Share this Post

Nintendo may be going through a rough patch these days, but that doesn't mean it can neglect its responsibilities. Not only is the company addressing its weaknesses, but it's also releasing quality content on the virtual console again.

Nintendo announced this morning that The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past is now available on the Wii U virtual console. If you have only played last year's A Link Between Worlds, you'll want to check out the game that inspired the best 3DS game of 2013.

As for the 3DS virtual console, players can now purchase the original Mario Bros. Note that this isn't Super Mario Bros., but the original competitive/cooperative Mario Bros. that challenges two players to take on the roles of Mario and Luigi to collect coins and defeat enemies.

If you're looking for more content this week, you might want to check out the Wii U Super Indie Sale. Starting today at noon and lasting until February 20, you can buy one of five indie games and get the others for 60 percent off. If you already own one, the promotion will be available from the start. The games taking part in this promotion are Spin the Bottle: Bumpie's Party, Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams, Mighty Switch Forces! Hyper Drive Edition, Toki Tori 2+ and BIT.TRIP Presents... Runner2: Future Legend of Rhythm Alien.

Speaking of promotions, the Wii Fit U free trial ends tomorrow. Make sure you download the game by tomorrow to try it out for a month. If you sync it with the $20 Fit Meter, you can keep the game forever. The game will revert to its regular price of $30 on February 1.
