  1. There you go again being retarted, Capcom. Where the hell is Super Street Fighter IV? And where is a new Mega Man? Oh, but surely you can re-release old games for us instead? I’m done with this company. (Not counting Monster Hunter)

    1. Not counting Dead Rising, Ace Attorney, Strider or Ducktales either. They have a lot of franchises to cater to, so cut Capcom some slack.

    2. It’s the WiiU. It’s the HD 8-16 bit machine. :/ No N64 ports, no GC ports, just old games and Indies. (Thank God for the Indies…they have made me want to play my WiiU)

  2. Aeolus, you are absolutely correct. This port is far from the arcade version and could be compared as the little brother who has down syndrome Trisomy 21 . Mongolians of unnatural decent if you will..

    1. Yes. Nintendo replaced amazing drivers with babies.
      With all Nintendo’s obsessive moderation, I wonder how they justify putting babies on a race track to be electrocuted, set on fire, and placed behind the wheel of very dangerous vehicles? But to catch a baby, you need to advertise with Babies.

  3. I’ll see what Miiverse has to say about swords&soldiers. The Squid game might be fun also. *shrugs*

    I’m glad MNN posts these releases!!!

  4. Ok, Swords & Soldiers might have me at “ninja monkeys. Turtle Tale, I will DEFINATELY look at perhaps. Viva la Tortuga! (No, I don’t know if Tortuga is a feminine or masculine noun, darn it. I don’t even do well in English!)
