Yes, we know the Wii actually turned 15 shortly before that – November 19 to be exact – but since then our video team has come together to talk about the incredible impact of Nintendo’s motion controlled hippo.
It’s notable that this groundbreaking system is 15 years old (that’s more than half of the time Alex Olney was on this planet, fact fans), but it’s interesting to look back at just how strong the Wii launch was. Wii Sports and Zelda: The Twilight Princess, anyone? Yes please!
Of course, the console will offer other amazing features as well, and this was the first system launched with Nintendo’s virtual console service, offering players the opportunity to experience both old games and new ones.
Watch the video and share with us some of the most vivid memories of this original car.
