Surprise! MSX game finally available on Japanese VC

Unable to resist the opportunity to release a game late even as they were releasing it on time, D4 Enterprise has finally released one of their two planned MSX games (which are now over a year late). Aleste has been added to today's lineup of Virtual Console games, for 800 Wii Points. The other announced MSX game, EGGY, has been postponed for an unspecified amount of time.

Sliding a single release in under the wire is sort of an inauspicious debut for the MSX, but it's better than seeing those two games delayed over and over again, loitering at the bottom of Nintendo's Virtual Console lineup page.
