Welcome to the Wii Shop Channel Thread, where we'll discuss and keep you updated on Nintendo's digital releases on the Wii Shop Channel, which includes Virtual Console & Wiiware titles, as well as the DSi Shop.

NEWS:THE FORCE IS STRONG WITH THIS ONE: STAR WARS CONTENT BLASTS ONTO WII CONSOLE
Multiple LucasArts Super Nintendo Games Head to Virtual Console

REDMOND, Wash., Aug. 10, 2009 - Fans of Star Wars® and classic Nintendo games will want to keep an eye on their Wii™ Shop Channel for the next month. Nintendo will be releasing multiple LucasArts favorites for Virtual Console™, starting today with Super Star Wars®. In the coming weeks, both Super Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back® and Super Star Wars: Return of the Jedi® will be added to the Virtual Console lineup. All three Super Star Wars games were originally released for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System™ and will be available at 800 Wii Points™ each.

The arrival of the first three games will be accompanied by additional Star Wars-themed content on other Wii channels throughout the week. The Check Mii Out Channel will invite people to submit their best Mii™ character renditions of classic Star Wars characters. On the Everybody Votes Channel, users can cast their votes to help settle old debates, such as the proper order to watch the six Star Wars films, and who fired first - Han Solo or Greedo?

"Our expanded partnership with LucasArts brings the Star Wars and Nintendo universes together," said Cammie Dunaway, Nintendo of America's executive vice president of Sales & Marketing. "These three Super Star Wars games represent fantastic additions to the growing Virtual Console library, and the exclusive Star Wars content on the other Wii Menu channels is sure to have people from different generations having fun and interacting with one another."

"Virtual Console on Wii is a great way to make these games available to our fans again, and it's an awesome opportunity to expose our classic console titles to an entirely new audience," said Darrell Rodriguez, president of LucasArts.

Additional classic LucasArts games for Virtual Console will be announced in the future.

    You know, for a moment I thought you were rating this week's content: 8/10, solid but could use improvement. :)

    Anyway, echoing my request for any hands-on impressions of NyxQuest/Icarian from any EU folk that grabbed it when it went live some time ago. I saw the NintendoLife review and it looks solid, but I'm just curious for more input.

    I'm getting so torn on wii-ware (and Xbox arcade for that matter). I've played some gems I've loved (Lost Winds, World of Goo) but I've also fallen to temptation and got things that turned out to be not up my alley and the utter inability to recoup any cost by selling them on when I make a mistake is making me very cautious over new purchases.

    I guess I'm saying I just wish WiiWare did demos so I could at least try out things that are a little more of a risky investment.

    I'd prefer demos, but I understand why we're not getting them. The games are smallish, and they might be concerned that people would play the demos instead of the games. I know I would. There's always videos.

    The Wii Shop is so interesting now. It's giving me the kinds of experiences that I bought a Wii for. That and the DS have become my favorite platforms.

    Yeah, this is the major reason why I spend a lot more on XBLA titles than WiiWare. The XBLA policy of requiring demos for everything is excellent and I wish Nintendo would implement it (though I suppose I never was too surprised when it turned out to not be the case) because there isn't any acceptable excuse not to.

    So somebody asked for some impressions on Nyxquest in the last thread, so here's what I posted some time ago:
    It's a pretty good game. The story is, well, not there, but it's just a crazy fun action platformer, and actually pretty hard too. After some playing you start to feel seriously ambidextrous, because you need to use your god powers and control your character at the same time pretty intensely. Also, it's a pretty damn pretty game, though the graphics are not very varied, the gameplay is. You'll be duking it out with snake monsters the one moment and sneaking around all seeing eyes later. Good fun!

    I bought Bit.Trip Beat recently. It's a nice game, but holy shit is it hard. You need 500k points just to get the bottom space on the high score list and the combo system means that if you screw up just a bit, it gets very hard to get that many points.

    I've managed to get over 800k once, but I didn't get enough to make the high score list when I actually beat the first level.

    There have been some Lost Winds comparisons, which I haven't played. Any thoughts if you have, and if you prefer one game over the other? They both seem similar; 2.5-D puzzle-platformers, pretty short full runthrough, inventive Wiimote usage.

    I can maybe understand tech limitations, and I can certainly understand Nintendo's online setup not being conducive to demos. But if a developer genuinely feels that way from a design standpoint, then their game is probably too small or shallow to be worth a purchase in the first place. I check out XBLA and iPhone demos all of the time, and even with one-trick pony 99-cent iPhone games that are under 10 MB, there are definitely ways to craft demos that still leave the player wanting more.

