WiiWare and Virtual Console releases for this week

Rounding up the WiiWare and Virtual Console releases for the week of 5/26

Both WiiWare and the Virtual Console get a pair of additions this week.

Virtual Console

  • City Connection (1985, NES, 500 Wii points): City Connection is one of the first "chase" games to have you running from the law. Use your arsenal of various road-weapons to throw them off track in this unique action game based on the arcade classic.

  • Metal Slug (1996, NeoGeo, 900 Wii points): Metal Slug is the classic side-scrolling shooter where you take control of either Marco or Tarma and destroy everything in your way. Battle through a vast amount of levels as you try and take back the actual Metal Slug weapon.


  • Dr. Mario Online Rx (Nintendo, 1,000 Wii points): Dr. Mario is back and with a next-gen makeover! In Dr. Mario Online Rx, you'll be able to take Dr. Mario online or up to four players locally. There's also new game modes and co-op features that'll have you blasting capsules with friends.

  • Family Table Tennis (Aksys Games, 500 Wii points): Enjoy three modes of table tennis action including single player, versus, or mini-game. Family Table Tennis is fun for the whole family and can support up to two players simultaneously.
