  1. I feel like this is a test run for potential games to include on the Mini SNES, that will surely be released in the future. If they do well on the Virtual console, they will make the cut for the SNES Mini. Just my thoughts.

  2. Hopefully this time all VC games available on the previous console will be available day 1, if not rapidly released one after the other, on the new console. Otherwise, why the fuck didn’t Nintendo start working early on getting every VC available for Switch at the start of development? If they can’t do it themselves, hire a good emulation team to help with the extra work!


    1. Then again, it’s pointless if there is no cross buy & cross save between Switch & Wii U like it is between PS3, PS Vita, & PS4. :/
