Ninja Gaiden, Rygar coming to Virtual Console
Both games have been rated for the Wii meaning that they will be arriving shortly.
Ninja Gaiden — rated E10+
This is an arcade-style action game in which players assume the role of a ninja who fights his way through a 2D side-scrolling environment. Players punch, kick, and use swords to slash at street thugs carrying batons and blades. Occasional boss battles require players to attack stronger enemies in more protracted battle. When players lose all their “lives,” a “Game Over” screen depicts a circular saw being lowered down on the central character as the screen fades to red. In one area of the game, a background mural shows a man in a tight-fitting leather outfit that exposes portions of his buttocks. Some billboards and signs display the word beer.
Rygar — rated E10+
This is an arcade-style action game in which players fight their way through 2D side-scrolling environments to earn points and achieve the highest score. Players can punch demons, dragons, lava creatures, and large birds, or use a projectile-chain weapon to defeat them. Enemies react to damage by dissolving in a red-and-white burst of bones. In one level, there are small animal skulls in the background.
