The Wii U may not be getting many new games this year, but gamers itching to dig into more Nintendo titles can always turn an eye to the past with the system’s Virtual Console. Another two games have arrived on the service in North America today, both of which hail from major Nintendo franchises and started life on the Nintendo DS. Kirby Canvas Curse sees the titular pink puffball forced into a ball that you can roll through levels by drawing paths on the touchscreen, while Animal Crossing: Wild World provides the classic home decorating experience that fans love.

Nintendo posted descriptions for both of these games on their website, giving a brief overview of what to expect in each. First up is Kirby Canvas Curse‘s description:

Draw rainbow paths as you guide Kirby through a magical adventure! When Kirby gets turned into a ball by an evil witch, your hand-drawn rainbow paths become the only way he can find power-ups and reach the gates in each world. Stun enemies, destroy barriers, and detonate bombs—and do much more—by using the stylus. Unlock special features by collecting medals in each stage and completing in-game tasks!

And here’s what they had to say about Animal Crossing: Wild World:

Cross over to a brand-new world! Get ready to start a new life! Whether you want to decorate your home, catch bugs or fish, join in on special events, or just chat with the locals, there’s always plenty to do! Accessorize your life with over 600 new items. Design constellations, clothes, and flags. Take part in events as the seasons come and go!

Will you be grabbing either of these new additions to the Virtual Console? What games are you hoping to see added to the service in the future? Give us your thoughts in the comments!

Tyler Meehan
Tyler is verbose. He apologizes for that. Tyler "Alpha" Meehan's first experiences with gaming came from his cousins' NES and the Mario games that went with it. They were fun, but merely brief distractions while on the road (yes, they had an NES in their car. It was awesome, and he was jealous). Still, nothing compared to his Star Wars books. OR SO HE THOUGHT. His love of gaming truly began when he and a friend came together to beat the Nintendo 64's Mission: Impossible, a challenge so intense that Tyler bought his own console to facilitate its defeat. Upon being introduced to Ocarina of Time (an introduction that included, among other spoilers, the freakin' final boss fight. GEEZ, PHILIP), his lot in life as a Nintendo fanboy was sealed in stone. His ability to recall absolutely useless video game information served him well during the Pokémon craze, and helped him aid numerous friends in their own endeavors to defeat games like Majora's Mask and Kingdom Hearts. Those were good days. Good days... The Zelda series soon became his primary obsession fascination, but additionally he was soon introduced to text-based RPGs by one of his schoolmates. Discovering that he had a knack for the English language and a strong love of telling stories, he started putting effort into writing his own storylines. That all got put onto the backburner, though, when he discovered the Zelda online community, particularly The Desert Colossus's Hyrule Adventures 2, an online text RPG based in the Zelda world. He joined under the pseudonym of "Alpha" and soon became one of their lead writers, going so far as to join the moderator staff and, in a year's time, become the head administrator of the RPG. During this time, Twilight Princess was released, and he joined several other TDCers in posting their thoughts on the game - his "Twilight Impression Posts" lasted for several months and were well received by the community. Staying on even after the webmaster was forced to retire, he continued to provide occasional news posts and articles for the site, until it became clear that the site was dying. He turned his focus back to Hyrule Adventures 2 and his college studies, until the latter forced him to stop work on the former. Tyler graduated a few years ago from the Georgia Institute of Technology with a Bachelors in Computer Science, and now serves as a software engineer for a rather large company that he doesn't feel like telling you all about (he's a jerk like that sometimes). His love of gaming and writing still strong, he joined the Zelda Informer staff in early 2013 to write a walkthrough for The Wind Waker, but later began using his English skills to become ZI and Gamnesia's first dedicated Copy Editor. When not trying to get Brian to shut up in Gamnesia's group chat, he spends his time writing Zelda fanfiction, planning some original fantasy stories that he may or may not try to publish some day, and playing games on his Wii, PlayStation 3, and Nintendo 3DS. He intends to get a WiiU sooner or later, probably around when Pikmin 3 comes out, but has little interest in the other consoles currently. Also, he can't stand writing bios in first-person. Talking about yourself like that is just...weird.
