Square Enix's first VC game

Square Enix's first VC game

Square Enix have announced they will start bringing games to the Wii's Virtual Console.

The first title will be ActRaiser, it hits the Japanese VC next month. It's an action adventure game, originally published by Enix in 1990. I'm not familiar with it, but by all accounts it's a good'n.

I was expecting an RPG, but that will probably be later on. Enix made some unique RPGs for SNES but they never got the fame they deserved.

It looks like Fire Emblem for the game boy advance.

It's about time Square Enix tossed their hats into the ring. I'm ready to play games like Final Fantasy and Star Ocean all over again!

Well it seems publishers have finally stopped underestimating the Virtual Console and aren't being total assholes to Nintendo. Way to go, guys.

Why can't there be more N64 Games. All there is are Mario Kart and Super Mario.

I totally agree with you Wii freak. Bring back mario kart or maybe even dk, that probably was the best n64 game ever. Since they aren't making a new platformer dk bring back the old one on vc.

N64 games are larger and more advanced so it's harder to transfer them. Or something like that.
