Virtual Console

For the release of Pokemon Gold and Pokemon Silver on the 3DS Virtual Console, Nintendo offered boxed versions in Europe. They ultimately don’t amount to much, but for collectors, they’re nice to have. Get a closer look in the unboxing video below.

Pokemon Gold and Pokemon Silver are the newest releases on the 3DS Virtual Console. However, the third game in the series has been left out. Currently no announcements have been made about bringing Pokemon Crystal to the Virtual Console. Interestingly though, one dataminer says he’s found code that could point to Crystal launching eventually.

Apparently, data was found within a patch in the ROM fileworks for Pokemon Gold and Pokemon Silver on 3DS. This is the same person who initially leaked the existence of Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga + Bowser’s Minions, which was eventually announced at E3 earlier in the year.


Maybe Pokemon Crystal will be distributed further down the road? Only time will tell.

Update: Pokemon Gold footage added.


Original: Pokemon Silver (along with Pokemon Gold) is finally here on the Virtual Console. Take a look at some footage below.

Pokemon Gold and Pokemon Silver are arriving on the 3DS Virtual Console tomorrow. In Japan, however, both are already available.

These games are pretty much identical to their original versions. Serebii does have some information about one change in the Japanese version though. Jynx’s sprite has been altered to match the international releases similar to Pokemon Yellow. Jynx’s face was originally colored black many years ago, but was changed to purple following some controversy.

Two more games are joining the North American Wii U Virtual Console this week. Tomorrow, the eShop is adding Shockman and Chew Man Fu.

Here’s an overview of Shockman:

It’s been two years since Arnold and Sonya were made into Shockmen. A message from the professor to return to their bodies has them head to his laboratory, but they are ambushed by a mysterious enemy along the way. After narrowly defeating the enemy, they catch a TV news flash announcing the Ryo Empire invasion. They find that the professor’s been abducted and set out to rescue him.

And Chew Man Fu:

It’s up to you as an apprentice female monk to free the towers and lift Chew’s curse to bring peace and fried rice back to the land once ruled by the Egg Roll Dynasty. The rules are simple! Your objective is to clear each round by pushing or pulling four colored orbs onto their matching colored tiles. Beware the sorcerer’s minions in the tower who stand in your way! Kick the orbs to take your enemies out or to break down walls! Overcome the obstacles and place the orbs on their respective tiles! Chew Man Fu also features the 2-player Kick Ball minigame, as well as an Edit Mode for creating your own unique stages! The fun is endless!

Shockman and Chew Man Fu will cost $5.99 each.
