Tending crops and wrangling Pikmin.

Did someone say, "biggest Wii U title of the fall?" Oh, you did? Why, yes, Pikmin 3 is going to be available this week! Along with Harvest Moon, Kirby's Dream Land 2 and Cloudberry Kingdom! Nintendo is stepping up their game once again and putting the hurt on your wallet, and I've never been happier about it. Let's be honest here, a week of ramen won't kill you, but another week without Pikmin just might.

3DS Retail Games

Disney Planes - $39.99, Available August 6

Wii U Retail Games

Pikmin 3 - $59.99, Available August 4

Disney Planes - $49.99, Available August 6

3DS eShop Games

Bike Rider DX - $5.99

If you like bikes and the riding of bikes then, boy, do I have a game for you! Collect gold coins, hop over penguins, and battle it out for the high score. Who doesn't like a nice relaxing bike ride? The game boasts a very simple control scheme: just jump. If you can't figure that one out you might want to put down the 3DS and seek medical attention.

My Farm 3D - $7.99

Unfortunately Harvest Moon is only available on the Wii U, unless you want to play the inferior Game Boy Color version. So what's a handheld gamer to do? Well, My Farm 3D is here to (possibly) satisfy your handheld farming lust. Experience such thrilling features as: feeding your cows, feeding your chickens, and selling eggs.

Family Kart 3D - $4.99

Apparently there's a whole series of games with the Family title. Who knew? Eight karts, 12 tracks, multiple difficulty modes – if you're a fan of family-oriented kart racing games then this sounds like the title for you. If you prefer your kart racing more vicious, then you might want to look elsewhere; you'll scare the children.

3DS Virtual Console

Kirby's Dream Land 2 - $3.99

Your favorite pink fluff ball is back for more platforming action! Heck, I don't even have a second favorite pink fluff ball, because Kirby takes up both spots in my heart. Something has happened to the seven Rainbow Bridges, and I have a good feeling as to who's responsible. Now, go find King DeDeDe and stuff that hammer down his throat.

Wii U eShop Games

Cloudberry Kingdom - $9.99

Stand aside, Ninja Gaiden, there's a new contender for the title of Hardest Freaking Game Ever Made. The procedurally generated levels guarantee an infinite amount of hair-pulling platforming, and with multiplayer you can bring over someone you love to take part in the teeth-gnashing difficulty!

Wii U Virtual Console

Harvest Moon - $7.99

Get ready to get your hands dirty with Harvest Moon! Get a farm, get a dog, and then get married in the game that launched the most successful farming-based Japanese RPG life-simulator franchise in the world. Yeah, it's a pretty niche market, but if you've never experienced finding virtual love, then now's your chance.

Definitely getting Cloudberry Kingdom today. Pikmin will be a physical release down the line. Harvest Moon intrigues me. Anybody want to sell me on why I should play it?

I believe Shaymin will be happy that Kirby's Dream Land 2 is finally getting a VC release. And for $4, that's not too shabby.

My first video game system was the clear GameBoy and my first game was Kirby Dream Land 2. After fully conquering the game, in a weak moment I pawned it off and I have regretted it many times. Good-bye $4 hello long lost childhood memories!!!

For people interested in Cloudberry Kingdom, be aware the game does not appear to have online leaderboards.

What? I thought it was one of the advertised features?
