With an impressive degree of promptness, Nintendo made good on its promise of regular Virtual Console updates for its Wii console, every Friday in Europe. Arriving practically bang on the stroke of midnight this morning, the first batch of releases unleashed since the Wii's launch last Friday offer some formidable old-skool classics, including the superb Gunstar Heroes, Ristar and Alien Crash.
Today's eight-strong line-up is as follows: Urban Champion (a Euro-exclusive right now, even if it's not particularly good), Solomon's Key and Pinball for the NES, Columns, Gunstar Heroes, Ristar and Dr. Robotonik's Mean Bean Machine from the Mega Drive's illustrious past and, rounding things off, Alien Crush on Turbografx. If you're in need of some purchasing guidance, follow the links for some considered opinion, courtesy of our US brethren.
In the spirit of completeness then, cast your eyes below for that full roster and any extraneous details that seemed like a good idea at the time. Like say, how many Wii beans you'll need to plant for those magical time trees to reach fruition.
