Sorry, no Ys or Samurai Shodown 2 this week

After seemingly official announcements from SNK and Hudson on Friday it sure sounded like Samurai Shodown 2 and Ys Books I & II would be this week’s Virtual Console games. Actually, even Hudson still thinks this is the case. Instead of body slamming monsters with Adol you get to play Sonic the Hedgehog… again. Nintendo released the Master System version of Sonic the Hedgehog for 500 Wii Points ($5) and Splatterhouse 2 for 800 Wii Points ($8). I’m lowering my Virtual Console expectations from now on.

On the plus side this WiiWare game is a light gun game. As the title suggests, Wild West Guns is set in the Wild West with probably fewer mechanical spiders that a certain movie starring Will Smith. Wild West Guns costs 1,000 Wii Points.
