    • Didn’t they say that Earthbound will come out at the End of the year?! Is this a Launch list or a list of launching games and already announced games, that will come to the VC?Oo

      • They said BY the end of the year….just means that it will be out this year, but nothing has been made official enough for a quarter estimate

  1. Nintendo of America is really delivering everything to all Wii U owners. The reduced loading times, Wii U Panorama View, and the Virtual Console for NES and Super NES games. It’s wallet fattening time!

      • I just got Injustice (that new game that came out on Tuesday) on Wii U too, it’s got a somewhat disturbing story with a mad Superman

      • Like others said, Injustice just released. RE:Revelations, Deus Ex, Sniper Elite V2, Fast & Furious all come out in may and all are new to the Wii U, with 2 being new to consoles entirely.

        Then you’ve got the supposed leak of the German release of W101, NA usually gets games a couple weeks earlier than Europe depending on the game (still miffed that Terranigma on the SNES has never been brought over).

        What they REALLY aren’t bringing are better 3DS XL colors. Blue/Black, Red/Black, Pikachu, Animal Crossing. Ugh, no thank you. I want a 3DS…..but not with those colors.

        • The problem is that some of us already have a PS3 or Xbox 360 for third party games. We still want first party games to come out as well.

              • Killzone 4 and god of war Asencion beg to differ, also.. metal gear solid 5 and all the spin-off, I KNOW that it’s owned by konami, but they were exclusive to Playstation.. i don’t know man, you are trying to hard… Uncharted got is 3 games on a single generation.. when mario got 2 Galaxy titles, galaxy are the MAIN game series… im pretty sure you will say “but there is mario tenis.. mario x, mario kart mario bla bla bla bla” at the end they are all different and nintendo could just call them, “nintendo all star racing” or something.. they use mario just because its sells we all know that, but you talk about miliking and rehashing, wheeen. there were 3 uncharted games on a single generaton, 3 God of war, 2 killzones by sony’s part, and 2 galaxy mario, 1 Zelda (twilight doesn’t count as it was a port from gamecube), 2 metroids.. for me miliking and rehashing would be that, making the same type of game a lot of times but maaaaaan, you know how different is mario 64 to sunshine to galaxy.. metroid prime to other m, ni

              • The reason why Sony moves to new IPs so often is because none of their series have the same staying power as Nintendo’s. You can bet that if Sony had something as popular as Mario they would milk it too.

                Like

                  • By staying power I mean how many of Sony’s 1st party franchises from the first Playstation are still popular? Only Gran Turismo if i’m not mistaken. They could’ve really expanded on Crash and Spyro but they were stupid and let them go. Although franchises from the PS2 are still around they have nowhere near the popularity as Nintendo’s and were milked to hell (there were more God of War games in a single generation than the main Mario platforming games, same goes for Ratchet & Clank). I love Sony, but none of their franchises come close to Nintendo’s.

  2. I want earthbound out in Europe and the U.S. at least 3 months before zelda wind waker is released to spread out releases, losing the software droughts.

  3. Come on Nintendo, do this VC correctly and dont release a bunch of crap games that nobody will care about/buy/or want to play like you did with the Wii’s VC.

    Like

      • Ok let me be a bit more clearer. For one, I am NOT calling those titles crap. And two, what I meant was the fact that the Wii’s VC was getting crap titles month after month in the US. Whereas the Wii VC in Japan was getting way better titles releases that we didnt see until a great deal later.

        • Curse there not being an edit button for your comments, but anyway. The VC is a retro gamer’s dream, outside of emulators, with so much potential. And to sit there and not fully utilize said potential is a waste. Truth be told the VC is what actually sold me on the Wii, that along with the Gamecube BC, it was the all in one system. Like I said a retro gamer’s dream.

  6. Well, if Earthbound is available this Tuesday, it will be a day 1 purchase. Also, looking forward to the system update as well, in addition to the Rayman Legends challenge mode. I believe the challenge mode comes out this week as well.

  7. That’s cool but when are we going to get virtual console GameCube games? They’ve been giving these games out since the wii so I’m not excited about this at all.

  8. FUCK! Stop arguing which console is better! Aren’t we gamers? Do NOT be fanboys, just play and enjoy the games.
    What’s the big deal? Want to being noticed? Shit, just shut up.
    Men, this people are giving me crazy… They all say they’re gamers, but they’re as idiots fanboys as beliebers, directioners or another fucking fan of another fucking thing.
    Stop it, please… Just enjoy the games, don’t care which company does.

  9. Weird – can’t see this on the Wii U or Nintendo Facebook pages. Has it been removed?
    Anyway, what I really want to know is if I’ve already purchased these on the Wii VC, will they be listed as free re-downloads on the Wii U VC, or will I have to purchase them again (for the 3rd or 4th time in some cases)? I really love Nintendo, but I’m getting really sick of paying for the same games over and over again.

  10. Need to clarify that the list is for upcoming games for the virtual console because metroid is set to release on may 17. Unless they changed their mind about it which is highly unlikely and earthbound was just announced so there’s no way it could release now
