.

360 Deal of the Week

Soul Calibur V - 75%

Abe's Take
I was hoping for Eternal Sonata to be a games with gold but £7.49 isn't a horrible price for an unique JRPG with music as a theme. £7.49 also isn't a bad price for EDF: IA, A good jumping on price for gamers unsure on the giant insect B-movie shooter. I've been dying for an excuse to buy Foul Play and £3.29 is an fantastic excuse, to play a side scrolling beat em up set on stage where as you play as a chap armed with a cane, top hat and monocle.
