Cruis'n USA and two C64 games hit Virtual Console

Yesterday, the UK region got their weekly VC update and with it came Cruis’n USA for the N64 and Uridium as well as International Karate. The big news here is those latter games because they’re the first Commodore 64 games to arrive on the service. That said, the USA should see these games in the near future, maybe even as soon as this Monday.

As for the quality of these games, please don’t expect anything special. I have very fond memories of playing Cruis’n USA with my older sister. When I fired up the game last weekend for nostalgia purposes, I quickly came to the realization that it was a very poor game and my happy memories were tarnished almost instantly.

As for the other two games, Uridium is yet another Space-Shooter, and God knows the VC has more than enough of those. So many, in fact that you’re probably sick of the genre by now.

I haven’t played International Karate, but I have heard that its superior sequel, International Karate Plus is poised to arrive on the VC in the future, so you might want to save your Wii Points for when that one hits.
