Double Dragon II

Nintendo of America has taken the opportunity, in its standard Download Update details, to confirm two games that'll be arriving on the Wii U Virtual Console in the next two weeks. They're both familiar NES titles, though with Capcom keeping the lid on the running order for its month of Mega Man releases this doesn't represent the full line-up.

So, what are these two retro treats on the way? The answer is below.

Double Dragon II pleasingly adds co-op play, which was surprisingly missing from the original NES entry, though is perhaps still showing its age a little. Life Force, meanwhile, is an iconic sidescrolling shooter that's still a lot of fun to this day.

Are you looking forward to these titles, and are you tempted to pick either of them up?
