Wii virtual console releases for this week

Rounding up the Wii virtual console releases for the week of April 14.

This week's Virtual Console releases feature a classic shoot-'em-up and the Sega Genesis sequel to Super Turrican.

  • Fantasy Zone (1986, Sega Master System, 500 Wii points): In Fantasy Zone, you'll take control of the Opa-Opa, a spaceship designed to take out enemy bases. Yes, that's the same Opa-Opa you've heard referenced in countless Sega games.

  • Mega Turrican (1994, Sega Genesis, 500 Wii points): In Mega Turrican, you assume the role of Bren McGuire, a lone soldier who must face the evil Machine before it destroys the rest of the galaxy. This should hold you over until the new Bionic Commando game comes out.
