Wii virtual console releases for this week

Outlining the Wii virtual console releases for the week of 9/17.

Glad to see another Nintendo 64 title has made it to the virtual console, although I'm anticipating some disappointment with the selection.

  • Yoshi's Story (1998, Nintendo 64, 1,000 Wii points)--After Baby Bowser casts a spell on Yoshi Island leaving it in the form of a storybook, six Yoshis must band together and dethrone the evil Baby Browser and restore happiness to Yoshi Island.

  • Super Thunder Blade (1988, Genesis, 800 Wii points)--A Sega Genesis launch title, Super Thunder Blade is a helicopter combat game where you must fire upon all kinds of submarines, tanks, and more through four levels of play.

  • World Class Baseball (1991, Turbografx 16, 600 Wii points)--World Class Baseball was the only baseball game on the system worth playing. The main campaign, Pennant Mode, allows you to progress through 12 teams all competing for the World Title.
