Nintendo has decided to run another Hanabi festival, which means various games that never made their way west or to Europe will be added to Virtual Console.

Top of the pops today is Super Mario RPG from the heady days of the SNES, bumped up to 900 Wii Points (approx GBP 6.30 / EUR 9) because, presumably, rare games are more expensive. Still, we get a two month head-start on the US, for once.

The other game, Super Mario Bros: The Lost Levels, was added for a limited time to Virtual Console back in a previous Hanabi Festival splurge. However, Lost Levels is back for good this time and costs 600 Wii Points (approx GBP 4.20 / EUR 6).

Future titles to look out for in the Hanabi Festival are Bio Miracle Bokutte Upa (NES), DoReMi Fanatasy: Milon's DokiDoki Adventure (SNES), Spelunker (NES) and Dig Dug (NES).

No word on how this will affect the alternating WiiWare / Virtual Console updates.
