With most of the Black Friday madness dealt with, let's talk things for the weekend.

North America has a couple of odder titles in the "new content" category this week. The Wii U gets the Metroid-like Exile's End, a recent jumper from the PlayStations courtesy of XSEED (see Zach's review), while the 3DS ups its RPG power level one last time (for this year) with Dragon Ball Fusions. Stupid dance not included, but that's what the sales are for.

The Virtual Console has a great sequel this week, a game that took some creative risks on a rapid turnaround for the same console and ended up ranging from "bollocks" to "GOAT". It also ended a long standing Nintendo policy. I speak, of course, of the newest member of the New 3DS's Virtual Console, Breath of Fire II. There's also a Zelda game on Wii U, but you're probably better off snagging one of the Zelda games out of Nintendo's Black Friday sale instead.

Europe marks the end of hiding your Pokémon Sun and Moon spoilers on social media, as the games finally come out following the punishment period. Nice to see #TeamPopplio expanding overseas. There's also a rollup release - don't be confused, Animal Crossing New Leaf is already on the eShop, this is just a higher priced release that includes the patch. Following a couple of weeks off, the VC returns to Europe with Beat the Beat: Rhythm Paradise (aka Rhythm Heaven Fever).

Interesting to note that (in North America?) Majora's Mask on Wii U doesn't offer any discount for people who own the Wii Virtual Console equivalent.  This is the first time I remember seeing a title on both that didn't give a nice discount... and while not a big deal because I could just use the Wii Virtual Console anyway it is kind of disappointing.
