There's a lovely selection of retro gaming available on the Japanese Virtual Console today, including Ogre Battle
and one of Falcom's myriad Dragon Slayer
games, but the real
retro hotness is found on WiiWare. Lucky Japanese Wii owners will get to play Bubble Bobble Wii
, and we certainly hope it isn't terrible. The last Bubble Bobble
on Nintendo hardware wasn't so great, but that was back when Taito was licensing its properties out to whomever. We also hope Okiraku Slot Car Racing
isn't terrible, if only because a game about slot car racing sounds kind of hilarious. After Family Glide Hockey,
we're not holding out too much hope.
