Nintendo’s Wii-kly Virtual Console update this week is, in a word, disappointing – only one release. As usual, the game will be available for download at 9 a.m. PST (12 pm EST).
Romance of the Three Kingdoms IV: Wall of Fire™ (Super NES, 1-8 players, 800 Wii Points): Romance of the Three Kingdoms IV is a tactical simulation game in which the player takes the role of a ruler seeking to unite China in the era of the three kingdoms of Wei, Wu and Shu. The role of the ruler is to command a range of officers with differing characteristics – some cunning strategists, others brave warriors – and strengthen the military might of his or her kingdom. Foreign policy, involving forming alliances with certain kingdoms and hatching plans to weaken others, will play a major role in this process. Once players have developed a powerful enough military, it will be time to expand their borders through military conquest. Ultimate victory will only be achieved once all 43 cities in China lie within a player’s control.
Seriously, the guys over at Nintendo have to get on the ball with this because one to three releases a week isn’t going to cut it. And where the hell is my Goldeneye for the N64?
