Better late than never

Two venerable classics come to Nintendo's various Virtual Consoles this week, but both bear a few interesting tweaks. Here's what Europe can download later on in the week.

3DS Virtual Console

The Legend of Zelda (NES, Nintendo, £4.50/€5, 54 blocks) — The original title comes to non-Ambassadors, complete with handy features like restore points. Is Link's first adventure still worth picking up in this day and age? Our review will tell you soon.

Wii Virtual Console

Super Street Fighter II (Mega Drive, SEGA, 800pts) — We've already got the (arguably superior) Super NES version of Super Street Fighter II on Virtual Console, but SEGA's take on the famous fighter features online multiplayer, a Virtual Console first in Europe. We'll put it through its paces in the near future for a review.


Crystal Caverns of Amon-Ra (Selectsoft, 500pts, 56 blocks) — Essentially a DSiWare version of gem-shooter match three Puzz Loop/Luxor/Zuma, this isn't a bad puzzle effort for DSiWare, though how often do we say that? Regardless, here's a Crystal Caverns of Amon-Ra review to help you make up your mind.

I Must Run! (Gamelion, 200pts, 44 blocks) — A DSiWare version of Canabalt, essentially. We'll race to bring you a review soon.

That's your lot this week, folks. Who's buying what?
