The latest Virtual Console update for the Nintendo Wii is now live across North America, with three new games duly available to download, play, complete, etc. It's sort of a cycle, isn't it?
SNES port Gradius III is the highlight of the latest update, the old school shoot 'em up weighing in at 800 Wii points. Not that this is only title available newly this week. Players can also land Wonder Boy in Monster World from the Megadrive era, again for 800 points, or Battle Lode Runner from the TurboGrafx-16 for 600 points.
Wonder Boy is all about platform-style gameplay mixed in with a few RPG aspects, while Lode Runner promises a more action-orientated approach and even a level editor. Five players are supported.
PAL regions will be updated separately, probably with three similar games, this coming Friday.
