    This is what the US gets today:

    Star Fox 64 - Nintendo 64 (1-4 players, 1,000 Wii Points):
    Players take the controls of their Arwing and complete 15 missions to reach the final objective: a showdown on Venom, the home planet of the interplanetary tyrant, Andross. Throughout the adventure, players have to accomplish challenging objectives in order to reach and conquer every mission. Skim over the surface of an alien sea, weave through the concrete canyons of a futuristic metropolis or dodge planetoids the size of mountains. Between missions, players will be treated to real-time 3-D movies that progress the story of the Star Fox team of space mercenaries in their struggle against the evil ape emperor, Andross.

    Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles - NES (1 player, 600 Wii Points):
    Cowabunga! Players take control of the turtles in a half shell and rescue reporter April O'Neil from the clutches of the evil Shredder. Battle against the Foot Ninja Clan as Leonardo, Michaelangelo, Donatello and Raphael with their trademark weapons and ninja abilities. Search through five stages and dozens of areas throughout the New York City sewers, rooftops and ultimately Shredder's Technodrome to save April. Players must scarf down some pizza to keep up their energy, as they'll need it to defeat Shredder. Turtle Power!

    Dragon's Curse - TurboGrafx-16 (1 player, 600 Wii Points):
    After defeating the Mecha Dragon in the depths of the Dragon Castle, the wounded beast casts a spell on the hero, turning him into an ugly creature. To return to human form, he must find the Salamander Cross, which can break any curse. This side-scrolling action role-playing game is nonlinear, allowing players to venture freely. Collect gold and items while upgrading equipment and powering up stats. The hero starts as Lizard-Man but, upon defeating the dragon bosses, is changed into other creatures such as Mouse-Man, Piranha-Man,Tiger-Man and Hawk-Man. Each creature possesses distinct abilities such as the ability to fly, swim, walk on ceilings or cling to walls. Players use each creature's special skills to widen your search for the Salamander Cross and bring the hero back to his human form!

    So finally a new N64 game, and its a great one heres hoping us PAL gamers wont have to wait too long for it.

    Just noticed that Turtles is pricier than the usual NES titles, I wonder why? Did Konami need to pay Ubisoft or what?

    seems like Nintendo likes to price their good NES titles "competitively," i mean it is one of the best games on the system....

    I might have to make my first two VC purchases tonite(turtles and star fox)!!!!

    I would guess the price is more expensive because of the new movie thats out.

    I'm still waiting for them to lower the prices of older vc releases like a greatest hits version or something.

    I nearly bought the Turtles one as I have fond memories of the SNES and Amiga versions, and then I played it again on an emulator and it wasnt as good as I thought.

    Wonder if the Arcade one would hit VC?

    I read somewhere in I think the Official Nintendo mag that there was rumble/vibrations in a couple of other controllers before the N64.

    First on N64 I believe.

    I hope the PAL version of this would be the Star Fox and not Lylat Wars.

    The original TMNT game for NES is probally more expensive because it is quite a large game by NES standards.
