Super Paper Mario and Mega Man prop up this week’s Nintendo eShop release line-up.
There’s a slightly more robust feel to this week’s Nintendo eShop offering after last week’s paltry two releases.
The under-appreciated Wii RPG platformer Super Paper Mario comes to Wii U. It’s a game often criticised for not being a fully fledged Paper Mario game but to our minds is a hidden gem, full of playfulness and with lots of interesting riffs on the paper folding conceit.
It’s joined on Wii U by – among others – Frankenstein – Master of Death. We can only imagine how thrilled Mary Shelley would be to see her creation finally become a hidden object game.
Over on New 3DS there are two new Virtual Console games in the shape of Mega Man X2 and X3. As with other SNES Virtual Console releases if you buy one the other is half price for a limited time.
Here’s the full release list.

We have a favour to ask
Thumbsticks has a couple of main aims. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. But it's hard to do that in the current financial climate. If you'd like to help us fund these aims, you could always buy the team a cup of coffee.
