Donkey Kong 3 and Enduro Racer on VC

500 Wii Points apiece.

Nintendo has updated the Virtual Console with two games from 1986 this morning: Donkey Kong 3 and Enduro Racer, both of which sell for 500 Wii Points (or approximately GBP 3.50 in British roubles).

Donkey Kong 3 is a NES game and a bit of a departure from its platform-hopping predecessors, in which you defend flowers from bees while the ape hangs from vines at the top of the screen. It has more in common with shooters than anything, and it actually came out on the US service six months ago.

Meanwhile, Enduro Racer is a Master System title where you drive a dirt bike into the screen avoiding obstacles, occasionally jumping and performing wheelies to keep things going.

No doubt both games are towering examples of their craft so we'll be giving them our full attention soon in a bumper Virtual Console Roundup that also takes in some of the games we forgot to deal with before Christmas.

Sometimes we include links to online retail stores. If you click on one and make a purchase we may receive a small commission. For more information, go here.
