Surprise, again! MSX games support USB keyboards

D4 Enterprise just opened up a new area of their "Project MSX" website that provides information on the MSX game(s) available on the Japanese Virtual Console. This site, which is designed similarly to the VC sites operated by Sega and Hudson, is going to be an excellent resource for learning about obscure MSX games as they come out, with boxarts, screenshots and game descriptions.

The page for the sole MSX game currently available, Aleste, revealed surprising, previously unknown information about the Wii's MSX emulator: specifically, that Aleste supports the use of USB keyboards, in addition to the Wiimote, GameCube controller, and Classic Controller. It makes sense since the MSX is a computer, but this is the first new control option for a Virtual Console game since the service began.
