Twinkle Star Sprites is on its way to Virtual Console in Japan. Nintendo lists the shooter/puzzle game mash up for release in August.
For those of you that never played Twinkle Star Sprites before, it’s something like a mix of Puyo Puyo and vertical shooter. Enemies you shoot down are sent to your opponents side. Two players pass them back and forth until one player can’t keep up with the cutesy creature rush.
When Twinkle Star Sprites comes out it will cost 900 Wii Points ($9). That’s the same price as Art of Fighting 3, which is also slated for release in August. Hudson’s Super Adventure Island II is also on track for an August release and like other Super Famicom games it will cost 800 Wii Points ($8).
