To Goldeneye, I'd say no: Nintendo would both have to resolve issues with Rare (who made the game, and are now owned by Microsoft) and EA (who now hold the rights to releasing James Bond games).

And Duck Hunt is a natural fit for the Wii controller - Nintendo would have to be insane not to port that over.

Nope, nope, nope... and nope.

So far, these titles have been officially released/announced:



NES Games (500 Wii Points)
! Mario Bros.: Mario and Luigi punch turtles.
! The Legend of Zelda: The original Hyrulean adventure.
! Donkey Kong: The game that put Nintendo on the map.
* Donkey Kong Jr.: Not quite a classic, but its cameo in Yoshi's Island DS is pretty boss.
* Ice Hockey: Fat guy, normal guy and skinny guy hit the ice.
! Pinball: Mario moonlights as a paddle in this one.
! Soccer: Another early NES sports title. About soccer!
* Tennis: Simple but effective volley action.
* Urban Champion: An early, and not particularly good, brawler.
! Wario's Woods: A falling-block puzzle game starring Wario.
* Baseball: Yet another early NES sports game.
! Solomon's Key: A surprisingly difficult puzzle-action game.

SNES Games (800 Wii Points)
! F-Zero: A futuristic racer that reinvented the genre.
! SimCity: Make your city awesome and you'll get a statue of Mario!

N64 Games (1000 Wii Points)
! Super Mario 64: The template for 3D platform gaming.

Genesis Games (800 Wii Points)
! Sonic the Hedgehog: Spiky guy, attitude, goes fast. You know this one.
! Altered Beast: This bestial brawler will make you wise fwom your gwave!
* Golden Axe: One of the best multiplayer brawlers ever made.
* Columns: Before Bejeweled, there was Columns.
* Ecco the Dolphin: Save the ocean in this beautiful (but difficult) adventure.
* Gunstar Heroes: The action/shooter/platformer/brawler that made Treasure a hardcore fave.
* Space Harrier II: A fast-paced shooter featuring super-scaler action!
* Toe Jam & Earl: A funky and oddly mellow adventure.
* Ristar: Sega's less popular 16-bit mascot.
* Dr. Robotnik's Mean Bean Machine: (Psst, it's actually Puyo Pop.)

TurboGrafx 16 Games (600 Wii Points)
! Bonk's Adventure: Carnivorous caveman antics.
* Super Star Soldier: Superlative space shooting.
* Victory Run: Slick racing action.
! Bomberman '93: Explosive multiplayer mayhem.
* Dungeon Explorer: Classic RPG combat.\\

! = Launched Title
* = Announced Title


Supposedly there will be new titles released every week. They're probably going to stagger a few good titles with some of the crap titles, to keep interest in the VC - assuming the system is going to have at least a 4-5 year lifespan, they're not going to release all the good titles immediately...

You may be right; then again, rights could just mean more people will want their cut if it is released (resulting in a higher point cost). I suppose we'll see eventually.

Found an 'announcement', though not too sure about the reliability of the source.

Scroll over the Super Mario 64 bit in the lower right corner, then read the article.

Yay woo.

Lookin' forward to Golden Axe and Toe Jam and Earl there :)

(Also Dr. Robotnik's Mean Bean Machine, but I already have that on my Gamecube)

Damn, when I go home to pick up my Xmas pressies this year I'm picking up my Mega Drive!
Here is my signature. Make of it what you will.

Yes, but like a whiney 9 year old, I want them now! :P

Oh well. I'll wait on getting the Wii until the VC has all the old games I want.

Notice from context that it's just listing popular games on the '64, not specifically ones appearing on the Wii.

It'd be nice if there was an adaptor through which you could play old carts on the virtual console. It's damn irritating having old SNESes and '64s sitting round because you need them to play old games.

Sonic the Hedgehog >> Super Mario Brothers
Always has been, always will be.

Perfect Dark is a fun game. However, I would recommend disabling the remote mines in multiplayer. They are a little bit cheesy.

As much as I'm with you on that one, I have to change one thing:

There were no Sonic games after the Sega CD. Such abortions were never brought into the world. It didn't happen. Nothing you say will ever convince me otherwise.
