For a third week running Nintendo’s eShop roster is taking us back to the past. That’s to say, it’s another week filled with Virtual Console releases and very little else.


On Wii U VC there’s HAL’s cult classic puzzler Adventures of Lolo (£3.49) and also the equally classic scrolling brawler Double Dragon II: The Revenge (£3.49). Acclaim published Double Dragon II back in the day; with that publisher long gone, you’ve got Arc System Works to thank for this re-release.

3DS owners meanwhile are being treated to yet another Mega Man game – the Game Boy’s Mega Man 4 (£3.59). Mega Man 3 was re-released last week and Mega Man 2 the week before. As such, logic dictates that we’ll soon be on the receiving end of Mega Man V.

Also arriving on 3DS this Thursday – demos of Tomodachi Life and the apparently mediocre Bit Boy!! ARCADE.

As for the week’s discounts, Nano Assault Neo and Chasing Aurora on Wii U drop to £6.70 and £2.99 respectively while Nano Assault EX on 3DS falls to £6.35. On-rails shooter VAN HELSING SNIPER ZX100 likewise gets a cut, from the highly amusing price of £6.66 down to £2.69. Well, that puts a temporary end to that joke doesn’t it?
