About damn time I say!

I am so excited now. Too bad I don't got enough Wii Points. Still waiting for my free NES game after downloading the Internet Channel.

So, have they changed the script at all?

Usually games that are released on the Virtual Console remained untouched from their original releases. So I really doubt there were any script changes

Just the description alone in the quote you posted is different from the original NES. I wouldn't be surprised to find more changes.

What took them so long to get it on there? It's almost been three years since their system released. For shame Nintendo.

The description IS a bit misleading.

I'm disappointed in the video quality of it. Scanlines across textures going sideway, top screen appearing at the bottom for a second when going horizontally.

Also disappointed that they didn't fix the "ineffective" glitch OR change the censored images back to the originals.

I wonder if they'll take out the White Wizard's middle finger.
