Wii U eShop
My Exotic Farm (BiP Media, $4.99) — Based on past precedent we'd expect this to be a HD remake of the 3DS title with the same name, making this the second My Farm title to arrive on the Wii U eShop. You job is to start with an empty field and gradually build up your resources and animal stock, caring for them and paying the bills.

Kirby & The Amazing Mirror (Nintendo, $6.99) — While some may expect any 2D platforming Kirby title to follow a set formula, this GBA entry does experiment a fair amount. There are elements of exploration and backtracking, along with three extra Kirby characters that can be summoned on a cellphone; rather than simply getting from A to B, you're expected to seek out secrets and find hidden exits.
WarioWare, Inc.: Mega Microgame$! (Nintendo, $6.99) — Wario has starred in some excellent 2D action platformers, but some know him as the master of wacky, quick-fire minigames. This GBA entry delivers just that, as you progress through a whole lot of breathless, bonkers minigames for the simple purpose of having fun.

Governor of Poker (Teyon, $4.99 / $4.99CAD) — This is the latest download from the prolific Teyon, and a port of a previous release on PC, Mac, Facebook, Android and iOS. As the title suggests you play and win in poker matches while working through the challenge of using winnings to buy resources and, eventually, towns in order to take over Texas.
Atlantic Quest (Maximum Games, $TBC) — Available from 15th April, this appears to be a match-3 puzzle title with a variety of underwater locations; 120 levels and some mini-games are promised in terms of content.
Boxzle (PouncingKitten Games, $2.99 / $2.99CAD) — More puzzle action for the 3DS, though this one incorporates sliding tile puzzles with three-dimension shapes; it sounds interesting, and apparently includes 120 puzzles.
3DS Virtual Console
Mach Rider (Nintendo, $4.99 / $4.99CAD) — This is a high-speed NES racer in which you have to save the world by riding exceptionally quickly while bashing into enemies; it's set in 2112, so realism is hardly an issue. While it does include three modes, a track creator and a decent sense of speed.
