Flippin' Kirby

Nintendo of America normally releases details of eShop downloads on the morning of the update, but our source has given us a heads-up on the Virtual Console '8-bit summer' titles that you can look forward to this week. As you've no doubt guessed, the headline Game Boy title is Kirby's Pinball Land, which sees the adorable pink ball take on his enemies on three different tables before a final showdown.

The second Game Boy offering will be The Sword of Hope II, a lesser-known RPG from Kemco. It is, apparently, an epic quest to retrieve magic crystals, but we'll know more once we've had a chance to complete a review.

Do either of these retro titles appeal to you?
