Nintendo has added Mario Golf and Wonder Boy in Monster Land to the Virtual Console.

The former was originally for the N64, which was the one before the GameCube, which was the one before the Wii. They used plastic boxes not plastic discs back then, but golf was still golf. And that's what Mario does here with his wacky friends on wacky courses.

Mario Golf costs 1000 Wii Points (approx GBP 7.00 / EUR 10.00).

Wonder Boy in Monster Land comes from the SEGA Master System, the rekindled games of which cost 500 Wii Points (approx GBP 3.50 / EUR 5).

Monster Land is more of an RPG adventure than straight platformer, and fiendishly difficult because of no continue or password system. In summary: boy in pants saves the day.
