The Wii U Virtual Console finally gets some new content in this week’s Nintendo Download! Capcom has decided to release the first three Final Fight games on the eShop. Final Fight, Final Fight 2, and Final Fight 3 for the SNES are all available for $7.99. In addition, Capcom is running a promotion where buying one of these three Final Fight games will allow you to purchase any of their other fighting games for 50% off. This includes games like Street Fighter II: Turbo: Hyper Fighting. Also, Little Inferno is currently discounted to 50%, or $7.49, from now until October 9th.
Meanwhile, the 3DS gets Picross e3 ($5.99) and a Witch & Hero demo for its eShop. In addition, SEGA has released a digital version of Rhythm Thief & the Emperor’s Treasure on the eShop for $19.99. Considering the game isn’t available online at GameStop and physical copies of the game are fairly pricey on Amazon, now would be a great time to check it out if you haven’t already. Our own Jeff Neuenschwander gave it a 4.5 out of 5 in his review, so you’d definitely be getting your money’s worth.
