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.
For all it’s secrets, however, the European Warp Zone did not disclose when, if ever, online play was coming to the Wii.
