Nintendo has added two NES games to its Virtual Console service as part of its weekly US eShop update.
Platformer Mighty Bomb Jack is now available on Wii U and shoot-em-up Life Force joins the 3DS' Virtual Console lineup. Nintendo will also discount 3DS JRPG Shin Megami Tensei IV and 3DS action platformer Fractured Soul on eShop over the next few weeks.
Here's the full official list:
Virtual Console on Wii U
Mighty Bomb Jack - The hero of the game, Jack, must make his way through 16 levels of a pyramid in order to defeat the demon Belzebut and rescue the royal Pamera family. Navigate through action zones and Royal Palace rooms, discovering treasure chests along the way that hold money bags and useful power-ups.
Virtual Console on Nintendo 3DS
Life Force - Blast your way through six stages of intense action, alternating between horizontal- and vertical-scrolling environments, and take on wave after wave of enemies. You can go at it alone, or invite a friend to assist in the challenge. Do you have what it takes to save your planet from the monstrous Zelos?
