22nd June, 2007- This week sees the return of the ground breaking action platformer, Mega Man™, on the Wii’s Virtual Console. Originally released in 1989 on the Nintendo Entertainment System, players must assume the role of Mega Man and fight their way through six action-packed stages, defeating bosses as they go in a desperate effort to save the city from evil Dr Wily and his robot army! Players must defeat enemies by shooting at them and navigate complex obstacles using their agility and speed. Once they have defeated bosses in all the stages players must defeat the final bosses, utilising the power-ups earned through previous victories! This punchy game, renowned for its music and challenging gameplay is available for download this week for 500 Wii Points.

This week you can also get your hands on side-scrolling beat‘em up and Kung-Fu extravaganza China Warrior.
