Despite the game apparently being quite mediocre, we can't help but be excited about the arrival of Hudson's Riot Zone on the Virtual Console this Monday. To be honest, we haven't gotten over the gee-whiz factor of being able to download Turbografx-16 CD-ROM games. Also, we love brawlers. Well, I love brawlers. Dave may have something else to say after playing it.

The game is basically a whole-cloth Final Fight clone, which we're secretly okay with. It's not our copyright. Capcom seems to be doing okay with their whole fighting-game thing, even after being ripped off. Riot Zone at least one-ups Final Fight in awesomely Engrish intro cinemas!
