Not so Mighty?

We usually put our North American Nintendo Download update live later in the week when the official word hits the street, but every now and then we get a bit of a heads-up on forthcoming releases — and today is one of those times.

A listing for Mighty Bomb Jack has appeared on the North American Wii U eShop which lists the NES title as part of this week's as-yet-unannounced update.

The Tecmo Koei game is already available on the Wii and 3DS Virtual Consoles. In our critique of the latter, we were less than enthusiastic. "If you like your difficult NES action games, then perhaps you can get a little bit of fun out of Mighty Bomb Jack," uttered our review. "However, we suspect that most players will become too frustrated — or perhaps bored — to make the effort."

Will you be one of the people making the effort later this week? Or will you save your cash for more worthy titles? Tell us with a comment.
