The Sword of Hope II will arrive on Europe's 3DS Virtual Console next week on 9th August.

The Game Boy RPG, which came out on North America's eShop a couple of weeks ago, follows Prince Theo as he tries to retrieve the Sword of Hope, stop an evil spirit and clear his name of murder. All in a day's work.

You'll be able to recruit allies and set out for world-saving antics next week for £2.70 / €3.00. In the mean time, our Sword of Hope II review might convince you that this is the adventure for you.
