GamePro has watched as Guitar Hero and Rock Band have debuted on the Wii, devoid of online features, hoping that Nintendo might grace the games with a few of its classic gaming tunes. That didn't happen. When Wii Music was announced, and Nintendo's finest butchered the Super Mario Bros Theme, we took solace in the fact that Nintendo was finally giving them a title filled to the brim with amazing old-school music.
Unfortunately, the list of Nintendo songs in the retail version of Wii Music ended up being quite paltry. Nintendo's entire 8- and 16-bit heyday is represented by a paltry three titles: Super Mario Bros. and Legend of Zelda theme songs, as well as the underrated F-Zero Mute City theme. Beyond that, there's two songs from Animal Crossing, and two from Wii properties--Wii Sports and Wii Music. If Nintendo ever sees fit to appease the hardcore and expand upon those seven songs, these six would be a great start.
