Nintendo has announced that the latest Virtual Console update in the UK and Europe has seen the release of the service's first Commodore 64 titles with the addition of Uridium and International Karate, along with Nintendo 64 racing title Cruis’n USA. Nintendo describes the 1986 shooter Uridium, created by Andrew Braybrook (also behind C64 hit Paradroid), as a "high-speed galactic adventure" where players "defend each of the fifteen planets in this classic shoot’em up to stop the enemy fighters draining precious mineral resources from the planetary cores." International Karate is a "one-on-one fighting game sees players compete in a karate tournament to become the international karate champion," and was created by Archer MacLean, who would go on to produce PSP puzzler Mercury. Both C64 titles sell for 500 Wii Points. Finally, Nintendo says the 1000 Wii Point Cruis’n USA lets player race "the highways of LA, the deserts of Arizona to the nations capital city Washington DC," in a "14-stage cross country solo challenge, as well as a split-screen two player mode to take on a friend head-to-head." No announcement has yet been made on when Commodore 64 titles might make their way stateside.
