There’s another NES title headed to the Nintendo 3DS Virtual Console in Japan—Donkey Kong Jr. was announced this week for an April 18th release. Early Nintendo 3DS owners received this game via the Ambassador Program last year.


Donkey Kong Jr. was originally an arcade game. It’s a platformer where you play as Donkey Kong Jr., out to rescue his dad, Donkey Kong, from Mario, who’s guarding his cage.


Donkey Kong Jr. will cost 500 yen in Japan.
