This week, from Nintendolife:

Wii U eShop

Year Walk (Simogo, £6.29 / €6.99) - Grim tales, horrifying creatures and cryptic enigmas await in the dark woods of 19th century Sweden. Find out more about this unique game in our interview with Simogo and Dakko Dakko while we polish off our review.

Wii U Virtual Console

Mario vs. Donkey Kong (Nintendo, £6.29 / €6.99) - Mario vs. Donkey Kong pits the Nintendo mascot against his old adversary in a unique twist on the platform genre that made them famous. We'll take a look at this Game Boy Advance classic again to see if it's still just as much fun on the Wii U, until then you can check out our Mario vs. Donkey Kong 3DS eShop review.

Mario vs. Donkey Kong 2: March of the Minis (Nintendo, £8.99 / €9.99) - Take control of the Mini Marios and rescue Pauline from a jealous Donkey Kong. In the first Mario vs. Donkey Kong, Mario was trying to find all the Mini Marios, but this time it's up to them to save the day. Use the touch screen to guide Mini Marios through multiple mind-boggling, obstacle-filled levels to rescue Pauline who was captured once again by Donkey Kong. This is a worthy successor to the GBA original, but one which we have neglected to review! We'll be sure to rectify this over the coming week when we take a look at this again on the Wii U eShop.

Tecmo Bowl (TECMO KOEI GAMES, £3.49 / €4.99) - It's 8-bit American Football, which is nice. Not quite the complex, occasionally confusing experience of the modern Madden titles, this has a very limited set of plays — two passing and two running — to deal with. Its simplicity is arguably one of its strengths, and you certainly don't need to be an expert of the sport to enjoy the single player, multiplayer or coaching options. We gave this a recommendation in our 3DS Virtual Console Tecmo Bowl review.

I love the MvsD games but there's no way I'm buying them again at those prices.

I'm still refusing to buy Mario 3 on the 3DS because I already have it on Wii U. In MvDK's case I have it on 3DS, why can't I have that on Wii U for free now? Do we really have to wait another 2-3 years before they unify the systems? Fucking hell.

The first Mario vs Donkey Kong is amazing, for any unaware. The billions of sequels since (that have never been direct sequels) not so much.

Just be warned it's only about an hour long and costs a third on the App Store

Don't have anything like that. The use of the game pad is great in this. You can use it as a motion controlled pointer/grabber. There is a very useful map on the bottom screen. I like the encyclopedia being a tab on the bottom screen where you can scroll through various entries on Swedish folklore.

It's like an interactive, somewhat unnerving, lesson in Swedish folkore! Don't mind it being short. Am a bit stumped as to what to do next right now.
