Wii virtual console releases for this week

Rounding up the Wii virtual console releases for the week of 1/14


Only two new games were released today for the Virtual Console. A puzzler from a familiar face and a side-scrolling beat-em-up game.

  • Pac-Attack (1993, Super Nintendo, 800 Wii points)--See Pac-Man like you've never seen him before in Pac-Attack. One of the first games to remove Pac-Man from his white-dot labyrinth dwelling, Pac-Attack had gamers using the hero in a puzzle game in which you must gobble up ghosts to progress.

  • Riot Zone (1992, TurboGrafx 16, 800 Wii points)--What seems like it was torn out of a page from the Double Dragon series, Riot Zone has you beating up goons from an evil crime organization. Choose to play as either Tony or Hawk (I'm not joking) in this side-scrolling fighting game.
