Nintendo Wii Virtual Console gets new titles

April 22nd, 2008 by Edwin in Games – New Releases, Retro Games


Nintendo’s Wii console is not only fun with the slew of current generation games, it also brings back fond memories of old thanks to the inclusion of Virtual Console capability. This has made it possible for us to re-enact our happy childhood memories where 8-bit graphics and a ton of imagination were more than enough to keep us glued in front of the TV for hours on end, until our parents threaten to throw us out of the house just to get some sunshine (serves them right for purchasing a Nintendo/Sega Master System in the first place, eh?). I’m happy to announce that the Virtual Console will be receiving new titles courtesy of Interplay Entertainment Corp., where four franchise titles that hail from the Sega Genesis system will soon be made available.

The happy quartet are Earthworm Jim, Earthworm Jim 2, Boogerman, and Clayfighter, and all of them are extremely popular during the 1990s on the Sega Genesis. I personally love the Earthworm Jim series, as he was the cutest of the bunch and had all the necessary qualities to make a great adventure platformer, but alas, he didn’t really make it to the A-list no thanks to Mario’s dominance.

No idea on how much each of these titles will cost, but it sure as heck beats taking out that old Genesis and blowing into its cartridge slot, hoping that a little bit of moisture and dust clearance will get your old Earthworm Jim cart up and running again. Considering the rate of inflation factored in, a Virtual Console title is really worth your dollars.
