Sin & Punishment Coming to PAL Virtual Console

Nintendo have decided to announce something they don’t usually ever announce, and that is that some really good Japanese only games are on the way to the PAL version of Virtual Console. The name of this great event is the Hanabi Festival, and what’s even better is that the event starts today.

The first games to be released (which are already available to download) are the original Japanese Super Mario Bros 2 (not the one based of Yume Kōjō: Doki Doki Panic) and Mario’s Super Picross. If that does not interest you then next week (21st September) will see the NES’s Ninja Gaiden and Ninja JaJaMaru-Kun appearing on the service. Oh, and if you are still not in any way excited then the third and final week of the event (28th September), will see the release of small little title called Sin & Punishment along with Gradius III.

With Hanabi meaning Fireworks in Japanese then this event is aptly named… Sin & Punishment! Europe! OMG!!!
