Interesting side note: Lolo and Lala eventually appeared in the Kirby series as bosses Lololo and Lalala.
Galaga ’90 (TurboGrafx16, 1 player, rated E for Everyone, 600 Wii Points): This is an updated version of the classic arcade shooter Galaga. Set in the vast reaches of space, you will fight your way through all 29 rounds to reach the enemies’ stronghold on Planet Galaga. Game levels consist of a few rounds with changing enemies and backgrounds. To top it off, the nostalgic “Galactic Dancing” lives on to mark the end of each level. With the new addition of dimensions, you can choose your attack route. Collect capsules and open dimension warps at branch sections to take on even tougher enemies. Galaga ’90’s inclusion of the triple fighter, scrolling backgrounds, boss Galaga and even new system effects make it nothing less than a masterpiece.
Wave Race 64 debuted in Japan last week. Adventures of Lolo has been available on the Japanese and European Virtual Consoles since June. Galaga ’90 is currently available on the North American Virtual Console only. All three games will be available for download on the Wii Shop Channel starting at 12 p.m. Eastern/9 a.m. Pacific.
