Nintendo today broke its Monday tradition by releasing just one game on its Wii Virtual Console. Normally, the Wii Shop Channel sees two updates each Monday. So, hopefully today’s release will quench your thirst for new Wii games.
The game uploaded today, is Super Turrican, an SNES game. It will set you back 800 Wii Points. In Super Turrican,
players assume the role of Bren McGuire, who’s on a United Planets Freedom Forces mission to save the peaceful planet Katakis from the evil Machine. The only weapon on players’ side is the Turrican Assault Suit. Equipped with multiple weapons, including the incredible Freeze-Beam that temporarily immobilizes almost any enemy, the Turrican Assault Suit gives one man the power of an entire army. Players must use the various weapons and powers at their disposal to fight through 12 increasingly difficult levels, free the innocent residents of the planet Katakis and crush the oppressive Machine.
Standard stuff, really. All in a day’s work.
