European Wii owners can get four new games for the Virtual Console today--three Sega Mega Drive (known as Genesis in the US) games and one NES title--bringing the total available in Europe up to 42.
The games, which are already available in the US, include Gradius, a side-scrolling shoot-'em-up from Konami that was first playable on the NES, and Bonanza Bros, a Mega Drive platform game where one or two players can take on the roles of brothers Robo and/or Mobo, two bungling burglars.
Also out today is Comix Zone, which tells its story through a series of comic book panels and tasks gamers to fight the bad guys before they can turn the page. Finally, Gain Ground is an arcade-inspired game where players battle as one of 12 characters over 50 levels.
Gradius will cost 500 Wii Points, and Bonanza Bros, Comix Zone, and Gain Ground each cost 800.
