Nin3DSNintendo Articles8 comments so far


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?

LTTP Title Screen

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 […]

Wii U GBA Virtual Console

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 […]

Mega Man 3

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?

Legend of Zelda The Minish Cap

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!

Castlevania Series (Circle of the Moon, Harmony […]
