resident-evil-revelations-3It’s that time again, North America, when your Nintendo systems are updated with new downloadable delights to sample. In this week’s sampling you have Virtual Console titles to consider, a retail demo and some fresh games to contemplate. Let’s get to the details.

Wii U Virtual Console

Solomon’s Key (Tecmo, $4.99) — Originally an arcade puzzle platformer, like many of its kind it made the transition to the NES. You navigate rooms full of obstacles by both placing and removing blocks, and is a reasonably fun, compulsive experience; we’ll puzzle our way to a fresh look at it, while in the meantime you can check out our Wii Virtual Console Solomon’s Key review.

Xevious (Namco Bandai, $4.99) — An iconic scrolling shmup, this is rather primitive to modern eyes and ears due to its encounters with early NES limitations, but it’s still regarded affectionately by some retro fans of the genre. It’s also appeared in the 3D Classics range, yet we feel its later contemporaries outshine it in a big way; before our Wii U revisit you can check out our Wii Virtual Console Xevious review.

Wii U Temporary Price Reduction

Chasing Aurora (Broken Rules, $7.49 from 9th to 16th May, normally $14.99)

Wii U Retail Demo

Resident Evil Revelations (Capcom, free) — This HD re-release of the highly regarded 3DS title is now just two weeks away, so Capcom’s providing a free demo to get you in the mood. Available from 14th May, this’ll take you through the early — and eerie — stages on an abandoned cruise-liner. They’re free scares, what’s not to like?
