Lylat Wars is expected to appear on Virtual Console very soon, but Nintendo is keeping quiet about exactly when.
The US version of the game - StarFox 64 - tops the list of recent recipients of an ESRB (Entertainment Software Ratings Board) certificate in the US (it's been rated "E", in case you're interested).
That's not enough for Nintendo to confirm anything though, with a UK representative declining to comment when we made contact this morning.
Still, if recent trends are anything to go by then Lylat Wars should pop out from behind an asteroid and start costing 1000 Wii points in the nearish future.
