Lego Dimensions story trailer makes it hard to resist

Parents, do not let your children see this trailer! There's no way they'll not want a piece of Lego Dimensions after seeing this. And how are you going to play it if you have to share with the little blighters?

Today's trailer gives us the biggest look yet at the story for Lego Dimensions, the new name in the toys-to-life genre that we're already trading in our Skylanders and Disney Infinity tat for. The mind-boggling mashup of characters and worlds including Batman, Lord of the Rings, Back to the Future and The Wizard of Oz looks like the sort of toybox-inspired fun that's going to be a blast to play. It's not going to be cheap, but we've hunted down the best deals for preorders if you want to get involved at launch. You'll save a small fortune compared to an impulse buy on the high street too.

Bayonetta 2 is a Wii U classic and only £18.72 or £21.99 for Special Edition

Bayonetta 2 is taking a while to come down, but this £18.72 deal is the lowest I've seen it in a while as the game makes a rare sub-£20 appearance. Better yet, why not pick up the Special Edition (including the first game) for a few quid more at £21.99.

Bayonetta 2 is considered to be the best melee action title in years, probably the best since well, the first Bayonetta. So if you're a new Wii U owner, this should probably be your first stop. Sure the story's pants and Bayonetta looks way too much like Sarah Palin, but the combotastic gameplay is amongst the best the genre's seen.

Rare(ish) Marth Amiibo available from £9.92

Been looking for a Marth Amiibo? Well, Amazon Prime members, stop watching Mad Men for five minutes and grab one of these for just £9.92. Non-Prime members can pick up one for £11.95.

I'm pretty sure the Marth Amiibo was rare at some point. Not as much nowadays apparently as they can be found on ebay for between £15 and £20. Naturally, this Amazon deal is the best option by far as they're selling them under the RRP. And they won't be some dodgy knock-off with droopy faces.

Thanks to domd212.

Wii U Premium + 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 £9.75. 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.

Thanks to Chanchi32.

Splatoon is the best Wii U game in ages. Get it now for £22.39

Splatoon is a must-buy title for any Wii U owner, and unlike most first-party Ninty titles, there are some super cheap deals floating around since release. Like this one at just £22.39.

Only Nintendo could turn third-person shooter deathmatches in family-friendly fun. This shooter sees you aiming to paint more territory than the rival team with a variety of weapons. In a neat twist, you can also sneakily swim through any surface painted in your colour. New maps and weapons are appearing all the time in Splatoon, retro Nintendo fans really need to take a look at this to roll back the clock too.

Pikmin 3 is just £19.95 @ TheGameCollection in today's flash dealNintendo always seems to have this way with making games harder to get hold of, or expensive if you do get the chance to get one. Included in that list of games is Pikmin 3 on the Nintendo Wii U. Today's GameCollection deal will however give you the chance to get your hands on this gem for just £19.95 delivered.

"Pikmin 3 is a reimagined, mass-action strategy title from the critically acclaimed Pikmin series. Players take control of 3 explorers and an array of cute Pikmin in a struggle for survival.

Get Splatoon on Wii U for just £22

UPDATE: The Game Collection keep running out of stock. If you can't get a copy, you can buy Splatoon for £22.39 at Base!

Here's another one to add to the list of voucher code-based deals in The Game Collection's birthday celebrations, beating the cheapest price elsewhere by a few pounds. In our review we called Splatoon "fresh, messy, raucous and brilliant," and while it was lacking features and maps at launch Nintendo have released a steady stream of content since then. Basically, if you own a Wii U it's a hard to argue against the value at this price. Thanks to littlemonster2011 @ HUKD!

Kirby and the Rainbow Paintbrush might be worth a punt at £18.95 on Wii U

Kirby and the Rainbow Paintbrush might be worth a punt at £18.95 on Wii U

Kirby and the Rainbow Paintbrush is an exciting idea. You'll use the Wii U Gamepad to create tracks for Kirby to roll along, using the hardware to advantate, while enjoying the utterly sensational claymation visuals.

Unfortunately, when it came to review, I discovered that it's also flawed in a number of respects. You can't appreciate the visuals since you have to squint at the touchscreen at all times, while the action lacks the versatile joy of previous Kirby games. Heck, he can't even consume and transform! You can read all about it here.

I wouldn't suggest paying more than £18.95... which is a good thing too, because you still grab it at The Game Collection!

Yoshi's Wooly World is a Wii U classic at £27.66

Yoshi's Woolly World is one of the best platformers we've seen in a while and we're surprised to see it on sale for as little as  for just £27.66 when it's going for over £30 at many other sites.

Sometimes you just want to chill out with a game and you'll struggle to find a more comforting-looking game than Yoshi's Woolly World on the Wii U. Want to know more? Take a look at Jon's full review. "Yoshi's Woolly World is Nintendo at their inventive best. Delightful and deceptively devious, this sensational platformer encourages you to explore, experiment and genuinely play with it at every turn."

Thanks to Lomi.

The Best Wii U & 3DS Games Of 2015 So Far

We're now halfway through 2015 and it's time to take stock of the year so far. No matter what systems you own and genres you're into, we've already had plenty of great games to get stuck into between January and June.

Yesterday we covered the best PS4 games of 2015. Today we're moving onto Nintendo, both in terms of the Wii U and 3DS, and looking back at six months of quality over quantity. We'll link to our reviews and the cheapest prices around when possible too.

Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate

The Best Wii U & 3DS Games Of 2015 So Far

Let's start with the big one. Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate is probably the best game in the series and nothing less than an essential killer app.

Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate is utterly magnificent. Newfound vertical freedom, extraordinary new monsters and native 3DS multiplayer makes for the best game in the series to date, coupled with a much more compelling storyline and some killer new features. - 10/10 review

Oh, and let's not forget the boatloads of awesome and completely free DLC delivered every month, from new quests to weapons and fan-favourite costumes!

The Wonderful 101, Wii U games

The Wonderful 101 now costs a wonderful £21.97

The Wonderful 101 is magnificent, as you'd rightly expect from Platinum Games. The veteran studio created one of their most colourful and outrageous brawlers to date as you control an entire team of heroes simultaneously, calling on ridiculous attacks to pummel enormous bosses. If you own a Wii U, it's a cult classic and an essential for genre fans, yet so few people eventually bought it.

Shame! A heartbreaking lapse in judgement, but now you can get involved for just £21.97. That is, if you've already clocked Bayonetta 2. Many thanks to gty1970 @ HUKD!

"Platinum unleashed their full creative force on The Wonderful 101, holding nothing back, and the lunatic density of its layered gameplay systems sometimes threatens to overwhelm. Thankfully raucous fun factor and Kamiya's trademark tight design conspire to create a modern classic on Wii U, so long as you're willing to master it." - 8/10 The Wonderful 101 Review.

Bayonetta 2 gets a massive discount on Amazon

Though some of our regulars disagree, Bayonetta 2 is superb and that's our final word on the matter. It's a technically perfect brawler with gorgeous art design, compelling challenge curve and masterful mechanics that deserves to be a part of any discerning Wii U owner's collection.

Which means that you should definitely check out Amazon's latest price drop. You can now buy Bayonetta 2 for just £16.99 -- plus an extra £2.03 postage if you're not a Prime member -- which is an absolute steal.

Call Of Duty: Black Ops 2 is just £5.95 on Wii U

Call Of Duty: Black Ops 3 may not be coming to Wii U, but you can buy the second game in Treyarch's trilogy for less than £6. I personally feel that it's one of the best Call Of Duty games of the lot, with a great branching storyline and excellent multiplayer tweaks.

Our review is on hand if you need it.
