New Classic Games for the Wii just released

Yep, these games came out about an hour and 37 min ago. The Wii has 3 new games that are now available for the Virtual Console.

The new games are:

Xevious (NES, 1-2 players, 500 Wii Points):

Players control their Solvalou ship and destroy the XEVIOUS forces. Fire the zapper missiles against air-based enemies and drop the blaster bombs down upon ground-based targets. Destroy Andor Genesis to earn bonus points. Unique enemies, interesting background music, a variety of vertically scrolling background environments and many hidden game play features differentiated Xevious from the other shooting games released at the time.

Xevious is probably the hardest NES game to beat. It is an unlockable game in Star Fox Assult and Xevious was one of the key games in making the origional Star Fox

R-Type III: The Third Lightning (Super NES, 1-2 players, 800 Wii Points):

It was believed on Earth that the deadly BYDO Empire had been destroyed – but now they’ve returned, as nasty as ever. Their ships and armies are more powerful than before, and Earth will surely be conquered unless the new R-90 ship can destroy them. Powered with engines that launch it into different dimensions, and armed with the Round, Shadow and Cyclone Forces, the R-90 has what it takes to wipe out the BYDO threat. The BYDO mother ship must be found and destroyed to entirely erase the species from our galaxy.

I have not actually played this game. So I have no comment.

Moto Roader
(TurboGrafx16, 1-5 players, 600 Wii Points):

Moto Roader is a futuristic racing game that allows up to five players to compete against each other. Players use the cash earned when they win a race to power up their machine. Not only can they change the “TIRE” and “BODY” of their vehicles, but they also can add “SPECIAL” parts. Jump over tall obstacles with a “HOPPER” and blast past rivals at incredible speeds with “NITRO.” What multiplayer game would be complete without attack items? Use a forward-launching “GRENADE” or a backward-dropping “BOMBER” to blow up and knock away rivals. Outmaneuver rivals in all eight heats to become the champion. Any combination of Wii Remote and GameCube controllers can be used in multiplayer games.

MotoRoader is a pretty decent game. It isn’t half bad. The start menu looks like something out of Super Mario Bros. But still, you might wanna try this one out.
