    Woow, Hello Kitty!!!

  • long_dong_donkey_kong

    Eventually their plan to do nothing in the three month void between Donkey Kong and Mario Kart will start to bear fruit, right?

  • Jack5221

    Release Yoshis Island from the SNES on Virtual Console. I lost my copy of that game. And after playing Yoshis New Island for an hour (Currently at World 2), I really want to replay the classic version!! One of my favorite games of all time. But no… We get Volley Ball… Would have been cool if they released the classic version on VC sometime before the sequel came out. The sequel is so far so good, but I remember the classic version being so much better.

    • Dominicruz

      supermario world 2 yoshi’s island was the best is my favorite game of snes ,I don’t like the new ones with that ugly music

    • They’ll release the Game Boy Advance version since it’ll be one of the launch titles when they start releasing Game Boy Advance titles on Virtual Console.

    • Michael Ocampo

      I think it’s just the ol’ nostalgia playing tricks on you.

  • Christopher Acuna

    Effin Hello Kitty! What the Serious Fudge man! >_<

  • Con

    Now I remember why I hardly even touch my Wii u

  • ActivesiN

    holy! hello kitty and chess?! , what a week

  • Lil J Moore

    This is just sad. Nintendo needs to get off their asses and start releasing better titles and fast.

    • Magnus Eriksson

      Castlevania in Europe. Annoys me that the Virtual Console is a bit overpriced.

      • Ducked

        Yeah like you can buy PS1 classics for $5.99 on PSN, but SNES titles cost $7.99 on eShop.

      • Forget Virtual Console. I want my next-gen waggle and I want it now.

      • CASTLEVANIA ANNOYS YOU!?!?!?! THEY PUT HELLO KTTY ON THERE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
        JUST WHY!!!!!

      • Sheiky Baby

        It really is. I’d buy more NES games if they were 3 bucks. NES 8? Nah, those should be 5. I’d spend a lot more money on there if those prices made sense.

        • Jaded_Drybones

          VC games really are overpriced.

    • The Clockwork Being

      Why, are you a troll? Who doesn’t want freakin VOLLEY BALL. That game made my childhood.


      • thedeciderU

        hahaha these releases are awful

  • Shagrath1983

    Actually a good week for me. Bought Darksiders 2, Wheel of fortune, Pokemon tro, and Pure chess on 3ds ( time killer on the can and ride home )

  • Capt. Smoker

    oh boy…… the fun to be had

  • MetroidZero

    Hello Kitty? WTF.

    • CharlesAnderson

      Not everyone playing on a Wii U is a teenage boy.

    • Kevin Sepulveda

      Whats wrong with that? There are some people who probably enjoy that.

      • MetroidZero

        Hmm, volleyball, chess, and Hello Kitty! Someone get my debit card!


  • Ducked

    I’ll be snagging Hello Kitty off the eShop tomorrow! In all seriousness, Conception demo excites me! But as for Wii U, very very sad.

  • SinkyChan

    WAIT what Hello Kitty game!!!

  • Ricky__Spanish

    More shit from Nintendo.

    Back to Dark Souls

    • uPadWatcher

      Says the troll. I’ll be having fun playing Pure Chess.

      • Ricky__Spanish



      Im playing Dark Souls 2 on 360 and MH3U on Wii U. The 2 games really compliment each other. Im sharp as a tack on both at the mo 🙂

  • Adrian

    This is a disgraceful week for Nintendo.

    • uPadWatcher

      This is a disgraceful week for a salty troll name Adrian.

      • Adrian

        1. I don’t even understand what you are trying to say.

        2. I’ve been part of this site since before the WiiU released. Who the hell are you?

        • Kevin Sepulveda

          He’s upadwatcher, Most popular kid in school, head of the cheer leading squad and part time mother fucking model.

          • thedeciderU


  • LJay

    All utter pish-who the hell is picking these for release,they must be off there heads!!!?

  • 00048560



  • Sheiky Baby

    I’m beginning to think they’re not going to do anything until E3. Whatever, Nintendo.

  • Roadkill409

    Nintendo must have a hat with all the classic Nintendo games printed on pieces of paper and then each week they pick a new game. And then they are mandated to use that game. Nintendo has such a deep and dynamic history of quality games. I can’t imagine Volleyball is at the top of many people’s list. I wonder who is in charge of picking these VC titles.

    • Roadkill409

      I will be buying Pure Chess

  • ETeach

    Hello Kitty! Yes!!! Sweet lord, yes!

    …on a serious note, Pokemon Trozei looks kinds fun. I think I’ll just stick with Monster Hunter though. That’s kinda fulfilling all my gaming needs these days.

  • wiimenonowiiu

    Here kitty kitty ………. not the game my kitty is alot more fun lol

  • FilipiCn

    Last night i bought darksiders 2 because it is on sale

  • Joel

    Darksiders is $19.99 on the eshop right now.

  • NyallJodhan

    Get this one, it’s great!

    • MerryBlind .

      It is! It is!!!

  • SP-937-215

    In other news: Nintendo explains, in a newly released video, why they have continued to disappoint fans over the past two years, and why they feel justified for doing so:

  • Vinicius

    The only big deal here is Darksiders II for US 19.99 ( As I’m a poor guy, I finally buyed it! :P)

  • Josie the Sketcher

    Pure Chess would be interesting to play online.

  • MerryBlind .

    This is getting ridiculous…

  • Donaald

    It seems meh, but you forgot about Darksiders 2 being 19.99$, that’s a steal.
