Highlight Story

The Wreck-It Ralph game is destined for Nintendo consoles -- the DS, 3DS, and Wii -- with releases timed to coincide with the film's November debut.

Wreck-It Ralph stars John C. Reilly (Step Brothers, Walk Hard) as a video game baddie who wants to show the world he can be a good guy too.

There are nostalgic appearances from many a 70s, 80s and 90s game character, and Bowser, the long-time adversary of Nintendo mascot Mario, is one of them.

Capcom supplies characters from Street Fighter II, including Zangief, Chun-Li, and M. Bison, while Sega provides baddies from Sonic the Hedgehog (Doctor Eggman) and Altered Beast (Neff).

Clyde the orange ghost from Namco's Pac-Man appears, as does Gottlieb's pyramid-scaling Q*Bert.

Nintendo is the only company with a continued interest in the manufacture of home consoles -- Sega quit the console manufacturing biz in 2001 after the Dreamcast, while Atari's most recent contemporary games machine was the 1993 Jaguar.
