The recent spate of cold weather has apparently inspired Nintendo, as the company today uploaded 1080 Snowboarding for the Wii Virtual Console. 1080 Snowboarding originally appeared on the N64.
Full game details for the Nintendo Wii version of 1080 Snowboarding are avaiable below, including its cost in Wii Points.
1080 Snowboarding (1,000 Wii Points): Hit the slopes for some serious shredding in one of the first truly realistic snowboarding games ever created. Start in the lodge and select from five characters, each with his/her own particular attributes and special tricks. Then take a look at the wide assortment of available boards and choose one that best suits your rider and style.
Once you’ve got the gear, six different modes of play await, including Match Race, Trick Attack and Two-Player Versus. Throw in hidden characters and boards, varying weather and snow conditions, multiple paths through each course and a variety of tricks to master, and youâ€™ve got a recipe for winter fun — without the bruises and frostbite.
