The options for colourful Virtual Console games in Japan keep on growing: after The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening DX kicked off the chromatic revolution back in June, the Japanese service has grown to welcome three more GBC titles, while Western gamers still have just the one. Next week the gap widens further, with Blaster Master: Enemy Below — known as Meta Fight EX in Japan — on the way.

Joining Trade & Battle: Card Hero and Balloon Fight GB on the service, Blaster Master: Enemy Below is a sequel to the original Blaster Master on NES, which has since had another follow-up in the form of Blaster Master: Overdrive.

The good news is that the ESRB has rated the game for digital release, meaning we should see it reach the West before too long.
