This week's VC update brings us 4 new titles to the Virtual Console. First up is Donkey Kong Country, this Rareware title made a huge splash due to its use of raytraced sprites instead of the more common flat pixel art based ones. People ooh'd and ahhh'd at the graphics, although the effect was a parlour trick.
In the end this title turned out to be a decent, if not a bit too simplistic, platformer and is worth a play through if you haven't done so already. Also showing up today is a title from one of my favorite series of games, New Adventure Island! Also a side scrolling platformer this Adventure Island has you running, skateboarding and axe tossing your way to save your beloved princess. If that's not the plot of a good platformer, I don't know what is!
It's a strange thing to see a new game on all the major VC channels (save the N64 sadly), let's hope this keeps up!
