The Nintendo Download 09/05/14: Mega Man II, Mega Man III, and Wario Land 4
Another work week is nearing its end and you Nintendo fans of the g1 nation know what that means, it’s time for a rundown of all the new games that’ll be landing on the Wii U and 3DS eShop throughout the coming week!
After a jam-packed few weeks, things are beginning to be simmer down a little bit over on Nintendo's eShop, as there's not much to talk about in terms of "blockbuster" releases. However, there's still plenty of good stuff coming this week, such as a classic GBA platformer starring Mario's semi-evil doppelganger getting a re-release on Wii U, and the continuation of Mega May over on the 3DS storefront.
The selfish and piggish anti-hero Wario is back and he's about to smash his way through a huge 20-level pyramid in search of more treasures to get his greedy gloves on! There's just one small problem, the pyramid is cursed and filled to the brim with monsters. But in a stroke of luck, the stubby plumber(?) will have an array of new power-ups at his disposal that can transform him into the likes of Flaming Wario, Zombie Wario, and Vampire Wario, making his quest just a little bit easier.
This GBA classic is available right now on the Wii U Virtual Console for $7.99.
Speaking of the Virtual Console, Capcom's Mega May promotion continues over on the 3DS storefront, as a pair of classic Game Boy Mega Man games have finally been released after a waiting period that has eclipsed two years.
