US VC Releases - 25th February - Kirby 64
Posted by Marcel van Duyn
American NES fans were no doubt a little jealous at Europe for getting River City Ransom last Friday - But no worries, while you aren't getting RCR on Monday, you'll get something else that's also wanted by many people and isn't out in Europe yet.
Japan got Custom Robo V2 as their latest Nintendo 64 game, so some people thought the rest of the world could potentially get that as a new import game (As it wasn't released outside Japan originally). Nintendo has chosen not to do so (For now, at least) and instead release Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards, Kirby's first 3D game and only game on the N64. But before you get your hopes up too much - While the game is enjoyable for a while and has a fantastic soundtrack (Just like, well, pretty much every other Kirby game), it is generally considered to be the worst of Kirby's main games.
Today's other game is a lot less noteworthy. It's TurboGrafx shoot 'em up Psychosis. It's a good game, but with so much of the TurboGrafx's great shooters (Soldier Blade, Blazing Lazers, Lords of Thunder, etc.) all already available, we can't really fathom why you would pick this title, unless you're an absolute die-hard shooter fan.
Kirby 64 was highly anticipated, but is it really worth it? Check out the reviews:
Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards - Nintendo 64 - 1000 Wii Points
Psychosis - TurboGrafx-16 - 600 Wii Points
PLEASE NOTE: These games will not be available to download from the North American Wii Shop Channel until 9 a.m. Pacific time on Monday 25th Feb
