How’s Olli Olli, Final Fantasy IX, the demo for Yoshi’s Crafted World, Kirby’s Adventure, Super Mario Bros 2, and Tetris 99 sound? All of those are either up right now or coming this week.

Of course, all the biggest stuff is accompanied by the usual assortment of secondary offerings. There’s not too much that stands out on that list, but then again noting really has to.
