Virtual Console Gets Neo Geo Games

King of Fighters, Metal Slug and more on the way

Posted by Staff
Itís true. Wiiís Virtual Console is to be blessed with Neo Geo classics later this summer, according to SNK president, Ben Herman.

Herman told ign this week that, "We're aiming for a worldwide release, so that it's available for all regions at once. As far as the date, we're looking to start releasing games around mid-summer of this year.

"We don't want it to be sporadic with one game here, and two or three over the next few months. We really want to have a flow where there are a couple of games available each month, and we'll keep adding to the library that way," he explained.

So, weíll soon be seeing King of Fighters, the Metal Slug series and loads more Neo Geo classics popping up on our Virtual Console each Friday. This news has reassured us that everything is okay with the world today.

The games will set you back a little bit more than VCís Super NES games, which cost 800 Wii Points (£6) the equivalent of two pints of cooking lager.

And if you haven't yet shelled out for the awesome Metal Slug Anthology - (pictured) out now - then shame on you.
