Well, it seems from now on that we’re only getting two games a week, which makes me a bit sad, but hey, once again, we’re getting games regularly, regardless of holidays and what not.

Last week, Nintendo pushed Super Smash Bros. Brawl back from February 10 to March 9, which was only notable because my birthday was the day after Brawl was to be released. Perhaps sensing that I was still upset over that, Nintendo decided to surprise me out of nowhere and drop one of my favorite games of all time on the Virtual Console today.

Okay, Nintendo, you’re forgiven. For now.

This week’s two games are:

The Adventures of Lolo 2 (NES, 1 player, Rated E for Everyone, 500 Wii Points): Lolo and Lala are back in this sequel to the popular puzzle game The Adventures of Lolo. On their return from the Haunted Castle, the Great Devil kidnaps Lala and challenges Lolo to rescue her again. Now he must take on the challenge of the Great Devil’s Tower and Castle mazes. Fortunately, Lala was able to analyze each of the mazes as she was taken to the tower and left clues in the Jewel Boxes in each room. Each Jewel that Lolo collects contains information that will help him in the next room. In order to succeed, he’ll also have to push tiles, pick up Heart Framers, temporarily turn enemies into Eggs with his Magic Shots and ward off enemy attacks by moving Emerald Framers. With your help, Lolo and Lala will work together to escape the Great Devil’s clutches and defeat him.

Super Street Fighter II: The New Challengers (Super NES, 1-2 players, Rated T for Teen – Violence, 800 Wii Points): When Super Street Fighter II: The New Challengers debuted, the fighting-game genre was forever changed. Along with a revolutionary combo system, the game introduced a new set of challengers to fight alongside the original Street Fighter II cast. In addition to the classic characters of Ryu, Ken, Chun-Li, Guile, Blanka, E. Honda, Zangief, Dhalsim, Balrog, Vega, Sagat and M. Bison, take control of four brand-new characters in exciting head-to-head fighting game play. Choose T. Hawk and his unmatched strength to crush your opponents, use Deejay’s unrivaled kickboxing ability to defeat your opponents, unleash your inner dragon with the furious kung fu of Fei Long and drill your rivals with the deadly beauty of Cammy. Get ready for the Street Fighter tournament and the fight of your life.

The Adventures of Lolo 2 is debuting on the North American Virtual Console. Super Street Fighter II: The New Challengers came out on the Japanese Virtual Console in December. Both titles are now available on the Wii Shop Channel for download, and if you were wondering, Super Street Fighter II was the game I mentioned in the sub header.

    Ahh…Street Fighter 2. How many hours of my misspent youth did I give to thee?

    Here’s a virtual consol question for you. Can I play VC games with the Wii remote, or do I need to by the other controller? Thanks!
