March 30, 2007 - Nintendo Japan has announced its Virtual Console lineup for April, and there seems to be enough material to restart classic system wars. PC Engine fans can look forward to more Bonk, his late-life sidekick, Zonk, and Bloody Wolf. Sega fans can look forward to Rent a Hero. Nintendo fans? How do Punch Out, Ninja Gaiden, Final Fight and Star Fox 64 sound?
