European VC Update: BEST WEEK EVER!!

One game returns to the VC for good and one game comes to bring joy and glory to all who sail in her. You'll need 1,500 points this week because both games are cast iron buys.

Game 1 - Super Mario Bros: The Lost Levels
NES - 600 Points

An import game means a bigger price, the insanely hard sequel to Super Mario Bros now returns to the VC for the first time since the 2007 Hanabi Festival. This time however the game is here for good, you should still be picking it up straight away though. It'll give you something to play when you're breaking from the other game we have today.

Game 2 - Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars
SNES - 900 Points

As you may have already seen, the Americans are gathering up the torches and pitchforks ready to storm Nintendo of America because yet again Europe has outclassed you in the VC stakes bitches.

Its an RPG masterpiece from Squaresoft, a combination of brilliant JRPG and superior Nintendo platforming. Now its also less than £7, so get your points together and get this damn game onto your Wii's memory.

How do you top a week like that? We got Galaga Legions on XBLA, one of the best PSN weeks in ages and this brilliant pairing on the Virtual Console. No matter what your download service of choice, this has been a brilliant week.

And Castle Crashers is next week.


It appears that these 2 games are heralding the arrival of another 3 weeks of Hanabi Festival, so we'll have another 2 VC weeks of imports after this one. Expect the likes of DoReMi Fantasy and Ys Book 1+2 before this thing closes down again.

njsykora is pronounced like this.

Yeah it would be easier if it were spelt njsikora but it doesn't look as cool does it?
