    Wario Land 3 and Mole Mania in a single day?? Excellent update, Nintendo! This has been a great month for the 3DS VC and I hope to see more Game Boy classics in the coming months.

    Indeed! I'm hoping for Castlevania: The Adventure, myself. I know that's like, one of the least-liked games in the series, but it's really nostalgic for me. I used to play it all the time as a kid. I actually own the cartridge, but it'd be an insta-download if it showed up on the VC.

    Also, any of the Mega Man Gameboy games. Even the (comparably speaking) terrible Mega Man 2.

    Has anyone picked up Planet Crashers yet? I have my eye on it but wanted to see if anyone had an opinion regarding it.

    @GameDadGrant

    Castlevania: The Adventure already came out in Europe, so I think we'll see it. And I don't have nostalgia for it, I just played it in the last year, but I thought it was quite fun and actually had some cool things I hadn't seen in Castlevania before.

    Wario Land is good fun. I love these old Game Boy games--the smaller teams behind them (often headed by Gunpei Yokoi) put a lot of heart into them. Looking forward to trying out Mole Mania later tonight!

    I'd also like to echo the want for Castlevania and the remaining Mega Man titles. As well as the excellent Wario Land 2!

    @TriforceBun

    Well Wario Land 2 is out in Europe, so it coming over here seems likely. I'd also like to see the old Mega Man Game Boy games (since I've not played any of them aside from the original) and the Castlevania games (never played the Game Boy games).

    I'll definitely be getting Wario Land. I loved WL4. Dot Runner looks like a first-person dungeon crawler... do not want. Unless it really is a crazy first-person Pac-Man game.

    Is Colors 3D more of a tool for artists or a "learn how to draw" game?

    I've heard Mole Mania mentioned a lot, I may have to check it out.

    It's a tool. It does nothing to teach you how to draw. If you want to learn how draw, check out Art Academy.

    I just picked up all 4 titles today. They all look great in their own way. I'll give you a hands-on in a couple days, since that is the one that A) cost me the most and B) has me the most curious, since it looks like a fighting game but they call it an action RPG. It will get my most play time for the next few days.

    Well, as it turns out, Mole Mania is great. It's like a more adventurous Lolo with charm to spare, totally worth the money! I'm having a ball with this week's VC offerings.
