So, apparently the Nintendo Download for North America was out a few hours ahead of schedule. Sadly, I had to wake up before the sun rose(which is an achievement for me) to take a five hour class before a three hour test(which I finished in an hour). This is the reason why this update is coming so much later than normal, but I’m in a rush to get to my other classes now.
I reported just the other day that VVVVVV is coming to the European 3DS Nintendo eShop. This must have game, that most people have probably already played, can be seen in 3D with reported additional content coming later on. SEGA is also appearing again on the 3DS Virtual console, with Sonic Labyrinth for the 3DS Virtual Console in Europe.
Now, the title that is definitely worth looking at is coming to the Wii Virtual Console in both North America and Europe. Monster World IV is coming overseas for the first time from Japan, and is fully translated and a very anticipated VC release. It is an action platformer that many say is the best of its series.
Wonder Boy in Monster Land (900pts) — Just like Europe, North America gets a double dose of SEGA VC goodness this week with this Virtual Console Arcade release a superior version of the already available Wonder Boy in Monster Land on Master System.
Monster World IV (900pts) — The first time MWIV has left Japan, this fully translated release is one of the most anticipated VC releases yet.

Sudoku by Nikoli ($4.99) — 50 sudoku puzzles might not sound like a lot — that’s 10 cents a puzzle, maths fans — but it might be a decent time waster for five dollars…maybe
Paul’s Shooting Adventure 2 (200pts) — The sequel to bizarre baby blaster Paul’s Shooting Adventure, this promises a new two-player co-operative mode and better graphics.
Dinosaur Office: Office Party — When the office throws an after-work party to celebrate a productive quarter, Craig finds himself in the middle of a dinosaur cat fight.

Sonic Labyrinth (£4.50/€5) — The critically acclaimed… er, wait, that’s a lie. Sonic’s isometric adventure (his second, after arcade release SegaSonic the Hedgehog) isn’t the most fondly-remembered of hedgehog outings…

VVVVVV (£7.20/€8) — Terry Cavanagh’s indie darling reaches Europe nearly six months after its North American launch, but that’s OK because it’s still pretty darn good.
Wii Virtual Console
Wonder Boy in Monster Land (900pts) — Two arcade games in the space of seven days? The benevolent SEGA rains down VC blessings again.
Monster World IV (900pts) — The big one. Originally announced over a year ago, this is the first time MWIV has left Japan, and comes officially translated by SEGA too.
