Star Wars Games Head To Nintendo Wii's Virtual Console


Posted August 10, 2009 - By Stephen Johnson

Super Empire Strikes Back

Star Wars and Nintendo have a lot in common -- both are lovable, but often dismissed as "childish" by some members of their would-be fan bases. Over the next month, Star Wars and Nintendo will smash together in a planet-size explosion of gaming awesomeness, though. 

Today, Super Star Wars, that Super Nintendo standby, is available for download, and 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.

Old games never die; they're just eventually reborn as downloadable content. But the question is: Is Nintendo and the other game companies making the right choices with the games they revive? These Star Wars titles were, like most movie tie-in games, not particularly great. The main selling point (if I remember correctly) were the graphics, and obviously that doesn't matter any more. Play-wise, I remember these games as being frustratingly difficult and not all that fun...except the third one, which was pretty good.

What old game would you like to see make a comeback?
