30th March, 2007- This week's Wii Virtual Console line-up looks set to be a knockout! Nintendo is releasing three epic games from days gone by, starting with the comical boxing game Punch Out!!®. The player assumes the role of a rookie trying to make it in the boxing world by working his way through the ranks and embarking on numerous matches. Each fight results in repute and fame with the ultimate winner eventually earning the world champion title. Punch Out!!® is available this week for only 500 Wii points.
Also up for grabs is the SNES action adventure, The Legend of the Mystical Ninja. This action packed game sees two characters, Kid Ying and Dr. Yang, on a quest to rescue a kidnapped princess. Players must complete tasks and battle enemies in order to save our heroine and finish the quest. And if you need a helping hand, two-player mode allows players to piggyback each other to make the battling even more dynamic! The Legend of the Mystical Ninja is available for 800 Wii points.
Joining these two games on Virtual Console is the Turbografx classic, Dragon's Curse. Originally released in 1990, Dragon's Curse follows a warrior, who after an unfortunate run-in with a dragon becomes Lizard-Man. The object of the game is to retrieve the Salamander Cross, and become human once more. En route the player must defeat various dragon bosses in order to change his form and eventually return to a human state! Dragon's Curse is available on Wii's Virtual Console this Friday for only 600 Wii Points
These great games will join the list of 66 classic titles already available for the Virtual Console in Europe.
