This weeks' new releases on the US Virtual Console come in the form of Harvest Moon SNES and the TurboGrafx-16 title, Lords of Thunder, available from 9am PST.
Harvest Moon on the SNES is the first title in the now-legendary series that spans all Nintendo consoles to date. You know the drill: you've recently bought the farm, but unfortunately for you it's not a euphemism for death and you now have to get to work on making your patch of land somehow profitable. Juggle your time between feeding animals, watering vegetables and wooing women, creating a stress-inducing schedule that would sap the soul of most. All this and more could be yours for 800 Wii points.
Meanwhile, Lords of Thunder is complemented by the sick shredding tunes used by late 80s metal artists to usher in world-peace. It's a shoot-em-up too and also only 800 Wii Points.
