16th July 2012 – The retro Game Boy Color title Wario Land II hits the Nintendo eShop this week. Mario’s nemesis Wario will need all the help he can get in recovering his treasure which the ominous Black Sugar Gang have stolen from him. Take control of Wario as he attempts to track his spoils down and claim what is rightfully his in a comical platforming adventure. It is up to you to solve puzzles, play mini-games and look for hidden exits that will lead you to more treasure, different game endings, and even see Wario transformed into a variety of strange guises, such as Zombie Wario, when hit by an enemies attack.

Elsewhere why not test your mettle and reactions in Zuma’s Revenge!™. You must take control of the fearless frog and fire stone spheres at the stream of deadly balls in order to destroy them. Featuring 60 adventure levels, six evil tiki bosses, and all new Daily Dungeon challenges to conquer, will you succumb to the perilous pitfalls, or can you tame the jungle and guide your agile amphibian to victory?

There is also a double dose of side-scrolling action on offer this week with the classic NES title Double Dragon® II: The Revenge launching on Virtual Console on Wii and Flip the Core is available on DSiWare.

Also available this week from the Nintendo eShop is the second clip in the series of The Incredible Barbazan. Check out the magical The Incredible Barbazan: The Fire Juggler featuring Barbazan the world’s most untalented magician and his trusty penguin assistant Fritz, performing tricks that go wrong in hilarious ways, all in stereoscopic 3D.
