If you can remember all the way back to May 2008, perhaps you’ll recall the birth of a little service called WiiWare. One of the launch titles for Nintendo’s download platform was LostWinds from Frontier Developments (maker of Thrillville). Along with a few other games, it did a splendid job of showcasing the potential for downloadable games on Wii.
Starting today, though, you can now grab LostWinds on your Apple device for a fraction of the original 1000 Wii Point asking price.
It remains to be seen how well the change of controls will bode for the game, but if platformers like Shantae are any indication, the transition will be rather smooth.
