It is now Thursday and we all know what that means, the Nintendo eShop’s have been updated and new games and sales have been added for you to enjoy. More importantly we finally know what is on the North American Nintendo eShop, and this week is about the Virtual Console in terms of highlights. There is not much in terms of special this week but 3DS owners should be excited to get to play Donkey Kong Country 3 on the 3DS as it arrives on the Virtual Console, it is not as good as the first two games but it can be enjoyable for its unique ideas and interesting level designs. On the Wii U Virtual Console you can play Metroid Prime Hunters, this is a DS game but I believe was reasonably loved when it arrived, if you are a fan of Metroid but have not played the game you should at least give it a go. But there is also many other games arriving this week, these were just my personal highlights and you can see the full listings below:
