Although Nintendo's press site has been silent on this week's Virtual Console releases, three new classic games are now available, just like every Monday
, ready to fill our day with a little sunshine, lollipops, and a rainbow or two.
- Ordyne (TG-16, 600 Wii Points) - A horizontal scrolling shoot-em-up in the style of Parodius.
- Mighty Bomb Jack (NES, 500 Wii Points) - A puzzle/platformer game.
- Final Fight (SNES, 800 Wii Points) - Capcom's beat-em-up defined the genre in the 16-bit days. Walk around, punch people, play a muscle-bound mayor, then destroy a car and watch the owner weep. Does it get any better than that? Answer: no.
Nintendo's recently-unveiled Virtual Console mini-site features 30-second clips from VC games
, though as we write the latest releases aren't available for preview. That doesn't matter, because everyone will
be getting Final Fight
. It's required.
