Japanese 3DS owners can continue their journey through Wario's wicked world next week when Wario Land II reaches the Virtual Console.

While here in the West we got two versions of Wario's sophomore outing — one for Game Boy and a revamped Game Boy Color release — Japan only got the colour game, so that's the version heading to the service. Hopefully that means those outside Japan will get the GBC version too, though as North America is still waiting for Wario Land: Super Mario Land 3 it could be quite a wait.

3DS Ambassadors can already play Wario Land 4 so it's good to see Nintendo fleshing out its anti-hero's back catalogue on Virtual Console.
