US VC Releases - 24th September - Streets of Rage 3

The long-awaited final part of Final Fight's rival series, Streets of Rage, hits the American VC today. Yup, it's Streets of Rage 3! The game's had quite a lot of criticism over the years (Especially compared to Streets of Rage 2), but it's still a great game and any beat 'em up fan should check it out (Though SoR2 should still take priority).

Second today is a catchup game for Americans - Kirby's Avalanche for SNES, which was released in Europe some two months ago. It's basically Puyo Puyo given a lick of Kirby paint (Much like Dr. Robotnik's Mean Bean Machine and it's lick of Sonic paint), so if you're a Puyo Puyo fan it's a must-have. If you already have Mean Bean Machine don't expect anything new!

Finally today, it's the TurboGrafx port of the arcade game Legend of Hero Tonma. This fast-paced sidescroller features loads of action and can get pretty tough later - Not for the weak!

Another pretty good week for Americans, with quite a diverse selection.
