The lights are on
One of the 16-bit era's best co-op games is now available on the Wii U's virtual console.
The typical Wii U Virtual Console pricing structure applies here: the game is $7.99, but if you purchased and downloaded the game for your Wii, then you will only have to pay $1.50 to upgrade to the Wii U version.
It may not be Contra III, but we recently Replayed Neo Contra and had a great time.
Our TakeI'm a big fan of Contra III, so I am very happy to see this on Wii U. There are a lot of other games we're still missing, though. Most of them begin with the word Final and end with the word Fantasy (and a number).
