Donkey Kong (it looks to be the existing NES version, not the "Original Edition" update that has only been released so far as a promotional giveaway), Rockman 4 and Castlevania (FDS version).

Ok I don't feel like I'm missing anything from Japan this week :D since I'll get Original Editon after Paper Mario Comes out, I wonder if if you can DL both original and NES versions?

Three NES games! So, have they pretty much forsaken the GB, GBC, & GG libraries, lol?

Nothing I'm too interested in. Not that these games are bad (they're actually very good), but after trying out my ambassador games, I'm just not interested in playing NES games on my 3DS for some reason.

Its always good to have a triple game week, but seriously, not even one of them is from a handheld system.

@RR529 I wouldn't go as far as to say they've "forsaken" anything. Mario Golf GB for the Game Boy Color was just released last week, We had Last Bible II for the GBC, G-LOC AIR BATTLE for the GG, and Kaeru no tame ni kane ha naru for the Game boy all released last month. Putting just those releases together, that still rivals what other regions get, we just get tons of NES/Famicom games thrown out there as well.

I wouldn't be opposed to more games from handheld systems though. There are quite a few I'd like to get.

I'm not opposed to Famicom games either. I'm still waiting on a few of the more obscure ones just in case they get released on the 3DS VC. Fire Emblem Gaiden, Super Mario USA, Devil World, Famicom Wars, Final Fantasy III (The only Final Fantasy I never got to play), and some of those point and click mystery games like Famicom Tantey Club.

I think they're trying to get all of the Megaman games out as fast as they can before the anniversary, though I'm not sure why. They only have one left. I'm sure they'll start the GB ones up on the service again soon as well.

Yeah, BTW I'm still a bit put off by Donkey Kong being on the next update. Megaman and Castlevania are fine, but couldn't they have paired those with one of the GBC games or GG games we've been waiting for. Japan still doesn't have Mole Mania yet. :(

I see. Well, either way, it just feels like wasted potential. Like I said, for me there is a positive side to this, since I didn't even get to play a lot of these games in English when I was a kid, so getting to play the original versions is nice. I think...Other than Super Mario Bros 2 and Fire Emblem, I haven't gotten any of the Famicom games yet. There are some I'd like to play though. I would still prefer GBC (and of course GBA) games.

They could possibly be working on getting multiplayer for all GB/GBC VC games for the next update so they're bringing out Famicom games (which already have multiplayer) to keep JP 3DS owners occupied until then, but don't get your hopes up, that's just a wishful thinking theory that I came up with 2 minutes ago.

Well knowing Nintendo they'll release the next major update on Dec 8th World Wide (day the WiiU is released in Japan) they would probably need the WiiU available EVERYWHERE 1st before they can add the Miiverse and any other updates so we'll see :)

Japan's only game this week is Mario Picross 2 for Game Boy. I didn't even know they made a Mario Picross 2!

For their "3DSware" game, Japan is getting Family Golf 3D in addition to Mario Picross 2 (GB) as their VC.

This and Trip World would be great imports for NA.

In Europe and Australia, the imports would be Mario Picross 2, Shantae, Quarth, and maybe SMB2J Lost Levels (the last one is confirmed for NA but it's unknown if it will use an import label again or not since it came out on the Wii's VC here)

Actually this one is just called "Picross 2", the Mario was dropped in the title after the first one for some reason.

That makes sense. We already got our GBC game for the month, so this is our GB game for October. Its been (fairly) consistent since spring, at least one GB game, one GG game, and one GBC game each month with a bunch of Famicom games. So next week should be a GG game and maybe another Famicom game. :)

@Harmoknight Are you sure about your tagline? It looks like the first third party retail download is (embarrassingly) AKB48+Me, from Kadokawa games (I didn't even know Kadokawa was in the video game business). The sad thing is, just from my friends doing karaoke, I know the lyrics to some of the songs on that list they have on the e-shop page. :( Where did you hear about Samurai Warriors Chronicle 2nd coming out on the 25th?

Also, another bit of craziness, the price of the AKB48 game is insane.

We also finally got a new demo! ExTroopers! :)

Kadokawa even published Super Famicom games. The first being Record of Lodoss War (another RPG with SRPG random encounters) and Youkai Buster Ruka (which was originally a Jetsons game, until they replaced George with an anime girl with her own oni-Kirby pet :D ).

Quarth was technically released in Europe, as "Block Game" on the compilation Konami GB Collection Vol.2 for GBC (EU got the series GBC-enhanced, while Japan got it only SGB-enhanced and North America didn't get them at all). But most likely if Konami does release Quarth in EU on VC, it would be the standalone monochrome version.

And while you guys are all happy with your game gear games in Japan, I'll be crying in a corner at the fact that our two promised game gear games from around 4 MONTHS ago have been sitting in the coming soon section collecting dust. Contacting Sega by email just gave me a "We don't comment on rumors", when THEY ARE IN THE SHOP.

Also, I honestly hope you don't get the Konami GB collections. Why? One of them includes that stupid Goemon game where your only weapon are potatoes.

@TheDreamingHawk Yeah...I did notice that. Its pretty bad to include something like that in a video for a promotion, and then not put it up. Neither of those GG games had a release date for the summer promotion, so I had figured they would be in the last week...but we're in the middle of October now.

I'm pretty happy with what we're getting in Japan, though I'd really like more of a push with the GBC and GG games now. There's quite a few I'd like, and of course...not to try and put a curse on us all by speaking blasphemy, but...you know...GBA games would be awesome. :(

There's still a few VC games that Japan is waiting for, namely Mole Mania for the GB and Prince of Persia for the GBC (though that one might not come out here. Also NA is getting Ghosts and Goblins before us, so yeah...that's one I'd consider getting.

@KingMike I guess I'm just so used to thinking of Kadokawa as a film company.

@Harmoknight Still no news on Samurai Warriors, so I don't think that's coming out next week, but they just updated the e-shop (in a rarity since its outside of an update day) with the news that Pokemon Dungeon is coming next month.

You don't need a Japanese 3DS to see what's on there. I've looked at the NA Nintendo website, and they are really lacking compared to the detailed, constantly updated and organized website we have.

I'm not sure what your Japanese reading level is, but all the games with the red text are the retail downloads. They have the higher price tags of course.
