It’s only fair that after the Commodore 64 debuted on the European Wii Virtual Console last Friday, that today America sees the debut of the Sega Master System emulating Wonder Boy on the Wii. We’ve included videos of each of today’s games for nostalgia’s sake or so you can see if it’s for you.

This week’s new games are:

Wonder Boy on Sega Master SystemWonder Boy (Sega Master System, 1-2 players, Rated E for Everyone — Comic Mischief, 500 Wii Points = $5): As Tom-Tom the Wonder Boy, it’s up to you to rescue your girlfriend Tanya from the vile clutches of the monster that has kidnapped her.

Whether it’s the rolling hills of Appalachia, the flowing cornfields of Iowa or the crowded tunnels below Chicago, you’ll find yourself too focused on the intense racing action to worry about the scenery. Get started by picking from a garage full of cars to find the one that best suits your style—if you’re good enough, you’ll even find a few hidden ones to round out your selection. Then choose one of three different playing perspectives and get ready to hang on tight. With five difficulty levels, the ability to remove traffic or other racers, and two- player simultaneous racing, it’s enough to make you forget all about finding that next rest stop. Just watch out for the cows, OK?

Commodore 64 joins the Wii Virtual Console lineup

Commodore 64 home computer
It was revealed today that Commodore 64 home computer games will be offered on the European Wii Virtual Console soon in 2008, with other territories no doubt to follow. Games will each be priced at 500 Wii Points (that’s €5 / £3.75) on the Shop Channel and the first classic 8-bit games set to appear are: International Karate and Uridium.

The Commodore 64 was originally released back in 1982 and went on to become the best-selling home computer of all-time, with 22 million units sold worldwide (I said computer, not console). Hugely popular across Europe and the United States, the C64 built up a huge line-up of software, with over 4,000 titles produced during its production lifetime (1982-1994).

Bala Keilman, CEO of Commodore Gaming: “The massive impact the Commodore 64 had on video-gaming is still evident today with many gamers remembering the computer and its games with great fondness. By working with Nintendo of Europe, we are ensuring that future generations of gamers can play some of the best and most popular titles that kick-started the computer games revolution and so keep the C64 legacy in gamers hearts.”

Laurent Fischer, Managing Director of European Marketing & PR of Nintendo Europe: “We are extremely pleased to be working with Commodore Gaming to provide even more retro hits for Wii owners to choose from on Virtual Console. With over 184 classic titles now available to enjoy, Virtual Console on Wii is a great way for users to access a breadth of classic retro games. We hope that this great choice of games will bring nostalgia to our gaming fans, while an entirely new generation of video game players can experience a host of classic games for the very first time.” — Via VCreviews, from Nintendo.fi

If you’re a retro gamer, the Nintendo Wii seems to be a safe haven this generation. Remember, no less than a month ago the Sega Master System joined the Wii Virtual Console lineup of loads of other classic systems like the NES (Famicom), TurboGrafx-16 (PC Engine), Sega Genesis (Mega Drive), SNES (Super Famicom), N64, NEOGEO (and MSX & PC).

Sega Master System console
In Nintendo Wii’s Virtual Console download service, you can get classics from the NES (Famicom), TurboGrafx-16 (PC Engine), Sega Genesis (Mega Drive), SNES (Super Famicom), Nintendo 64, and NEOGEO.

It was revealed today that Sega Master System games will be offered on the Japanese Virtual Console starting in February 2008, with other territories to follow. The first 8-bit games are Fantasy Zone (for 500 Wii Points) and Fist of the North Star (for 600 Wii Points; 100 more because of licenses).

Because 1986 Sega Master System uses identical hardware to 1990’s Game Gear and 1985’s Sega Mark III, games from that handheld and console could make it to the Wii Virtual Console as well!

Nintendo of Japan has shown in the past that the MSX games will be joining that list sometime with Eggy and Aleste (from D4 Enterprise). And the American PC games Jewel Quest II and Sproink (from iWin/21 Rocks) were listed for the service as well, although they might end up on the upcoming (in March 2008) WiiWare game download service, instead of through PC emulation on the Virtual Console. — Via Nintendowiifanboy
