    I want Gumshoe! I want Gumshoe!!!
    Gumshoe was my favorite Zapper game. Looks like they added all the other Zapper titles...now gimme my Gumshoe! :D

    I don't see a "Mike Tyson's" in front of Punch Out, so I'm assuming it's the rerelease with Mr. Dream (or whatever his name was), the "white palette swap just-as-cheap as Tyson" guy.

    Kid Icarus - awesome.
    Pilot Wings will be awesome if you can use the Wiimote (doubtful).
    Pro Wrestling - can't wait to start bitin' heads with the Amazon guy again. :)

    edit - I just noticed Sky Blue posted this in the FAQ an hour ago. Ah well ;)

    Kid Icarus is one of my favorite games of all time. I'm glad that is being released. Pro Wrestling was great (Amazon and Starman were both fun to use). I'm disappointed that it will not be Mike Tyson's Punch Out (that removes some of the nostalgia of playing it).
    I too would love Gumshoe (possibly the best zapper game ever).

    I'm assuming Duck Hunt will utilize the WiiMote with it's point and shoot function

    Man that will be great!

    Kirby's Adventure was a GREAT game. I still own the original cartridge.

    Unfortunately, I no longer own a working NES.

    So basically you can, but they put out the old nutshell it ruins your warranty. mmm

    Nintendo really hate european importers dont they.

    Either way the it looks like I will be able to connect the wii to the internet but will need American Wii points. Hopefully these are able to buy at retail stores like marketplace points and therefore I'd at least be able to get them off ebay..

    I dont care about warranty crap.

    In fact I wonder if the PAL virtual console games will be the same as the SNES/NES/N64, that is they suffer the big black borders top and bottom and 17.5% slower than the NTSC version. If so more reason to get American.

    I think importing a console from another reason is very risky. You never know if they will block by IP or only let you buy points from a US card, as you say. Best to let someone else try first.

    Nice game list. They are only doing 10 a month though,or is it 10 minimum with Sega and Hudson, it could be a while till we see all those.

    I want to know if SE are going to bring the NES/SNES FF games to VC.

    What was that Kirby golf game called? Kirby's Dream Course? That was awesome :)

    since the VC was announced I've been pining for Super Metroid. I really can't wait for these. The only thing that's really pulling me in is Wii Play and TP for launch titles, I'll probably quadruple that with VC titles :D

    Super Metroid <drools>
    This could quite possibly be my favorite game of all time. This is great news!

    Now only if they got Chrono Trigger on board....
