I'm sure this has been discussed a lot, but why is releasing Earthbound Zero for NES on Virtual Console completely impossible? Is it the same licensing issues that people say Earthbound for SNES has? If they already have the prototype translated into English, I think putting it in the ambassador program for people that are clearly big fans would be a great idea. Heck just put it on VC to buy and I'd pay 20 or 30 bucks.

@rift - Well, then they'd need to code the emulator, no?

True, but they should be able to do that pretty quickly, especially since they already have similar emulators on the Wii Shop Channel/eShop.

@Squiggle55: It's really, really complicated. Licensing issues is definitely a major part of it.

@Rift - Actually, I just remembered something. I was reading an interview in NP with Yuki Naka (Sonic, Ivy the Kiwi?), and he mentioned something about finding a bug in a game Sega was porting for the Wii's VC, so there probably is something more than an emulator running VC games on the Wii (and presumably the 3DS). Also, for the NES games with multiplayer, they're releasing the multiplayer update at a later date, so if they were just straight up using an emulator, why couldn't they code the emulator to run NES/GBA/whatever multiplayer into it when they were first porting the games?

Exactly.

No, that's Kirby's Dreamland, and it FAILS.

I beg your pardon, sir? Surely I misheard you or you meant to say "Kirby's Dream Land is awesome."

Haven't you noticed that you can't swallow things? I wasted my 3.99

Kirby's Dreamland didn't have the now-signature copy ability, no. You can't blame the game for that just because it came out before that time, right?

Okay, sorry. But I just don't enjoy it as much as Kirby's Adventure, or his DS titles.

I'm really looking forward to super circuit.

I was little, and an idiot back when I first got it. I thought it would be exaclty like mario kart on the N64.
...
I had no concept of hardware back then.

Then just don't download the ones you already own lol I own a few of the GBA games too, but I'm not gonna lug my DS Lite around just to play them. I can't wait to download them all to play on my 3DS. It'll be as easy as tapping their icons on the main menu. It's convenient and easy. Much easier than carrying two systems and a game case for each just to play a game that could be saved onto my 3DS.

Good point. I'd be like after I got my Game Boy Color. I still had a working Game Gear at the time.

Maybe I'll sell off my DS.

@StarFox: I also don't understand why you wouldn't download Mario Vs. Donkey Kong or WarioWare. MvDK is in the same series, but a different game than any subsequent DS ones... if you like the premise, why not get another one?

And WarioWare is NOTHING like Wario Land. Why would waiting on a different game stop you, anyway. They're not exclusive. And they're all FREE!

I just personally see no reason why someone who had the memory space on their SD card to get them all wouldn't do so. Even if you wouldn't play one much, maybe you have a friend who would like to try it for the first time. Besides, you can't beat the price of FREE.

Oh, and did I mention:

They're free?

Besides, the GBA Mario vs Donkey Kong is like a souped up version of Donkey Kong on gameboy, and therefore nothing like the DS versions (which totally rock anyway!!)

I'm totally with you on that. I just don't et how you could pass up downloading them when you have the space... I have some friends who got 2 free Playstations games from PSN after the hacking attack and one of the only downloaded one and the other none. I just don't get it.

@pntjr Because copy-abilities are the only good thing about Kirby.

I wonder if we can send the GBA games to people who get 3DSes after August 12th through the upcoming transfer system.

Doubtful if you want to keep them
