Master System: The Wii Virtual Console edition

Or, to put it another way, Sega Master System games have just made it to the Wii Virtual Console, meaning that with a few points (probably around 500) everyone will be able to enjoy them brilliant 8-bit classics we all love and enjoy. For now only two games will be made available in Japan, but it's pretty sure that the SMS love will soon hit both Europe and the US.

Them first two games are Fantasy Zone, the excellent cartoony shmup, and the Fist of the North Star, a pretty decent fighting game. Surely Phantasy Star will follow. Find out more here and -for those fluent in Japanese- here.

Fantasy Zone is a very good shmup indeed, but I can't help and suggest Impossible Mission C64...
