:cry: Now I need a Wii.

I loved the original and I'm really glad they didn't try to go 3D.

That actually looks really nice! The first time I played the original I was like wtfff, but it's defiantly an interesting game to say the least.

Beautiful hand-drawn style 2d graphics with a very charming art direction, whats not to like? It may not be as technically impressive as Eternal Sonata or Valkyria Chronicles, but it really doesn't need to be when it's already so aesthetically pleasing.

The original was one of the 10 or 11 NES games I actually owned as a kid. Really, it was an interesting little game. Good choice for a revival.

the fuss is because all these over-rendered Metal Gear Solid etc games all the look the same after a while. Some of us miss the simpler looking games.

Plus the original is such a classic, it's a big relief to see it not f'd up with 3D graphics.
