    Wouldn't it be great to have some other Konami games get the ReBirth treatment?

    The only downside:

    Always good to see more quality WiiWare titles pop up.
    Glad to see GC controller support too!

    *drools* This is definitely a buy if it ever comes stateside. I haven't played any VC's nor Wiiwares yet, so this game has the honor of being the first!
