Here we go:

Mario Kart Double Dash

The latest in the acclaimed Mario Kart series is here, and this time, you won't be racing alone! Each kart holds two racers, so choose from Mario, Luigi, Peach, Baby Mario, Baby Luigi, Yoshi, Birdo, Wario, Waluigi, Donkey Kong, Diddy Kong, Bowser, Bowser Jr., Koopa, and Paratroopa and pair them up any way you see fit. The character in front handles the driving duties, while the character in the rear doles out damage with six normal items and eight special items that only specific characters can use. Racers can swap places at any time, so switch it up on the fly to make the best use of your items as you tear around curves and over huge elevation changes.

Advance Wars 2 - Black Hole Rising

Sturm, the cruel master of the Black Hole Army, has found a way to drain the resources of every country in Cosmo Land, and somebody has to stop him! You'll have the help of all-new COs, as well as all the original ones, now boasting new and improved CO Powers. Master new Super CO Powers like Typhoon to rain destruction on your enemies and bring them to a standstill. Discover the power of the massive neotank, and earn the right to deploy these powerful units in battle. Hundreds of new battle maps await you in this sequel to the awardwinning, turn-based strategy title Advance Wars. With both single- and multi-Pak game modes and a map designer that lets you create your own battlefields, you and your friends will never run out of ways to play!


Prepare for the future of racing! Nintendo and SEGA-both accomplished masters of high-speed fun-have collaborated to create the fastest, most visually stunning racing game of all time! Hunt for turbo boosts as you battle aggressive racers through obstacle-studded straightaways, along the inside and outside of pipes, and over massive jumps. You'd better be ready to race for the long haul with 20 courses and over 30 pilots to choose from! When you use a Memory Card with F-Zero Arcade, you can transfer new pilots or machine parts that you can use for customization on your Nintendo GameCube. You can even race your home-built machine in the arcade.

Pimkin 2

The company he works for is going bankrupt, so to save it, Olimar must salvage the treasure buried all over the planet. His company's debt is a whopping 10,000 pokos- luckily, Olimar brought an assistant, so if the two of them can delegate their work well, they should be able to erase that debt in no time! Of course, they'll need the help of the Pikmin to do that-these two can't do anything by themselves. Alternate controlling the main characters-Olimar and his assistant-as you command your Pikmin to defeat enemies, propagate more Pikmin, collect precious doodads, and solve puzzles. With no time limit, new colors of Pikmin, and two-player cooperative play, Pikmin 2 improves on the original in every way.


Wario finally built his castle, and he's so happy that he just can't stop smiling. What he doesn't realize is that hidden among his treasures is a strange black jewel with an awful ability-it can turn gems into monsters! With Wario blissfully ignorant on his throne, the jewel transforms his treasure trove and opens a doorway to a mysterious parallel world. In the ensuing chaos, Wario gets yanked through the doorway...but he's not fazed. He's focused on one thing-getting his loot back. Get pumped for a rolling good time as Wario uses pile drivers, head butts, and a variety of over-the-top fighting moves to battle an endless tide of weird and wild enemies. You'll have to use your head to solve puzzles as you navigate enormous areas and try to find every last one of Wario's lost treasures. Let the brawling begin.

Kirby - Air Ride

The creators of Super Smash Bros. Melee bring you Kirby's Air Ride, a racing game like no other. By applying the simple controls that define all Kirby games, Kirby's Air Ride brings the racing genre to gamers of all abilities, making it so anyone can just pick up and play. Single-button game play controls all the action, brake and slide around corners with a press of the A Button or hold and charge up as you slide, then release for break-neck acceleration. Of course, Kirby wouldn't be Kirby if he weren't copying enemy abilities and using them to his advantage, so prepare for some wild and wacky transformations! Slide and glide in 3-D racing, or ready yourself for a race for power-ups as you enter multiplayer tournament battles. Kirby's never been so fast and so fun!
