Three more for Virtual Console

Not very festive.

Nintendo has staggered out of the kebab shop dressed as an elf just in time to put three more games on Virtual Console this Friday, including two for the NES and one for TurboGrafx-16. So not really "including" so much as "consisting of" but there is no time we cannot go back forward forward forever never stopping paragraph.

The three games in question, which you will be able to read about in Dan Whitehead's award-evading Virtual Console Roundup tomorrow, are Blades of Steel, a popular young person's (old person's?) ice hockey game; Skate or Die, a game about not being as good as California Games; and Monster Lair, a game about a dragon who is all up in your face giving it all that.

Find out what they are really all about tomorrow. Or, if you're stupid, buy them. They cost 500 Wii Points each for the two NES games (Blades of Steel and Skate or Die - I should have explained that earlier - I've basically mentally checked out at this point), which is approximately GBP 3.50 in cold, hard, pound-symbol denying browser cash, and 800 Wii Points for the TurboGrafx-16 one, which is about 1.6 times that.
