Wii virtual console releases for this week--best game ever edition

Rounding up the Wii virtual console releases for the week of 11/5.


The virtual console overlords have listened, and with the anticipation of Super Mario Galaxy, we are graced with Super Mario Bros. 3 now available for the virtual console.

  • Super Mario Bros. 3 (1990, NES, 500 Wii points)--Widely regarded as one of the best video games of its generation and quite possibly of all time, this third installment of the Mario series simply blew gamers away. Seventeen years later, the game's style and gameplay still hold up.

  • Alien Soldier (1995, Sega Genesis, 900 Wii points)--Once you were a member of the criminal organization known as Scarlet, but now you've turned against them and must stop the leader, Xi-Tiger, from killing a hostage.

  • Power Golf (1989, Turbografx 16, 600 Wii points)--Power Golf is an easy-to-play 18-hole golf game that allows you to experience three modes of play. Supports up to three players in each mode.
