Has anyone looked at the upcoming Virtual Console list for North America? It mentions fifty games with at least some sort of evidence supporting that it's coming to the Virtual Console (Not including Micheal Jackson's Moonwalker, since the PEGI rating has been removed. Nintendo Life staffs, could you remove that game already from the upcoming list?). This is based off pure memory, but around the first no-VC delimma, it had fifty-two upcoming games mentioned.

Remembering this piece of information, I don't think we can explain the lack of VC games recently with "Less and less games can be made available on the service.". Since we have at least fifty games that may come up on the VC eventually, I think the reason for the lack of the VC games recently is a lot more complicating and prehaps a reason that will be difficult to accept.

No I'm not suggesting that Nintendo has malicious intents for the Virtual Console, not at all. As a matter of fact, I think the reason why we're in such a long drought is due to Nintendo's bad management of the VC early on by overly-supporting the Virtual Console in it's early years.

Then you'll probably say "How would that be bad management?". The reason why I say that it's bad management is because they realized that they only had a limited amount of games they can bring on the Virtual Console without much problems and by releasing three to four games during it's early years, they unknowingly were setting themself up to **** off a lot of Virtual Console fans later on due to the declining amount of releases. Prehaps Nintendo should have released a smaller amount of games (Like one or two) during those early years so prehaps we wouldn't have so much of a drought to start with.

Basically, Nintendo were shooting themself in the foot and now they're paying for it by angry customers reaction.

@SSBF: I don't think that theory makes very much sense. If there are still plenty of games to release, then why would having released "a lot" early on in the VC's lifespan have caused us to be getting almost nothing NOW, before we actually have them all?

Besides which, I subscribe to the belief that they'd have been better off simply releasing any and all games that were ready to go up ASAP instead of trying to spread them out at all. It certainly would have avoided the problem of publishers never knowing when their games would finally release!

Its sad that the vc is slowing down, but there is already so many great games on the service that I wouldn't mind too much if they stopped releasing them altogether.

Don't read this, please..

@TwilightV: Except that if they did close the thread, we would see tons of "NO VC GAMES THREAD!" popping up. It's best to keep this alive so anyone who doesn't wish to complain about the VC can ignore it for the most part.

I know. I already edited my comment. I thought they would put it on the VC page again like they have been lately. Thank you for not doing that NintendoLife.

That would be nice. Question is: What VC Games can we expect...? I'm at a loss.

I think it's possible we could get either Aero the Acrobat 2 or Fatal Fury 3 as our next VC game. Not sure when though.

Well obviously. Nintendo America have stopped doing consecutive weeks of VC games for a long time. Having got U-four-ia last week, nobody really expected anything this week. And its more likely you'll get Aero the Acrobat 2 next time than anything else.

For some reason I thought they'd include a game anyway, mostly because they took long to put up the PR.

Unfortunately, you can't always equate late updates with high content...not even from companies that say that's sometimes the reason like Sony does, much less the tight-lipped jerks at NoA. That said, I thought maybe there'd be an extra-huge deluge of WiiShovelWare, but we didn't even get that.:P

You should know by now that VC games rarely do anything for anniversaries.

The only special games we got because of a particular date was Halloween.
