European Virtual Console: Merry Christmas From Nintendo Edition

Its Boxing Day, last year Nintendo gave us Donkey Kong Country 2 for the Virtual Console and that was it. This year they've been a lot more generous.

Game 1 - Sonic the Hedgehog 2
Master System - 500 Points

YES! YES! YES! Sonic 2 on the Master System is (like Sonic 1 on the system) is a completely different game from its Mega Drive companion. 6 zones to run through with 6 emeralds to find and in addition to that, a troll boss that is guaranteed to put the shits up any 5 year old. For 500 points its certainly worth using some of that Christmas money to grab some Wii Points.

Game 2 - Secret of Mana
SNES - 800 Points

FINALLY! The legenary co-op RPG drops onto the European service. What's remarkable is not the fact that its showed up but rather that its showed up for the usual SNES price. The game is damn near impossible to find on the SNES itself now so if you want to grab it, I would highly recommend you drop the points and get some friends round. No multi-tap needed for 3-players anymore remember.

njsykora is pronounced like this.

Yeah it would be easier if it were spelt njsikora but it doesn't look as cool does it?
