This week’s Virtual Console update is a sight you don’t behold very often — a Nintendo 64 release, in the form of Mario Party 2 for 1,000 Wii points (that’s $10).


And having a party of his own is Frobot, who you may remember from the jazzy trailer. Frobot is for 1,000 Wii points, too, but there’s a free demo up that you can download and try first.


And finally, DSiWare sees the release of Dragon’s Lair II: Time Warp, another animated arcade classic by Don Bluth. This one costs 800 DSi points ($8).
