New Virtual Console – Europe – Friday July 13th

Here’s a non E3 related news. Europe got two new VC games to download today and one that many have been waiting for.

Air “Zonk”
Turbografx – 1992 by Hudson Soft – shooter – 1 player – 600 points

Air “Zonk” is a spin-off of the popular Bonk’s Adventure series. This side-scrolling shooter retains the same cartoonish style of Bonk, but is set in a cyberpunk-esque future. The powerd-up Zonk gathers his friends to form “Team Cool” and they set out to stop King Drool in his plan to conquer the world.

Choose from 3 levels of difficulty and 3 types of Friend Modes. Shoot King Drool’s cyber robots and avoid their fire while collecting the Air Bones to unleash a variety of attacks. Enjoy unique moves like combining with a friend to create an invinvible hybrid form or blasting enemies with a charge attack!

Air “Zonk” is also filled with humour, like the wacky theme song that plays when posting a huge score, or at GAME OVER!

Paper Mario
N64 – 2001 by Nintendo – RPG/action – 1 player – 1000 points

In this sprawling action-RPG, Mario may be two-dimensional but his adventure is anything but thin! Paper Mario brilliantly blends the heroic plumber’s platform antics with a hilarious quest full of offbeat characters and wacky challenges.

Released to critical acclaim in 2001, Paper Mario takes you on an exciting journey through the Mushroom Kingdom to release the Star Spirits imprisoned by a power-hungry Bowser.

Along the way you’ll fight enemies in entertaining turnbased battles, team up with a variety of unique skilled partners, discover secret minigames and even bake a cake!
