Wii virtual console releases for this week

Announcing the latest Wii virtual console releases for the week of 10/22.

Billiards in space, a Japanese import, and classic sequel make up this week's list of Wii Virtual Console releases.

  • Lunar Pool (1987, NES, 500 Wii points)--It's the future, and it's space--so obviously the first thing that comes to mind is billiards. Enjoy 30 tables and two game modes. Rad space uniforms not included.

  • Ninja JaJaMaru-kun (1985, NES, 600 Wii points)--Up until now, Ninja JaJaMaru-kun was only available as an import from Japan. In this action game you must rescue Princess Sakura while battling a villain named Namazu Dayuu.

  • Golden Axe III (1993, Genesis, 800 Wii points)--The third installment of the classic Golden Axe brings fans back to the kingdom they original battled in. Retrieve the Golden Axe from The Prince of Darkness and break the curse that has terrorized the kingdom.
