Three classic games have come to the Nintendo Wii U and Nintendo Switch today in North America. The Virtual Console now includes Bonk III: Bonk’s Big Adventure, while the Nintendo Switch eShop has added ACA NeoGeo Magical Drop II.
Bonk III: Bonk’s Big Adventure first appeared on the TurboGrafx-16 in Japan and North America in 1993, before heading to the TurboDuo a year later. King Drool is at it again in Dinosaur Kingdom, and it is up to Bonk to save the day by going through seven stages and perhaps eight bonus stages. Except this time, he isn’t just slamming his head against things. He can eat candies that increase or decrease his size. Also, you can have a friend join in, as it offers cooperative multiplayer. It is $5.99 on the Nintendo Wii U eShop.
Devil’s Crush is a pinball game that appeared on the TurboGrafx-16 in Japan and North America in 1990. Though, you may also know it as Dragon’s Fury, as that was the name it took when it appeared on the Genesis. This was the second Crush Pinball game and had people going through a table that was three screens in size and had six bonus stages you could reach by meeting objectives as you played. It is $5.99 on the Nintendo Wii U eShop.
ACA NeoGeo Magical Drop II is a puzzle game that appeared in arcades and on the Neo Geo in 1996. In this game, you pick a character and match bubbles to earn points and best opponents. The big change here is that Drops and Special Drops can be matched with each other for the first time. You also get colorless Rainbow Balloons that become Special Drops when you match them with two matching normal Drops. There’s a puzzle survival mode for single players, a single player mode where you fight the computer, and a versus mode. It is $7.99 on the Nintendo Switch eShop.
