Two of the hardest NES games jump onto the 3DS eShop

Here’s your chance to defeat two of the games that have haunted many players for years. You’ve probably played several of Mega Man’s progeny, but it’s nice to take a look back at history to see how things got started. You might be surprised at how little has changed.

As for Super Mario Bros. 2, it’s the game that originally halted its trip to the North American mainland because it was deemed too challenging. In its place we were given Doki Doki Panic, except with a graphical overhaul (our original NES Super Mario Bros. 2 is not actually Super Mario Bros. 2).

For you Wii U owners out there, a few downloadable games are on sale for a limited time: Chasing Aurora, Little Inferno, and Trine 2: Director’s Cut. Here’s the rest of this week’s updates:
