[News] [Retro] [Wii]

Wii Virtual Console Banner

Nintendo has offered up only two Virtual Console titles for PAL territory gamers today: Mega Man 2 and Top Hunter.  Everybody knows Mega Man, but I have honestly never heard of this week's NeoGeo title.

Mega Man 2
NES - 1 Player - 500 Points - Capcom - 1989

Mega Man 2 takes place precisely one year after the original Mega Man, which was set in the year 200X.

Just when everyone thought they could live in peace and that an age of prosperity had dawned upon them, the evil Dr. Wily who had threatened the world once already, revealed that he had built a new fortress and an army of robotic henchmen, led by eight new Robot Masters of his design. He unleashed them on the world for revenge against the world's hero Mega Man. Once again, the populace called on Mega Man to stop the chaos before the world was engulfed in the flames of destruction.

With the aid of his creator Dr. Light, Mega Man crushed the eight new Robot Masters and then set out for Wily's new fortress, where he had to face more creations and Wily himself. In the final fight, Wily morphed into an alien, but Mega Man defeated it and discovered that it was merely a hologram. After the scientist once again begged for mercy, Mega Man let Wily go, then took a long walk to think things through and returned home.



Top Hunter: Roddy & Cathy
NeoGeo - 1 Player - 900 Points - SNK - 1994

As either Roddy or Cathy, make your way through four locations that include Forest, Ice, Wind, and Fire, and destroy the two bosses in these locations. Both Roddy and Cathy have retractable arms which can be used to grab enemies or other gameplay elements. They can then be thrown at others to destroy them. Both players and enemies can interact with the scenery. For example, walls can be pushed over enemies to kill them, and switches can be flipped to reveal special bonuses.Throughout each location, you can pull on rings that will reveal special bonuses such as extra time. There are two different planes which the players can change between by pressing a button.
