    These titles will be available as downloads from the Wii Shop Channel with prices starting at 800 Wii™ Points for the titles. Wii Points can be purchased online or at retail at an MSRP of $20 for 2,000 points.

    Here's some more info from the press release detailing how the games will be accessed and played:

    "Nintendo has offered a great gateway in bringing classic SEGA titles such as Sonic The Hedgehog, Altered Beast and Toe Jam & Earl to Wii console owners," said Scott A. Steinberg, Vice President of Marketing, SEGA of America. "This is only the beginning though, as you can expect to see more announcements regarding other legendary titles from SEGA's catalog coming to the Wii Shop Channel in the coming months."

    In addition to providing downloadable access to Nintendo games from the NES®, Super NES® and Nintendo 64®, the exclusive Virtual Console service only available on the Wii features a "best of" selection from the SEGA Genesis game library that will be updated with new game content every month. After users download Virtual Console games from the Wii Shop Channel, each game will appear in the Wii Channel Menu as its own channel. To play the game, users simply select the game's channel.
    Altered Beast and Golden Axe - fantastic
