Plumbers, ducks and warlords.
Mario & Luigi are once again making their way to a handheld near you, but Wii U owners, do not despair! DuckTales: Remastered will be available just two short days later!
Unfortunately, no 3DS Virtual Console love this week, but the Wii U gets, what I consider, one of the best feudal Chinese warlord simulators ever to release on the Super Nintendo.

It's bowling! No zombies, no gimmicks, no explosions, just pure bowling action. The game boasts a four player multiplayer mode using a single system, so you can experience all the waiting and sitting of a real bowling alley! The Dude would be proud.
I know, you're probably sick of mining games by now, but listen: SteamWorld Dig is different. You'll dig your way deep underground to defeat a race of ugly-as-sin troglodytes to uncover treasure as well as the remnants human civilization. See? Told you it was different. Besides, the main character wears a cowboy hat, which we all know makes the game awesome by default.
Just a refresher: tangrams are the little flat, multicolored, multi-shaped blocks that we all played with as kids, but didn't know what they were for. Solve puzzles, make shapes and feel good about yourself in Tangram Style's 600 tangram puzzles.

Man, ducks sure have a hard life! Race cars, lasers, airplanes; they've got a lot to deal with! Fortunately for us, Scrooge McDuck is up to the task and back to his old tricks! Live the American dream as a duck on a pogo stick hoarding loads of cash and treasure. Heck, even if you don't want the game you should buy it just to listen to the music.
Spin the Bottle: Bumpie's Party isn't as much a game as it is something cool you can do with three other people and a GamePad. While it might not be the system-defining title we've all been waiting for, it definitely does some interesting things with Nintendo's little tablet. Also, if the bottle lands on you, then you have to stay in the closet for the full seven minutes or you have to leave my party. Jerks.

Things aren't looking good in China. In fact, the Second Han Dynasty is about to go kaput, and you're the only one that can save it. If you love looking at charts, boxes, dialogue and primitive spreadsheets then you just might be up to the task of saving this once great empire!
