Hello all Videa Game Regulars!
You know I have a thread here that I keep up-to-date with called the Wii Virtual Console thread. It's where I post all new releases to the Nintendo Wii Virtual Console. I also post information on future releases whenever I can get my hands on said information.
I normally wouldn't do something like this, but this future virtual console title I feel I must share with all of you.
Kirby Super Star
System: Super Nintendo Entertainment System
Genre: Action, Platformer
Cost: 800 Wii Points
It's actually a set of seven different games plus some minigames: Spring Breeze, Dynablade, Gourmet Race, and The Great Cave Offensive are available from the get-go, while Meta Knight's Revenge, Milky Way Wishes, The Arena and a set of minigames become available later. These are all typical Kirby platformers, each one with its own set of levels and different gameplay. In most of them you can consume monsters and learn their special abilities like in previous games, but in Milky Way Wishes, abilities are instead collected in a manner similar to Metroid. The Great Cave Offensive features one gigantic level with various obstacles, hidden treasures and some elementary lever-pulling kind of puzzle solving. Meta Knight's Revenge is the only game on the cartridge with a (fairly strict) timer. The Arena is a "boss rush" mode, asking players to defeat every boss in the game with limited health refills and on one life. Kirby Super Star is best known for its two-player cooperative play option, which has given it a reputation as a party game.
We did get a remake on the Nintendo DS, however some will probably want the original Super Nintendo version more... I know I would.
