They would probably fix the typo. They fixed typos and mistranslations in the Zelda 1 VC release. They might keep it in for the sake of nostalgia, though.

Hope they keep it. It'd be like changing "a winner is you" in Pro Wrestling. Wouldn't be the same afterward. LET BIMMY LIVE!!! :)

for some reason i decided not to get this one, im on the fence about it

Its actually a fun game. It plays more like Battletoads more than Double Dragon but it still is fun and its nowhere near as hard as the first Battletoads game. If you do get this one I suggest getting the SNES version as it was the best out of all four of them.

[/div]

i watched the game to the end a few times, still on the fence about it. its definitely leaning towards battletoads over double dragon. theres no way its as hard as the first battletoads game. im not sure ive played it, i may have rented it back in the day.

I'd think if it was a famous typo, they'd leave it in.
Sure the Zelda intros had some wacky English, but I don't think anyone ever really quoted them.
Except for "I AM ERROR.", though some might not have played long enough to find out he actually IS named Error. :P

I never understood why people thought that was a mistake. I never questioned it when I was a kid playing the game. Someone in another town tells you to talk to Error and then when you see Error again he tells you how to get to level 3. I guess most people just found level 3 by accident and never did the whole 'go talk to Error' thing.

believe it or not my real name is actually Error so i thought it was cool to see my name in the game.

A bit off topic, but... everyone talks about Bimmy & Jimmy, but nobody questions this.

What about the Hyper Knee? That was the greatest move ever.

So I think it's safe to say that Double D III is the toughest of 4 in the DD series, but how does 1 rank in comaprison to II in terms of difficulty?
I'd love to get my Bimmy & Jimmy on but the next 2 games i have a date with that would put miss Jessica Rabbit to shame are Super Mario 3D Land and the Mega Drive classic Castle of Illusion B-)

Even though, i'll be getting DDII on the Wii's VC, there's no doubt I'll be picking up the cart as well!

id say dd2 is a LITTLE easier...dd2 has its funny jumps sometimes though. the action is way more intense in it and it just makes for a better game. i see everyones curiosity in dd3 but id have to peep the good way to get through that game, as i seen some major cheating with using the other characters in that game. but back to dd2 i stress: dont forget you have to beat the game on "supreme master" to get the final boss and real ending.

I think the DD2 is the "easiest" of the three because the amount of hits that Billy and Jimmy are able to take in that one. They must have been juicing like Canseco during that time. You get hit with a knife in Double D II and it takes what, one energy bar? Try getting hit with a knife in III. Plus the AI is relentless. Oh well, still as fun as joyriding in the Technodrome though.

I miss Japanese games, the good stuff... Games that are imaginative, have good and unique gameplay, a great soundtrack, and replay value.

@Ryno I agree.
DD3 is the hardest, then DD1 (mostly because of the final level) and then DD2. I'm not sure where SDD would fit in. I almost never beat it when I play it. I usually get to the cliff level or what I believe is the final level (with the elevator that goes all over the place).

If we get Super Double Dragon for the SNES on the virtual console, I'd like to get the Japanese version, as it is the more complete version of the game. It features difficulty levels and enhanced music.
