Let's tap, let's tap, retro tapping game.
Updated at 11:45ET with additional details and Canadian pricing where applicable.
It appears to be a quiet week on the new game front for the Nintendo downloads. Wii U gets decidedly retro with Amiibo Tap and Paper Mario, and sadly one cannot call the other. On the 3DS side, it's a return to shooter heaven as Circle brings us Karous - The Beast of Re:Eden, the newest entry in a vertical shooter series that actually showed up in the Ultimate Shooting Collection on the Wii. The hype train for Puzzle and Dragons continues as well, as the demo for the Super Mario edition launches.
Also, a couple of small public service announcements: Today is the last day for North American Club Nintendo members to claim Gold/Platinum rewards, so if you're waiting for the last minute, this would be it. While at Club Nintendo, you can also cash in 250 coins if you still have them to get today's VC release for $2 instead of $10.
