  • Virtual Console New Releases (2/20)

    Nintendo didn't let Christmas keep it from releasing new games for the Wii's Virtual Console service every Monday, so it's no surprise the publisher had a slate of titles ready for release on Presidents' Day. While some Americans took Monday off in honor of past leaders, they had four new releases waiting for them on the Wii Shop Channel.

    The four new titles each came from a different console originally, but they all share an action bent. Rare's 3D-rendered Super Nintendo game Donkey Kong Country and Sega's beat-'em-up Streets of Rage for the Genesis arrived as the week's heavy hitters, each costing 800 Wii Points ($8). They are backed by a pair of lesser-known offerings, Taito's The Legend of Kage for the Nintendo Entertainment System and Hudson's "get busy eating or get busy dying" platformer New Adventure Island for the TurboGrafx-16. The Legend of Kage can be told for 500 Wii Points ($5), while a trip to the island will cost gamers 600 Wii Points ($6).

    Each of the games is rated E for Everyone, except for Streets of Rage, which is rated E10+ for Everyone 10 and Older.

    So, if Rare games show up, does that mean Goldeneye and Perfect Dark are a possibility?
    change must come from within

      Now thats a tricky one, I'd say theres no chance for Perfect Dark but a slight one for Goldeneye. The Bond licence is owned by Activision so there another hurdle.

      I think we'll get DK64 and hopefully Diddy Kong Racing but the other N64 games wont come.

              Basically everything lol The main reason I want to buy one is for the classic N64 games like Super Mario 64 and DK64.

                There's only 2 N64 games right now. Mario 64 & Mario Kart 64. Both amazing games, obviously. But there will certainly be more. Donkey Kong 64 is almost a lock. The N64 Zelda's are a lock.

                  I wouldnt of thought Zelda because they re-released them on the GC with the collectors edition and didnt Windwaker come with them as well??

                  i would love to see Perfect Dark, Goldeneye, Banjo and Kazooie and Tooie, Lyat Wars, South Park (loved it when i was a kid) Rouge Squadron, Shadows Of The Empire.

                  there just a few of the top of my head

                    Well RARE made the game but Nintendo owns the rights to the Donkey Kong characters so I think that's why it showed up. I believe if Activision chose to release Goldeneye 007 on the VC it could be done... but then again they're currently rewriting copyright laws and shit because of the VC. Who knows what'll end up happening?

                    If all else fails I wouldn't be too surprised if Microsoft didn't choose to release Goldeneye and Perfect Dark themselves on the VC. Gates is no joke about makesing the moniez

                      I need to pick up a Wii, but keep blowing my money on music and concert tickets, which are far more memorable than any console.

                      And I believe it was said that 007 would not be coming to the VC due to licensing issues.

                        does it really matter if it didnt come to the Wii, i mean its on the N64 and considering there cheap as hell then if people want to play them just buy the console. Or use a emulator, thats what i do atm

                          The last that was said is Reggies working on it.
