Nintendo of America will get two Virtual Console games a week in July, including Wario Land.

Nintendo of America announced a July promotion for the eShop called 8-Bit Summer, where two new 3DS Virtual Console games will come each week, including The Legend of Zelda, Kirby's Pinball Land, and Wario Land.

The lineup, as known right now, follows:

  • Kirby's Pinball Land - July 12
  • The Sword of Hope II - July 12
  • Kid Icarus: Of Myths and Monsters - July 19
  • Tumblepop - July 19
  • Wario Land: Super Mario Land 3 - July 26
  • Sonic Blast
  • Sonic Labyrinth

While I would argue that this shouldn't be some special occasion and we should be getting this kind of support EVERY week, I'll take what I can get. Support has been more regular lately and there are good games here. Or maybe that they took the bar so low recently that anything seems good to me.


Finally. It's been too damn long.

Also, we might be the first region to get Kirby's Pinball Land. And Sword of Hope II is apparently a GB RPG. Came out on Japanese eShop a few weeks back.

You get Wario, we finally got Mutant Mudds this week.

Kind of unfortunate that only two of the games are worth playing, but forgivable since those two games are pretty awesome.

I am planning on purchasing Wario, Kirby Pinball, and Kid Icarus.

Why not get the 3D Classics version of Kid Icarus?  It's improved all around according to most reviews.  I guess some people might have nostalgia for the original version, but I'd rather pay a little extra to have the "better" version.

Of Myths and Monsters is a different game from the NES game.

I'm so weak for GB VC games. I'll get, like, all of these. I don't know how I feel about that.

Indeed it is. Ignore my previous statement. I wasn't stopping to think, and just assumed that because the 3D Classics game was portable it was linked to Myths and Monsters instead of the NES original.
