Unfortunately, this bit of news comes from a fairly unreliable source. Until we see official numbers from Nintendo or a more reliable source, I’d consider this a rumor for the time being.

Recently, Ben Judd of Capcom sat down for an interview with IGN. Since the interview was mostly focused on Bionic Commando, a topic brought up during the Q&A was Bionic Commando on the Virtual Console. Judd responded by saying “that also couldn’t happen…If it’s not on the Virtual Console, you can bet there’s a reason for it.” Judd was taciturn in providing a firm reason as to why Bionic Commando won’t be hitting the VC anytime soon, but further investigation shows that only Nintendo seems to be blocking any chance of the original game going live.

Not all too surprising considering the ordeal Nintendo apparently had over GoldenEye. I suppose that once a developer releases an original Nintendo game on a competition’s system (in this case, Xbox Live), Nintendo doesn’t become too happy.

Earlier today, Famitsu hosted an award show for 2007. Unsurprisingly, Miyamoto took top honors in the “Most Valuable Person” category, most likely for the phenomenal success of Wii Fit, and cult classic hits such as Super Mario Galaxy. In addition, Nintendo in general won many awards with titles such as The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass and Mario Party DS.

Man, only one title? I suppose Nintendo’s preparing for WiiWare.

Retro revivals:

Sonic Unleashed
Tecmo Bowl: Kickoff for Wii/DS
Alone in the Dark
Tetris Wii
Alien Crush Wii
Bomberman Wii
Space Invaders Extreme

Rumors:

– Rock Band 2 with new modes
– New Castlevania for DS, Wii, and a 3D 360/PS3 game

Reviews:

Mario Kart Wii – B+, C+, C
Good: A few great new tracks and powerups
Bad: Dumbed-down gameplay, predictable design

Blast Works: Build, Trade, Destroy – A, A-, B-
Good: Rich level/object editor
Bad: That’s pretty much if after beating the campaign

Castle of Shikigami III – C+, C+, B-
Good: It’s a shoot-em-up on Wii
Bad: It’s too short and too tough

Myst – C-, D, D
Good: Some of the new tools help
Bad: though most of them are useless

Super Dodgeball Brawlers – C+, C, C+
Good: A content-rich remake, new special moves
Bad: Short on bells and whistles, outdated presentation

I know a lot of people would be more than pleased to see Castlevania on the Wii. The new game title (Castlevania Jugement) that was discovered not too long ago may give this rumor a bit of validity. All we can do is hope for the best and wait to see if Capcom has anything in store.

DS

Super Dodge Ball (E)

WiiWare

Magnetica Twist (E) – May be a Wii game
Family Ping Pong (E)
Pop (E)

If Magnetica on WiiWare is able to replicate the gameplay that can be found on the DS, I’m sure that this will be one title I’ll pick up on the Wii Shop Channel.
