Wii virtual console releases for this week

Rounding up the virtual console releases for the week of 12/17.

Three new games with questionable box art grace your Wii this week.

  • Cybernator (1993, Super Nintendo, 800 Wii points)--Finally, a sci-fi game that addresses the dwindling fossil fuels issue! Cybernator takes place in the distant future where you must clear seven challenging stages. However, you may not solve the world's energy problems.

  • Alien Storm (1991, Sega Genesis, 800 Wii points)--What is a Wii virtual console release without a side-scrolling action game? Alien Storm has you take on eight stages and more bosses than what the arcade original offered.

  • Monster Lair (1989, Turbografx16, 800 Wii points)--Monster Lair is a side-scrolling shooter that takes you through 14 rounds of nonstop comical action and is the third game in the Wonder Boy series.
