    Rev UK VC Friday Round-up: The Sin Bin

    via IGN

    As Nintendo Europe's Hanabi Festival draws to a close, Sin and Punishment, one of the rarest N64 games of all time, finally makes it way to the UK. No doubt infuriating all those eBayers trying to charge hundreds of pounds for the original cartridge version.

    Regularly cited as one of the best N64 action games, Sin and Punishment is an on-rails shooter by legendary developer Treasure, originally only released in Japan. While it does come in at a rather hefty 1,200 Wii Points (roughly GBP 8.40), it's probably worth a look given its place in Nintendo history.

    This week's other Hanabi title is Gradius III, released on SNES in North America way back when. As with most Gradius games, you're tasked with flying through streams of enemies while blasting away with increasingly large lasers.

    Finally then, there's Turbografx platformer Legend of Hero Tonma. Playing as caped hero Tommy (perhaps not the most heroic name ever), you're tasked with rescuing a Princess by jumping your way through side-scrolling platform sections, shooting fireballs and bouncing on the heads of enemies. Hmm... it all sounds strangely familiar.

    All three titles are available now - and, as a reminder, if you haven't already downloaded Super Mario Bros. The Lost Levels, this weekend is your last chance with the game set to disappear forever from October 1.

    Holy hell! Sin and Punishment!? Since when did it ever get released outside of Japan? Does this mean it's coming to the US as well? I would buy it in a heartbeat if it did! Very sweet news!
