Virtual Console Monday – Super Mario Bros 3, Alien Soldier, and Power Golf


Heralding the upcoming release of Super Mario Galaxy, SMB3 is now available for Virtual Console!

Super Mario Bros. 3 – NES – 500 Wii Points
Remember when no one had ever heard of a Tanooki Suit or knew that Bowser had a clan of Koopalings? The game that made these things common knowledge is also considered by many to be one of the best ever made. Bowser and the Koopalings are causing chaos yet again, but this time they’re going beyond the Mushroom Kingdom into the seven worlds that neighbor it. Now Mario and Luigi must battle new enemies, returning favorites and a new Koopaling in each unique and distinctive world on their way to ultimately taking on Bowser himself.

Alien Soldier – Genesis – 900 Wii Points
As Epsilon-Eagle, you are an alien soldier who has been genetically engineered to produce maximum intelligence and strength. Choose from six different weapons and battle the bosses of Scarlet until you reach the final confrontation with the ultimate secret weapon!

Power Golf – TG16 – 600 Wii Points
Power Golf sports a perfect combination of simple-yet-realistic controls and beautiful graphics. Swing away on 18 lush holes in one of three different game modes: the single-player STROKE PLAY mode and the multiplayer MATCH PLAY and COMPETITION modes.

Can you resist buying what is often considered to be the pinnacle of 8-bit gaming?
