Riding on the coattails of Wii Fit U is Wii Sports Club. Time to get off the couch!
Another solid week! I guess Nintendo really is trying to step up their download game. Wii Sports Club makes its debut following Wii Fit U last week, and both offer free trials.
Not to mention some hefty RPG discounts for Nintendo 3DS owners and another onslaught of strange 3DS eShop games. Yes, it’s something for everyone once again this week; hopefully Nintendo can keep this momentum going!

In a scenario reminiscent of Gremlins 2, chickens have invaded a movie studio and it’s up to you to grab that shotgun and put an end to their fowl antics. Oddly enough you’re also tasked with shooting down stage props, which doesn’t seem like a very good idea for a movie studio employee…Maybe you’re a bit disgruntled?
A puzzle game? With little gems in little rows? Yes, please! From the description I can see that there are ancient things I must unlock, as well as mysterious cards to find, but I’m not quite sure what the gameplay consists of. If I had to venture a guess, I would say it probably has to do with moving the rows of little colored gems. Yeah, it’s probably that.
Calling KORG M01D a game is sort of like calling drum set a game. Really it’s a tool, and if it’s anything like the KORG game for the Nintendo DS then it’s probably a pretty darn good one. I’m not really musically inclined myself, but 24 voice-polyphony sounds like a lot. The best part? You can share your songs over StreetPass.
Forget those dumb adult pet hotels, My Baby Pet Hotel 3D is only for those cute, cuddly infantile pets that you need to stash somewhere while you’re on vacation. With the biggest eyes this side of Nintendogs, there may be a very real danger of your head exploding from cuteness overload. Buyer beware.
There’s an age gate just to look at the web page for this game, so you know it’s got some adult themes. With words such as “crap” and “damn” peppered throughout its lavish description, I’m sure we’re in for some very hardcore sleuthing here.

Known colloquially as “the last NES game ever made,” Wario’s Woods is a nice mashup of your favorite evil-grinned plumber and, you guessed it, a Tetris knockoff! The best feature of the game is that Toad finally gets to step into the limelight and play the role of protagonist. This is, of course, years before he would spend his life stashed up Peach’s dress in Smash Bros.
Wii U eShop Games
This week we finally get treated to the re-release of Wii Sports, with online play and uprezzed graphics to entice all you Wii U owners out there. If you’re on the fence about it then fear not, it comes with a 24-hour trial for each game and individual Day Passes which can be purchased for $1.99. The games currently available are Tennis and Bowling.
The first entry in the Toki Tori series hits the Wii U this week, along with promises that RUSH and EDGE will soon follow. If you loved Toki Tori 2, then you’ll probably want to pick this one up and see where it all started.
Wii U Virtual Console
If you’re the kind of person that prefers your NES games plastered up on the big screen, then you’ll probably want to get the Wii U version of Wario’s Woods.
If murdering birds with a shotgun in 3D was just a little too graphic for you, then you can enjoy Crazy Chickens: Director’s Cut in two dimensions. Or, if you’ve still yet to make the upgrade to a 3D capable handheld, then this is probably the only way you’ll be able to enjoy this timeless, bird-killing classic.
