VC Monday Madness: Samurai Shodown 2 and Ys Book I and II


We're back again, with a fresh video that's piping hot with gaming goodness. Oh, and there's some dude talking over the whole thing. We're sorry about that. He will be taken care of.

After checking out the video above, head past the break for the rest.

Samurai Shodown II (NEOGEO, 1-2 players, 900 Wii Points)

SNK's fighting franchise hasn't enjoyed the large fanbase it has over the years for nothing. No, solid gameplay got them to the place they're at and Samurai Shodown II easily stands the test of time. If you enjoy the genre, Samurai Shodown II should be in your collection in some form.

Ys Book 1 & II(TurboGrafx16 CD-ROM, 1 player, 800 Wii Points)

Apparently, Ys is a big deal? It's actually two games packed in one, for only 8 bucks. So, it's kind of hard to come up with reasons why you shouldn't pick this up. And, given that we don't really like that effort thing, we won't even try. Check out this classic action RPG!

Each week, we here at Wii Fanboy like to check out the latest Virtual Console releases in our VC Monday Madness feature, in the hopes that you can make the most sound decision possible regarding purchasing retro titles from the Wii Shop Channel. If you're looking for more retro goodness, check out Virtually Overlooked, which talks about games that should be on the Virtual Console.
