Earlier this week, it was revealed that Picross E would be released on the Nintendo eShop in the UK. One would expect that North America would be also getting the game this week. But then, that would make sense. We can’t have that in a North American Nintendo Download. But fear not! We did get one item of interest this week. Prince of Persia for the SNES will be available on the Wii’s Virtual Console for 800 points.

This is the third week in a row after the release of New Super Mario Bros. 2 that Nintendo of America failed to give us anything substantial. Meanwhile, Nintendo of Europe is consistently giving its audience things to play after the release of New Super Mario Bros. 2. It would’ve taken very little effort for NoA to release something like Dr. Mario, Kirby’s Star Stacker, Picross E, or other games I could list off the top of my head. But no, Nintendo of America is more interested in The Black Eyed Peas than throwing us a bone, recently.
