Nintendo eShop Digital Download Thursdays

Have you been voting for your favorite Fire Emblem characters? The winning ones will make an appearance in Fire Emblem Heroes, the new mobile game releasing on February 2.

Three new (old) NES games are coming to the Wii U Virtual Console today. All three are from Culture Brain, a publisher who put a lot of ads in video game magazines at the time, but never quite made it big like Konami or Capcom. Flying Warriors, Kung-Fu Heroes, and Little Ninja Brothers all feature multiplayer action.
