         multiplayer and more fun ways to play. Use your Wii U GamePad
         controller to create your own worlds in the Toy Box or activate
         missions and unlock toys in Play Sets. With Disney Infinity, the
         possibilities are endless. (A Disney Infinity Figure and Base, sold

         game.) Click here to watch a trailer for the game.

       *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. Go at it alone, or invite a
         friend to pilot another ship and assist in the challenge. Do you have
         what it takes to save your planet from the monstrous Zelos? Click
         here to watch a trailer for the game.

       *Xtreme Sports – Choose your hero and master sports like
         Skateboarding, In-Line Skating, Street Luge, Skyboarding and Surfing
         to become crowned the Xtreme Sports Champion. Can main characters
         Guppi and Fin battle their way to the top, or will they fall victim
         to the mischievous Bonehead Gang? Find out in this original mixture
         of sports, adventure and role-playing. The game features more than
         400 competitors, multiple modes, power-ups and a tropical island lush

In addition to video games available at retail stores, Nintendo also offers a
variety of content that people can download directly to their systems.
Nintendo adds new games weekly to the Nintendo eShop on the Wii U console and
the Nintendo 3DS family of systems, the Nintendo DSi^™ Shop for the Nintendo
DSi system and the Wii^™ Shop Channel for the Wii console.

The Nintendo eShop is a cash-based service that features a wide variety of
content, including new and classic games, applications and demos. Users can
add money to their account balances by using a credit card or purchasing a
Nintendo eShop Card at a retail store and entering the code from the card. All
funds from one card must be loaded in the Nintendo eShop on either Wii U or
the Nintendo 3DS family of systems, but can be used in either Nintendo eShop
if the systems are linked to a single Nintendo Network account.

The Wii Shop Channel offers games and applications and uses Wii Points^™,
which can be purchased via the Wii Shop Channel. The Nintendo DSi Shop offers
games and applications and uses Nintendo DSi Points^™, which can be purchased
in the Nintendo DSi Shop. A Wii Points Card^™ and Nintendo DSi Points Card^™
can be purchased at retail locations. All points from one card must be
redeemed in either the Wii Shop Channel or the Nintendo DSi Shop,
respectively. They are not transferable and cannot be divided between the two
systems.

Remember that Wii U, Wii, Nintendo 3DS, Nintendo 3DS XL, Nintendo 2DS and
Nintendo DSi feature parental controls that let adults manage some of the
content their children can access. For more information about this and other
features, visit http://www.nintendo.com/wiiu or http://www.nintendo.com/3ds.
