Japan’s VC titles continue to rock

Call me green with envy for Japanese Wii owners, because I am. The apology from Nintendo to Japan for launching there after the U.S. has still not ended, apparently, judging from these Virtual Console titles set to drop soon:

NES Games (500 Wii Points)

* Ikki: A short, snappy ninja action game from Sunsoft.
* Ice Climber: The massively popular platform game.
* Kid Icarus: Another classic platformer from Nintendo.
* Zelda II: The Adventure of Link: Originally released for the Famicom Disk System.

SNES Games (900 Wii Points)

* Fire Emblem: Seisen no Keifu: Fourth installment in the acclaimed SRPG series.

N64 Games (1000 Wii Points)

* Mario Kart 64: The second best-selling N64 title.

Genesis Games (600 Wii Points)

* Bonanza Bros: Thievery action with a puzzle element.
* Gain Ground: Classic strategy/action combo from Sega.

TurboGrafx 16 Games (600 Wii Points)

* Alien Crush: Aliens take over this popular pinball game.
* Moto Roader: Overhead racer with power-ups.
* R-Type II: Part two of the first game. Stages 1-4 not included.
* Soldier Blade: Final installment in Hudson’s shooter series.

Mario Kart 64 is worth double that amount, in my opinion.
