is it just me, or has anyone got to thinking that nintendo is releasing their vc games in accordance to promote smash bros? by this i mean they're puting out games that feature charchters that will be in the upcoming smash bros. if im correct, this is a brilliant stradegy, nintendo already knows smash bros will be the best selling wii game, and with all the "new gamers" the wii attracts, they can use the vc games to lure these new gamers into buying smash bros brawl.
think about it
super mario bros/world/ 64 = mario, luigi, yoshi, peach, bowser
kirbys adventure = kirby, meta knight, (maybe dedede)
kid icarus = pit
ice climbers = popo&nana (the ice climbers)
donkey kong country = donkey kong, (maybe diddy kong and king k. rool)
zelda:link to past = link, zelda
f-zero = captian falcon
now pokemon will sell itself, everyone knows bout pokemon. then u got wario ware that released for wii to promote wario as a new comer. and if you look at the games that are registered with the ESRB you see that STAR FOX 64 is comming and metroid. my guess is as metroid will release next, then star fox, near the release brawl.
