Saturo Iwata has announced that the Virtual Console will be expanded to arcade games as well as showing a new Zelda game.
Now with high quality teaser trailer footage.
well that was pretty underwhelming..
Where is the wii games :/
VC expanded to support arcade games...WTF do they think the NEO GEO is? I am betting there will be a MAME download to handle all pre 2000 arcade games. edit: Why has there been no mention of wii fw 4.0 with SDHC support? I dont see it anywhere on N4G.
nintendo is milking the industry and im getting pretty annoyed bye it. no quality game for wii since supermario galaxy. Nintendo is only cashing in on old titles. ...
Agreed. I think Zelda fans have tired of the cartoon games that get increasingly childish. Would it be so hard to make one like Ocarina of Time on the Wii? Please, Nintendo?
jup would it be so hard to get any good game on the wii please ? what happend to the n64 days, nintendo was stuffed with ip's
Ghoul what good N64 games? I was a lot of golden eye back in the days. In fact you've already gotten that line up if you would only look at what is out.
My god, they have totally lost it.
Indeed, I'm still searching for a good reason to buy a Wii. By this I mean that I really want to see a new Zelda on that platform.
I was hoping a new Zelda game would be announced but it looks like another casual game but I could be wrong. edit it looks like the usual zelda game with a new machanic like the boat in Phantom Hourglass.
I had the same concern, hoping it is more like Phantom Hourglass and not a game based on driving a train.
SpoonyRedMage this is the developer conference. It is not suppose to be about ego crushing titles like a new F zero or zelda. This is nintendo's chance to show they are willing to put your crazy ideas to use on their system. Every thing announced was an effort to get developer to make games on their system. The Sd card was a big boost and I'm sure my friend with Wii ware games are going to rest a lot easier tonight since more people will buy their games now. I think too much is up in the air right now also. The Wii does not have the luxury of just showing some trailers. I'm not sure if nintendo has an engine to compete with capcom, square and HVS's offering yet. The square guys are fully on board now. The next group will be rock star. The arcade move will bring more big names out also. From a gamers prospective it's not much but lots of stuff is brewing, you guys should really be here the developers have made a 180 on the Wii. At least the bashing is not as bad.
I honestly expected something for the Wii.So much success and profit and yet so little risk in handing us a bone.A new Zelda,Mario,F-Zero,Star Fox...anything! Not even any info on Pikmin 3
Remember the debacle that was the Nintendo E3 press conference, Nintendo apologize for the lackluster display and said that the core titles are in development and that they will show them at a different show. What show is that?
That was the separate Nintendo conference in October 2008,I believe.Even then Nintendo did not show a new Zelda,Mario,F-Zero. They did not even attend Leipzig and the Tokyo Game Show
A bit disappointed,but I suppose anything is better than nothing.
urgh... not a single new disc Wii game announced Nintendo officially blows.. i was expecting at least SOMETHING, even just a Star Fox... anything!
I know, a new Star Fox or Zelda game that took advantage of the Wii's set up would have been nice. Everyone always points at Sony for stumbling with their launch. But today paints a different picture with the other two consoles.
Sony tries hard and takes many risks, Nintendo look like they don't want to rock the boat. Saying that, this is only GDC, I wasn't expecting anything here. I mean, if they gave nothing in e3, they damn sure aren't giving anything here.
The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks and people... they still have time to show stuff... GDC is not over.
This is GDC, we were lucky to get what we did, you big babies.
erm... everyone and his dog were hyping the Nintendo keynote.. claiming big new Wii games were going to be announced guess that went down the sh!tter @qface last time Nintendo were at GDC... they announced the Wii, so yeah... GDC is also about announcements MS announced Gears 2, while Sony announced Home and LBP at GDC
That's true, people are too thirsty for new information (either for personl or fanboy purposes) they expect big announcements at a games developers conference.
yeah im with you why some people are complaining i don't know its GDC not E3 since when did they say they were even gonna show anything at all heck since when was GDC even about reveals? the wii sd card thing is enough for me nintendo never once teased or said they had announcements for the GDC it was all just certain people hyping things up just because iwata wold be speaking
Another big let down to the 50 million Wii owners. More VC? woo-effin-hoo. Sure I'll happily play another DS Zelda but the DS HAS the good games whereas the Wii doesn't right now and it needed the love way more than it's little bro. I really, really expected something better this time. Maybe there actually is nothing good coming to the Wii that we don't know about. Still, there's always E3.
"There are rumours that Iwata-san is to announce a stable of new Wii titles, and with film crews being told not to film past the first five minutes of his keynote, he must surely have something big to announce. " Good thing they stopped those cameras.
Anyone could have predicted this...in fact everyone did predict this. what else is new. :/
Nintendo GDC and E3 are bound to be a failure. My god, lets hope Nintendos E3 is better then last years. Remember how Nintendos E3 08 made you feel. Just remember. I shed a few tears when I watched it :(
Phantom Hourglass is good, as well as the older portable Zelda games, what's everyones problem? I hope they're saving Wii announcements for E3. Although there's Punch Out on the way. The announcement for the SD card channel's a really good thing as well I think. I don't think the news is bad at all, could have been better though.
moving on. Zzzzzz......
this is why i don't play my wii
hopefully its like a snes style zelda, that would be effing awesome. I always thought it would be really cool if nintendo made a super mario world style game for wii ware. I really hope this is a good in depth game and not something extremely simple and straight foward.
Hmm yes i think many devoted long term fans would just be happy with an Fzero, Starfox, Pilotwings as i know i would.I just don't get why the likes of Pilotwings hasn't even been given a mention - such a great game deserving of another sequel At least Pikmin3 has already been confirmed? Nintendo are brilliant and i'm all for new stuff from them but a couple these games mentioned would be all that's needed to keep us long time Nintendo fans happy - just a couple
