Do you think it'll last? Or just a few games then back to the usual drought?

tbh, i hope nintendo doesn`t let things slide for that long again. it was silly of them to do so in the first place.

I'm glad to see Neo Geo games. I feel confident North America wil get Metal Slug 3, Super SF 2, Double Dragon 2, and some more Monster World games before we hit another drought.

I would love to see Art of Fighting 3 arrive in the US because its currently availible on Japan's VC and its one of my favorite SNK fighters.

i am hoping it lasts and that it's not one of the phases where they release 3 games each week for 3 months, then there is nothing for the next 3, 4 months.

i also hope more developers have a word with nintendo and persuade them to put their old games on the V.C.

Revival or decline? How many games has the VC lost or is scheduled to lose lately compared to those it has added between all regions?

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

The VC is dying, not being revived. When Japan's VC is having Sonic games removed, then that's a sign that something's terribly wrong.

How can you say theres a VC revival when games are being removed from VC? In the past few weeks they have removed twice as many games as they added to the service.

Yeah there is no revival here just a slow agonizing death.

It'll probably keep going even into the Wii U. They probably just want to space out the releases for that. Maybe I'm naive but I'm hopeful.

A joke thread? Sure the VC is still "alive", but it's moving two steps forward, three steps back.

i can understand if nintendo are clearing out the games that don`t sell well, they`re just wasting space and could be replaced by better games.
but, considering that there really has been no official reason why games are being removed, it just confuses the matter and rumours have obviously been flying around on the reasons why.
WW has had games pulled too, so i`m just kind of thinking that if there are games we want to get from the wii shop, it`s fime to start buy them up before they go.

The only other thing I can think of is that when Nintendo gets the ok to put these games on VC the companies behind the game only sign a contract for a certain length of time and decide not to renew it.

Like take the Sonic games for example maybe Sega only signed like a 5 year deal or something like that to have the games on VC but it didnt get the sales they were hoping so they decided not to renew the contract.

As far as games like the Ninja Turtles game I can almost guarantee that those were removed because of Nickelodeon now owning total rights to the TMNT franchise.

Apparently games being removed = revival. Gotta get that bad blood out, I see.
