SEGA Clarifies “No Immediate Plans” For Wii U Virtual Console, But Doesn’t Rule Out Possibility

SEGA has clarified an earlier statement from research and development producer Yosuke Okunari that said there were no plans for Wii U virtual console. Last week, Okunari responded to a fan over Twitter mentioning there were no plans to develop any Virtual Console games for the Wii U, but he failed to mention any specific details. In a recent statement to Eurogamer, SEGA has cleared up any subsequent confusion by announcing there are “no immediate plans” for Virtual Console game development, but that doesn’t rule out the possibility in the future.

“Sega would like to clarify a statement that was issued over Twitter. All options are currently on the table concerning development for the Wii U Virtual Console. Although there are no immediate plans, this does not negate the possibility and exploration of creating for this platform.”

        1. Nintendo is my Blood

          Oh silvershadowfly, while you are here, I haven’t seen that troll sasori here recently, has he been banned or if not, banned yet?

          1. I’m not sure if he’s been banned. But if he does return we’ll keep an eye on things. :)

            Also while I’m here, and this is directed to all readers, I know it’s the internet but try not to lash out too much. Trolls are there to get a reaction out of you – I had to edit some particularly vitriolic death threats last week. Not fun, guys.

            1. Nintendo is my Blood

              I see… well sometimes there are trolls and people like sasori who seem to be a danger to themselves

              one minute he goes making rant videos for hours at a time (which is not normal) to committing suicide on camera because everyone begins to hate him

              Trust me, he seems to have a problem and even though it is the internet, not even trolls say the horrid things he says

                1. Nintendo is my Blood

                  Yeesh, he does, he spend 20-40 minutes at a time per video just to rant about his problems, mostly about Nintendo
                  it is actually quite depressing that he can spend hours ranting about something
                  It may actually be a sign of a mental disorder

                    1. Nintendo is my Blood

                      No he isn’t, let us review the facts:

                      He is against Martin Luther King
                      He is sexist and treats woman as nothing more than sex toys
                      He is a hypocrite, going on about how the Xbox is so good… he can’t even afford one, how would he know?
                      He lacks simple logic, he says he wants an Xbox but buys the games before he even buys the console, that is ridiculous, you buy the console first THEN you get the games
                      He spends hours ranting on camera, even iceazeama wasn’t that pathetic, if you are going to rant, you spend 10 minutes max, he spends over 2 hours and counting
                      He calls us Nintendrones and slaves but does he realise he is a Narutard? It isn”t even a good show

                      now let’s talk about this “sasori” from Naruto that the little imp worships so much
                      “sasori” is a “thing” that fights using puppets and he is even a puppet himself because he basically made a puppet body and put his heart in it
                      now some of the puppets he has are made from human corpses, he outfits them with weapons and sometimes wears them
                      That is freaky Silence of the Lambs shit right there and this imp likes that? Now tell me that is not someone who grows up to become a serial killer?

                    1. Nintendo Commander Quadraxis

                      Like something or not, still not a reason for any of those things in anyway…

                      I destroy primitive apes like that…

                    2. Nintendo Commander Quadraxis

                      If I was a racist, I would specify myself on a certain type pf human…

                      But seeing as I’m anti human on basically almost all levels, I’m not a racist at all, I’m Anti Human which is far better than any of your pathetic irrelevant hatred towards your own kind…

                      You humans should really learn the definition of “racism”…

                    3. Nintendo Commander Quadraxis

                      Considering you seem to know so much about that, I’m sorry to hear about your CBS…

                      Chiquita Banana Syndrome…

                    4. Nintendo Commander Quadraxis

                      Considering I’m not into girls or women, it’s illogical, thus your comment and entire intelligence has been rendered invalid and needs a reboot for further research…

                    5. Are you serious or that stupid? People dont choose to be gay you dumb fuck the same as people dont choose to be black or white… get an education please!!!

              1. Nostalgia-

                Your the dumbest piece of shit ive ever spoke to! If you bothered to read my post you know gay isnt a choice an homophobia is as wrong as racism

          2. Sasori isn’t even a troll, he’s only an attention seeker, just see how his mediocrity made him fall.

          1. Nintendo Commander Quadraxis

            Imagine if they got a child together…

            It would be worse than the Electron Army Sports…

  1. Basically 2015 Genesis and Dreamcast vc in summer probably starting with sonic, Streets of Rage, Shinobi, Vectorman, Ecco, and Phantasy Star 2 or Virtua racing. Dreamcast would start with Sonic Adventure, Phantasy Star Online, Space Channel 5, ChuChu Rocket, and Tides of Time (Ecco) As far as 3rd party games I hope we see Powerstone or Gunstar Heroes for dc and gen respectively.

      1. I’ll agree with that last sentiment because the Wii didn’t get Jet Set Radio HD for understandable reasons.

  2. Jesus christ, can we talk about the goddamn article?

    Anyone else think Sega is screwing Nintendo over? Nintendo didnt make the new Sonic game, which may be the worst Sonic game ever made, but Sega seems to be acting as if it’s theyre, Nintendos, fault.
