The Wii VC will shutdown on January 31, 2019.
I’m a huge fan of the Wii VC. 240P support and rather excellent emulation across many platforms, from Master System to Arcade. I do hear issues with the TG16/PC Engine emulation, but that’s apparently due to 480i/p resolution instead of supporting 240p. If someone can correct me on this.
The libraries aren’t that fleshed out, but you can find some excellent titles not found anywhere else legally. Titles like Ogre Battle/64, DoReMi Fantasy, Ufouria, Pulseman, and for now, the only place to get the original SNES version of Chrono Trigger, outside a very expensive cart purchase.
The prices can seem steep for ROMs sure, but it’s legal and compare them to carts and it can be a great way save money. Moreover, you can easily softmod your Wii to back up your “investment”.
We have a little more than a year to pick up titles, but like anything online related, it would make sense to not wait until the last month to get your must-have titles. I’m sure it will die in that last month due to the traffic.
What are you some of your favorite titles of this great service?
MOD ABUSE: PLEASE NOTE THE SERVICE SHUTS DOWN IN JANUARY 2019, BUT YOU CAN ONLY ADD FUNDS TO PURCHASE GAMES UNTIL MARCH 26, 2018.
