Kid Icarus and StarTropics are your March NES online titles
It’s the second week of the month and time to get your hands on some new NES Online games. Again this month it’s just the two games for us, Kid Icarus and StarTropics.
Japan, got one game the same as we got (Kid Icarus), but also got Yie Ar Kung-Fu and Fire Emblem. Considering the only English language version of that Fire Emblem exists on the Nintendo DS, we’re not shocked to see us skip it.
Kid Icarus – The evil goddess Medusa has stolen the Three Sacred Treasures and imprisoned the goddess of light, Palutena, in her evil plot to control all. Play as Pit, a young angel who has been entrusted with a magical bow and arrow. Fight against hordes of enemies that swoop from above and below. Secure the Three Sacred Treasures from their evil guardians, equip them and face Medusa in the final battle.
StarTropics – Step into the shoes of Mike Jones, a teenage star pitcher from Seattle, who has come to the tropics to visit his famous archaeologist uncle, Dr. Jones. After being told that his uncle has been abducted, Mike begins a perilous quest in order to rescue him and figure out the mysterious plot behind his disappearance. Luckily for Mike, he meets helpful villagers and finds more powerful weapons as he explores numerous locations and island hops using his uncle’s submarine.
Both games are available to download now, you’ll need to update your NES Online app to get it.
