    Michael Jackson's Moonwalker Coming to Virtual Console? Posted Sun, 08 Nov 2009 by M

    From vc.nintendolife, it looks like MJ's MoonWalker game might make it to virtual console...oh Lordy.


    The Virtual Console's first movie game?



    Could the King of Pop make his Wii debut soon?
    The PEGI has been a bit quiet for a while, as they tend not to add ratings to their site until the games in question have actually been released. Today, however, one game slipped through the cracks - And it's not an insignificant one either.


    A Virtual Console listing for Michael Jackson's Moonwalker has appeared, making it seem like one of the games nobody ever thought we would see could actually be making its way to a Wii near you sometime soon.
    If it happens it would be a very special occasion indeed, because as of yet, the service has still not seen any movie-based titles other than the Super Star Wars games. As you probably know, however, LucasArts owns the Star Wars license, so these aren't exactly "licensed" titles.


    Diehard Sega fans are probably aware that Michael always had close ties with the company - Other than Moonwalker, he appeared in their Space Channel 5 games and Ready 2 Rumble Boxing Round 2, and of course there's the ever persistent rumours that he composed some of Sonic the Hedgehog 3's music. Therefore, it's highly likely that they're putting the game on Virtual Console as a tribute. He deserves it!


    As of yet, we don't know if it's the arcade, Mega Drive/Genesis, or even Master System version of the game - But as the Mega Drive one was the most well-known, we're assuming it'll be that one. Ok, yes, it's not a very good game, but you've got to admit saving children from a bunch of gangsters as Michael Jackson by dancing and throwing around fairy dust is a fantastic (Not to mention hilarious) concept.
