January 28th Virtual Console release

Another Monday, another Wii Virtual Console update. This time, though, there’s only one game being added to Nintendo’s channel. On the bright side, it’s actually a good one! (And strangely fitting, given the fact that it snowed here overnight…)

No, I’m not talking about Ski Free–I’m talking about 1080 Snowboarding. The ol’ N64 snowboardin’ hit makes its way to the VC after years of being completely forgotten as one of the funnest and most rented N64 titles. The full release details are below.

1080° SNOWBOARDING (N64, 1-2 players, Rated E for Everyone, 1,000 Wii points): Hit the slopes for some serious shredding in one of the first truly realistic snowboarding games ever created! Start in the lodge and select from five characters, each with his/her own particular attributes and special tricks. Then take a look at the wide assortment of available boards and choose one that best suits your rider and style. Once you’ve got the gear, six different modes of play, including Match Race, Trick Attack, and 2-Player
Versus, await. Pick a course and get ready to experience a sensation of speed that’ll make you forget all about the cold-but it might just send a shiver down your spine. Throw in hidden characters and boards, varying weather and snow conditions, multiple paths through each course, and a variety of tricks to master-topped off with rock-solid play control-and you’ve got a recipe for winter fun that you can enjoy any time of the year. It’s all the fun and excitement of the sport, without the bruises and frostbite!
