Nintendo finally throws The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past into the Virtual Console.

"This week, the critically acclaimed The Legend of Zelda™: A Link to the Past™ for Super Nintendo is making its way to the Virtual Console for you to download. In this medieval fantasy adventure, players assume the role of Link, a young boy who receives a telepathic cry for help from Princess Zelda. After rescuing her, Link realises a darker plan is at foot and sets out to save Hyrule. With intuitive gameplay and a gripping storyline The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past will have you transfixed and is yours to download for 800 Wii points.

Also available this week is gothic horror classic Castlevania®, from Konami, originally for the Nintendo Entertainment System. One of the earliest games to feature a horror story line, Castlevania pitches a whip-wielding warrior against the evil vampire, Dracula and his minions. Loosely based on Bram Stoker’s ‘Dracula’ and featuring a variety of other characters such as ‘Death’ and ‘Medusa’, the Castlevania franchise has enjoyed huge success since launch. Castlevania is available this week on Wii for 500 Wii points."
