Japanese Virtual Console list - August 2008

It's the last Friday of the month again, and you know what that means - Nintendo of Japan has revealed their plans for August. There are no big surprises this month, but there is one small surprise that everybody expected: Capcom has managed to sneak an extra release into July to milk out its main franchise even further! Aside from Nintendo releasing one of their more obscure classics, there is nothing too interesting to speak of here.

The full list for August is as follows:

Super Famicom:

  • Gakkou de atta Kowai Hanashi (This is a horror game that takes place in a Japanese highschool. It uses actual photos as pictures in the game.)

Sega Master System:

Sega Mega Drive:
