Another week, another round of Nintendo Wii Virtual Console games, and this week’s batch follows a familiar pattern of one NES game, one Sega Genesis game and one TurboGrafix 16 game.
The three games coming to the Nintendo Wii today are Eternal Champions, ZANAC and The Dynastic Hero. Full game descriptions of each title are below, along with their respective costs in Wii Points.
Eternal Champions (originally on Sega Genesis, 800 Wii Points): This 2D fighting game introduces a cast of different characters that met untimely deaths in their lives on Earth. Now they have been given a chance to compete against each other, with the winner taking on the Eternal Champion, the ultimate fighter in the universe. The reward for defeating the Eternal Champion is a return to Earth for the opportunity to avenge death and restore balance to the universe. Players can choose from nine unique characters with a variety of fighting styles.
ZANAC (originally on NES, 500 Wii Points): ZANAC is a vertically scrolling shoot-’em-up originally released in November 1986. In the game, players take control of the state-of-the-art fighter (the ZANAC) to destroy the bases of the mechanized enemy forces. Use your full array of regular weapons as well as eight special weapons to clear the 12 intense areas of the game. Be careful, though, as the game changes the degree of difficulty in real time based on how well you play.
The Dynastic Hero (originally on TurboGrafx16 CD-ROM, 800 Wii Points): The Dynastic Hero is an action RPG featuring a cast of insect characters. The story begins with the invasion of their peaceful homeland of Tarron by the evil Drilkor Empire. Rushing to the insects’ aid is Dyna, the prince of Beetras. Take control of Dyna as he battles through action-filled stages. Equip weapons and items to vanquish the relentless foes, and acquire special items that enable you to brave the journey across the perilous desert or open sea. But it’s not just action, as the game includes multiple-choice quizzes and the ability to play the ocarina to find the right melody to open doors.
