Nintendo Wii

November 9, 2006

I wrote about it a while ago, but the Nintendo Wii is hitting the shelves soon and I’m really looking forward to getting my hands on one. Not only do the actual Wii games look like great fun, but the list of old favorites you can buy from the online Virtual Console service just keeps on looking better.

Nintendo have just announced that The Legend of Zelda: The Ocarina of Time (probably the best video game ever made) will be available for approximately $15 AUD, along with other favorites like Sonic The Hedgehog and ToeJam and Earl from the MegaDrive, Gradius from the NES, Super Metroid from the SNES, Lylat Wars from the Nintendo 64, and many more. Of course, not all of these games have been confirmed for Australia, but Nintendo wouldn’t hold out on me like that … would they?

It will also be interesting to see if they release the TurboGrafx-16 titles in Australia. The TurboGrafx-16 console never saw the light of day in Australia (probably due to the fact that it never really took off in Europe where it competed with the MegaDrive), but from what I understand the games are quite good.
