Wii virtual console release for this week--'Super Turrican' stands alone

Rounding up the Wii virtual console releases for the week of 3/3.


To say that the Virtual Console is "falling off" is an understatement. It's now been more than a month straight of less than three releases per week.

Super Turrican (1993, Super Nintendo, 800 Wii points): From Factor 5 came Super Turrican, a 2D platformer that reminded us a whole lot of Mega Turrican. Also, you'll find the addition of a grappling arm in Super Turrican, an homage to the game Bionic Commando--a classic title that you'll be able to play on Xbox Live and the PlayStation Network when it's released as Bionic Commando Rearmed. You'll also be able to play the updated next-gen version of Bionic Commando later this year.
