There's a new Nintendo Direct this afternoon at 5 p.m. that has the Nintendo faithful all excited. Is Nintendo going to announce a new game? Are we going to hear anything about X or Shin Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem? Whatever happened to Yarn Yoshi? All these questions and more will probably not see an answer, but at least you can finally play some Super C on your Wii to take your mind off things.
That's right, folks - Super C, sequel to NES classic Contra, is now on the Wii U virtual console. In it, players take on the role of either Mad Dog or Scorpion as they run and gun their way through multiple levels of alien hell.
Unfortunately, Super C is the only major eShop release today. Sure, there are some new levels being added to Spin the Bottle: Bumpy's Party on Wii U for Valentine's Day, but that's about it. With this disappointing update, Nintendo had better have something worthwhile during this evening's Nintendo Direct.
While's there not much in the way of new content, you can grab three games from Rising Star Games at a reduced price until March 13. Those three games - Beyblade Evolution, Jewel Master: Cradle of Rome 2 and Girl's Fashion Shoot - are great picks for children who own a 3DS or 2DS.
Here are the other eShop releases this week:
