Over the past few weeks, it seems that Nintendo of America has been keen to play catch up with the European Virtual Console. That trend looks set to continue, as this week's update will be including not one, but two DS games that are arriving nearly a year later on from their initial eShop debut. As always, better late than never, right?

The two games are Kirby: Canvas Curse and Animal Crossing: Wild World, both of which have popped up on Nintendo's site with release dates set for this week. Both of these games went on to spawn excellent Wii U sequels in the same vein, in Kirby and the Rainbow Curse and, wellAnimal Crossing: New Leaf for the 3DS. Still, for those of you looking that were impressed by those later titles, it might be worth your while to check these out.

What do you think? Will you be picking these up? What other games would you like to see on the VC in the near future? Drop us a comment in the section below.
