It's kind of hard to get what you're looking for when Googling “Dual Core Wii U”.

It's a very busy day for the North American eShop with a full slate of indie releases for both the Wii U and 3DS – and there's a pretty common price for most of them. Your $9.99 will get Futuridium EP Deluxe or Dual Core, a couple of different takes on the shooter, or Rynn's Adventure or Dragon Fantasy: The Black Tome of Ice, which put their own spin on fantasy adventuring.

The 3DS gets its own Dragon Fantasy as well as another sequel with the return of the Epic Word Search Collection, a Kemco RPG in Infinite Dunamis and shop simulator Conveni Dream (which makes me wonder if they'd call it Depanneur Dream in Canada). On the Virtual Console, prepare to soak some paper as the Star Tropics series heads to the Wii U, and longtime Wii VC fans can pick up the games cheap.

Europe gets Futuridium, Epic Word Search Collection 2 and Smash Cat Heroes, but the weirdest release is Mario Slam Basketball. Better known as Mario Hoops 3-on-3 in other territories, it's SquareEnix developing a basketball game that's all touch screen based. And the White Mage has some serious Bismack Biyombo in her.
