If your a virtual console fan, now its a time to talk about why Nintendo is slowing down the process. Apparently, they are not really making stuff easy because they are making ROM files (.nes is the NES game file,.gba is Game Boy Advance, etc.) , and .app files (Nintendo 3DS SD Card directory.) from scratch. Usually, from scratch is when you make it all over again. Japan, well, is another story. They make things easier, and don't make it from scratch (They usually copy the Virtual Console directories, edit them, and sell the copied one.). Anyway, why are they doing this? I mean, come on, Nintendo! Japan is making it easier! While Reggie Fils-Aime is making it harder. Can we, well... do something? Make up your mind by emailing them at their website by contacting them (At the bottom of the Home Page), and calling them at their number by 1-800-255-3700. Leave any comments down below for any questions.

well some copy/change a little/paste games have the bugs the old ones had, or annoying screen flashing when it shouldn't(I'm looking at you Megaman 2 3DS VC) so I kind of like the fact it's made from "scratch"(save for the graphics I'm sure)

looking forward to Codename S.T.E.A.M.

I like how people still think that Reggie actually has some sort of say over the inner workings of Nintendo proper. Nothing he says or does is ever going to trump NIntendo of Japan, and when they make the bonehead calls, he always gets the blame.

Don't worry, Reggie, I'd still sit down and drink an adult beverage with you, even if people like 18SEVERLY wouldn't.*

Geesh, two members of staff and an administrator are on this. Philip is right, this could become something big. If I read this correctly, I'm pretty sure that he's saying that Japan is releasing the Virtual Console games faster because they edit the ROM files while in the west we just do think from the beginning all the time. I knew that there was a reason other than Nintendo taking eight months just to translate a game that's ten to thirty years old.

really??? that's sad(that is, if you have solid sources to prove it, no hard feelings I just don't want to believe in this info as it would be kind of lame if it was true) direct copies from roms are filled with the bugs from the original one.....


EDIT
and what the guy who posted just before me said too.

Only one I know for certain is identical.

I know the 50hz optimized versions are a joke on Wii U also. (i.e Kirby where they speed hacked Kirby but not the enemies).

And Super Ghouls and Ghosts Wii U is still riddled with slowdown.

And that if they put any effort into anything they charge full price again - (Wind Waker HD).

All the glitches that are present on the NES versions that I know about are still present on my versions. (i.e I can get to the Minus World on Super Mario Bros).

Saying that they use ROMs for Japan and completely reprogram the games from scratch for the rest of the world is just ridiculous. And I'm pretty sure the people in this thread going along with it are just kidding.

If you want Super Ghouls 'n Ghosts without slowdown, you will need to get Capcom Classics Collection Volume 1 for PS2/Xbox. That is a rewritten port that removes the slowdown (well, I hear it's actually a port of the JP/EU PS1 port).

So, is SMB on WiiU VC still the PAL version (which overcompensated for the speed difference so it's actually faster than the NTSC version)?

Why don't people just stop complaining that Nintendo is releasing games too slowly, and just be greatful that they even offer a virtual console service.
Or, you know, maybe go play some games during the wait, instead of complaining about it.
And we can't expect everyone at Nintendo to be as talented as @Phillip_J_Reed. u___u

This thread needs to be closed because no one has proof, WWHD they change the graphics, added a hard mode, miiverse and even first person(the price is 40$). I think they slowly put V.C games because that not there priority they have bigger problems then add a 15 year old mario game to a 2013 console. :) <3
