eShop Update: Virtual Console Goodness at a Discount
There is a lot of love on both Virtual Consoles this week, and the Wii U’s springs to life with some deals you can’t pass up. We will head to the 3DS first where two classics await. Harvest Moon (the GBC version) hits this week as well as Mega Man 5. The Mega Man train keeps pumping the NES titles out in very quick succession. Both titles will run you $4.99. The first of the Level-5 developed titles hits the 3DS with The Starship Damrey. The Starship Damrey is an adventure title, that rewards exploration and self-discovery. The Starship Damrey is your spooky ship to investigate for $7.99. The Wii U gets some VC love this week with the next title in the 30 Anniversary Trial Series, Super Metroid. I nabbed this game yesterday sat down to just play it for a bit, then looked up an realized three hours just went by. To add to the Nintendo VC goodness, Super Mario 2 (NES) and Super Ghouls & Ghost (SNES) join in on the retro fun. Now for a great deal, if you own Super Mario World on the Wii U Virtual Console, you can get Super Mario 2 at half price. You get both games for less than $10. Add Super Metroid in there for .30 and for less than a pizza you can have some of the best gaming available on the Wii U. I snagged the deal just a few minutes ago and while I wait for the next big release on the Wii U, it is turning into a great classic gaming cornucopia. One last deal to note, Bit Trip Presents: Runner2 Future Legend of Rhythm Alien is 25 percent off, throwing it at around the $11 range, which is awesome since the game has more content than most $60 titles.
A friendly reminder, there will be a Nintendo Direct Tomorrow morning at 10am EST. The Nintendo Direct will cover both the 3DS and the Wii U. If you want to catch the announcements tomorrow live, you can watch it right here. I will be covering it as well if you do not get around to seeing what’s in store for the Nintendo realm.
