There's a real reason for why Yoshi's Island and Sar Fox not being released on the Wii's VC. It has trouble emulating the games due to the Super Chip or whatever its called.

I have a hard time believing that's the case. Plenty of SNES emulators have been able to run Yoshi's Island for a long time.

The only reason I'd really accept is that Nintendo cannot get the emulation perfect, and do not want to release games that don't run properly.

I used to have a blog link here. I'll put it back up when the blog has something to read.

Nu-uh, it's got no Touch Fuzzy Get Dizzy! That makes all the difference!:P And Believe me, I know people who refuse to play the GBA version because it lacks this feature. Nevermind that it has 8 Bonus levels.

WHAT!? :(
Thanks a lot Mac! I didn't even play it and you already ruined it for me! Good thing it was free.

If i remember right, the whole "can't emulate the SuperFX chip games" thing has never been confirmed, that's just been speculation that has been perpetuated over and over again when the question comes up.

A lot of other SNES emulators can also be very glitchy and whatnot too, I've dealt with them before. And it gets VERY glitchy when running on Yoshi's Island. The Super FX Chip (I think is its name) is the only reason....the Wii simply cannot emulate it, so Yoshi's Island and/or Star Fox never got rereleased. They could fix the issue with the Wii U, who knows.

I love Erica (Strike Witches), Eureka (Eureka Seven), and Tenma (School Rumble), stay away from them. xD
Update: Also love Yukari and Mizore from Rosario + Vampire.
Another Update: Also Yuuki...from School Rumble...
Yet Another Update: Also Amber and Xiao Pai from Rune Factory 4.

It also replaced Yoshi's "floating" sound effect with the fairly-annoying groaning noise from Yoshi's Story.

It's a sound theory at least. It took emulators decades to get it down. I wouldn't be surprised if Nintendo was having trouble with it, too. I hear Nintendo's using a small team, after all.

well, i don`t know why nintendo don`t just release recoded versions of the super fx games instead. i`m sure most people would be happy to buy the whole bunch on a retail disk or individualy on wiiware instead. heck, they could finish up star fox 2 while they`re at it.

How about remakes of Star Fox 1 & 2 for 3DS on one cartridge with similar graphics to Star Fox 64 3D but still plays the same as the SNES games?

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

Even the first game alone would be worth full price.

The problem is that they didn't release it while there was still strong demand. Heck, I'm sure the demand for it is still there, if only they'd actually release it. I'm sure they could make enough money to make up for the man hours. Unfortunately, it seems they're either saving it, or gave up on it.

That would be inconvenient, though. I'm sure if they absolutely must play it, though could buy it, but there's plenty of people in the middle ground, too.

Of course there is. I was more pointing it at people who complain day after day about not having certain games on the VC.

To be fair, Yoshi's Island SNES and the Quintet Trilogy (lol, just realised how weird that sounds) have a pretty steep price these days. But yeah, I know what you're saying. If they need it that badly, there are other ways to play, even if they're not the best choices.
