US Nintendo downloads: Wonder Boy, Monster World IV

Two classic platform adventures this week

Nintendo's brushed the dust off the Wii Virtual Console this week with two sweet little platformers.


Wonder Boy in Monster Land (originally released in arcades and on Sega Master System in '87 and '88 respectively) joins Monster World IV - a previously Japan-only Mega Drive game that's finally been localized for the West - on Virtual Console for Wii.

Why these are relegated to Nintendo's 'also this week' gubbins list at the bottom is beyond us.

Here's the list:
