Rejoice, Metroid fans! One of the greatest entries in the franchise is making its way to the Wii U Virtual Console, and it could be slated for a North American release if we're lucky enough. Metroid: Zero Mission is headed for the Japanese Virtual Console next week for roughly $10. 

Originally released for Game Boy Advance back in 2004, Metroid: Zero Mission is an excellent remake of the original Metroid. For the uninformed, it improved on the first game in several ways, making it truly one of the greats. And if it makes its way over to the North American Wii U Virtual Console, you should absolutely do yourself a favor and pick it up, even if it's just to see Zero Suit Samus for the first time. 

We'll let you know if a Western release is imminent, of course, but for now let's treat this as a good omen.

Shovel Knight looks great in 16-bit, Aegis Defenders just looks great

Oh my goooddd. How did I miss this until now? It's like a Nausicaa game. Thank you sir Shovel Knight for making a cross over appearance (above) in Aegis Defenders, which is how it came to my attention.  The Kickstarter already passed its initial funding goal and its PS4 stretch goal. Local co-op and a Wii U version are up next. Here's hoping. This looks amazing. more
