3DS Virtual Console

Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins (Game Boy, Nintendo, $3.99) — One of Mario's best portable outings, this joins stablemate Super Mario Land for download via the 3DS eShop. We'll have our full verdict soon.


escapeVektor: Chapter 1 (Nnooo, 500pts) — You've probably read our exclusive features, but now you can play Nnooo's retro-styled arcade game for yourself. We'll have a full review in the near future.
