The Mario and Donkey Kong series never seemed to catch on with gamers like some of Mario’s other sideline franchises. But that hasn’t stopped Nintendo from producing new games in the series and the fifth, Mario and Donkey Kong: Minis on the Move, is available on the 3DS eShop starting today. SpeedX 3D: Hyper Edition, a tunnel racer, has also been added to the 3DS eShop this week.
Three other games and a demo are also available this week…
- Xevious and Solomon’s Key come to the Wii U Virtual Console
- Publisher Dream, a “game design tycoon” game, is available on the DSiWare Shop.
- And finally, a Resident Evil Revelations demo will be added to the Wii U eShop on May 14.
More information on all of these titles can be found after the break.
