At their October media summit, Nintendo announced plans to release Wii ports of some GameCube games as the Wii de Asobu
(Play on Wii) series. Today, we found solid evidence
of a North American release
. While GameCube games are, of course, currently playable on Wii, these new ports will enable motion and pointer-based control schemes, allowing new players to use the "simpler" Wii controls, and existing fans to play favorites in a new way. At least, that's the idea, we think.
But is it a good idea to port these games and try to sell them again? Is it good for the fans? For the games? For the Wii? For the win? We say yes! And also no. That's kind of how debating works!
