US Nintendo eShop update for the Week Detailed

Posted on News

Nintendo has updated the eShop in the US with it’s new batch of digital content, and it’s not as robust as last week’s update.  Super NES fans will welcome the arrival of Pilotwings on the Wii U Virtual Console, the game is really the only big highlight coming from the update.  If you were a fan of the original game in the arcades, then you’ll probably end up enjoying it just as much as you did the first time you played it.

Here’s the full list:

Virtual Console on Wii U

Pilotwings – Join the Flight Club to take to the skies and experience a variety of aerial activities in the original Pilotwings game for the Super NES console. Take off and pilot a biplane through rings, or drift serenely in a hang glider. Strap on the rocket belt to blast your way around an obstacle course. And if that’s not enough, reach maximum velocity as you tackle a skydiving lesson at 3,800 feet.

Virtual Console on Nintendo 3DS

Sonic Drift 2 – Start your engines and prepare for the race of your life in this classic racer that was originally released for Game Gear. Choose from seven of your favorite Sonic characters, including Sonic, Knuckles and Dr. Eggman, and race your way to the finish line. Use each racer’s special ability to gain an edge over the competition and win the fabled Chaos Emeralds.
