Konami goes a little bit crazy with VC releases on the Wii U this week.

It’s a Konami filled release week on the Wii U Virtual Console here in Japan. On top of the usual stuff, there is a bit more to what’s available this week. On the Nintendo 3DS front, Aqua Moto Racing 3D hit the digital store, Super Mario-kun manga is available (for a hefty price), and a demo for the next iteration in the Gaist Crusher series all make appearances.

The Wii U, while not getting any traditional downloadable titles, is seeing five different classic releases on the Virtual Console. Among them is the GBA launch title Castlevania: Circle of the Moon, a creepy school based adventure game called Gakkō Deatta Kowai Hanashi (roughly translated as Scary Stories at School), Final Fight 2, and a few others. For a complete look at all of the releases in Japan this week, be sure to check out the round-up below!
