Thanks to advance notice from two companies, we can now look forward
to the Virtual Console releases for once. If Hudson
's plans go through (as in, if a game isn't mysteriously bumped) we can expect both Samurai Shodown II
and -- this is totally awesome -- Ys Book I & II.
We've been waiting for Ys
since its first appearance on the ESRB ratings database last year
, and now we're going to have the opportunity to buy two great action RPGs for eight bucks! There hasn't been a better deal since they packed Ys I & II
with TurboDuo systems, and the Wii actually costs less than a Duo!
