Nintendo Download: Mega Man 5 and Super Metroid

Super Mario Bros. 2, Super Ghouls 'n Ghosts, it's retro week!

Today is not a particularly shiny Nintendo Download day, as the bulk of it is retro-centric. The Wii U will actually be getting a few things this week, with Super Mario Bros. 2 on the Wii U Virtual Console, as well as Super Ghouls 'n Ghosts. If you own Super Mario World, you'll get Mario 2 for a discounted price of $2.49. Also, Nintendo debuted Super Metroid for $0.30 last night. On May 21st, Resident Evil Revelations and LEGO Batman 2 will be getting full retail eShop releases. If you haven't checked out Runner 2 yet (it's excellent), it's on sale for $11.25 until May 30th.

On the 3DS side, Level-5's Guild02 debuts on the eShop with Starship Damrey, which I'm interested to check out. You'll also be getting Swords and Soliders 3D, Bowling Bananza, California Super Sports, and Dress to Play: Magic Bubbles. The 3DS Virtual Console will nab Mega Man 5, as well as Harvest Moon. Strangely, the Wii Virtual Console is getting King of Fighters '99.

If you missed last week's installment, here it is.

As for what I'm getting, I'm already playing Super Metroid for the hundredth time, and I can't resist Mega Man 5.
