Nintendo Download February 11th

Oddworld: New ‘n’ Tasty finally releases on Wii U, and with it several Virtual Console titles.

While there are no major releases this week (just a few more days until Fire Emblem: Fates), the Wii U’s virtual console is bolstered by a few handheld games.  The DS’s Big Brain Academy, from that Touch Generations Era of brain teasers, will stretch your mind, as will the Gameboy Advance’s Polarium Advance.

Releasing for the first time in North America is Kuru Kuru Kururin, a game in which you navigate a constantly spinning helicopter rotor through colorful and vibrant mazes.  New obstacles amplify the formula as you go, including canons and pistons.

$1.99 Wii U title Cutie Clash brings cheap five-player multiplayer in the form of barfing, hat wearing birds, who use vomit as a form of propulsion and as a one-hit KO weapon, and a demo for the Visual Novel Petit Novel Series: Harvest December launches alongside a temporary sale ($11.99 to $7.99).

A “Nindies Love You” sale also offers up to 50 percent off select Wii U titles, such as Chariot and Teslagrad.  To see what else is discounted this week, check out the reduced price page.
