US Nintendo eShop update: Pokémon, Rayman, Zelda

All this week's new digital content

This week's list of new download content for the Wii U and 3DS eShops in US brings a number of big names to the table.

The original NES Legend of Zelda is now available on the Wii U Virtual Console, along with Wario Land 3 for the 3DS.

And Rayman Legends is out September 3, which we called the "best experienced on Wii U" in our Rayman Legends review.


Here's the full update list:
