GameCube Games for the Wii? Oui.

Nintendo is playing with the possibility of re-releasing some of its GameCube titles for Nintendo’s upcoming Wii console. Nintendo producer Shigeru Miyamoto, in an interview given to Nintendo Dream, inferred that such an idea was a good one. A partial translation of the article stated that, "The machine is based on GC… We’ll be upgrading the development tools, but GameCube code can be used for the most part as is. In that sense, I believe that it would be good to remake GameCube games for Wii, and that some titles would become better with the change to the Wii remote controller." The Wii remote, or as some have dubbed it, the Wiimote, has the capability of motion detection as which measures the devices relative position, its speed, etc. Miyamoto,s remark is the first real indication of how similar the next gen Wii and the present gen GameCube are. Miyamoto then went on to say that such remakes of GameCube games would most likely be sold at a lower cost then the original GC games. "GC to Wii remakes can be produced quickly, it’s possible that many titles will also be released from third parties.”
