VC Friday: Convergence


Up until now, Virtual Console and WiiWare games in PAL regions have played nicely, each politely waiting their turn to appear on alternate Fridays. This week, they've both appeared on the same day, scrapping it out for your love. This is what we wanted to happen from the start, but since WiiWare appeared, Nintendo has had an excuse to offer less on the VC.

Anyhow, that's another rant for another post. Critter Round-Up and the totally obscure MaBoShi: The Three Shape Arcade are the latest WiiWare additions, while the Hanabi Festival continues with Bio Miracle Bokutte Upa (parts of which look like some of our dreams -- eating through miles of cake) and Dig Dug. Is Dig Dug really worthy of a Hanabi Festival release? Hasn't it already appeared on every format known to man?

  • Bio Miracle Bokutte Upa -- NES -- 600 Wii Points
  • Dig Dug -- NES -- 600 Wii Points
  • MaBoShi: The Three Shape Arcade -- WiiWare -- 800 Wii Points
  • Critter Round-Up -- WiiWare -- 1000 Wii Points
Munch your way through the break, which isn't made of cake, for footage of all four.
