Nintendo Download for July 4th, 2013

Stupid hang glider.  Pilotwings was already released on virtual console for the Wii back in 2009, but now comes the Wii U VC version (which will let you play from the gamepad), and you have to ask yourself if you want to go through that again. It’s a different story if the last time you played was on the SNES back at the start of the 90s. For you, it’s likely nothing but nostalgia-fueled fond memories. For the rest of us, the debate continues.  It just looks so cool in motion.

Anyway, Nintendo is all about tickling your nostalgia bone this week (assuming you have any nostalgia for Castlevania knock-offs like Vampire: Master of Darkness).
