Nintendo Selects

Nintendo of America plans to follow in the footsteps of its European counterpart and re-release a series of its recent hits through the Nintendo Selects line-up. Each will be available as a physical release for a discounted price. Canadian retailer VGP Video Games Plus leaked the news by accidentally listing the deal.

The games will launch on March 11, and they will cost $29.99 for both the Wii U and Nintendo 3DS releases. The initial list includes plenty of hits and a few misses. Check it out in its entirety below.

  • Animal Crossing: City Folk
  • Donkey Kong Country Returns
  • Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze
  • Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D
  • Mario Party: Island Tour
  • NES Remix Pack
  • Pikmin 3
  • Super Mario All-Stars
  • Super Mario Galaxy 2
  • Super Mario 3D World
  • The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D
  • Yoshi’s New Island

The Donkey Kong and Super Mario games obviously steal the show, and Ocarina of Time on the Nintendo 3DS is still the best version of the classic action/adventure game. But man, I still love me some Yoshi’s New Island. That game got way too much hate when it came out. Still solid I say, and it’s cheaper than ever if you want to take the chance and believe me.

Nintendo has yet to confirm the line-up, so treat this as rumor until it does.
