Nintendo Europe To Add Four Quality Wii Titles To Selects Line-Up

Nintendo of Europe has announced that it will be adding four new titles to its current Nintendo Selects range. Nintendo UK confirmed over on Twitter that the esteemed Super Mario Galaxy 2, New Super Mario Bros. Wii, Mario Party 9, and the get-together icebreaker Wii Party will all feature in the fantastic catalogue.

The four games above will join such titles as Super Smash Bros. Brawl, The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess and Mario Kart Wii in the Selects line-up. If you missed any of the aforementioned games, you’ll be able to purchase these at great value when they are added to the range on June 13.

    1. You move on the board as one (on a vehicle), so you all land on the same space. It mixes up the formula and it works pretty successfully. I got at a garage sale for $2 so it was a pretty good deal for me haha.

      1. The only thing I hate is the all in one movement style…

        I’m not a fan of team work or such type of games…

        That’s why I couldn’t give a damn about team play on any game like FPS, RTS or racing…

        I love to kill my enemies and allied alike…

        *wink*

    2. No it completely butchered the mario party formula. Very boring to replay. also so much bullshit towards the end of each board meaning you can go from first to fourth in the last turn, meaning nothing you do at the start of the game matters.

      1. Since you are pretty serious in most things you say, I’ll take your word for it…

    3. Mario Party 9 is not worth it. It was simplified, repetitive, and a huge stretch from the older games. The only great things about it was the stages, which had the signature twists/ design as older titles. I liked the lava, boo, and DK stages as they required some strategy. Unfortunately there are just too many downsides for me to recommend it. They removed stars/coins, mini games every turn (in MP 9 there might be 7-9 mini games per game), and the ability for characters to choose which way to “go”. It’s no longer a map, and more like a path. I did not really enjoy this new approach. But, sure, the game can be fun at times. Just it doesn’t hold it’s own against the N64 originals.

      But Wii Party is worth your money, I’d say. Wii Party had the style of an old Mario Party title (focus on mini games), but doesn’t have the same charm. Still, my family and I had fun playing the “scale the mountain” mode, Bingo mode, and the mini-games were fun too. It is definitely worth it if your family/friends likes multiplayer party games. But it isn’t as spot on as the earlier Mario Party titles (on the 64 or GameCube even)- but still fun nonetheless.

    1. Because there’s better games for the WII U at this moment in time? No. if you’ve missed out on any of the amazing titles on the wii then you should pick them up or you’re an idiot.

    2. People still play NES games and some still even buys them so your comment is invalid…

  1. Nintendo of America, what are you smoking? Where are these deals? You fools haven’t even’t confirmed the Mario Kart 8 bundle yet.

  2. Of course 3 out of the 4 are Mario games. Where’s Skyward Sword? Where’s Metroid Prime 3?

    WHEEEEERRRE’S THE BLAAAAACKSMIIIIITH!?
