Nintendo releases for this week.

December 29, 2009

Everything

Wow it was a very good day for Nintendos virtual console this week. First, and all most out of the blue, Konami releases Castlevania: The Adventure Rebirth (1000points) for the WiiWare without any formal announcement, the often praised/requested PilotWings (800points) from the SNES is available and for the DSi you can download an updated version of Oregon Trail where your party can die of dysentery in 16bit graphics. Add to that the normal slew of WiiWare games, that you can find more info about after the jump, and you have a solid end to the year for the Virtual Console.
