This week on the Virtual Console we've got shirtless, muscular men and sidescroller shoot-em-ups. The last time these two worlds met, we were graced with with Cho Aniki. Now that we're done with the history lesson, on with the VC releases!
Digital Champ Battle Boxing (TurboGrafx16, 1 player, 700 Wii Points): With Punch-Out!!! already available on Virtual Console -- and with infinitely more exclamation points -- we can only recommend this as a basis for comparison.
GRADIUS II GOFER NO YABOU (TurboGrafx16 CD-ROM, 1 player, 900 Wii Points): Don't be fooled by the subtitle; so far as we know, there are no gophers in the game -- and here we were hoping it was a typo lost in translation about some Caddyshack tie-in. Instead, it's a sequel to the classic sidescrolling"shmup" Gradius.
