Wii virtual console releases for this week

Rounding up the Wii virtual console releases for the week of 3/31.

Today we get some love from an arcade racing classic along with everyone's favorite caveman boy in distress.

  • Cruis'n USA (1996, Nintendo 64, 1,000 Wii points): While many would argue that Cruis'n USA doesn't do its arcade counterpart justice, there's still plenty of racing to enjoy without the need for a roll of quarters. Enjoy three difficulty levels as you enjoy scenic races across the country.

  • Wonder Boy (1987, Sega Master System, 500 Wii points): In Wonder Boy, you'll play as Tom-Tom, a caveman child forced to free his kidnapped girlfriend. Collect fruit and eggs along the way, and you just may survive battling the monster who has taken her.
