Wario Land: Shake It! and Excitebike 64 arrive on the Wii U eShop today

Jason Clement

If you haven't been paying attention as of late, the eShop has been surprisingly steady with Virtual Console releases since earlier last Summer now. Today brings two pretty big, high-profile releases to the Wii U eShop in the form of Wario Land: Shake It! and the never-before-released-digitally Excitebike 64.


Wario Land: Shake It! was actually developer Good Feel's first big AAA game that they developed. It also preceded the two games they'd become best known for creating: Kirby's Epic Yarn and last year's Yoshi's Woolly World. Shake It! also features hand-drawn animated visuals that were created in conjunction with with animation studio Production I.G.


As for Excitebike 64, it was the first sequel to the classic NES game, and the only 3D entry in the series so far. Surprisingly, it also came out later in the Nintendo 64's lifecycle than most games, having released in 2000 (with 2001 being the last active year for N64 releases before Gamecube took over).


In any case, both games are definitely worth looking into if you've never played either. You can download Wario Land: Shake It! for $19.99 and Excitebike 64 for $9.99.


It's worth noting that, while both are out of print, you may still be able to find used physical copies of the former for less than the VC price if you look hard enough.


Will you be checking out either game soon?
