US VC Release - March 3rd - Super Turrican
Posted by Marcel van Duyn
A lot of people were expecting Super Smash Bros. to hit the US VC, in preparation for the US release of Super Smash Bros. Brawl next week, but let's be honest here - That was a bit of an unrealistic expectation. Japan didn't get the game when they got Brawl, and the US already got a N64 game last week.
What you did get, though, isn't such a shabby deal - Super Turrican for the SNES is the first Western-developed game besides the Donkey Kong Country series to hit VC and as such quite notable. It's part of the popular classic Turrican series, which is relatively famous among retro gamers for offering fast-paced, Contra-esque gameplay mixed with platforming. Thankfully, it's not nearly as hard as the Contra series. The series is also known for having fantastic soundtracks, all composed by Chris Hülsbeck.
Just one game for the US this week, but considering what game it is, it can't really be counted as a bad week. Check out the review:
