Volleyball, Axelay, Blue's Journey all skulk onto Virtual Console

Filed under: ,

Sometimes, when you look at the crop of titles that Nintendo chooses to release onto the Virtual Console on a given Monday it looks kind of random. But this list makes perfect sense to us. The theme is "games you put on the system when you don't want people playing anything except Super Mario Galaxy." Let's take a look, shall we?

Volleyball (NES, 1-2 players, 500 Wii Points): What if we lived in a world where volleyball was played, instead of by humans, by a race of androids, each of which looked exactly the same? Also, what if it was played with a ball that sometimes sounds like cheese when it is struck and sometimes sounds like metal? Volleyball is a game that dares to ask the tough questions.

Axelay (Super NES, 1 player, 800 Wii Points): This Konami vertically scrolling shooter is the best game this week, but that's a little bit like being the world's tallest midget. If you're absolutely not going to play Super Mario Galaxy, this is the one for you to get.

Blue's Journey (NeoGeo, 1-2 players, 900 Wii Points): Here's the game, it never fails, It makes me wanna wag my tail, when it comes I wanna wail ... FAIL! ... OK, so this game isn't actually based on the hit children's series Blue's Clues. But when we tell you that the main character's main weapon is magical leaf, you may just wish it was.
