US Nintendo eShop update: Free Disney Infinity

Figure and compatible base required to play

The downloadable version of Disney Infinity is now free on Wii U eShop, letting players who already have their accessories ready jump into the game on Nintendo's platform.

A compatible Disney Infinity base and at least one figure are required before any of the game modes, including missions, Play Sets and the Toy Box creation set, can be accessed.

Virtual Console on Wii U

Mega Man 6 - Every Thursday in August, Nintendo and Capcom are bringing classic Mega Man games to the Virtual Console service in the Nintendo eShop on Wii U. This week: Mega Man 6, which originally launched on NES. On the eve of the Grand Championship of the First Annual Robot Tournament, Mr. X announced that the entire tournament was just a scheme to get his hands on the world's most powerful robots. Mega Man must battle through 16 levels to defeat his ferocious new foe. Click here to watch a trailer for the game.
Life Force - Blast your way through six stages of intense action and take on wave after wave of enemies, alternating between horizontal- and vertical-scrolling environments.

Virtual Console on Nintendo 3DS
