Nintendo has updated its eShop, WiiWare, and DSiWare channels for the week, adding the Game Boy classic Adventure Island.
Adventure Island is kind of interesting because is started off as a port of Sega’s Wonder Boy arcade game, before spawning its own, Hudson Soft-developed series. This one is actually the game known as Adventure Island II on the NES, but was the first to reach the Game Boy, It released in 1992. A 2009 Wii effort is the latest in the series, and with Hudson’s kind-of-demise, we’re unlikely to see much more.
Here’s the full lineup:
- 3DS eShop
– Adventure Island (Game Boy Virtual Console)
- DSiWare (also available on 3DS eShop)
– House M.D. – Episode 5: Under the Big Top
– Double Bloob
– XMas Puzzle
