Wonder Boy III now on Virtual Console

Along with NES title Clu Clu Land.

Polish your rose-tinted spectacles and set your sat nav to Memory Lane – another pair of olden days games are now available on the Virtual Console.

First up is Clu Clu Land, a maze game that first appeared on the NES. You must manoeuvre bubbles around, avoiding spiky sea urchins and defending yourself with sonic shockwaves. Yours for 500 Wii Points (GBP 3.50 / EUR 5).

For something a bit more contemporary, how about Mega Drive title Wonder Boy III: Monster Lair? Save the world of Xenobia by battling enemies, collecting power-ups and battling more enemies. A friend can join in, playing as the lovely Priscilla. The game costs 800 Wii Points (GBP 6 / EUR 8).

The new additions bring the total number of games available on the Virtual Console to 280. Crumbs.
