Five for Virtual Console this Friday

Pac-Attack, Super Fantasy Zone, more.

Nintendo has updated the Virtual Console with five games this morning including five that still aren't Chrono Trigger. The cads.

The five games that are available are:

  • Cybernoid (C64) GBP 3.50 / EUR 5 (approx)
  • King of the Monsters (Neo Geo) GBP 6.30 / EUR 9 (approx)
  • Pac-Attack (SNES) GBP 6 / EUR 8 (approx)
  • Summer Games 2 (C64) GBP 3.50 / EUR 5 (approx)
  • Super Fantasy Zone (Megadrive) GBP 6 / EUR 8 (approx)

According to Eurogamer's resident Virtual Console stalker, Dan Whitehead, Cybernoid is "Raf Cecco's awesome shoot-'em-up", and King of the Monsters sounds fairly self-explanatory. NeoGeo? Fighting game. Monsters? Giant ones.

Then there's Pac-Attack, which is a falling-blocks puzzle game in the same vein as Tetris. Because you can never have enough of those.

More interesting perhaps is Super Fantasy Zone for the Megadrive. "It's a cute Parodius-style shooter," says Dan, "with free-roaming left and right as you destroy enemy generators in each level to trigger the boss."

Finally, perhaps as a spoiler for SEGA's Beijing 2008 game (we really, really doubt it, but we like conflict - Olympics war!), Summer Games 2 is a button-masher with "prodding recreations of such Tony the Tiger-approved pastimes as Triple Jump, High Jump, Rowing, Javelin, Fencing, Kayaking, Cycling and Mucking About With Horses". Sounds grrrrrreat. Which is a joke we didn't realise you could still do. Thanks Dan.

Watch out for our roundup of all those games soon.
