Most of today’s announcements we’ve previously reported. You should already be aware of the Cyber Deals and the Sonic sale going on, not to mention the National StreetPass event. Still, there are a few releases to mention.
The big one this week is The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask for the Virtual Console on the Wii U. This N64 classic has Link stuck in the world of Termina trying to save the world from destruction. The twist? He only has three days to do it!
Another classic appears on the New Nintendo 3DS with Breath of Fire II. If you enjoy old-school turn-based Japanese RPGs, you might want to consider this one. I never got around to trying it out, but I did enjoy the original.
