Classic Star Wars games coming to Wii

Got a quickie for you*:

“Fans of Star Wars® and classic Nintendo games will want to keep an eye on their Wii™ Shop Channel for the next month. Nintendo will be releasing multiple LucasArts favorites for Virtual Console™, starting today with Super Star Wars®. In the coming weeks, both Super Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back® and Super Star Wars: Return of the Jedi® will be added to the Virtual Console lineup. All three Super Star Wars games were originally released for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System™ and will be available at 800 Wii Points™ each.”

A lot of people spent a lot of time playing these games on the SNES, so this is a bit of a boon for fans of old-school gaming and Star Wars.

One thing to remember, though, is that this predates the special editions, so don’t be surprised when Han shoots first, Jabba shows up redundantly in the first game, and… and… a whole bunch of other stuff that I’m so enraged about I can’t even put it into words.

*Yes, yes, that is, indeed, what she said. Smart arse.
