Ghouls 'N Ghosts is coming to VC, again.
Nintendo, through an update of their Japanese Virtual Console release list, has unveiled that gamers will soon be able to play SuperGrafx games on the Nintendo Wii. The SuperGrafx, which was released exclusively in Japan back in 1989, is a minimally enhanced version of NEC’s PC Engine (TurboGrafx 16 for the rest of the world).
The system will debut with a port of Capcom’s popular platformer, Ghouls 'N Ghosts. This will not be the first time Ghouls 'N Ghosts has graced the Virtual Console; the Genesis port was released last summer in North America and Europe. The SuperGrafx port is known to have superior animation than the Genesis version.
There will be very few future Virtual Console releases for the SuperGrafx, if any. In all, the system only had five dedicated games released, with an additional two PC Engine games, both versions of the shooter Darius, that had slight graphical upgrades when run on the SuperGrafx. Ghouls 'N Ghosts will retail for 800 Wii Points upon its Japanese release in October. There is no word yet if SuperGrafx games will be appearing in the rest of the world.
