Here are the top 5 best-selling games on Raru this week, and why you should check them out.
This week’s list looks at a variety of games, ranging from role-playing epics to action and sport titles.
“We always strive to ensure that we have the best possible product offering, at the best possible price, and the quickest delivery time on video games,” said Ramone Pickover, Head of Retail for Raru.
Here is a look at this week’s hottest games.
1. Super Mario Maker (Wii U)
Super Mario Maker allows you to create your own Super Mario levels with the Wii U GamePad controller.
Use the GamePad touchscreen to drag and drop elements you want in your levels – place blocks, pipes, lifts, and enemies anywhere, and then play through.
Instantly test and edit your creations on the fly, and if something isn’t working, go back into edit mode to make tweaks until everything is just right.
You can also play a near-limitless number of creative Super Mario levels from players around the world.
Super Mario Maker also includes an exclusive Super Mario Maker art book.
2. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt – Hearts of Stone (PS4)
Hearts of Stone is the first expansion pack for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, an award-winning role-playing game set in a vast fantasy world.
This expansion packs over 10 hours of new adventures; and introduces new characters, powerful monsters, unique romance, and a new storyline shaped by your choices.
It allows you to defeat your foes using a variety of new weapons and enchanted artifacts, and level up even further by fulfilling new monster contracts and battling unique enemies.
Choose your own way through an adventure that includes recruiting a crew of break-in artists, spending a night partying with a ghost, and outsmarting the most bizarre creatures Geralt has ever faced.
There is no disc in the box, only a download code for this expansion – keep this in mind if you are keen to buy it.
CD Projekt Red more than makes up for it, though, as the box includes two physical Gwent card decks.
These Gwent cards are highly-prized items in the game, and having them in a physical form makes them extremely collectible.
Due to this item’s collectible nature, there is limited stock – so act quickly if this is something you need to add to your collection.
