They have FINALLY released the original NES version of Final Fantasy for the Wii Virtual Console.
You can go, right now, and download one of the greatest games ever made. And it's only 500 Wii points!
I'm not sure what that is in human money, but I'm very excited about it.
For the first time in 22 years, you can experience the magic, the majesty, the wonder of the game that gave birth to the greatest RPG franchise EVER.
The very first time.
Unless you still have the NES version.
Or an emulator.
Or you bought the Playstation 1 remake.
Or the PSP remake.
Or that Gameboy Advance remake with Final Fantasy I and II on it.
Is there a version for the iPhone yet? There's probably a version for the iPhone.
But if you, despite the overwhelming odds, somehow have not purchased one of these games, then this is the VERY first chance you've had to play it.
Otherwise, it's just a regular Monday.
You know, you COULD just go buy it again. That is an option.
I realize you probably own seventy odd versions of the game, but this is the first one that you can play on your Wii.
Unless you use homebrew. Then you probably have a NES emulator on your Wii.
Still, on the off chance that you don't either own one of those many, many, MANY versions AND you don't have homebrew on your Wii, this is totally awesome.
What are you waiting for? There's a console in your house that doesn't have Final Fantasy I on it.
Can you really live that way? Can you live like an animal?
Only an animal could live with only seventy versions of Final Fantasy I.
Seriously. You'd better hurry the hell up.
I don't care if you don't own a Wii. Go to the store and buy a Wii and then start reading this post from the beginning.
See? Now, there's a console in your house with no Final Fantasy I on it.
Get that Wii shop going and pay good money to buy a digital version of a game you probably own at least three physical copies of.
What? Makes sense to me.
