VC Friday: A trip to the Fantasy Zone

After last week's fairly abominable update, Space Harrier is back to save us all. The last time we played Sega's classic rail shooter was in the arcades of Shenmue, and we seem to recall it feeling a bit ancient, but still being a bit of a hoot.

Also appearing is Street Fighter II: Special Championship Edition (which, rather ludicrously, is the third variation of Street Fighter II to appear on the PAL Virtual Console) and Mayhem in Monsterland, one of the very last of the Commodore 64's 20,000 or so titles, and a graphical stunner for the time. Footage of all three is past the break.
  • Street Fighter II: Special Championship Edition -- Mega Drive -- 800 Nintendo Points
  • Mayhem in Monsterland -- Commodore 64 -- 500 Nintendo Points*
  • Space Harrier -- Master System -- 500 Nintendo Points
