A DS game reborn and a classic fighting game make up this week's releases.

Virtual Console

  • Fatal Fury 2 (1993, NeoGeo, 900 Wii points): Fatal Fury 2 introduced brand new characters to the classic fighting game along with stage-specific interactive backgrounds. The game also revamped the two-line battle mode, possibly the most notable feature of the entire series.

WiiWare

  • Magnetica Twist (Nintendo, 1,000 Wii points): This new Magnetica game is a "twist" on the DS original--which itself was a port from a 1998 arcade puzzle game. In this updated version for the Wii, you'll be able to play with up to four players, each utilizing a Mii character.
