Nintendo announces MSX and NeoGeo support on the virtual console.
Japanese Virtual Console lovers have quite a month ahead of them. The final Tuesday in February sees the release of the much-vaunted Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time and March doesn’t look so bad either, even in the shadow of Zelda. Fondly remembered games like Excitebike, ActRaiser, and Ganbare Goemon fill the Japanese release schedule. In addition to these titles, Nintendo announced that MSX and NeoGeo games would be appearing in spring and summer respectively. Only two titles were listed, Eggy and Aleste for the MSX at 800 Wii points apiece. No games were listed for the NeoGeo.
