Nintendo VC Releases for 2014.06.04

Something is up as it has now been four weeks since the 3DS got anything on the VC. I would argue that the Wii U’s line up this week is a bit of a dud as well.

Wii U VC

fire_emblem_shadow_dragonLegend of Kage

Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon and the Blade of Light has been remade twice. Once on the Super Famicom and once on the DS. So that makes this version a bit hard to swallow unless one is a completionist.

The Legend of Kage is one of those arcade classics that if you enjoy I am sure you already have several copies by now. Having it available on the Wii U is an obvious move, but does not get me too excited.

That said, _Kage_ is Japanese for shadow so hey! Two shadow games this weekend. At least someone is still having fun, right?[ref]Although the Japanese title of Fire Emblem does not have shadow in its name, so, no, not really.[/ref]
