EU VC Releases - 13th June - The Last Ninja 2, Alex Kidd and more!

After last week's VC disaster, we assume everybody was hoping Nintendo would release an extra large amount of new games this week as some sort of apology. Well, they have chosen to do exactly that, as there's five new games now available!

Last Ninja 2: Back with a Vengeance is quite similar to the first game (also on VC), featuring the same isometric gameplay with fighting and puzzles to solve..

EU VC Release - 23rd May - Paradroid

Seemingly copying the US, Europe's VC only gets one new week. However, because WiiWare launched earlier this week, that makes Europe the only region to get a VC game in the same week as the WiiWare launch (Australia doesn't get C64 games, so we assume they get nothing today!).

Paradroid puts you in control of a robot on board an abandoned starship...

EU VC Releases - 25th April - The Last Ninja

It seems every two weeks we get a Commodore 64 week now - No complaints from us, especially when it means that we get The Last Ninja, an excellent action platformer/puzzler hybrid featuring an agile ninja with a whole assortment of weaponry. The game was incredibly well-received in its day, being the number one selling original creation on the Commodore 64.

Accompanying it is World Games. In a..

EU VC Releases - 11th April - C64 And Master System Madness

You might remember that Europe got the first two Commodore 64 games two weeks ago. Well, this week two more games join them. But that's not all, because the Sega Master System also arrives, and also brings two games with it!

As a new console is arguably more important, we'll list the Master System's games first - Fantasy Zone is a rather colourful...

EU VC Releases - 28th March - Commodore 64

If you like the number 64 you're in luck today - Not only are there three new games, they're all for the Commodore 64 and Nintendo 64! Obviously this also means there's now a new system on VC. Commodore 64 games cost 500 Wii Points each.

As the C64 is arguably bigger news than a new N64 game (It's not that great of a game anyway), its two games are our "top picks" this week. International..

Hardware Focus - Commodore 64

In 1982, TIME magazine named the home computer as its annual "Man of the Year".

It was a non-specific award, given to home computers in general, but looking back, it could be argued that the Commodore 64 deserved the accolade more than most; although TIME had no way of knowing it back then, the C64 went on to become the best-selling home computer...

We've been contacted by a mysterious insider who insists he’s on the team that is currently preparing the new C64 channel, which was officially confirmed last week.

Here are some of the things he's spoken about so far: Each C64 joystick port is individually mapped to each Wii device (be that Wii Remote, Classic Controller, or GC Pad) A popup 'Virtual Keyboard' is featured and is toggled at the..

Commodore 64 coming to Virtual Console

Regular readers will remember that quite some time ago we reported on C64 games coming to the VC. We ended up with egg on our face as it turned out to be some sort of mistake on Nintendo's Norwegian website and no more details about this ever materialised.

It is now the turn of Nintendo's Finnish site to break the news about C64 games coming to the VC as you can see here. The first releases look..

Commodore 64 games to join the Virtual Console!

Home computer nerds will be dancing in the streets at this latest piece of VC news. We have it on the highest authority that Commodore 64 games will soon be coming to the Virtual Console.

Although no specific titles were named, the indications so far are of titles from now defunct U.S. developer Epyx who are best known for their work on the 8-bit Commodore 64 home computer. Epyx also designed the..
