Four more for Euro VC

This week sees the release of Streets of Rage for the Nintendo Wii's download centre.


Last week, Europeans got access to The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time on the Wii's Virtual Console. This week four more titles have been released, including Sega's Streets of Rage, for European Wii owners.

Streets of Rage was originally released in 1991 for the Sega Mega Drive, and was the first game in the trilogy. The street fighting game for one or two players has gamers playing ex-cops who have taken the law into their own hands.

Also released today is role-playing game Sword of Vermilion, originally released on the Sega Mega Drive, where players battle to save the world of Vermilion, and 2D side-scrolling shoot-'em-up Biohazard Battle, also a Sega Mega Drive game.

The final title on the list is Chew Man Fu for TurboGrafx, a one- to two-player game of 550 rounds in which players must battle to fight a curse to rob the world of tasty snacks.

All this week's titles cost 800 Wii Points, except Chew Man Fu, which weighs in at 600 points.
