Wii-kly VC Update

Posted July 2nd, 2007 by Dasme

Well first off I'd like to wish all the Canadian visitors a belated Happy Canada Day! For you Americans, Happy Independence Day! Nintendo doesn't take breaks though, and they have 3 games ready for your downloading pleasure.

This week's update gives us 2 sequels and a TG16 shooter! By the box art in this post you guys can see that our first title is Super Mario Bros 2 for the NES. Join Mario, Luigi, Toad and the Princess in this adventure to save the Dream World. This was a decent platformer back in the day, and is still enjoyable today! Our second sequel is Ecco: The Tides of Time for the Genesis. This sequel to Ecco the Dolphin takes you on another adventure through the ocean.

Our TG16 title for the week is Dragon Spirit. In this unique shooter you actually play the role of a dragon in your quest to defeat the Evil Demon of Darkness, Zawell. This was a favorite of mine in the arcades, and the TG16 version was the best home conversion.

So there you have it, another week another batch of great games to play on your Wii's Virtual Console. So are you guys enjoying the service so far? What games are your favorites, and which would you like to see? Let us know in the comments!

    Happy Independence Day neighbours!

    Among my favorite games are the classic Zelda series.

    But one tittle I can't wait to see among the SNES titles is Super Metroid. I must have played that games at least 40+ times and it never gets boring. Any news about a Super Metroid release?

    Thanks and keep it up on updating us on new games available for the Wii Virtual Console!
