Virtual Console Monday – King’s Knight & Powerball


The Wii Shop Channel rolls out another pair of games this week:

King’s Knight – NES – 1989 – 500 Wii Points
In the kingdom of Izander, the fair Princess Claire has been kidnapped by a foul and insidious dragon, and it is the mission of four brave fighters to save her.  [Of note: this game was Square Soft’s first independent release!]

Powerball – Genesis – 1991 – 800 Wii Points
Eight different teams representing various nations are vying to become the Powerball champions, and you control one of the eight in your quest for the championship.

Split between two games that are fairly lackluster, King’s Knight looks a little too rough despite being created by a company who went on to be famous for their polish and presentation.  That means Powerball is our Virtual Console pick of the week.
