Wii U eShop updates - 3/20/14 (North America)

There are a handful of new games available on the North American Wii U eShop this week. Pure Chess has arrived at an affordable price, and supports cross-platform play between Wii U, 3DS, Android, and iOS players. In addition, the NES title Volleyball has arrived on the Virtual Console, and a new game called Hello Kitty Cruisers will be available to purchase starting tomorrow. If you're looking to pick up something for cheaper than usual, there is a trio of games currently on sale, including Darksiders II, Jeopardy!, and Wheel of Fortune. For those of you who don't see anything that appeals to you, it might interest you to know that all Wii U owners will have free access to Wii Sports Club this weekend, allowing you to play remastered versions of Tennis, Bowling, and Golf. Details and videos after the break.
