A Link to the Past awakens on the Wii U eShop

As does the Toki Tori dev's puzzler Rush.

If playing the recent Zelda, A Link Between Worlds, put you in the mood to revisit a certain classic 1991 Nintendo adventure, you're in luck as A Link to the Past is coming to the Wii U's eShop on 12th December.

Priced at £5.49 / €7.99, you can now kick it oldschool in Hyrule back in the day when sprites were sprites and stocking up on potions actually meant something (seriously, why wasn't A Link Between Worlds' harder Hero Mode available from the start?).

Elsewhere on the European Wii U eShop, Toki Tori developer Two Tribes is releasing its puzzler Rush, a game ex-EG scribe Kristan Reed spoke highly of upon its PC release. Rush will be priced at £1.79 / €1.99 until 9th January, when it will go up to £3.59 / €3.99.

Level-5 has also issued a sale on all of its 3DS offerings, with Attack of the Friday Monsters! A Tokyo Tale, Bugs vs. Tanks!, Crimson Shroud, Liberation Maiden, and The Starship Damrey all discounted to £4.49 / €4.99 until 2nd January. Usually these games all go for £7.19 / €7.99.
