Wii virtual console releases for this week

Rounding up the Virtual Console releases for the week of 11/12.


After a huge Virtual Console release last week, Nintendo has released three games you may not remember. Besides, you'll be playing Super Mario Galaxy all this week anyway.

  • Volleyball (1987, NES, 500 Wii points)--It doesn't get much simpler than this--Volleyball was one of the first volleyball games ever made. Easy-to-use controls make this game enjoyable for anyone who picks it up.

  • Axelay (1992, Super Nintendo, 800 Wii points)--When aliens invade the planet Corliss and start using up all of its resources you must take control of the only known available Axelay spaceship and blast your way to victory.

  • Blue's Journey (1991, NeoGeo, 900 Wii points)--Blue's Journey is a side-scrolling action game that puts you in control of Blue, a warrior equipped with various weapons. But your most powerful asset, the ability to change your size, is what will get you through this adventure.
