European Nintendo downloads: Shinobi takes revenge on bonsai

Today, we're jealous of European gamers, for one reason: The Revenge of Shinobi. The totally awesome Shinobi sequel isn't on the Virtual Console in North America, and it isn't on the Sega Genesis Collection or Sonic's Ultimate Genesis Collection. presumably due to the appearance of copyrighted characters (some of which were included without permission the first time!). We could totally be playing it now if we were in Europe (or Australia). Hopefully this release means that Sega is clear to release it in North America as well.

We'd be jealous of Bonsai Barber, which is surprisingly great, but we already have it! And we don't currently need maps of European cities, so the City Transport Map DSiWare games can wait as well.
  • Bonsai Barber (WiiWare, 1-4 players, 1,000 Wii Points)
  • The Revenge of Shinobi (Mega Drive, 1 player, 800 Wii Points)
  • City Transport Map Vol. 1 & 2 (DSiWare, 500 points each)
