Nintendo's Christmas Presents
Posted by Anthony Dickens
New Virtual Console titles available on Christmas morning, no freebies though. Sadly.
Just in case you missed it the first time around, Nintendo will be unleashing Super Mario Bros. onto the Virtual Console from Christmas morning, what a treat!
The classic game will make Christmas morning extra special, just as it did more than two decades ago. Super Mario Bros. reigns as perhaps the best-known and most-played game on any video game system in history. More than 40.2 million copies of the game found their way into homes worldwide.
They'll be a handful of other games available on Christmas Day aswell:
Street Fighter® II: The World Warrior
Super NES®, 1-2 players, 800 Wii Points: This game revolutionized the fighting-game genre with characters that had unique fighting skills, speed, special moves and unique endings.
Super Castlevania® IV
Super NES, 1 player, 800 Wii Points: Simon Belmont uses his trusty whip to fight the powers of evil on his way to Dracula's Castle.
Toe Jam & Earl™
Sega Genesis, 1-2 players, 800 Wii Points: Two fun-loving aliens crash on Earth and must find 10 pieces of their spaceship so they can get back home to Planet Funkotron.
TurboGrafx16, 1-2 players, 800 Wii Points: This is a completely faithful port - right down to the character details - of the famous shooting-game masterpiece.
Now then, how do I get to that darn warp pipe?
