6th April 2007 - Pinball with a Sonic twist hits Wii's Virtual Console this week as Sonic Spinball becomes available to download. As Dr.Eggman (AKA Dr.Robotnik) takes over Mt. Mobius, turning it into a mechanical base, Sonic must thwart Dr.Eggman's plans by causing a volcanic eruption by removing the Chaos Emeralds used to pacify the firey mountain. Featuring four large tables, players must negotiate the elaborate Pinball Defence System, destroying the fortress from the inside out! Sonic Spinball launches this week for 800 Wii Points.
Fans this week will also get the chance to travel to the land of Oasis once again as action-adventure The Story of Thor returns on Wii's Virtual Console. Players take control of Prince Ali as he discovers a buried gold armlet, once belonging to an ancient wizard bestowing upon him the ability to summon four spirits. Prince Ali must call all the spirits to his aid and stop a similar silver armlet being used for evil. The Story of Thor is now available to download for 800 Wii points.
If two 90's classic Sega games are not enough, how about a third? Head into the future and restore peace to Earth as VECTORMAN hits Wii's Virtual Console. The year is 2049 and the human inhabitants of Earth have left the planet to colonise another, leaving behind mechanical Orbots to clean up their mess. But when the Orbot leader, Warhead, blows a few circuits, it causes a war amongst the robots left behind - enter our hero VECTORMAN. With the ability to Morph into various forms, players can change VECTORMAN into everything from a speeding train to a power drill, mechanical fish or even mighty dune buggy in their mission to defeat Warhead. VECTORMAN can be yours to own for 800 Wii Points.
These great games will join the list of 69 classic titles already available for the Virtual Console in Europe.
