Smashing its way into our news face today are three new updates for European Virtual Console, lead by the comical-slugger Punch Out for NES.

Here you strap on the gloves of a glass-chinned rookie, as you attempt to dazzle your way up to the big time and become the champion of the world.

Stepping into the ring next is The Legend of the Mystical Ninja, a SNES action adventure. You get to play as Kid Ying or Dr. Yang on your quest to rescue a kidnapped princess, completing tasks and battling waves of enemies on your own, or in two-player co-op.

Finally there's the TurboGrafx-16 classic, Dragon Curse. Here, just like many past weekends, you have a run in with a nasty dragon that leaves you as part lizard, part man. Naturally you're not too pleased with these circumstances and will have to seek out the Salamander Cross if you want to return to being human, which will naturally involve lots of fighting and plenty of dragon bosses.

You can get hold of all three from the Wii Shop Channel now. Remember that NES nibbles will cost you 500 Wii points, SNES sizzlers 800, and TurboGrafx ticklers 600.
