Nintendo's Virtual Console has added the classic action fighter Streets of Rage to its list of 54 European download titles.
The 1991 Sega Mega Drive game was the first in the Streets of Rage trilogy and, according to Nintendo, "set a new standard for street fighting and gangster-themed games".
The action takes place in an unnamed city where authority has been overturned, with up to two players playing a team of ex-cops taking the law into their own hands.
Streets of Rage can be bought for just 800 Wii Points which works out at £5.60.
Also available for download at the same price are role-playing game Sword of Vermilion and 2D side-scrolling shoot 'em up Bio-Hazard Battle.
These two Sega Mega Drive games are joined by Chew Man Fu, which was first released on the Turbografx.
Chew Man Fu offers 550 rounds of action as gamers try to stop the villain stealing all the fried rice, egg rolls and other favourite snacks from the world.
Chew Man Fu is available to download for 600 Wii Points, which works out at £4.20.
