Sweet. I was right. Finally. Although it would've been nice if Impossible Mission came along with it.

So Boulder Dash is coming for VC today? I haven't seen any announcements yet and they usually announce it by now on this site. I wonder what's the hold up?

@Don:

This week's downloadable game releases include a spellbinding new installment in the FINAL FANTASY® series. This first true sequel to FINAL FANTASY IV is sure to get RPG fans' blood pumping. Nintendo DSiWare™ users will find a challenging new puzzle game to help keep their minds spinning. A slick new poker title from the WiiWare™ service raises the stakes for virtual card sharps, while the Virtual Console™ debut of a classic Commodore 64 game puts players in pursuit of precious gems. With so much variety on the Wii™ Shop Channel and Nintendo DSi Shop™, your odds of having a humdrum summer are getting slimmer by the hour.

The touch screen reflects a preview of the next chamber and shows Alta's projected destination within it. When it's time to flip, use Alta's Magical Warp Wand to replace her world with the next one. Will she land safely on solid ground or be crushed under it? By cycling endlessly through room after brain-busting room, you'll match wits with some of the most devious traps in puzzle/platforming history.

Now, monsters are reappearing in a world that had finally attained peace. The second moon has returned anew. What tidings does this ominous harbinger bring? Familiar faces and new allies join the battle to save the Blue Planet once more.

Boulder Dash®
Original platform: Commodore 64

Players: 1-2
ESRB Rating: E (Everyone)
Price: 500 Wii Points
Description: Originally released in 1984, Boulder Dash is one of the big computer-game classics. It is one of the very few computer games ever to be ported from home computers to arcades, not the other way around. The hero of the game is the brave prospector Rockford. He must dig through caves to collect diamonds while avoiding various types of dangerous creatures and obstacles such as falling rocks. He is in constant danger of being crushed or trapped by an avalanche or killed by an underground explosion. Strategy and planning are the keys to mastering Boulder Dash. Once enough jewels have been collected, the door to the mysterious escape tunnel is revealed and Rockford can explore another cave.

Notice Nintendo has a new approach to the updates.

I thought FFIV was supposed to be multiplayer? Also, it looks like it's all in one package, which is quite nice, unless they're going to surprise us with the other episodes...?

Also, you say "Notice Nintendo has a new approach to the updates." What do you mean?

Come on, friends,

The thing is, it's not bad, but it's not very good. A lot of us wanted to get FFIV before we got the flipping sequel, and that's probably the title with the most appeal to anyone here.

Personally, I don't mind too much, since I have a tremendous backlog which will probably consist of three other Final Fantasy games (FF7 is at the end of it now, and I expect FF6 and FF9 to be released on VC/PSN respectively, and I will play those before 4, which I will play before After Years) before I ever get around to this. But for someone who is starved for games, it's not hard to see how it is disappointing.

Disappointing? Mighty Flip Champs is finally out. Perfect answer to DSi-owners who are "starved for games". I don't even have a DSi and I'm quite pleased with this update. Sure it could've been better but come on.

@Aquateen: Why would you expect that? You were just setting up yourself to be disappointed. I really want it too but come on, even I have more sense than that.

No delay. The games come out in less than 2 hours. See above for the update.

@Aquateen: No worries. Just understand that I feel your pain and as much as I'd love to see it in the next update, to STRONGLY hope that it will appear would be rather premature especially given how unpredictable VC releases are nowadays. Let's hope we don't have to wait till #350 to see it though... Cause then I'd start worrying that I won't see Mario Party till #400.
