Hello, Monster World IV

Believe your eyes: the Nintendo Download for North America is out, several hours ahead of usual. There's two Virtual Console treats and more to get stuck into, so here's what's up this week.

Virtual Console

Wonder Boy in Monster Land (Virtual Console Arcade, SEGA, 900pts) — Just like Europe, North America gets a double dose of SEGA VC goodness this week with this Virtual Console Arcade release a superior version of the already available Wonder Boy in Monster Land on Master System. We'll review the arcade version for a review soon.

Monster World IV (Genesis, SEGA, 900pts) — The first time MWIV has left Japan, this fully translated release is one of the most anticipated VC releases yet. Find out if it's been worth the wait in our upcoming review.

3DS Download Software

Sudoku by Nikoli (HAMSTER, $4.99, 294 blocks) — 50 sudoku puzzles might not sound like a lot — that's 10 cents a puzzle, maths fans — but it might be a decent time waster for five dollars. We'll let you know soon.


Paul's Shooting Adventure 2 (Agetec, 200pts, 43 blocks) — The sequel to bizarre baby blaster Paul's Shooting Adventure, this promises a new two-player co-operative mode and better graphics. Of course we'll be reviewing this; try not to go gaga in the meantime.

Nintendo Video

Dinosaur Office: Office Party (available May 11 at 6 a.m. PT) — When the office throws an after-work party to celebrate a productive quarter, Craig finds himself in the middle of a dinosaur cat fight.

It's nice to get an early heads-up on the downloads, isn't it? What will you be downloading this week?
