This area will be familiar if you've played other Wonder Boy games!

Wonder Boy in Monster Land is the second game in the Wonder Boy series and the first to introduce more RPG elements. Unlike later games however, it still clearly has some features from the original game, such as the fact it's rock-hard! If you don't count imports and different versions of games already on Virtual Console, this will likely be the last "unique" Wonder Boy game released on the VC outside Japan.

As usual, that's it for VC! On WiiWare this week, there's a bit of a deviation from the norm, because there's only one new game instead of two - Niki - Rock 'n' Ball, also released in Europe a while ago, is the only new game.
