This has been one of the best weeksfor the Wii Virtual Console ever, with Punch Out being re-released earlier this week. It gets better though, Sega decided to give us a few extra games, which “will soon be available for download on the Wii Shop Channel. Prices start at 800 Wii Points for SEGA Genesis titles.” Here they are:
Streets of Rage 2: To celebrate their defeat of the syndicate exactly one year before, Blaze, Adam and Axel met for drinks. The next morning, Axel received a frantic phone call from Eddie ‘Skate’ Hunter, Adam’s younger brother, whom he was living with on the edge of the city. Blaze and Axel found Adam and Skate’s house wrecked and a picture of Adam chained to a wall at the feet of Mr. X. The city then once again returned to its nightmarish state and criminals ran rampant. Unable to contact their old friend from the military, Axel and Blaze team up with Skate and Max Thunder to free the city and rescue Adam from the Syndicate. It is up to you to take down Mr. X once and for all!
