Japan and Europe both get Super Mario Bros Deluxe for a limited time as exclusively part of the "Nintendo Network Promotion". You only get if you either register an ID for your 3DS or if you link your NNID on your Wii U to your 3DS before January 31st 2014. North America doesn't get this offer but it is possible that NA can get Super Mario Bros Deluxe through a different offer in the future like how "Donkey Kong Original Edition" was originally released in Europe only in 2010 as part of the Red Mario anniversary Wii bundles but was released for 3DS in Japan and North America in 2012.

Are you any major must-buy TurboGrafx-16 games out there? King of Fighters are on the Neo Geo, not the TurboGrafx-16. I'm pretty sure that the TG16 is known for its space shooters based off of Classic Game Room.

Friend Safari: Butterfree, Venomoth, and Volbeat (if there are any Bug Catchers out there...?)
Looking For: Ditto, Magneton Friend Safaries (please contact me if you have any)

Yeah, it sucks being the last and/or ignored region. Just ask Europe and Australia ;)

Rondo of Blood
Best versions of most of the Wonderboy games
Most of the NES Arcade ports have a much better Tg16 or pc engine version (Life Force being an obvious example)
Ninja Spirit (Best Ninja game ever released I think).
Magical Chase (shmup with some elements of platformers.)
The TG16 version of Street Fighter 2 ce plays much more like it should than any of the other ports.

Incidentally the only decent Neo Geo ports were all on the PC Engine.

There's also a few other good ones like the Bonk games, the Zonk games, Lords/Gate of Thunder, Blazing Lazers, Bomberman games, Ys Book I & II, most of the Wonderboy games, Neutopia I and II, Galaga '90, New Adventure Island, and many shooters. There are many games worth getting, and I'm glad Konami is actually planning on doing something with this stuff instead of sitting on it.

I wonder if Ys could have rights issues (aside from that we don't know if they'll include CD games, or recreate the TurboExpress by being card-only). Atlus published a DS version, and it seems currently Xseed is publishing a bunch of games.
I had hoped to see Dragon Slayer Legend of Heroes on the Wii VC but that never happened (outside Japan).

XSeed has no rights over the TG-16 games, only the newer games that Falcom are making. We could very easily get Ys I & II and III down the road for the 3DS and Wii-U. Unfortunately, we won't get IV unless someone translates it. I heard that is one of the best Ys games.

Either way, I hope we get I & II. That's one of the best games for the system.

When a company licenses a franchise, that usually applies to all versions of the franchise. :P
It's why Nintendo cared if Tengen made a not-properly-licensed version of Tetris for NES, they don't want someone else possibly taking away their profits without permission.
Didn't Konami have to give UBI Soft money to be allowed to release TMNT for the NES on VC (for awhile)? (or at least that is thought to be the reason it cost an extra dollar while it was available)

I actually e-mailed XSeed about releasing the TG-16 version of Ys IV and they told me they have no rights over them, so there's that. :p

Whoever released the games on the Wii VC can probably handle the releases again.

Depends on the contract and license. It's usually not an "include all"

Ugh this stinks, didn't NoA promise Mario 3 THIS YEAR? Europe gets LTTP and Mario 3 and we get shafted yet again? Time to move to the UK.

Either way, I saw one source with it. What's bizarre is how neither VC game has a page on Nintendo's site, so it will be covered with salt until the official release
