Just in time for Monster World Collection’s release, the Wii is getting Wonder Boy V: Monster Land III and since Virtua Fighter 5 just came out Sega is also releasing Virtua Fighter 2 Genesis Edition. Konami’s first and only release of the Goemon series, Legend of the Mystical Ninja is coming out and Square-Enix’s first Virtual Console game is Actraiser. Actraiser was one of the creative games on the Super NES where you would spend some of your time playing god and the other part battling Centaurs. Here is what is coming out in March:


 Famicom / NES (500 Points)

The Legend of Valkyrie

Donkey Kong Jr.

    Naturally, Japan gets all the best titles first. :P

    Good to see Square-Enix finally show some support for the Virtual Console. Better yet, they start out with a bang with Actraiser, truly one of the most underrated titles during its launch in the US on the SNES! Now, all we need next is an announcement that this is set for an Western release for the VC.

    Legend of the Mystical Ninja is another overlooked title that I wouldn’t mind getting an confirmation for here too. Simply put, they’re both titles that deserve a second chance on the market, and there’s no better place to start than the VC.

    I think that’s “Lode Runner”, not “Load Runner”
