Also hitting the eShores are a couple of Virtual Console titles on the Wii U in the original Metroid and Donkey Kong. Down the way of the 3DS you can also go retro with another serving of the Mario game. Super Mario Bros. 2 is this week’s helping.

Also after the Marvel crew got their own virtual tabletop game, the Star Wars franchise gets its own version of Pinball. Take a look at Star Wars Pinball on the Wii U.
