So a few games of note are out this week. At the top of the pile has to be the hotly anticipated Yoshi’s Woolly World which we saw a tonne of at E3 last week. It looks like the sweetest game on a Nintendo platform since Kirby and the Rainbow Paintbrush which was also pretty recent but hey, Nintendo are the masters of cute games.
If you haven’t seen much about it, YWW is very much a Yoshi’s World game with the rather obvious difference being that everything is made of wool. Loads to collect in each level and tonnes of variety, this is Nintendo’s last big game until the end of next month when Devil’s Third comes out so hopefully it’ll have enough content to keep us going.
Plenty coming out on the Virtual Console this week, 2 Kirby games; one from DS and the other is the N64 classic, also another of the many brain training games that came out on DS; Brain Training which was easily the most popular of the genre way back when.
Other then that Cubelife looks like an awful Mincraft rip off where you’re stranded on a desert island, Shiftlings is an expensive 2D platform puzzler and Tappingo 2 is one for the Pictocross addicts.
Pick of the week here absolutely has to go to the wonderfully beautiful looking Yoshi’s Woolly World.
