VC Friday: Bit.Trip: Beat plus the impossible


This week, as promised, Bit. Trip: Beat arrives on the PAL Wii Shop, ready to hypnotize and frustrate another set of Wii gamers. But that's not the only reason this week is special: it's joined by a Virtual Console game. That's right, Virtual Console and WiiWare in the same week. Totally crazy, right? Galaxy Force II, stripped of its brilliant moving arcade cabinet for the Genesis version, comes off as a sort of Space Harrier ... in space. It's not great, but it sure is a Virtual Console game!

It gets crazier: there are also two DSiWare games in the lineup.

Virtual Console:
  • Galaxy Force II (Mega Drive,1 player, 800 Wii Points)
  • Bit. Trip: Beat (1-4 players, 600 Wii Points)
  • A Little Bit of ... Dr. Mario (1 player, 500 DSi Points)
  • A Little Bit of ... Magic Made Fun: Funny Face (1 player, 200 DSi Points)
