"We called it"- Mega Man and Castlevania to hit Wii

I'm never usually one to brag. But let's say we made some guesses at the beginning of the month, and maybe even talked about some games that should see the light of day for the Wii back in April. Could we do a bit of gloating if some of these ideas came to life?

Personally, I'd love to take on Simon while hearing the best version of 'Simon's Theme' I've ever heard.

If you like Castlevania, and never heard this stuff before, here's a little youtube preview I found, here's their rendition of 'Bloody Tears'
