Wii virtual console release for this week

Virtual console releases for the week of 1/28.

Just one new virtual console game graces the Wii this week. Right on time for winter, 1080° Snowboarding (1998, Nintendo 64, 1,000 Wii Points) is now available for download. This title debuted during the height of the snowboarding game era along side such classics as the Sony Coolboarders series.

In 1080° Snowboarding, you'll enjoy six different modes of play and try your luck at one of the most realistic snowboarding games of its time. Customize your board and clothes, and try to pull off some tricks on a variety of courses.

We're starting to see these Virtual Console releases begin to taper off--let's hope this isn't a trend.
