Virtual Console gets interesting

Second Hanabi Festival under way.

The second Hanabi Festival is under way on the Virtual Console, so you can play all sorts of foreign games never released over here.

These include puzzle game Columns III: Revenge of Columns (Megadrive) and horizontal scrolling-shooter Gradius II (TurboGrafx-CD), plus scrolling-shooter Final Soldier (TurboGrafx-CD).

Unfortunately, because these are rare, Nintendo has seen fit to bump the prices for no apparent reason; air fares and stuff, probably.

Columns III costs 900 Wii Points (GBP 6.30 / EUR 9 approx), while Gradius II and Final Soldier cost 700 Wii Points (GBP 4. 90 / EUR 7 approx).

Look out for our Virtual Console roundup later today.
