After experiencing a dry month for the eShop, it appears a brighter future is on the horizon. Nintendo have now announced two original Game Boy games that will be headed to the 3DS Virtual Console in Q4 of 2011, and they are none other than Metroid II: Return of Samus and Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins.
Since the launch of the eShop, I have now had 2 out of the four titles I craved either announced or released on the Virtual Console (those being Kirby’s DreamLand and now Metroid II), and now I am just patiently waiting for the arrival of Shantae and Warioland to be fulfilled. Even though it wasn’t on my list, Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins still was a fantastic title for the Game Boy, and it looks like the eShop is finally starting to pick up a bit. Once Nintendo release an official date for both, we will sure to bring you an update so stay tuned!
