Nazo no Murasame-jou on US 3DS August 7 ⊟
Nintendo announced on its SDCC stream (via Wario64) that this Famicom Disk System game, never before released in North America, will be on 3DS Virtual Console August 7. It came out in Europe back in May.
Here’s a cool thing: this game was one of the demos shown off back at E3 2010, along with Mega Man 2, Super Mario Bros. and some other stuff. Back then, Nintendo was showing them off as 3D updates like the 3D Classics series, but yeah.
So pumped about finally being able to buy and play this game! I have a Disk System, but didn’t pick the game up with it for whatever reason; also my Disk System doesn’t work.
I’ve posted some GIFs and other stuff for this here.
I wrote about 10 strangely obscure Nintendo games this morning, because if you’re going to make a list video and feature it might as well be about something no one cares about.
