Wii virtual console releases for this week

Rounding up the virtual console releases for the week of 2/11.


Looks like the days of the triple-update are long gone as this week is another two-game showdown on the Virtual Console.

  • Harvest Moon (1997, SNES, 800 Wii points): What's considered to be a relatively rare title is no longer scarce as Harvest Moon makes its way to the virtual console today. The game is basically a farm simulator in which you must raise livestock and grow crops in addition to turning a run-down farm into a thriving success.

  • Lords of Thunder (1993, Turbografx 16, 800 Wii points): Lords of Thunder is a side-scrolling shooter with a heavy-metal soundtrack. Blast through six stages of intense action as you try to revive "The Dark One."
