This week’s Virtual Console releases are two rather high-profile games. On the Wii, you have Mega Man 5 for the NES, which first introduced Beat to the series. This will set you back 500 Nintendo Points ($5).


Meanwhile, on the Nintendo 3DS Virtual Console is the Game Boy version of Donkey Kong, which is going for $3.99.
