Japanese Virtual Console List: June 2012
Posted by Marcel van Duyn
The Neo Geo assault carries on
Three more games for the Wii Virtual Console in Japan this month, and as is to be expected now the majority are Neo Geo games. With Metal Slug 3's recent western release, we hope to see some more games for the system coming to the Virtual Console outside of Japan as well.
The full list for June is as follows:
- Tsukikomori — A visual novel with a horror theme, which of course was never released elsewhere originally; for some reason the visual novel genre never really took off outside Japan.
- Pulstar (June 5th) — A cult classic shoot 'em up with great 3D-like graphics and a pretty good soundtrack as well. Among fans this is probably one of the most requested remaining Neo Geo games, so we hope it finds its way elsewhere soon.
- Real Bout Garou Densetsu 2: The Newcomers — Creeping ever closer to the end of the series (and the much desired Garou: Mark of the Wolves), this is the seventh Fatal Fury title. Not many huge changes to be found in this one.
There's nothing super special coming up for Japan on the 3DS Virtual Console front next week, just a public release of Zelda II: The Adventure of Link, which will most certainly find its way around the globe sooner or later.
