The site PlayNintendo has up a list of possible launch titles for the Wii Virtual Console
. Nothing on the list is particularly surprising, with classics like Sonic
, various Mario
, and Castlevania
filling out the roster. The article author goes on to discuss his source for the information
, sharing additional tidbits he's learned. "I have received info from them before that has turned out true, including a tip back before E3 that Wii could ship as early as September with 20 titles. With the fact that Broadway has been in Nintendo's hands for some time, the console could, in fact, ship late September. However, they also stated that October is much more likely and if Nintendo did decide to wait, there would be more like 30 titles for launch. With the launch list continuously growing, that one has all but been confirmed as true too."
With Nintendo's big announcement due later this week, we shouldn't have long to wait before this is confirmed or disproven.
