Why can't Nintendo release them. I know that Star Fox used the Super FX chip but there's no excuse for SMK and the original Contra!

Honestly, Star Fox shouldn't be too hard to put on there. The rom runs in all the emulators I've used perfectly. Maybe Nintendo's just a bunch of lazy - well you know

But I hear you, Contra should've been long on there, and there's no logical reason to not have SMK on there when MK64 is on.

Nintendo is probably just hanging on to SF and SMK (not to mention Yoshi's Island) so they have some first-party games left to release on special occasions. But I don't understand what Contra has to do with it. Nintendo didn't make Contra, so it's not entirely up to them. Plus, there are a ton of games not out. Patience is key.

The befuddling thing is that Super C was released before Contra - Maybe to introduce people to an easier version? I dno, but it should be out by now. Contra is much better than Super C.

Yeah, Super C was one of my more disappointing downloads. I remember playing with a mate as a kid and loving it, but it didn't live up to my memories

I keep reading that Super C is supposed to be the easiest game, but I don't understand where you guys get that from! A friend I played it quite a few times and can't even get to the end of level 1.
Contra III (SNES) is much easier, and we got pretty far into level 3 a few times.

The first NES Contra was included on Contra 4 for DS, but lacked multiplayer. I do not know why it is taking so long to release this gem on VC.

@Adam, I've heard Contra: The Hard Corps for Genesis was the most difficult for fans. I’ve never played Hard Corps, so I can’t say for myself.

Yeah, same here - I think it's the top-view levels. Those are so boring.

Yeah, I can get much farther in the first Contra... (Stage 4-2) mainly because of the 99 life cheat Super C was harder because you only get a 30 life cheat.

Super C is unlockable as well in Contra 4.

Why is there no contra? I just went on the shop and tried to download it, but it was nowhere to be found! Yet they have Contras 2 and 3 on there?......Why?

I've Never played contra or contra 2, but i have contra 3 the alien wars and i use to have super c. i also have operation c, but that is not the topic. I think that they should put those games on there. those are the originals, and they are not putting thaem on there? interesting.

Also, is contra 3 the same as contra 3 the alien wars? IDK.

I came to this site a while ago to meet people that played The Conduit, and I stayed because the community was pretty rad, according to thirteen-year-old me. Feel free to hit me up if you want to chat and/or play some vidya.

Super Mario Kart and Starfox are taking way too long to get on the VC.

I've played SMK and SF on ZSNES. But playing the ROM doesn't feel satisfying.

Super Mario Kart is one of the best games I've ever played. Star Fox is good. But it's one of the few Nintendo series where I don't think an NES / SNES title is the best in the series. There are some things I like better about it than the 64 version, but ultimately the insane difficulty of it makes it a little less satisfying -- though I seem to remember being a lot better at it when I was a kid... perhaps I just lied about beating it so often that I now believed I did.

Although I will download all three when they arrive, I do hope the original NES Contra (not arcade Contra); ...Probotector to us, comes first. It is after all my very first NES game.

Edgey, Gumshoe, Godot, Sissel, Larry, then Mia, Franziska, Maggie, Kay and Lynne.

I'm throwing my money at the screen but nothing happens!

SMK is supposed to come out soon. I believe it is already out in japan.
