It seems like forever since we last got a Virtual Console game on Wii, but the service is back from the dead with a new Super Nintendo title from Ubisoft. Not only that, there's a Game Boy Color game too. Let's get to it.

Wii Virtual Console

Prince of Persia (Super NES, Ubisoft, 800pts) — The rather good Super Nintendo version of Jordan Mechner's classic adventure game finally comes to the Wii. Look for our upcoming review to see if it's still worth the money.

3DS Virtual Console

Prince of Persia (Game Boy Color, Ubisoft, £4.50/€5) — What? Two PoP games in one week? Such is the generosity of Nintendo and Ubisoft, as the GBC version comes to Europe. Can it justify its £4.50 price tag? We'll let you know.

3DS Demos

Resident Evil Revelations (Capcom, free) — A free trial of next week's big 3DS game. Who can resist?

Cooking Mama 4 (505 Games, free) — And a slightly less exciting — but still welcome — tasting menu for Mama's 3D cooking adventures.


40-in-1 Explosive Megamix (Nordcurrent, 800pts) — Another compendium from Nordcurrent, can it improve on the publisher's previous DSiWare output? We'll tell you with our review, coming soon.

Come On! Heroes (CIRCLE Entertainment, 200pts) — Another game from the studio that loves the word "heroes", CIRCLE's action game isn't a bad way to spend 200 Points, as our Come On! Heroes review explains.
