Virtual Console games out?
Developers haven't kept their Virtual Console games a secret for the most part, but we still haven't been told which VC games will launch with the Wii. Until now, at least. The ESRB Website lists several Sega games which are most likely classics being ported to VC: Altered Beast, Ristar, Golden Axe, Ecco the Dolphin, and Toe Jam & Earl. A Sonic game is on the list as well. That could be the modern Sonic and the Secret Rings, but it should be noted that ESRB ratings are usually issued a scant two or three months before release (if that), and Secret Rings is scheduled for Q2 2007. The same timeframe suggests that the other games are the originals too, rather than unannounced remakes suddenly launching with the Wii.
