Mega Man Battle Network 6: Cybeast Falzar and Mega Man Battle Network 6: Cybeast Gregar for Wii U – MegaMan and Lan are back for their final adventure against the viruses and dark denizens of the net! But with Cybeasts Gregar and Falzar fighting for dominance, will there be anything left to save? For more details, check The Mega Man Network.

Jewel Quest for Wii U – Test your Match-3 skills across 72 game boards.
Rhapsody – Music & Radio for Wii U – This is a weird one. No screens among the assets, and the page is a dead-end. Perhaps this was added by accident?
