The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask Coming to Virtual Console (in Japan)

It must be so nice to live in Japan: Sushi everywhere you turn, game shops that are like enormous caches of entertainment antiquities, and games like Captain Rainbow and Disaster: Day of Crisis, without anyone batting an eye. And you know what else is great about Japan? They actually have some idea of what games are coming to their Virtual Console before they get released. And this month has yielded some most surprising additions indeed. Read More


Molyneux: 'Final Fantasy VII Defined the RPG Genre to Me'

Lionhead Studios Founder Peter Molyneux continues his ever-controversial line of thought, this time turning his attention to the legendary granddaddy of all RPGs (except the ones that came before it), Final Fantasy VII, a game he considers as the one which defined the RPG genre."I always remember back to Final Fantasy VII, when I first played FFVII, that to me defined the genre," he said when talking about the PS3 and if it has had any defining titles. "Those were the 'oh my god' moments, I don't believe they exist. I haven't seen many of those on the PS3." Before angry PS3 gamers send Mr. Molyneux angry emails, it's worth bearing in mind that, despite his company being owned by Microsoft, he owns all the major consoles. "This is very much me as a gamer talking, not as an industry spokesman," he told us. "I've got a PS3, a Wii and a 360, I've got just about everything." -- VideoGamer.comNot me, no sir. Super Mario RPG: The Legend of the Seven Stars is where I cut my teeth on that genre. Not to take anything away from FFVII or anything. Read More


Wii-kly Update: Super Mario RPG Finally Lands on the Virtual Console

Nintendo reaches a fairly notable milestone today by debuting its 250th Virtual Console release, and it's a biggie: SNES classic Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars. NES title Clu Clu Land and WiiWare aquarium simulator My Aquarium round out this weeks' releases. WiiWare My Aquarium (Hudson Entertainment, 1 player, Rated E for Everyone, 500 Wii Points): With swaying aquatic plants and fish idly swimming about, My Aquarium is a relaxing Wii experience that allows you to enjoy a virtual aquarium in your spare time. Whether freshwater or saltwater, you can select from over 40 popular types of fish, including favorites like the Ocellaris clownfish, the freshwater angelfish and the Asian arowana. You can also create up to six different aquariums and personalize them by adding decorations like seaweed and driftwood. In My Aquarium, you can send aquariums to your registered Wii Friends. The aquariums can even be set with special dates, such as a friend's birthday, that the fish will commemorate with a dance. Feed your fish and watch them steadily grow from fry to adult. Then, after meeting certain conditions, you can breed them. Another feature will allow you to interact with your fish using your Wii Remote controller in fun ways, like "tapping" the glass of your aquarium. Virtual Console Clu Clu Land (NES, 1-2 players, Rated E for Everyone, 500 Wii Points): Take a deep breath and prepare for a puzzle game set in the underwater kingdom of Clu Clu Land. The greedy Sea Urchins have stolen all of Clu Clu Land's gold bars and buried them in a series of mazes. As Bubbles, a brave bubble fish, you'll set out to uncover all of the gold bars in each maze. But you'll have to be careful: Sea Urchins will relentlessly pursue Bubbles, and there are also dangerous black holes that must be avoided. Bubbles isn't defenseless, though, as she has the ability to stun Sea Urchins with sound waves and quickly change direction using posts scattered throughout the stages. Not only that, but the locations of the gold bars in each maze form the outline of another object -- once you know the object, you're well on your way to finding the gold. With 20 stages to complete and increasingly complex conditions (like having to pass over the gold bars twice to uncover them), you might just want to bring along a friend for help. Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars (Super NES, 1 player, Rated E for Everyone, 800 Wii Points): Set in the Mushroom Kingdom and featuring its cast of well known characters, this adventure RPG begins with a familiar scenario: Mario must rescue Princess Toadstool from Bowser. However, a mysterious new enemy named Smithy soon appears, and Mario and Bowser are forced to fight as allies for the first time in their long history. In the quest to defeat their powerful new foe, they'll journey across a wide variety of locations (a town of mining moles, a tropical forest, a thundering waterfall -- just to name a few) and tackle a mix of obstacles requiring both expert timing and strategy to overcome. Along the way, they'll gain experience and grow more powerful, while also meeting new characters whose unique abilities will be needed to take on Smithy and his gang. Striking a perfect balance of traditional RPG elements and the action-packed game play Mario is famous for, it's easy to see why this title has earned "legendary" status. -- Nintendo Press Release I've always personally regarded Super Mario RPG as an excellent game, and facing off against the Axem Rangers (pictured) as one of the funnier moments in gaming. What about you guys, is anyone else interested in picking this up? Read More


Super Mario RPG Comes to Virtual Console

Good news, everyone! Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars is finally coming to the Virtual Console! Which means that Square Enix is apparently not as afraid of money as many had once thought. The bad news is, it's for Japan in June. But on the upside, that increases the likelyhood of us getting it here at some point. On the downside, I'm not familiar with Japan's VC pricing scheme, but it says the cost will be 900 Wii Points, 100 more than the typical Super NES title cost. Then again, I know there are those who would still gladly pay it. On the positive side, given how rare a Square Enix release on Virtual Console is, this is pretty good. On the negative side, deep down I had hoped that maybe they were holding back as they have been with Final Fantasy titles so that they might remake it in 3D on the Nintendo DS. Guess that dream has just been shattered like the Star Road. Oh well, the original is better than nothing! Read More
