Well, it's happened. The PS4 and Vita may have a cooler Virtual Console release than Wii U and 3DS this week - well, sort of.

Super Star Wars, the extremely tricky but fun SNES action platformer is coming to the PS4 and Vita in this week's North American PSN update, though it'll have some neat extras. From the PlayStation Blog:

Enhanced for PS4 with new save features, leaderboards, Trophies, and updated display and controller options. Risk your life as a Jedi Knight! Join Luke, Han, and Chewbacca in their fierce war against the evil Empire.

It's not the first game from classic Nintendo hardware to be emulated and released elsewhere, of course, with Rare Replay on Xbox One being a sore one for some. This week we do know that Europe is getting Animal Crossing: Wild World on the Wii U VC, though, and players in Europe and North America can still buy all three entries of Super Star Wars for 800 points each on the Wii Virtual Console; these can also be accessed via the Wii U's 'Wii Mode', don't forget.
