Posted on November 29, 2017 by (@NE_Brian) in News, Wii U eShop

Two more classics are joining the Wii U Virtual Console in North America this week. Nintendo’s website lists Bomberman ’93 and Battle Lode Runner for tomorrow.

Below is an overview of each game:

Bomberman ’93

“Bomberman ’93 is the exciting, powered-up version that followed the original Bomberman! With 6 rounds, each containing 8 stages, the single-player Normal Mode provides all the fun you can handle in its 48 different stages! Blast all of your enemies and find the hidden exit within the time limit to progress to the next stage. The “kick” function appears for the first time in this version of Bomberman, and you can really start using cunning tactics in your game play! Make the most of the traps and the new items to beat the game with a perfect record!”

Battle Lode Runner

“Gold funds have been stolen from the Time Machine Research Center, and the group responsible used a time machine to escape and hide the gold throughout time. The center sends an elite team of “Runners” to go and retrieve the gold. This upgraded edition to the famous Lode Runner series includes a 5-player versus mode.”

Bomberman ’93 and Battle Lode Runner will be priced at $5.99 a piece.

    I find this funny. I was looking at the Virtual Console’s history the other day. On the Wii, literally the same week the console launched, Bomberman ’93 was put on the Wii Shop Channel. Yet here we are with the Wii U getting the same game months after the console has been presumed dead by most.

      I don’t know why but the pace of VC on Wii was god level

      • Adrian Brown

        also, VC games played through the Wii U Wii mode look incredibly good.

        • Aline Piroutek

          N64 is even cooler on Wii mode. Without Gamepad support though.

          • Adrian Brown

            yeah I play Mario 64 on Wii mode, but wouldn’t do it on Wii U menu because N64 games look darker and they have some input delay.

        • Blake Good

          Almost everything on Wii U looks like crap, except for SNES and GBA games. NES and N64 games have a worse conversion the rest. I mean in Wii Mode, they don’t have those dark boarders and the sound isn’t as quiet.

          • Adrian Brown

            SNES game look really really good, maybe as well as SNES Classic. I don’t understand why NES games look that bad.

          • Blake Good

            SNES games look way better on the N3DS and SNESC, but they’re not bad looking on the Wii U, unlike NES and N64 games.

          • Aline Piroutek

            The DS VC is crap. Compare de “filtering” of GBA and the DS. Totaly trash.

          • Blake Good

            Yes, I agree and they couldn’t even bother to allow you to have top and bottom screens in their right places.

            Oh so I guess you worked with them to know how “lazy” they are? Well, tell me Nintendo worker, how lazy are they from the time you worked with them?

    If only Castlevania: Rondo of Blood would get re-released, then I would be happy.
