Topic: What's next for VC Arcade?

Posts 1 to 20 of 64


I am hoping for Shinobi the most, that would be a day one purchase. What old arcade games would you like to see on the Virtual Console?

Too many to mention! I hope Sega will give us some System 16 goodness!

I'd like to see:

Dynamite Duke
Zero Wing
Golden Axe: Revenge of Death Adder
DD Crew (awesome old-school Final Fight style brawler from Sega, cruelly ignored)
Shadow Dancer
Elevator Action Returns loads of others that I can't think of right now as my brain is putty.

I'd like to see a couple of these:

Mr. Do's Castle
Donkey Kong
Donkey Kong Jr.
Mario Bros.

That will keep me happy for the time being.

Plain old gamer :)


Definitely Mario Kart Arcade GP (2) in some form or another!

I'm saying Marble Madness is going to be out soon, because if it's not released, my fist will NOT be happy.

Bubble Bobble
Donkey Kong
Final Fight
Ghosts 'n Goblins
Ghouls 'n Ghosts
Haunted Castle (To see others' reactions )
Super Punch-Out!!
Youkai Douchuuki (As import)

And it'll never happen, but I'd like to see Konami's licensed beat 'em ups - TMNT, Asterix, Cadillacs & Dinosaurs...

Then someone needs to wake up Ubisoft and get them to hug Konami and bring them out. Of course, NoA/E may be real "meh" about the whole thing anyway.

There's so much potential with the VCA I have no idea what surprises could be in store. I can't wait to see how SEGA plans to support it. For example, if Sonic the Fighters/Sonic Championship came to VCA, I'd get it in an instant. There's just so much I'd love to see.



Golden Axe the Revenge of Death Adder, that is what I want to see anyway, I wonder if they will release Bank Panic, ok maybe not one of Sega's most well known arcade games, but it was one of the First games I owned on the MS and it wasn't bad, the arcade version looks even better.



I would love to see the uncensored Splatterhouse, Golden Axe:Revenge of Death Adder, Paperboy, Burger time, Dragon's Lair, Double Dragon, and Outrun

I would like to see:

L.A. Machineguns: Rage of the Machines
Virtua Cop trilogy (3 probably won't come until next Nintendo system's VCA)
House of the Dead trilogy (2 & 3 might have to wait until next Nintendo system)
Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3
NARC (The emulation in Midway Arcade Treasures 2 isn't that good.)
Rampage: World Tour (We might get the N64 version instead. Again, emulation in Midway Arcade Treasures 2 isn't that good.)
Cyber Sled
Ridge Racer series
Street Fighter Alpha trilogy
S.T.U.N. Runner (It runs WAY too fast in Midway Arcade treasures 3)
Gauntlet: Dark Legacy (Probably not until next Nintendo system)


TMNT, Street Fighter Alpha series, Daytona U.S.A.



I doubt we´ll see any 3D games... or games from the 21:th century at all. But Nintendos own arcade games would be cool. Bring us the real Donkey Kong.



I would love NoA and NoE to actually release VCA games. Thats all. >.>



My wish list is too massive to post here (shameless plug*/ but it is on my blog /*shameless plug).

At a minimum I'd like to see Space Harrier for the moment: it's out on the Japanese VCA and I like it enough to make a purchase. I'd have done so already, but I'm hoping all PAL/NA releases will continue to be only 500 points, which will save me a bit on the Japanese side. I did get Genpei Toumaden this week because I figured that was unlikely to get an overseas release since I don't think the arcade game ever did officially.

Marble Madness
Ms. Pac-man
Raiden (any of them)'s been too long since I've been to an arcade. I forgot what else I used to play!

Come on, friends,
To the bear arcades again.


Donkey Kong, full arcade version

Now for the Arcade games we probably wont see, but would be a dream come true if we could:
Golden Axe: Revenge of Death Adder
Final Fight, one with co-op (is there such a one? I think I recall one.... not sure anymore)
Simpsons Arcade, without a doubt one of the most played games in my local Chuck E Cheese
TMNT the Arcade game. the REAL one, not that NES port.



Not old enough to have played any of these in arcades, but I own a galaxian arcade cabinet which has been broken for quite some time, and would love if it came to VCA.
