This Thursday’s Nintendo eShop offerings will include the Virtual Console download of the NES’ Punch Out!! Featuring Mr. Dream, the company announced today. It may not be Mike Tyson’s anymore, but, hey, at its core the game is still the same. Also announced by The Big N today were drop dates for the Game Gear’s Virtual Console debut.
Sonic the Hedgehog: Triple Trouble, Shinobi and Dragon Crystal debut on Nintendo’s virtual store next week on March 17. It looks like branding and selling its products as nostalgia machines is still one of the tenets of the company’s strategy, which may have led to its successes in hocking more 3DS systems than its predecessor was able to manage in its first year on the market.
