Grab your hockey sticks and polish those jet skis: both Mario Sports Mix and Wave Race 64 are heading to the Wii U Virtual Console later today!
Originally released on the Wii back in 2011, Mario Sports Mix features a bundle of familiar sports and a variety of Mushroom Kingdom’s finest to allow players to prove who’s the best in either dodgeball, basketball, hockey or volleyball. Having been developed by Square Enix, there are even a few guest appearances from the Final Fantasy and Dragon Quest series to unlock!
Initially a launch title on the Nintendo 64, Wave Race 64 lets players choose between four characters — each with their own unique abilities and style — as they jet ski through nine intense courses for a coveted gold trophy. Notable are the highly realistic water physics and changing weather conditions: a feat that was notoriously difficult to program back in the mid ‘90s.
Mario Sports Mix and Wave Race 64 will be priced at $19.99 and $9.99, respectively.Leave a Comment
