Trio of continental treats for VC

Scrolling shooters and boxing.

Nintendo has plopped three more exotic oldies on its Virtual Console for you to enjoy.

Our favourite is Gley Lancer, a scrolling shooter for the Megadrive that was given the wrong title because Japanese people struggle with the pronunciation of the English "r". Seriously. Brilliant. Costs 900 Wii Points (GBP 6.30 / EUR 9 approx)..

Star Parodier (TG16) is another scrolling shooter and, like Parodius was a parody of Gradius, is a parody of Star Soldier. Costs 900 Wii Points (GBP 6.30 / EUR 9 approx).

The other game on offer is Digital Champ Battle Boxing (TG16), which is more or less a sexier version of Punch Out. Costs 700 Wii Points (GBP 5 / EUR 7 approx).

Dan Whitehead, who hunts these down for us - and basically writes the news story - will be putting them through their paces for you. So if you're unsure of handing over the cheeky asking price, hold your horses for his thoughts.
