Nintendo to Make Sega Games Available for Revolution

No major announcements were made on the "Revolution" console during the speech of Nintendo's President Satoru Iwata at the Game Developers Conference on Thursday.

No launch date was revealed for the next-generation console during his keynote. One of the major news was Iwata's promise to expand the Revolution's download service with more classic games, including an unspecified number of titles for the Sega Genesis and the less popular TurboGrafx console. Instead of recompiling these games, Nintendo will simply use a software emulator to enable this content to run on the Revolution, he said.

The download service named "Virtual console" will add this older selection to classic games from previous Nintendo console generations, including 32 NES titles, 30 S-NES games and 18 N64 titles.

The Revolution's name which according to rumors is a only a development code remains unchanged. Iwata was still calling it Revolution during his speech. According to current speculation on the internet the final trade name could be Go.

Iwata also promised that playable Revolution consoles and games will be on-site at the E3.

Finally, the Nintendo keynote at the San Jose Conference was also used to announce The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass game for the Nintendo DS.
