Ocarina of Time, Galaga and Super Ghouls and Ghosts come to Japan’s Virtual Console in February


Nintendo announced next month’s virtual console line up in Japan and there are some heavy hitters. The biggest game on the list is the Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, which is being sold for 1,200 points. It’s the most expensive Wii virtual console game to date, but $12 is a small price to pay for a classic. There are a bunch of odd lot PC Engine games too like Wonder Momo, which has a super heroine who “kicks high” actually all Wonder Momo does is kick. Shin Megami Tensei makes the list and in the same month another game about the super natural Yokai Douchuuki comes out. In Yokai Douchuuki you explore a world of ghosts and demons and when you complete the game you’re given one of five endings that range from going to hell, the beast world, the spirit world, or if you’re a good player there is heaven.
