Nintendo has released the latest batch of Virtual Console titles, and this week they offer a few classics. Check them out...


The Legend of Kage - NES
500 Points

This classic ninja-action game first appeared in arcades in 1985 and became instantly popular. As the Iga ninja named “Kage," players embark on an action-packed quest as they move toward a magic castle where the Princess “Kiri” is held captive by "Yohshirou Yukikusa." To stay alive, move vertically and horizontally through forest and castle environments and execute massive jumps, all the while using throwing-star knives and a sword to take down hordes of enemies.

Donkey Kong Country - SNES
800 Ponts

Donkey Kong Country is an incredible island adventure and the first game to feature Donkey Kong’s sidekick, Diddy Kong. Challenged by the crazed tribe of reptilian Kremlings, the Kongs face their cunning adversaries armed with lightning-quick moves, chest-pounding muscle, and awesome aerial acrobatics. The duo also gets help from a host of friends and family, from Funky Kong, Cranky Kong and Candy Kong, to Rambi the rhino, Expresso the ostrich, Enguarde the swordfish, Squawks the parrot and Winky the frog. This game has over 30 levels plus dozens of hidden caves and secret rooms—more than 100 areas in all. Help the Kongs recover their stolen banana hoard!

Throw hatchets and boomerangs, hop on skateboards, and guide Master Higgins safely to the goal in each area! New Adventure Island consists of 7 exciting stages!
