Wii U eShop

The NES Classic Edition isn’t Nintendo’s first crack at emulating past games, though it might be its best attempt yet. GameXplain put together a video that shows how the hardware’s emulation stacks up against the Wii U Virtual Console, and it seems rather clear which one does the better job. View the full video below.

The BBC iPlayer has only been around for about a year, but the app is already a thing of the past. It was taken down from the Wii U eShop on August 31, and it’s also said that service will end in January 2017. That doesn’t leave much time left for folks to use it!

The folks over at GameXplain have uploaded about 30 minutes of Pikmin: New Play Control! footage to their YouTube channel now that it’s launched on Wii U. You can view the video below.

Nintendo has updated their European My Nintendo reward site with 20% discounts for the newest additions to the Nintendo Select line, which includes Mario Party 10, Super Mario 3D World, Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker and Pikmin 3.

The discount code costs 30 Gold Points, and give you a 20% discount on the title of your choosing which would bring these down from €24.99 or £19.99 to about $20 or £16 each. Also worth noting is that you’ll be getting the 30 Gold Points spent to get the discount back from the purchase of the Nintendo Select title.


As of tomorrow, European gamers can now purchase and play SteamWorld Heist on Wii U. In North America, it’ll follow in October. Get a look at some footage from the new console release below.
