Whoever put Mega Man X2 down in the 'Also new this week' subcategory of Nintendo America's downloads update list needs to be put in a headlock.
It was originally released on the Super Nintendo in 1994 in Japan, and 1995 in US and UK, delivering more classic Mega Man action with, to this day, some awesome-looking 2D sprite work. You can get it now on the Wii Virtual Console.
Donkey Kong Jr. is also up today for 3DS, which is one for die-hard retro Nintendo fans. Here's the full list:
Donkey Kong Jr. - In this timeless classic, clamber up vines and chains and gather vital fruit and keys to free your father, Donkey Kong, who's been imprisoned by Mario. (For Nintendo 3DS)
Mad Dog McCree- When the ruthless outlaw Mad Dog McCree goes on a rampage with a nasty pack of wanted fugitives, they leave death in their wake. The only gunslinger who can stop them is you. (For Nintendo 3DS)
The Amazing Spider-Man (demo version) - The fan-favorite, web-slinging action is back in New York City. Perform acrobatic attacks and stealth maneuvers as you face off against larger-than-life enemies and race to save Manhattan.
