Mario Luigi Superstar Saga

In the first of what's going to be weekly waves of Game Boy Advance games, today Nintendo added the first releases to it's eShop platform for the Wii U.

Arriving for purchase today are the following,

Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga: this game is the first in the now long-running handheld RPG franchise. The Mario & Luigi games are known for their turn based combat, humorous dialogue and story, and along with the Paper Mario series, being the spiritual successor to the excellent Super Mario RPG for the SNES.

Metroid Fusion: It's weird to think that this is the last 2D Metroid ever released, but unfortunately that's life, sometimes. Widely regarded as one of the best in the series, Fusion takes the formula established in Super Metroid and brings it to the portable platform, adding more horror elements to the series.

Advance Wars: This was the first release for the series in the United States, but the games have a long history in Japan under the Famicom Wars title. Advance Wars is a bite-sized turn based strategy game that brought a surprising amount of depth and a beefy campaign to the portable system.

Each game is available for $7.99, and in this writers opinion, they're all worth the asking price.
