Nintendo have said that the initial 12 virtual console games would grow and it has again.

More Virtual Console games will become available weekly every Monday following launch and by year’s end, gamers will be able to pick from a library of 30 or more classic games

The first two additional games released on the VC were Bonk's Adventure and Bomberman '93 both originally released on the TurboGrafx-16.
Super Star Soldier has just become the third addition to the list of Virtual Console games. The TurboGrafx-16 game was released in the US yesterday just as Nintendo had promised. The game is a top down scrolling space shooter released back in 1991 but now you can play it on your Wii if pay the 600 points required.

This makes all new content released so far on the Virtual Console an old TurboGrafx-16 game. While it is nice to get these games which were never that popular and got lost in obscurity, we hope a more well-known game will be released next week, Mario Kart 64 for example. We will just have to wait and see what that game is.
