FIFA 13 only £1.99 on Nintendo Wii U

To show its age, FIFA 13 was a launch title on the Wii U and is the only FIFA available on the Nintendo platform. Regardless of your love for football games, its most definitely worth pointing out that even if you don't intend to play the game, it will: A: bolster up that Wii U game collection and B: award you some extremely cheap points for your soon to be closed Club Nintendo account.

Check out Jon's FIFA 13 On Wii U At Launch article for more info detailing the gameplay modes and features of the Wii U's FIFA 13.

Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze back down to £24.95

You have to love The Game Collection's daily deals, I can't remember the last time we saw a bad one. Today's offering sees Donkey Kong Tropical Freeze back down to an attractive £24.95. I honestly wish I hadn't spent so much on Wii U titles this past couple of weeks, I can't justify yet another purchase, can I?

Currently beating the next best offering by just over £4, I can't see how anybody wouldn't wish to pick up this incredible title for less than £25. Ah, who am I kidding? Purchased.

Save 10% on a Nintendo Wii U basic console

In the market for a Nintendo Wii U console? If you don't have one in your household then the answer to that question really should be - yes!

As an added bonus purchasing this Nintendo Wii U basic console from Argos will also net you a £10 Argos voucher to spend in store. You really don't have an excuse now, do you?

Wii U premium console and Mario Kart 8 only £175.50

A Premium Wii U bundle with Mario Kart 8 is now available for £175.50. This a hell of a steal. Be sure to use the discount code to get a rather this massive discount. You're also getting x5 Super Points, which will be worth about £9. Mario Kart 8 walked away with our accolade for best racing game of 2014 and even as a staunch PS4, gamer, I struggle to disagree. The Premium Wii U is the only version you want too as it comes with 32GB of memory. Note: This comes with an EU plug, but also a UK adapter.

The Wii U's current lineup is very strong. Bayonetta 2, Smash Bros, Splatoon and the promise of Xenoblade Chronicles X and Super Mario Maker prove that there's a healthy selection of exclusives on the once-ailing console.

This week's Nintendo eShop update brings two new titles and a stack of discounts

This week's Nintendo eShop update due on the 6th August brings in two new titles and some great savings over the Wii U, Virtual Console and 3DS platforms.

Wii U eShop

  • Beatbuddy (Threaks, £8.09) – this action-adventure game relies on rhythm-based timing to perform some moves and key moments. With six beautifully hand-drawn worlds, each featuring unique music composed by industry legends like Austin Wintory, Parov Stelar, chiptune-genius Sabrepulse, and the La Rochelle Band, and the promise of more content in the form of DLC, this is one to look out for. Available from 5th August.
  • Sanatory Hallways (Wegenbartho, £8.99) – a unique two-player experience that sees one character wielding a flashlight to escape her nightmare, with the other being a ghost tasked with tormenting her.

Legend of Kay Anniversary only £13.68 on the Nintendo Wii U

Fans of action platformers may want to give this a look if they missed it on the PS2. The graphics have held up well and there’s a stern challenge on offer, although the awkward claw-stance required on the controller during combat may be a hard sell. Very reasonably priced at £3.99 though. Legend of Kay Review | This Kitty Has Claws (February 2014)

The Legend of Kay was originally released on the Playstation 2 back in March of 2005 before finding its way to the Nintendo DS in 2010. It's the cheapest we have seen The Legend of Kay Anniversary on the Nintendo Wii U both pre and post release. It's not the greatest game we have played, but at only £13.68 its fun factor will hold its own weight.

Call of Duty Black Ops II is a must have at only £4.85 on Wii U

While much of the campaign isn’t set in the future, the action is still frantically paced fun and the story is probably the best seen in a Call of Duty game yet. Zombies mode is currently broken. But what I have been able to play wasn’t particularly impressive, with a lack of interesting stages failing to spark a real desire in me for Treyarch to fix it anytime soon. Multiplayer is reliably excellent fun though. The simple -yet brilliant- revolution of giving players total freedom to tailor their loadout makes Black Ops II a joy to play. Not many new modes to speak of, but existing party favourites, deathmatch options and shiny futuristic boomsticks will make this your new favourite online FPS.

Don't ink about it, Splatoon is a must buy at £21.99

Splatoon blows third-person shooting wide open with its wildly unique mechanics and uninhibited sense of fun. Approachable for newcomers and enjoyable for old hands, it's an impressive Wii U exclusive, though we'll have to take Nintendo's promises of free DLC and updates on trust. Splatoon Review | Squid Free Or Dye Hard

If you had no interest in Splatoon before today, you very much must have now. Tomorrow sees the introduction of the N-ZAP89, which in retro terms you may remember as the Nintendo Zapper. I'm not sure I should, but I feel the need for a hashtag! #DuckHunt
