The second game is the also-quite-legendary gorefest Splatterhouse. Lucky PAL Wii owners got the chance to sample this cult classic on Friday, but thankfully US gamers haven't had to wait long in order to do the same. Another fine addition to the VC library, this arcade conversion turned heads at the time thanks to some rather disturbing visuals.

Completing the trio is a game that has been on everyone's lips for weeks now - Excitebike. This NES gem is strangely not listed as a new release on the VC, but it certainly wasn't available for download last week - gremlins in the system, perhaps? Whatever the reason, it rounds off a fine week for US Wii owners.