    Man... virtual console. I'm tired of your god damned teasing. Releasing one game a week when there are litterally hundreds of quallity games to put on that would appeal to me, not to mention thousands of others.

    By the way though, how is Super Star Wars holding up? I remember (vaguely) playing only Empire, but really liked it.

    I was highly enjoying MLaaDL for a while, but like all tower defence games (which this is most definately a version of) I grew tired of it a little too rapidly and slightly regret the purchase. If you are keen on tower defence however it's a nice spin on the genre.

    The control scheme and graphics are similar, but gameplay is vastly different. Nyxquest is way more actiony, and doesn't focus on exploration, with the game being entirely linear. There is still some exploration though. Throughout the levels, special relics are hidden around, and they really are difficult to find. A fun one that I remembered:
    You're in a room with really high walls, with an entrance to the lower left and an exit to the lower right. There's about ten blocks stacked against the exit. You obviously progress by moving the blocks blocking the exit, but if you make a giant tower where you can find one of these relics hidden up high. There's no way to know it's there besides trying though.

    Sometimes finding them requires a leap of faith, but usually exploring suspicious things pays off. These relics serve no purpose besides finding them though. If you liked Lost Winds, you'll probably like this as well, as for which is better is too hard to say. I will say that Lost Winds looks better, the art direction is more varied.

    If you get a high score without beating a level, just return to the Wii Menu screen without saving. That way you won't make it harder for yourself when you actually do complete a level. If you're still on level one and you've racked up a bunch of high scores, just delete your save file.

    Yea, it was the N64 game. I didn't have an N64, but a friend of mine did and I played the game through to the end at his house many years ago. It was flawed but very fun.

    Pretty sure SotE was released in December 1996, which would put it a few months after launch. But it was supposed to be a launch title initially, I believe.

    SotE was a weird marketing experience, anyway. There was a novel, and a soundtrack, a comic, action figures, video games, and even a "making of" book. All for a story that wasn't actually a real movie....I don't know if they've done anything quite like it since then...

    I remember being interested in the N64, but then saw that it came with no games, and it would cost me 70 bucks for Mario 64, and I decided not to buy it.

    Then later I ended up with a PS1. Then I skipped the Gamecube for the PS2. The Wii is the first system Nintendo talked me into buying since the SNES. I have alot of games I have bought from the N64 and GC era so that I can catch up with what they've done.

    Jetforce Gemini, DK 64 and Killer Instinct are Rare games. The Wii isn't likely to get them.

    DK64 Nintendo owns, just like they do all the DKC games, and since DKC 1,2, and 3 are on the system, I'm sure we'll get DK64 at some point.

    Personally Shadows of the Empire I want, as well as Mischief Makers, Body Harvest, and Mega Man 64.

    Man I am totally getting NyxQuest; it'll just have to wait until next week since I'm out of town and without a Wii... I think it looks awesome. Also, re: length of the game - well, it's only $10, and I've read 4 hours long. I think that's a reasonable price for a 4 hour game that's unique, beautiful, and fun. Especially since it uses the Wii interface so well.

    Especially considering many people buy retail games at 60 bucks that have somewhere between 4-8 hours of gameplay.

    I would say that 4 hours for ten bucks is a good deal.

    DK64 Nintendo owns, just like they do all the DKC games, and since DKC 1,2, and 3 are on the system, I'm sure we'll get DK64 at some point.

    Personally Shadows of the Empire I want, as well as Mischief Makers, Body Harvest, and Mega Man 64.

    I would kill to get Space Station Silicon Valley on the VC, hopefully with the one trophy fixed that you couldn't get in the N64 version.

    Especially considering many people buy retail games at 60 bucks that have somewhere between 4-8 hours of gameplay.

    I would say that 4 hours for ten bucks is a good deal.

    Personally, I'm glad to have the occasional option for a game that is 2 to 6 hours long for a lesser price, because, honestly, I'm a busy person and sometimes I like to have a game that I can finish in a week. I really don't want all of the games I play to be 20+ hours. It gets tiring. Sometimes I just want to start a game, enjoy it, and finish it within a few days or a week.

    Me too, it's why I seem to buy many more games on WiiWare/VC and XBLA than retail games. They are easier to pick up for twenty minutes at a time and drop them when you have to go. I have two kids, I don't have the time I used to to sit in front of the game for hours on end.

    Ahhh Rouge Squadron games would be sweet to get on the VC. It can do games that used that expansion thingy right?
