Starwhal and Mario Sports Mix lead this week’s Nintendo eShop releases.
If neon-lit acrobatic narwhal action is your bag, then rejoice. as Starwhal heads over to the Wii U eShop this week.
It’s joined by some reissues, including the overlooked Mario Sports Mix – which came and went in the blink of an eye late in the Wii’s life and an outing for the N64’s Mario Golf.
There’s only one game on 3DS but it’s a goodie, a lovingly created 3D edition of Sonic the Hedgehog 2 by those talented folks at M2.
Here’s the full list of games arriving this Thursday.
