The hanabi festival is one of my favourite parts of the virtual consoles because I think it has a much better value proposition than normal VC titles. In the majority of cases I've already played the normal VC titles that I want but I've never played the import games. I really want Nintendo to do a put a lot of import titles on the 3DS VC so I can pick up some (a lot) of classics that Europe missed out on.
What games would you most want to be imported?
The ones I most want are Shantae and the first three SaGa games(or Final Fantasy Legends as they were known).

It's whenever Europe gets import games for the VC.
I don't think Hank done it this way.
Jesus is the only way.
It's OK for someone to have an opinion. This ain't the Soviet Union you know.

Its japanese for fireworks. in VC terms it means that europeans get import games from america for a few weeks. But its more random
Edgey, Gumshoe, Godot, Sissel, Larry, then Mia, Franziska, Maggie, Kay and Lynne.
I'm throwing my money at the screen but nothing happens!

We get import games sometime, no festivals though

The European catalogue must be pretty dismal for European gamers to throw a festival whenever they get a few good VC games.

Huh? So North America doesn't the Hanabi festival? So do the import games comes out at random all the time(in Europe we get some random imports too)...
NOE doing the Hanabe festival is probably a good thing though because it's one of the only promotions Virtual Console actually gets!

@Oregano: Yep, we get import VC games whenever NOA feels like releasing them.

Uhm, they better bring Earthbound Zero to the states (it's completely translated but they held back on releasing it on VC).
I'd hope that maybe Earthbound Zero becomes a 3D Classic. Oh, that's irrelevant to the topic, sorry.
The game sounds interesting. But it seems like a game that would never be imported here.

I hope we get a bunch of imports. the Mother trilogy and the original X which X-scape was a sequel to come to mind.
I don't really give a damn anymore.

I expect Chrono Trigger to be a Hanabi Festival title.

Well it obviously won't happen for the handheld console games as they wern't region locked.
Be excellent to each other

When someone mentions the Hanabi Festival I think the Mother series springs to most players minds, and wouldn't that be great in 3D? I mean even if it wasn't I'd be happy, as long as I get to play the game in English!
