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.
