Avenging Spirit And Master Higgins Make Their Way To Virtual Console


Note: If you own a 3DS, today’s the last day that you can sign into the eShop so it can register you for the Ambassador program.



Avenging Spirit was rated for the 3DS by the ESRB back in May, and this week sees its release on the 3DS Virtual Console for $2.99. While taking a walk with your girlfriend, you’re gunned down by mobsters and she’s kidnapped and held for ransom. You come back as a ghost so you can rescue her and rest in peace after it’s over.



Also out this week is a game called Go! Go! Kokopolo on DSiWare (800 points or $8) where you’re an angry wildcat trying to find the people that disturbed your afternoon nap. You have to coax enemies into chasing you around the stage and ultimately leading them into the mouth of a carnivorous plant.



The other notable retro release this week is Super Adventure Island II (800 points) for the Wii Virtual Console. Master Higgins has a new love interest after the last one proved to be a bit of a disaster. Then, a hurricane destroys their raft and they end up separated, both suffering from amnesia. Tina gets taken in by the king of Waku-Waku island and is engaged to him, with Higgins making his way to the island. 


Finally, there’s a 2-player co-op shoot-em-up on WiiWare, titled Kyotokei. You can grab this for 500 points ($5).
