Nintendo Store Update – 13/04/2012

April 13, 2012

This week’s Nintendo Store Update is positively brimming with retro flavour. Coming down the aisle for the Wii’s Virtual Console service is none other than the Mega Drive version of Street Fighter II: The New Challengers – but will you find anything new there? Perhaps not, unless you are yet to play the game yourself. Meanwhile, those in 3DS land can now buy up the likes of 3D Classics Kid Icarus and The Legend of Zelda, though if you were lucky enough to be an early adopter of the system and to have made the most of the recent promotion for Kid Icarus Uprising, you’d already have them in your virtual mitts for free.
