New content may be offered separately from VC titles.
Speaking to Game Informer, Hudson Entertainment's John Lee hinted at the possibility of an original Games Channel for the Nintendo Wii.
When he was asked about Hudson publishing original games on the Virtual Console, he stated: "Well, the VC was specifically designed to bring back classic games, not to introduce new content. So to answer your question specifically: No."
"However, in the future, you should rephrase that question to: Are there any plans to launch original content on some downloadable service on the Wii, and you might get a different answer."
CVG contacted Nintendo regarding the quote, and the company of course responded that it does plan to allow original content to be released via the Wii Shop. Which it naturally should've, since the company confirmed at last year's E3 that original content would be released at some point. It's not surprising that Nintendo would want to separate it from classic titles in some way.
