Wii virtual console releases for this week

Outlining the Wii Virtual Console releases for the week of 10/15.


A variety of genres round up this week's releases as we get a visit from Ryu, a grim future, and a classic shooter.

  • Ninja Gaiden II: The Dark Sword of Chaos (1990, NES, 500 Wii points)--With this sequel came a brand new enemy, Ashtar. You'll once again take on the role of Ryu as you attempt to rescue a kidnapped CIA agent.

  • Metal Marines (1993, Super Nintendo, 800 Wii points)--Metal Marines is a real-time strategy game that takes place soon after an antimatter war has disintegrated most of the planet. We've all been there.
