Retro Wrap-Up: Nintendo Wi-Fi | oprainfall

Another week is behind us, ladies and gentlemen. This week’s Retro Wrap-Up celebrates the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection service (http://www NULL.nintendo NULL.com/whatsnew/detail/vyWpoM6CBIe6FjW8NIY7bvzOrgBURhzw) that brought new life to so many games on the Wii and DS. I was able to find a few of the first games to use Nintendo Wi-Fi on each system, a few more favorites sprinkled in, and a certain special game as a send-off. What were your favorite games that used the service?

In the spirit of being worldly (thanks to the powers of the Internet—I wouldn’t have been able to become a Pokémon Master without it), the oprainfall Retro Commercial Research Team—me—brings you a handful of great TV moments from games that feature Nintendo Wi-Fi here in North America.

Here are the highlights from this past week:
