Nintendo VC Releases for 2014.09.10

This is what a release week for VC games should be. A nice variety with something for almost everyone.

Wii U VC

Mario Golf: Advance Tour (GBA): ¥702 (¥400 cart-only, ¥440 complete on Suruga-ya) Breath of Fire (Super Famicom): ¥823 (¥258 cart-only on Suruga-ya) Flying Dragon: The Secret Scroll (Famicom): ¥514 (¥530 cart-only on Suruga-ya)

Role-paying golf! That is all that needs to be said.

And because order matters, Breath of Fire is coming out fourteen months after it sequel hit the Wii U VC. Which is akin to giving someone some cold soup and then much later giving them a real meal, so there is still some charity shown.

From what I can tell, Flying Dragon: The Secret Scroll is the “first” Hiryu no Ken game but not really because of Shanghai Kid, an arcade game known as Hokuha Syourin Hiryu no Ken. Shanghai Kid was only in the arcade, though, so who cares about it. The series has an interesting history, with sixteen games (seventeen if you count the NA-only game that is a mix of two other titles) released until the series stopped in 2000.
