Zelda II: The Adventure of Link
The direct sequel to the original The Legend of Zelda is famed for taking the series in a new direction, while also introducing elements that would become standard in future Zelda games. In Zelda II: The Adventure of Link, Link must seek the Triforce of Courage and awaken Princess Zelda from a sleeping spell. Meanwhile, Ganon’s minions are trying to resurrect their master. Zelda II uses a side-scrolling view and overworld map, and features role-playing aspects that are unique to the series.

Metal Slug X
900 Wii Points
Mega Slug X is an improved version of Metal Slug 2. While based on Metal Slug 2, it includes the new “Iron Lizard” weapon which chases enemies and the “Drop Shot” weapon whose shots bounce. With many new enemies, the game allows you to readjust the game’s difficulty by changing the positioning of bosses and other things. It also includes several arranged production features such as changed backgrounds and some rearranged BGM.
Thankfully, the Shifting World demo will give us Europeans a chance to try the game before it hits our shelves, as its US release has received largely negative reviews. Other than the free demo, are you downloading anything new this week?
Remember, if you are a Nintendo 3DS Ambassador, you’ll be able to update your copy of Zelda II with Restore Points, hopefully making the game much easier to play through.
