Hanabi Festival Returns to PAL Virtual Console
« on: July 06, 2009, 05:18:44 AM »
A new wave of import releases is underway, with eight classic titles coming to European shores for the first time during July.

 Nintendo has announced that a new "Hanabi Festival"—where classic games previously unreleased in PAL territories are made available to download from the Wii Shop Channel—is now underway and will run through the rest of July.    

The July 3 update kicked-off the proceedings with the Super NES tactical RPG, Ogre Battle: March of the Black Queen (900 Nintendo Points), and Pulseman, a Mega Drive platformer developed by PokĂ©mon creators Game Freak (also 900 Points). A further six import Virtual Console games will launch over the course of this month; see below for a list of the rest of the games.    

  • Bomberman '94 (Turbografx)
  • Kirby's Dream Land 3 (Super Nintendo)
  • Zoda's Revenge: StarTropics II (NES)
  • DETANA TWIN BEE (Turbografx)
  • Smash Table Tennis (NES)

Random Fact: Many magazines who reviewed Drill Dozer made comparisons to Pulseman due to it's wackiness.

Having played Pulseman via the horrid illegal means, this game needs to be released on the NA VC soon. I love it.

It's an epic festival. Downloading both these, Kirby 3 and probably Star Tropics 2. Must support Star Tropics to lobby for sequel.
