SEGA duo on US VC this month

Puyo Puyo 2 and Powerball.

American Wii owners will be able to download Puyo Puyo 2 and Powerball Megadrive games later this month, says SEGA of America. They should know.

Both will cost 800 Wii Points, which is approximately GBP 6 / EUR 8 in oddly-written real-life currency.

Puyo Puyo 2 is a puzzle game where you create lines or shapes out of little coloured blobs, which then disappear, and Puyo Puyo 2 is a two-player-focused version where success dumps extra pain on your opponent.

Powerball, meanwhile, is described as "a hybrid of games like rugby and [American] football". So perhaps also a bit like Aussie Rules? It's played on a 100-yard field and you score points by racing it to the endzone or booting it into a net.

Anyway, we never had a Megadrive because Mum wouldn't buy one, and SEGA Europe says it will get back to us about whether these two will be released here in March as well.

Odds on that they will, because VC game releases usually map pretty decently between US and European stores. Wasn't that an exciting news story then eh readers? Come on Monday!
