According to the OFLC (Australian Video Game Ratings board) anyway. So there’s pretty good evidence the game’s making it to Virtual Console. But part of me wonders just one thing here. Namely, why the hell is this game coming to the Virtual Console? Find out why I’m curious in the full post…
Recently at Nintendo’s Financial Briefing, Satoru Iwata mentioned that Nintendo had overcome the technical limitations stopping them releasing DS games on the Wii U’s Virtual Console, saying that such games would be available sometime soon. But while to a degree this sounds like a great idea, there’s one minor thing that’s now been bugging me about the concept. Namely, how the hell is the Mario & Luigi series gonna work on such a service?
Well, we knew they were coming at some point. But as Nintendo of Europe is now reminding us on Twitter, they’re coming to the 3DS eShop extremely soon, that being May 30th. Here’s their Tweet reminding people of these games imminent rerelease: Game Boy classics The Legend of #Zelda: Oracle of Ages & Oracle of Seasons arrive on Nintendo #eShop this Thursday! ow.ly/i/2dfjG — Nintendo of Europe (@NintendoEurope) May 27, 2013 So yeah, you heard the people at Nintendo Zelda fans! Only three days left until you can buy The Legend of Zelda Oracle of Ages and The Legend of Zelda Oracle of Seasons from the 3DS eShop! Do you plan to buy these titles when they’re released?
It’s been wanted on the service a while, and now the original Game Boy Color Shantae game has been officially confirmed for the 3DS Virtual Console. Originally released only in the US, the game will now be made available digitally in all regions via the eShop, as mentioned in WayForward’s official announcement here: http://www.wayforward.com/blog/2013/5/17/shantae-is-ret-2-go.html So yes, Shantae is now officially confirmed for the 3DS Virtual Console! Is anyone excited for this?
With 2D Zelda games seemingly back in fashion and The Legend of Zelda A Link to the Past 2 hitting the 3DS later this year, it seems like a whole new generation of Zelda fans may be introduced to SNES era style Zelda design. But should the original Link to the Past be released as well, perhaps as a Virtual Console game that’s available to buy for the 3DS eShop? I think it should be, and here’s why: 1. The game can be a good introduction to the series for those interested in the sequel First things first, I think rereleasing the original Link to the Past on 3DS would be a good idea simply due to how long it’s […]
In a recent PR e-mail Nintendo has sent out, they mention that GBA titles will be added to the Wii U Virtual Console soon. Here’s the text of the e-mail talking about it: A library of quality classic games is planned for the Virtual Console on Wii U, with favorites such as Balloon Fight, Donkey Kong, Donkey Kong Jr., Excitebike, F-Zero, Ice Climber, Kirby’s Adventure, Kirby Super Star, Mario Bros., Punch-Out!! Featuring Mr. Dream, Super Mario Bros. 2, Super Mario World, Super Metroid and Yoshi on the way soon. Game Boy Advance and Nintendo 64 games are scheduled to be added in the future. But to be honest… am I the only one wondering why they’re adding GBA titles to […]
That’s according to Capcom on the official Capcom Unity forums, who’ve said the game is going to be available on the service from March 14th 2013. Here’s the original post talking about it: http://www.capcom-unity.com/brelston/blog/2013/03/08/sfxmm-hits-1-million-downloads-plus-other-mm25-updates Furthermore, Mega Man 3 hits the 3DS Virtual Console next week (March 14), with 4, 5 and 6 following each month. By the time MM6 hits, we’ll also have digital versions of their amazing soundtracks available for sale. Thanks for the update Capcom. Nice to know the classic Mega Man games are still coming to the 3DS Virtual Console as a way to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the series. Maybe now you can also add the Game Boy games or something? Source: http://mynintendonews.com/2013/03/10/mega-man-3-is-coming-to-nintendo-3ds-virtual-console-next-week/
With the recent announcement of the Zelda Oracle series being re-released on the 3DS eShop, many would say most of the important Game Boy games have now been re-released. So what’s the next logical step? To add some GBA titles to the platform! Yes, they’re planned for the Wii U for some reason (why I don’t know), but still, Nintendo should add them to the 3DS Virtual Console as well and let people play these games how they should be played, on the go. So here are ten great GBA games I want to see on the 3DS Virtual Console! Note: Except Pokemon. Those games should get a remake or something instead. 10. Castlevania Series (Circle of the Moon, Harmony […]
The added titles are as follows: Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed(Retail Game)(Price :€34.99/£29.99) Real Heroes: Firefighter 3D (Retail Game)(Price :€9.99/£8.99) Mega Man 2 (NES Virtual Console) (Price: €4.99/£4.49) Fractured Soul demo (Retail Demo)(Free) -TruePowerofTeamwork
Usually, Nintendo Direct presentations aren’t that much to care about. Maybe coverage of a single game or two at best, usually with the only announcements being a mediocre eShop game that Nintendo hypes up as the best thing in the world. So my expectations going into today’s video were pretty much nil. And to start off, I guess I was sort of right. Here’s what Iwata talked about first: There will be two new Wii U updates, one in Spring and one in Summer to improve console functionality. The Wii U Virtual Console will be started, with Miiverse, off screen play and save data backup functionality. Game Boy Advance titles will be on the Virtual Console, albeit with no mention […]
