Mario is the star of this week’s Nintendo eShop releases, featuring in Paper Mario: Color Splash and Mario Party Star Rush.
So, this is the Wii U’s big autumn release. Still, we’re not going to grumble about a new Paper Mario game, especially now the series has moved to HD for the first time. Expect Paper Mario: Color Splash to give you a silly story, some silly gameplay mechanics and – if past titles are anything to go by – a silly smile on your face.
Mario is also featured in this week’s big 3DS release, Mario Party Star Rush. The game gets a free companion minigame to try out in the shape of Mario Party Star Rush – Party Guest.
The New Nintendo 3DS also gets two new SNES Virtual Console games this week with the release of Breath of Fire and Breath of Fire II. As usual, if you buy one title you can get the other for half-price for the first week on sale.
