    Nintendo updated their Virtual Console schedule and here is what is coming to Japan in May:


    Coming out on May 1st:

    Exerion (Famicom – 500 Points)

    Super Mario Brothers 2 (aka Super Mario Brothers: The Lost Levels) (Famicom – 500 Points)

    The Japanese list gives a glimpse of what we might see in North America next month. Two weeks back Sega announced Streets of Rage 2, Kid Chameleon, Shining in the Darkness and Toe Jam & Earl in Panic on Funkotron for North America. Since Japan is seeing three of the announced games next month, it’s likely that North American Wii owners will have a chance to play Streets of Rage II and Shining in the Darkness in May too. There is only one Nintendo 64 game on the list and this month it’s F-Zero X. Nintendo has typically released the sole Nintendo 64 game to all regions, which means there is a fair chance F-Zero X will be coming to North America and Europe in May.
