Super Nintendo Entertainment System classic Super Star Wars hits the Wii's Virtual Consol today for 800 points, kicking off a month of Star Wars releases and content for Nintendo's console.


Both Super Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back and Super Star Wars: Return of the Jedi are set to hit the virtual console in coming weeks for 800 Wii points each, Nintendo says.

The arrival of the three games will be accompanied by additional Star Wars-themed content for other Wii channels throughout the week. The Check Mii Out Channel will have a Star Wars character creation contest, while on the Everybody Votes Channel users can vote on Star Wars related questions.

"Our expanded partnership with LucasArts brings the Star Wars and Nintendo universes together," said Cammie Dunaway, Nintendo of America's executive vice president of Sales & Marketing. "These three Super Star Wars games represent fantastic additions to the growing Virtual Console library, and the exclusive Star Wars content on the other Wii Menu channels is sure to have people from different generations having fun and interacting with one another."

And this is just the beginning, with Nintendo saying that additional LucasArts games will be announced for the Virtual Console in the future.

"Virtual Console on Wii is a great way to make these games available to our fans again, and it's an awesome opportunity to expose our classic console titles to an entirely new audience," said Darrell Rodriguez, president of LucasArts.

I think I'll stick with my Emulators thank you, I'm not paying more for a SNES game than a Playstation game. I mean, why would I download Mario Kart 64 on Wii for £8 when I can get crash team racing for £3.50? Really wish Nintendo would make their VC prices a bit more reasonable.
