New Additions to Nintendo Selects Line Announced
Nintendo 3DS, Wii U, and Wii, too.
Nintendo has announced twelve new additions to its budget line of Nintendo Selects titles, the successor to their previous Player’s Choice line of best-sellers.
On March 11th, four games each will be re-released for the Wii, the Nintendo 3DS, and Wii U at a price of $29.99 CAD. These include Super Mario 3D World, Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, Pikmin 3, and NES Remix Pack for the Wii U; The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D, Yoshi’s New Island, Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D, and Mario Party: Island Tour for the Nintendo 3DS; and Super Mario Galaxy 2, Animal Crossing: City Folk, Donkey Kong Country Returns, and Super Mario All-Stars for the Wii, which are also playable on the Wii U.
“Whether you just picked up a new Wii U or Nintendo 3DS system over the holiday season or want to expand your ever-growing game collection, Nintendo Selects are a great, affordable option,” Nintendo of Canada’s General Manager and Senior Director, Pierre-Paul Trepanier, said in a press release. “Not only are these games easier than ever to enjoy, but they also represent some of our highest-quality offerings in recent memory.”
Having had the privilege and pleasure to review several of these titles over the years, here are links to those relevant reviews:
- Super Mario 3D World
- NES Remix and NES Remix 2 (both are featured in NES Remix Pack)
- Yoshi’s New Island
- Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze
- Pikmin 3
- Mario Party: Island Tour
- Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D
In addition, I have an old review of Animal Crossing: City Folk that I’ll see about publishing ahead of this release.
