  • Star Tropics on NESIn Star Tropics (priced 500 Wii Points = €5 / £3.75 / AU$7.50) you find out just how resourceful you can be, with its mixture of adventure and RPG elements. Step into the shoes of Mike Jones, a teenage star pitcher from Seattle who has come to the tropics to visit his famous archeologist uncle, Dr. Jones. After being told that his uncle has been abducted, Mike begins a perilous quest in order to rescue him and figure out the mysterious plot behind his disappearance. Luckily for Mike, he meets helpful villagers and finds more powerful weapons as he explores numerous locations and island-hops using his uncle’s submarine. You’ll never know what to expect next as the cosmic story unfolds over the course of eight action-packed chapters, ranging from Dr. Jones’s lab on C-Island to an alien spacecraft. Who knew a tropical vacation could turn into a mission to save the world?

    Alien Storm on GenesisIn Alien Storm (priced 800 Wii Points = €8 / £6 / AU$12) shape-shifting aliens have infiltrated the city, creating chaos and panic! Fortunately, a trio of heroes called the Alien Busters has agreed to wipe out the invading creatures. The members of the team wield their own special attacks, and they unload a world of hurt on the Martian menaces from the city streets to the mother ship. Gordon, a tough guy with a bazooka, has a special gunship attack, while Karla has a flamethrower for alien crisping, though she prefers to use her special ballistic-missile attack. Finally, Slammer the robot can self-destruct at will and attacks the intruders with an electric whip and other devices. Take the aliens by storm and save your city.

    Classic Controller for Wii Virtual Console gamesBack in September 2007 Nintendo of Europe and Australia’s Wii Shops broadened their horizons with a selection of great games previously only available in Japan. This event was called the Hanabi Festival and included awesome games like Super Mario Bros.: The Lost Levels (NES), Sin & Punishment: Successor of the Earth (N64), Mario’s Super Picross (SNES), Gradius III (SNES), and Ninja JaJaMaru-Kun (NES).

    Nintendo might be starting a second Hanabi Festival soon, because just added to the Office of Film & Literature Classification (OFLC ratings board in Australia) are some previously unannounced Wii Virtual Console classic games. Last year newly rated Australian Virtual Console games were released worldwide in between one to two months after being discovered, so once again expect the below listed games soon.

    New Japanese games on the horizon are: the SNES sequel to Milon’s Secret Castle titled Do Re Mi Fantasy: Milon’s Quest, a Famicon Disk System (Japanese NES add-on) game by Shigeru Miyamoto titled Smash Ping Pong, a Pitfall-like platform NES game titled Spelunker, and the already released in the U.S. Hudson’s Adventure Island on NES.
