One of the most requested Neo Geo fighters

For the first time in a long while, Japan will actually be receiving fewer Wii Virtual Console games than another region. Europe, to be precise, all because of the truckload of Virtual Console games scheduled for March. Japan will still receive four games though, so let's take a look at what they are.

Japan's full list for March is as follows:


  • Double Dragon II: The Revenge — The second game in Technos' beat 'em up series, this has already been rated by some western rating boards, so we're confident we'll see it elsewhere soon as well.

Neo Geo:

  • Bakuretsu Roman: Gekka no Kenshi — Similarly to Samurai Shodown, this is a 2D fighter in which the combatants use weapons. Released in the west as The Last Blade, this and its sequel have been two of the most wanted Neo Geo fighters, so we're glad to see the first is finally coming.
  • Soccer Brawl — A football/soccer game in which you can attack other players. It's not really that fondly remembered, though.

Virtual Console Arcade:

  • Nekketsu Kouha Kunio-kun — The first game in the Kunio-kun series. The westernised version of the NES port was Renegade, already released on the Wii Virtual Console in North America, but will we see the arcade original anywhere else?
