Yoshi's Story on PAL VC

Trio of treats.

This week's Virtual Console update reacquaints us with a legend - or at least, the slightly ropey sequel to a legend - as Nintendo 64 curiosity Yoshi's Story headlines a trio of new games and asks for 1000 Wii points, keen to run, swim and flutter across various environments to undo Baby Bowser's evil plan for world domination.

It's joined today by another of those weirdly priced NeoGeo oddities, Magician Lord, which pre-dates Yoshi's Story by eight years for anyone who might conceivably care, and apparently involves transforming your wizard self into a dragon, samurai, Poseidon and other forms to save your homeland from the evil Gul-Agieze, who is trying to resurrect the God of Destruction using eight tomes of mystical power in a bid for world domination. 900 Wii points gets you the whole story.

Finally, there is Super Air Zonk: Rockability, which sees you transforming into a helicopter, a turtle and a sushi chef in attempts to take down King Drool's plan for, er, world domination. 800 Wii points for that one, since it's a relic from the days of TurboGrafx-16. Who says videogames are all the same? And, for a more balanced (or indeed any) assessment of each game's charms, be sure to stick around for Dan Whitehead's weekly Virtual Console Roundup, which should be up over the weekend.
