If you’ve never played River City Ransom before, then what the hell are you doing with your life? One of the biggest cult classics of the NES and one of the flatout best beat-em-ups ever, River City Ransom is now available on the 3DS eShop for download for a standard $4.99.
It’s a shame that the 3DS Virtual Console games don’t support multiplayer, because this is definitely one game I’d like to sit down with someone and use that someone as a weapon to beat the shit out of virtual someones. If you don’t get what I’m talking about, just go ahead and play River City Ransom already!
In addition to that, today’s eShop update includes some other notable goodies such as the famous game about Japanese schoolgirls and their exploding clothes, Senran Kagura Burst, available for you deviants for $29.99.
Nintendo’s also slashing the prices on some “fan favortie” Zelda games for the week in celebration of A Link Between Worlds. You can grab The Legend of Zelda, Zelda II, and Link’s Awakening for 30% on the 3DS and The Legend of Zelda, and Zelda II, for the same deal on the Wii U. Sorry kids, looks like the Oracle games and A Link to the Past are left out of this one… though it would be great marketing to mark down A Link to the Past for this one, but hey, what do I know?
