Wii system update actually worth installing

by Cory Birdsong on


hat blinking light on the front of your Wii is actually worth paying attention to this time – you can finally run games off your SD card, and now that SD card can be up to 32 GB!

Holy shit! Joystiq has a snazzy video and a full image gallery here. Join me, fellow Nintendorks, in being extremely excited about a feature that should’ve launched with the system in the first place.

In other fancy Wii download-related news, the VC now has an arcade section, which will launch with the following games I have never heard of:

Gaplus (Namco Bandai): 600 Wii Points — available now

Mappy (Namco Bandai): 500 Wii Points — available now

The Tower Of Druaga (Namco Bandai): 500 Wii Points — available now

Starforce (Tecmo): 500 Wii Points — available now

Space Harrier (Sega) — coming soon

Solvalou (Namco Bandai) — coming soon

Additionally, Final Fantasy games will be coming to the VC, and apparently a sequel to Final Fantasy IV called, oddly enough, Final Fantasy IV: The After Years on WiiWare. Also coming to WiiWare is a sequel to Final Fantasy: My Life as a King called My Life as a Darklord, which sounds like a hilarious villian version of the game.
