NES Remix 2

NES Remix 2 is the pick of a rather slender release list on the Nintendo eShop this week. 

The retro-remix-mini-game collection comes to Wii U priced at a ‘just about bearable’ £8.99. It’s joined by the GBA Virtual Console classic Yoshi’s Island : Super Mario Advance 3, itself a version of the wonderful SNES game, Super Mario World 2: Yoshi’s Island. It’s still well worth checking out if you haven’t played it before and is certainly superior to the recent 3DS title, Yoshi’s New Island.

Over on 3DS there is the long-awaited arrival of Sayonara UmiharaKawase (which we reviewed as Yumi’s Odd Odyssey), also well worth a look if you are a fan of platform games and/or fishing rods.

We hate 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 difficult to make ends meet in online publishing at the moment, so if you'd like to help us continue our work, you could always buy the team a cup of coffee.
