US VC Releases - 14th April - Mega Turrican

If you like blasting things then you are in for a treat this week as this Monday’s Virtual Console selection will give you hours of blasting pleasure.

First up is Mega Turrican on the Sega Genesis. You might remember this as Turrican 3 on the Commodore Amiga. It's kind of a mix between Metroid, Contra and Gunstar Heroes but that doesn’t really do the game justice. We think it is well worth a look for run n’ gun fans, even though Super Turrican on the SNES is already on the VC and in our opinion has the edge on this.

A second Master System game appears this week to join Wonder Boy. Fantasy Zone is well worth a look. It is sort of like a cute version of Defender. It is one of the more memorable games from the early Master System library, your 500 Wii Points would be well spent here.

Get blasting!

Note: These games will not be available in the North American Wii Shop Channel until 9 a.m. Pacific time on Mon 14th April.
