Prepare for mini mayhem, as Mario vs. Donkey Kong 2: March of the Minis is slowly treading to Wii U Virtual consoles!

Originally released for the Nintendo DS back in 2006, March of the Minis has players guiding mini Mario toys through more than 80 perilous stages in an effort to rescue Pauline from the clutches of Donkey Kong. Controls are handled solely through intuitive use of the touch screen as you indirectly control the surrounding environment to get as many toys to the exit as possible. It’s a clever gimmick that takes great inspiration from Lemmings, providing a refreshingly different spin from its Game Boy and Game Boy Advance predecessors. Most notable is the full featured level designer which allowed players to create and trade their own creations across the globe over wi-fi. You won’t be able to share them here in the Virtual Console version, but thankfully, the editor itself should still be intact.

Mario vs. Donkey Kong 2: March of the Minis will be available tomorrow, October 6th, for $9.99.
