Square-Enix owns it, since it's a Taito property. I'd suspect Taito owns the translation, since the same translation was used in both Natsume's US release and Nintendo's PAL release (though the PAL version had multiple single-language releases).I'd love to see it, but hopefully they'd fix the bugs in the US version (or give us the PAL version, which fixed the serious ones and a few minor ones).I do await to see what comes first if they do release the two games on Virtual Console. II came first story-wise, and it's gameplay is pretty great for SNES.On the other hand, I's gameplay was pretty dated for SNES (you can't even choose the specific target for each attack), but it was still worth it for the writing and music.

Okay, so Square Enix is more or less active on the Virtual Console. I'd say there's more of a chance that it'll be released than if Natsume owned it. Here's hoping.
I'm not very interested in the "remake". I wish they kept the old-school gameplay and just gave it a graphical revamp.
I made Kid Tripp! PocketGamer gave it a 9 out of 10! You should totally buy it now!

I watched that trailer. It looks like it'd make an interesting NEW game, but it just seems like they bastardized a SNES classic.
What happened with Natsume on VC, anyway? They released like...one or two games, then nothing. On the other hand, while Squenix IS active on VC, most of the games have been Japan-only lately. So I doubt the odds are really very good either way.

Well, perhaps if some interest starts circulating the interwebs, that'll increase the chances. Maybe we could threaten to boycott something?

Boycotting NoE subconsciously, perhaps?
26. Posted: Wed 23rd Dec 2009 05:38 GMT
Yes, because Squenix has a history of releasing VC games based on online demand.

@Digiki: Anyone not in Europe is not relying on Nintendo of Europe anyway for Nintendo products.

@SSBF: Mostly true. I had to rely on them for Tingle's Rosy Rupeeland, though. I wonder if they're planning to release the second Tingle game in Europe...
Anyway, I'm pretty sure he was just joking.

I heard Lufia II has a good soundtrack. Is it alright to listen to a few tracks from a game you haven't played yet?

@StarBoy: I don't see why not. Good music is good music, whether it's attatched to memories of a game in your mind or not.

Oh, good to know. 'cause I heard a few songs from the game, and what I've heard sounded amazing.

Doesn't sound like there's a whole lot to release.According to the Game Developer Research Institute, much of their NES dev was contracted/licensed games.Possible releases (stuff published by Natsume or Taito): SCAT/Action in New York, Shadow of the Ninja/Blue Shadow, Power Blade (although I hear Taito Japan wasn't happy Taito America made in an attempt to de-suck their Japanese game, Power Blazer), Spanky's Quest, Pocky & Rocky 1/2, Wild Guns, Ninja Warriors, Natsume Championship WrestlingMaybe Shatterhand, but Jaleco published it, and aren't they sorta-dead?

Jaleco has released some VC games, though...I specifically recall seeing them on the Publishers list on the Shop Channel.
Otherwise, your post is very informative, KingMike. I didn't realize just how little IP Natsume actually owns. Nowadays, they seem to do pretty much nothing BUT Harvest Moon, but I didn't think it was because that's all they have free reign for.

Still craving it. Still need it. Virtual console release where are you??

The chances of any new Wii VC releases is very small at this point.

Sengoku 3 was the last game at this point with a very active Neo Geo service at that moment. I wished always KOF 00 and later editions.

At this point, it would end up coming to the Wii U VC. I wouldn't hold my breath for a western release though. Square Enix has released nothing on the Wii U VC outside of Japan yet.

Not even King's Knight, probably one of the least-wanted games from them?

It's pretty cheap on Amazon if you really want it...

Me? I just remember I got mine free years ago from GameStop B2G1, because I was glad to get the game at something approaching fair price.
