Recca, Wario Land 3, Mario 3, Tecmo Bowl
Nintendo has announced today that a number of games will be coming to the North American Virtual Console, most notably the ultra rare shoot ’em up Summer Carnival ’92: Recca. Recca was known to be one of the biggest technical achievements at the time, and copies now go for upwards of $400 or more.
It hit the Japanese 3DS Virtual Console late last year, and now, it’s coming here with the timeline of “soon.” As a shmup fan, I’m really excited to try it out. In other news, Donkey Kong (NES) is coming soon, as is the great Wario Land 3, which is hitting the 3DS VC on August 29th. Super Mario Bros. 3 (3DS, Wii U) and Tecmo Bowl are coming later this year.
