[News] [Retro] [Wii]

Wii Virtual Console Banner

SuperGuido is out of town on business again this week, so I'm doing my best to fill in.  Although I live in the States, I usually have no problems finding the information about Nintendo's Virtual Console.  And this week is no different, but it seems either Nintendo only released one title or my sources are incorrect.


Double Dribble
NES - 1-2 players - Rated 3+ - 500 Points - Konami - 1989

Double Dribble is a basketball video game by Konami. The original version was an arcade game released in 1986. In September of 1987 a version followed for Nintendo's Nintendo Entertainment System. A version was also released for the Commodore 64 computer.

The NES version features 5-on-5 action on a horizontally scrolling court, four different teams (Boston, New York, Chicago, Los Angeles), three levels of single-play difficulty, and four different choices of quarter lengths. Double Dribble was among the first games to feature cut scenes, which depicted a mid-air player completing a slam-dunk, and one of the first to use speech, though in a limited quantity (such as announcing the game title and the game's beginning jump ball).
