Princess Tomato in the Salad Kingdom comes to VC

For anyone who thinks Nintendo aren’t releasing true classics onto their Virtual Console store can think again with this weeks US release of Princess Tomato in the Salad Kingdom. Yes, that’s right. The 1988 NES ‘hit’ follows Sir Cucumber’s quest to rescue Princess Tomato from the wicked Minister Pumpkin after his rebellion dethroned King Broccoli. I kid you not, Hudson Soft published the game which has somewhat of a cult following and can now be replayed for 500 Wii Points. Gameplay is similar to a text adventure with MOVE, LOOK and TALK becoming your best friends while combat is handled by bouts of Finger Wars – Rock, Paper, Scissors to us non-vegetable folk. Expect it to be available in Europe later this week if it does indeed make it over the pond. Read more to watch the game in action…
