It’s almost here. The Bayonetta games are coming to the Wii U tomorrow. But before that happens, Europeans can monkey around in this Nintendo Download with Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy’s Kong Quest — as well as its companion game from the Game Boy. The 3DS Virtual Console will also be getting Legend of the River King 2.

Remember: the Donkey Kong Country special discount is still in effect. If you download one of the Virtual Console titles for a specific system (such as the DKC games on Wii U), you can get that system’s DKC game for 33% off (DKC: Tropical Freeze for Wii U).

The full list of releases and sales are below. Descriptions come directly from the press release. All events happen on October 23rd unless noted otherwise.

E3 2014 Nintendo - Bayonetta | Nintendo Download

  • Bayonetta

“Originally released in 2010, the unforgettable first chapter of the Bayonetta saga introduced the world to “climax action”, an explosive blend of dynamic action and saucy style. Armed with a gun in each hand and one on each foot, Bayonetta destroys her opponents with combo attacks that are as beautiful as they are brutal. Dodge enemy attacks with perfect timing to activate Witch Time, leaving your slowed-down opponents defenceless against your barrage of kicks, blows and bullets, then finish them off with a devastating Torture Attack. No angel will stand in Bayonetta’s way.”
