Smash Bros. Wii U, 3DS DLC concludes this week with Bayonetta, Corrin

Super Mario Galaxy shoots onto Wii U Virtual Console.

The final DLC packs for Super Smash Bros. 3DS and Wii U arrive this week, in the shape of new fighters Bayonetta and Corrin.

Bayonetta fighting Duck Hunt Dog. What a time to be alive.

Gun-toting witch Bayonetta arrives in the game after being named in a player poll of most-wanted add-on characters.

Surprise addition Corrin - yet another Fire Emblem representative - is the star of forthcoming role-player Fire Emblem Fates, which launched in Japan last year.

Bayonetta comes in a pack with a new stage for £5.39 (or £6.29 for both 3DS and Wii U).

Corrin turns up by himself for £4.49 (or £5.39 for both platforms).

This week also sees the launch of the final Mii Fighter costume DLC, including outfits and hats to make your Mii look like Sonic's Tails and Knuckles, as well as Wario Ware's Ashley.

There will also be bundles to pick up all of the game's collected DLC fighters and/or stages at a small discount.

Last but certainly not least - Super Mario Galaxy. One of the Wii's finest games - if not one of the finest games, full stop - is getting a new lease of life on Wii U.

The gravity-bending Mario platformer will arrive for digital download this Thursday, priced at £17.99.
