Iwata also announced partnerships with Sega and Hudson to offer downloadable access to their classic games via Revolution's Virtual Console. Revolution owners will be able to relive their past gaming glories from the Sega Genesis console by playing a "best of" selection from more than 1,000 Genesis titles, as well as games sold for the TurboGrafx console (a system jointly developed by NEC and Hudson). These games join Revolution's access to 20 years of fan-favorite Nintendo games from the NES, Super NES and Nintendo 64 eras.
I couldn't afford to get a Sega when I was a kid. We only had Nintendo, but I always wanted a Genesis, and sometimes we rented one so I could play the Sonic Games. But there were a bunch of games I wanted to play back then. Hopefully now I'll be able to when we get a Revolution!
Iwata also revealed for the first time that a new game called The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass would be released for Nintendo DS later this year.
Two Zelda games this year? Wouldn't that be nice :D There's a trailer for it on that link at the top of this post too. It looks fun with the DS functionality.
