On Monday we revealed that Nintendo would be bringing the Neo Geo to Virtual Console in Europe very soon. Little did we know that it would be as soon as this Friday! But here we are with another VC update for Wii owners and here is the first ever Neo Geo game to grace the service.
Kicking off this week's Virtual Console treats is Fatal Fury, originally release for NEO GEO. Launched in 1991, this is an action-packed beat 'em up which helped to shape the genre. Players can choose from one of three playable fighters: Terry Bogard, Andy Bogard and Joe Higashi, each with their own unique moves. The aim of the game is to defeat a variety of foes on the way to a show-down with the South Town crime boss Geese Howard. Fatal Fury is available now for 900 Wii Points.
Next in this week's line-up is the incredible Streets of Rage 3, originally released on SEGA MEGA DRIVE in 1994. The Syndicate and sinister Mr X are back and tormenting the city once again with life-like robots which have taken the place of various city officials. It's up to well-loved heroes Axel, Skate and Blaze to foil this plot with their mind-blowing fighting abilities. Streets of Rage 3 features more weapons, control moves and faster gameplay than previous games in the series, as well as secret characters and multiple endings to unlock. Available to download on Virtual Console for 800 Wii Points, this is one game you definitely won't want to miss.
If you feel like embarking on an epic quest, then this week's Virtual Console has just the game for you with Golden Axe III, the final title in the Golden Axe series. Once again a peaceful kingdom is under threat from the Prince of Darkness who has stolen the mystical Golden Axe and rendered all of its warrior's harmless thanks to an evil curse. But all is not lost; one warrior has broken free of the evil curse and can fight the prince to regain the Golden Axe and save his kingdom. Players can select one of three characters, a giant, a panther or a sword-wielding human in this classic one
