Super Star Wars Games Blast Onto Wii Console

Jay Cochran - August 11, 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.

So after Jet pack Duke gets the binoculars and bandolier, and Mr. Classified gets a shorter knife that actually fits the sheath on his leg, what should I do with the rest of Green-shirt Duke? The head is actually molded in flesh-tone, he has a nice pistol, great m-16, and the re-molded, fixed crotch for added sitting action. Where should the other spoils go?

I was originally kinda excited about this non-canonical "Original 14" version, since I've been a sucker for Sgt. Hauser since I first saw "The M.A.S.S. Device" and was too little to know that they don't let sgts fly jets! #US1# Do you think all the Joes have one of those generic things hanging in their locker, kind of like that OTHER blue and yellow costume, you know-- with the sleaves, that Wolverine sometimes wore in the old X-men comics? Maybe Life-line and Sci-Fi should have kept theirs...
