Virtual Console

A bunch of new games are heading to the Japanese New 3DS Virtual Console – twelve specifically. View trailers for the various titles below.

GameXplain has put together a video comparing the emulation of the Super NES Classic Edition and Virtual Console on Wii U. Check it out below.

The New 3DS Virtual Console continues to live on… in Japan at least. Twelve new games are set to hit the service later this week.

The news comes as part of an upcoming summer sale Nintendo will be hosting on the Japanese Wii U and 3DS eShops. More than fifty games will be discounted by 20 percent, with My Nintendo members receiving an extra 20 percent bonus.

The 3DS Virtual Console releases of Pokemon Gold and Pokemon Silver are fast approaching – they will be available to download on September 22. Additionally, Nintendo of Europe announced today that special packaged versions of the games will also be available to purchase in stores on the same day. Naturally they won’t contain a cartridge of the games, but instead just a download. Still, it’s definitely a nice collector’s item.

So far, this has only been confirmed for Europe, but we’d be surprised if Japan and North America weren’t getting boxed releases as well.


This week’s European Nintendo Downloads are as follows:

Switch Download

Severed – €14.99
Rocket Fist – €9.99
Phantom Trigger – €14.99
ACA NeoGeo The King of Fighters 2000 – €6.99
Ironcast – €14.99

Two more games from the TurboGrafx-16 lineup are joining the North American Wii U Virtual Console tomorrow. Nintendo’s website lists Final Soldier and Soldier Blade for release tomorrow.

We have the following overview of Final Soldier:

In the 23rd century, invaders from the future suddenly attack Earth. Controlling a fighter created by the world’s scientists, you rise to meet the enemy. Collect power-up units, such as LASER, E-BEAM, FIRE, and MISSILE, and then equip them in Options to launch a variety of attacks. For each of these weapons, you can freely select from three different types in SET-UP. Anticipate enemies’ strikes and deftly switch between weapons to defeat the invaders! In addition to NORMAL GAME, there are also 2 MINUTE GAME and 5 MINUTE GAME score-attack modes. The most perfect blend and balance of any game in the series, Final Soldier is a title you don’t want to miss.

Victory Run is due out on the European Wii U Virtual Console this week, according to a listing on Nintendo’s website. The page lists the game for release tomorrow.

Here’s an overview:

Victory Run is a racing game modelled on the Paris-Dakar Rally which ran from Paris, France, to Dakar in Senegal.

Experience an all-out, realistic rally race where you have to deal with vehicle damage, from engine failure to transmission breakdown. The scenery even changes depending on the time.

The exhilarating feeling of speed… Intense crash scenes… Keep it runnin’ right to the end of the unforgiving 13,000 km (8,077 miles) long-haul course!

In North America, Victory Run is already available. The game costs $5.99.
