  1. Oh boy Nothing again. No chrono trigger. No mortal kombat. No N64 or gc games. Not enough snes games. They should just put every game ever released by Nintendo on the eshop. They’d make money in the end on it. Even with games only 24 people bought.

      1. As for Chrono Trigger, Mortal Kombat, and the like, I think that would be up to whichever company made/owns the franchise. I’m pretty sure that Nintendo just can’t release games made by other developers without their permission- ie: The NES/gameboy Mega Man games were released and enforced by Capcom.

        And seeing that Microsoft now “owns” Battletoads, Banjo, Conker, etc- there’s practically no way that those series will come to Nintendo’s virtual console. It’s a shame.

        But, yeah, I would really love if Nintendo released more virtual console games. My family missed out on a few GameCube games, that are now pretty expensive for being over 10 years old. I would love to play F Zero, Fire Emblem, and Sanity’s Requiem for the GameCube, but last time I checked they are selling for at least ~20$ each on eBay+shipping+tax. A 10$ GameCube game would be pretty resonable, if Nintendo was to re-release them.

  2. I’ve wanted to play this ever since I first found out about it about 5 years ago, I hope it makes it to the UK/European eShop.

  3. I hope nintendo’s servers are going to be ready for the number of people who are going to download smash…

        1. ;D – I mean, I HOPE it doesn’t crash!

          But Everytime… Pokebank, Pokemon, Christmas eve -> the day after…

          Granted, other companies have issues as well, but when Nintendo crashes, they go down hard. :(

          Crossing my fingers I can start my download at Midnight!

  4. I am really suprised we have not gotten any N64 games at the very least. And what ever happened to dual gamepad support for the Wii U.

  5. Looks like Smash may be one of my last 3DS titles for a while. My 32 gigs will be maxed, (and I’ve already deleted alot of stuff) and I’ve maxed out the software SD card save-backups. (yes, you can do that. X.x) If I go 64 gig, it needs to be Micro SD so I can transfer it to the New 3DS next year…so I’ll start price hunting.

    12 hours until smash download begins!

    1. Visits the NewEgg, TigerDirect, and BestBuy daily deals everyday. At least 4 times a month they have deals on memory storage. Its always different though, like right now they have a deal on 64GB flash drives for $19.99.

  6. If some of these virtual console games are coming from Konami, then I wonder how long will it be to put the original metal gear games on wii u. Then they could maybe want to put more konami made games on wii u, maybe even Metal Gear Solid series one day.

    1. Definitely look into Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrow. It’s easily one of best Castlevania games (on par with Symphony of the Night, I would say).

  7. Wait so no casltevania love for 3ds Dracula x should come to both 3ds and wiiu don’t you guys agree with me

  8. …Thats the wrong image for Dracula X. It’s the from Rondo of Blood which is the REAL version on the PC Engine not the lackluster one on Snes. I got happy for a minute there till I realized it was wrong. Funny thing is I have it already in the original Wii’s VC but being able to play off tv would’ve been nice… And I agree with a earlier post that VC games should be cross play, hope nintendo figures it out.
