Drill Dozer, Mega Man 7, And Super Paper Mario Make Their North American Virtual Console Debuts




This week, three fan-favorite games have made their debut on the North American Virtual Console. People can head to the Nintendo 3DS or Nintendo Wii U eShop to grab Drill Dozer, Mega Man 7, or Super Paper Mario today.


Drill Dozer is a Game Boy Advance game that was originally released on February 6, 2006. In this Game Freak game, players help Jill, daughter of The Red Dozers bandit gang, take back the Red Diamond the opposing Skullkers gang took from her family. Along the way, she gets four other diamonds. Players go through the game controlling Jill in her Drill Dozer. It’s $7.99 for the Nintendo Wii U.


Mega Man 7 was released on the Super Nintendo on September 1, 1995. Six months after Mega Man 6, when Dr. Wily was captured, four Robot Masters are activated due to not hearing from Dr. Wily for the extended period of time. Mega Man heads out to defeat them, meeting Bass along the way. Mega Man eventually ends up encountering even more Robot Masters he’ll need to fight. It’s $7.99 and only playable on the New Nintendo 3DS.


Super Paper Mario is a Nintendo Wii game from 2007. It is the first Paper Mario game to eschew the traditional RPG format established in Paper Mario and Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door, instead adding more action and platforming elements to the mix. It’s a 2D game where Mario can “flip” into a 3D world to find secrets, as well as use the abilities of Pixl fairies to get new abilities like grabbing and throwing enemies, using Boomer as a bomb, or Thudley to Ground Pound. It’s $19.99 for the Nintendo Wii.
