The Wiire

To Wii, With Love: Cutest Couples

By Rob Galbreath / February 14, 2007
What's the most common sound one might expect to hear around Valentine's Day? Hopefully the answer is "Aww!" and not "Cha-ching!" Cute couples abound this time of year as much in the virtual world as in the real one. As such, The Wiire has enlisted the help of Cupid himself to give credit to the 'aww'-inspiring moments one can only find on Nintendo's little love-machine.

Please note that Cupid hasn't had his morning coffee and may spout off story spoilers. Read at your own risk.

The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess

Link has grown up, and like most grown-up boys he's acquired a nasty horde of hormones. In Twilight Princess, the building of serious relationships between Link and members of the opposite sex is the most evident symbol of the hero's rising maturity. Although he apparently didn't get the memo stating that multiple relationships carried on at the same time tends to be bad.

Red Steel

Ubisoft's Wii-exclusive FPS begins with an age-old premise that still touches the heart: that of a man fighting to save the woman he loves. Of course, Scott Monroe doesn't hesitate to learn the arts of swordsmanship and gunplay along the way. It's safe to say that Scott is a bit more forceful about saving damsels in distress than good ol' Mario, but once one looks past Scott's trail of blood and bullets there lies a sincere tale of cross-cultural love that should bring a smile to even the most calloused warrior.

Super Swing Golf

Young love, it's so precious... especially when the kids involved are competitive, stubborn, and wanting to win the annual Pangya Festa golf tournament. Super Swing Golf presents gamers with a variety of quirty characters and even quirkier relationships, but cuteness can be found around every green.

Trauma Center: Second Opinion

Most people will tell you it's not a good idea to mix your professional and personal lives. Yes, in the real world. But on Wii, there's nothing to stop crazy hospital staff members from finding love in the operation room, as demonstrated by Atlus' first Wii game, Trauma Center: Second Opinion.

Rayman Raving Rabbids

Who says you need limbs to love? We're not sure what Rayman's parents would say about their son's choices in companionship, but we at The Wiire pass no judgments. Plus we're a little scared of what measures lunatic rabbids succumb to when they don't get their daily doses of love.

We here at The Wiire - oh, and Cupid - hope these moments of gag-worthy cuteness spur you to engage in your own Valentine's Day antics, either with loved ones or your Wii. Or both. Raging Rob also promises you'll never see this much happiness on The Wiire ever again. Until next year, anyway. Have a good one!
