There has not been a new Wii Virtual Console game release in North America in over a month.
Nintendo has not released a new Virtual Console game for Wii in North America since August, causing the longest span between Virtual Console releases in the system’s history.
The last Virtual Console release was 39 days ago on August 25 when Jaleco’s The Ignition Factor debuted for 800 Wii Points. Previously, the longest amount of time between releases was 28 days which occurred not once, but twice last year.
While the drought may end this Thursday October 5, Nintendo could end up waiting just a bit longer. At the moment, there are no WiiWare titles set for release on October 12. The last downloads day without a WiiWare release was August 25, which also happens to be the last time the Wii received a Virtual Console game. Will Nintendo repeat itself and finally release a Virtual Console game on a week with no WiiWare titles?
Stay tuned to Nintendo World Report for the answer.
