Something big is apparently headed to the Virtual Console, and Go Nintendo got hint of it first. Here’s what one of their readers transcribed and sent them from gaming mag GamesTM:
“Something big is coming to the Virtual Console, something that, for the past decade, certain corners of the retro community have been crying out for. I wish I could say more, but the uncertainties of publishing schedules prevents me from spilling the beans too early. Nevertheless, if what we’ve heard turns out to be true, the virtual console is about to become a lot more interesting and looks like it might turn out to be much more valuable to dedicated retro gamers than we first thought.”
Could this be the same Christmas surprise that was being hinted at earlier? I have my doubts, seeing as how that was (supposedly) related to the Wii Channels interface, and this is specifically to do with the Virtual Console. Maybe Nintendo finally managed to secure the rights to add Golden Eye to the list of VC titles? My guess is as good as yours.
As always, take this supposedly “legit” info with a pinch of salt.
