Breath of Fire sets light to Euro VC

Three new titles for the Europeans this week, including Galaga '90 and Breath of Fire II.


It's Friday, which means it's almost the weekend. It also means that European Wii owners get their weekly Virtual Console updates. This week, there are three new games up for grabs, the first being the 1996 Super Nintendo Entertainment System title Breath of Fire II.

Breath of Fire II, the second title in the Japanese role-playing game series, was developed by Capcom. Players take on the role of Ryu, who soon gathers a group of allies on a mission to rescue his sister, with plenty of dragon-bashing along the way.

Galaga '90 is second on this week's list, not originally released in 1990 as suggested in the title, but 1989. The TurboGrafx-16 arcade shooter has gamers blasting their way through wave after wave of aliens to breach the enemy planet Galaga. Players plan their own route, picking up capsules, and opening new dimensions.

The final title for this week is Volleyball, a sports game of (surprise!) volleyball. There are eight male and female teams to choose from, and gamers can practice rounds and participate in international volleyball competitions.

Breath of Fire II is available for download for 800 Wii Points (approx £5.60), Galaga '90 for 600 Wii points (£4.20), and Volleyball for 500 Wii Points (£3.50).
