Along with telling us they are under way with the next Zelda game they announced this as well. The game still look gorgeous and it will look even better made for HD.

Much rather they remade golden eye for the wiiU and improved physics, but then again, I stopped caring about Nintendo since the cube era.

i see an odd pattern going on here, CES was amazing last year but E3 was rather disappointing, this year it seems to be the reverse. CES was rather lame and it's looking like we're gonna have a great E3 this year :)

Wow oh wow. Sadly I would gladly go buy a Wii U just to play this game. Damn you Nintendo!

OMG Wind Waker, only one of the best video games ever made, and the best looking!

Who says Nintendo just sell the same first party titles over-and-over again? Oh, wait.

It's smart. I'll buy them and no doubt love them, but I thought Ninty was looking to get more 3rd party titles on the Wii U. Have they spoken any more about that?

Haha, wind waker is the new OoT! OoT was released a total of 11 times last I counted, a right cash-cow for nintendo, wonder how many times this will get re-released.

Also, $8 for a SNES game!? Wow, does anyone actually pay that? Cheaper to buy a 2nd hand SNES and the cartridges.

As such, this is a definite buy for me.

Have to say, as a WiiU owner, was more than happy with everything announced for today. I have gone on the record about the fact the WiiU is not my primary console, so it is appearing to serve the exact purpose I purchased it for... To play some great 1st party Nintendo games.

The other thing I am incredibly psyched about, is the announcement of the Virtual Console, in particular the fact that games for the first 30 days will be 30 cents each. I will easily pick up 10 classic SNES games, and since it will only cost me $3 to do so, call me a happy camper.

I'm excited about Mario Kart, maybe the new Mario game (3D land was fun but I didn't like galaxy). I'm disappointed there's no new Mario Party game, playing Nintendo Land really made me want a Mario Party game for the WiiU

You haven't seen the SNES market lately have you? A system can go up to $200, and up to $1500 for a new boxed system...... games can go from tens of dollars to hundreds of dollars...back in early 2000 when SNES was considered an "old" system games went cheap, now its in the "retro" stage and games are worth a good bit now...

you sure? I thought only one title per month up till July are only $30 cents, not all of them? There was a list somewhere I can't find. This announcement was the only true suprise to me from Nintendo, everything else we knew was coming so it was like meh. There was no megaton OMG where did that come from announcement. It would be nice if they did an HD Zelda complilation of all of the Zeldas before Wii so that you could own all the Zelda's on one system.

The virtual console in its current version still upsets me to no end. Stop bs'ing around with it Nintendo and release all of your NES, SNES, N64, Gamecube, and gameboy games on the virtual console on day 1. Not just the 15 best or random titles total. Make the WiiU the ultimate Nintendo system.

You do realise they have to test the games with the gamepad right?

So because it was remade once all of a sudden it's a cash cow? You probably turned a blind eye to the droves of PS2 remakes I take it?

Also,

N64
GCN, twice
Wii
3DS

I'm counting 5 releases total; 7 if you include the bundled Master Quest versions for GCN and 3DS (although these weren't released seperately, they were bundled in the game itself, so you can't really claim it as a seperate re-release). A reasonable figure for any specific game, but 11 is WAY off the mark.

Unless of course you're including the incremental patches for the N64 version (J 1.0, J 1.1, US 1.0 Gold, US 1.0 Grey, US 1.1, US 1,2, EU 1.0, EU 1.1), in which case you're being ridiculous as these aren't re-releases and many, many games got re-shipped with incremental upgrades from the 6th gen and below as there was no online patching system available.

yep, so if you just want to play some of the games and aren't into collecting, you're better off just getting an emulator and some roms :) (as a side note, love using the snes emulator in my ds flash card)

Yeah got a newsletter from Nintendo earlier today and indeed I misunderstood. Just one title a month will be .30 cents apparently. Nowhere near as cool as I thought it was. Oh we'll.
