Secret 'Warp Zone' area of Virtual Console revealed

'Hidden' area offers historical trivia for Nintendo characters

Wii owners connecting to the UK Virtual Console will find a small surprise awaiting them in the form of a secret - although not particularly well hidden - area on the Virtual Console.

Wandering onto the Virtual Console to check out the latest update, we spotted a text-drawn smiley face on the front page which, when clicked, took us to a "secret" page of the Virtual Console.

The following page reads: "Welcome to the Warp Zone! ... Congratulations, you've discovered the Virtual Console's hidden area. This is your secret doorway into another dimension; a portal into the past, if you will."

The page goes on to reveal that the Warp Zone is where Nintendo will build up a collection of interesting facts and trivia about its biggest characters, starting with a historical look at Kirby.

If Nintendo does indeed update this Warp Zone regularly with new features, it could become a fantastic source for official Nintendo info and a neat extra for hardcore fans. We'll be keeping an eye on it.
