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 Pokémon 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)
- MUSHA (SEGA MEGA DRIVE)
- DETANA TWIN BEE (Turbografx)
