Fire Emblem better come to the 3DS Virtual Console. I don't care if they just translate it and slap on "NES" under the game like the other NES Virtual Console games instead of "Famicon." Fire Emblem would be the best thing ever if it came to the America and Europe!

I like how you set things up now. I was thinking this exact technique. Just edit the post, and have the "Edited on [Date] by MrSRArter" be taken care for you. Keep it up, so this forum wouldn't get spammed by your giant updates. Good job.

Excluding the Genesis 3D Classics, the games that I would buy as soon as I could afford them when they come from the Japanese Virtual Console to the American Virtual Console would be:

  • Double Dragon
  • Donkey Kong 3
  • Castlevania II: Simon's Quest
  • Devil World
  • Mario Bros.
  • Galaga
  • Double Dragon II
  • Mach Rider

Even though there are other games that only the Japanese have, those are the games that I am jealous of and I would scream like a little girl when they get announced. I listed them in the order I think they would be released in, but it's just an assumption. I'm so pumped!

I would download most of those myself (I already have Galaga on 3DS as part of compilations though)

I actually have Galaga on my PS2 and GBA as part of Namco Museums but I also have it for my 3DS in Pac Man and Galaga Legions or whatever it's called. I like Galaga so much that I would like to have the Virtual Console NES Galaga downloaded for me to play anytime, since the Pac Man/Galaga game was my first 3DS game so it never had the chance to be downloadable, only retail.

We're first to get Ninja Gaiden II again, in fact, Ninja Gaiden 2 and 3 didn't even come to the Wii VC in Japan or Europe, though they probably will this time around.

Same here, i can play the arcade version of Galaga in Namco Museum DS, thus making the NES version redundant. It's probably not coming here anytime soon.

I'm surprised Japan didn't get those. I know PAL regions only the got the first game (US version as an import game, even though there were PAL versions of the first two games).

Even weirder... Japan got Final Fight 1 and 3 on VC but not 2?

Final Fight 3 was called "Final Fight Tough" in Japan though

Ninja Gaiden II was released in America a week before Europe got it, by the way.

Geesh, Europe is way ahead of America now. Only about two months ago, the only games that they had that we didn't were Blaster Master and Trip World, but Blaster Master was released in both America and Europe. But the only games that were released for America and Europe was is not in the European Virtual Console is Donkey Kong and Mario Golf. Revenge of the Gator, Star Soldier, River City Ransom, and Solomon's Key all should have came out by now in America. Seriously, what's going on with the Virtual Console and Nintendo of America? This has started to happen just two months ago.

I know what you mean, things did speed up for a bit when Iwata started doing all of the decisions for America instead of Tatsuki, but now it's slown down to the way it was before. Then again, during summer of 2012, there were several weeks where North America got nothing at all.

EDIT: Even Japan's only getting 1 a week now.
