Wii virtual console releases for this week

Rounding up the Wii virtual console releases for the week of 5/5.

This week's downloads feature a classic Pokémon puzzler and a beat-'em-up game from 1988.

  • Pokémon Puzzle League (2000, Nintendo 64, 1,000 Wii points): Departing from the usual Pokémon game formula, Pokémon Puzzle League combines fast action puzzle games along with battling. Players must match like-colored blocks in order to gain an advantage over their opponent.

  • Renegade (1988, NES, 500 Wii points): Renegade tells the classic video game story of one-man-versus-everyone. Fight against bikers and gang members as you attempt to restore peace to the city.
