Ocarina of Time heads up list of upcoming VC offerings

Nintendo graciously gave U.S. gamers an early preview of this Monday's VC update in the form of a press release announcing imminent availability of The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time (originally developed for the N64).

Hopefully Nintendo doesn't follow the footsteps it took when it released The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past a month or so ago (the SNES classic was the only VC release that week). Even if that's the case, though, you can hardly go wrong by purchasing Ocarina of Time, arguably Link's best video game adventure to date.

In other VC news, the folks at GoNintendo claim two TurboGrafx-16 games will be showing up on a Wii Shop Channel near you sooner rather than later: the seminal Splatterhouse and the mediocre Double Dungeons. GoNintendo didn't specify whether they're due for release in Japan, Europe or the U.S. Here's hoping at least Splatterhouse comes to the States eventually.
