    Here's an odd update- we've got not one, but two previously Japan-only games! But as you might expect from Nintendo, there's a catch...

    Super Mario Bros. 2 (Japan)-
    http://www.vc-reviews.com/review/476/super-mario-bros-2-japan.php

    Also known as Super Mario Bros.: The Lost Levels, this is the proper sequel to Super Mario Bros. It's more of the same, but harder.
    Note: This is the original NES version, without the better graphics from Super Mario All Stars.
    Note 2: It costs 600 points instead of 500.
    Note 3: This game will be removed at the end of September!

    Mario's Super Picross-
    http://www.vc-reviews.com/review/569/marios-super-picross.php

    Also previously unreleased in the West, it's nonogram (a popular type of puzzle somewhat similar to sudoku) with Mario thrown in. One for puzzle fans.
    Note: It costs 900 points instead of 800.
    Note 2: It's in Japanese.

    Neutopia II-
    http://www.vc-reviews.com/review/561/neutopia-ii.php

    Released surprisingly soon after it's predecessor (three weeks ago). It's a blatant Zelda rip-off, but what the heck? It's no less fun.

    Nintendo officially gets the award for dumbest idea of the year making SMB 2 (Japan) limited time only.

    I understand why Super Mario 2 is more expensive, since it's a limited time offer, but why the heck would an untranslated picross game be 900 points?

    SMB2 is an awesome game for Super Mario fanatics. For me, a 20 year nintendo veteran, I prefer this one to the All Stars version. A couple years back I modded my XBOX1 and was able to load a Famicom emulator complete with SMB2 Japan. Great game. Lots of fun. Highly recommended.

    Disappointed.

    I got Bloody Wolf instead.

    I don't know, something about riding a motorcycle and having the ability to jump while driving just appeals to me.

    Update: More previously unreleased-in-Europe games have been announced for the rest of the month, apparently in celebration of the Japanese Hanabi festival:

    21st September:
    Ninja Gaiden (NES) [I thought this did come out here?]
    Ninja Jajamaru-kun (NES)

    28th September:
    Sin and Punishment (N64)
    Gradius III (SNES)

    Looking forward to Sin and Punishment myself, after the fun I had with Gunstar Heroes.

    I own Mario All Stars, how much of a difference is there between The Lost Levels and the one that was just put on the VC?
