Dig Dug surfaces with My Pokemon Ranch, and another VC import


    biob.jpgWhile rumored to be rejected in the late 80s, Bio Miracle Bokutte Upa is definitely good enough for North America 20 years after it originally came out on the Famicom Disc System. It is one of today’s Virtual Console import games. The Famicom version of Dig Dug is the other. Like other Virtual Console imports, both of these cost 100 Wii Points more than a standard NES game, for a total of 600 Wii Points ($6).  


    Alternatively, you can skip the downloadable import scene and pick up My Pokemon Ranch (i.e. Minna no Pokemon Ranch or literary, Everyone’s Pokemon Ranch in Japan) and store 1,000 Pokemon from Pokemon Diamond and Pearl. Once transferred onto the Wii the Pokemon transform into 3D, you can watch them interact with your Mii, and send photos of life on the Pokemon farm to your friends. The WiiWare title costs 1,000 Wii Points ($10), which equates to a penny per stored Pokemon..
