It looks like Cyril is going to have a light week this week for virtual console games as we're only getting one new game this week. Nintendo announced today that Super Turrican
(800 points) will be the only title making it's way to the system today. I guess this might be a good opportunity to play a game you might have missed but you do have to wonder if this is a sign of things to come or not.
March is roaring in like a lion on the Virtual Console™. This might be a good
time to look back at the massive catalog of classic games and ask yourself if
you’ve played them all. Well, have you? You know there are some unplayed gems
in there that your friends keep raving about, like this week’s release, Super
Turrican. Not to mention the games you haven’t played since you were 10. Go
ahead and fire them up – you’ll feel like a kid again. Just think of the
Virtual Console as your own personal fountain of youth.
Nintendo adds new games to the Wii™ Shop Channel at 9 a.m. Pacific time every
Monday. Wii owners with a high-speed Internet connection can redeem Wii
Points™ to download the games. Wii Points can be purchased in the Wii Shop
Channel or at retail outlets. This week’s new game is:
Super Turrican: (Super NES®, 1 player, Rated E 10+ for Everyone 10 and Older –
Fantasy Violence, 800 Wii Points): You are Bren McGuire, on a United Planets
Freedom Forces mission to save the peaceful planet Katakis from the Machine,

almost any enemy, the Turrican Assault Suit gives one man the power of an
