It seems that Nintendo has started to translate and release Japan only games in the US. The games are Sin and Punishment for N64 and Super Mario Bros: The Lost Levels for NES. An interesting note is that both games seem to have a 20% translation tax. NES games are normally $5 and this is $6 and N64 games are normally $10 and this is $12. Just what else does Nintendo have planed for it's Virtual Console?
