Good grief, Charlie Brown! Yep sometimes u just gotta dial back the need of continuous new software. We're all in the same boat that looks forward to as many new games as there can be, just gotta replay an old favorite till they hit. Do detail your feedback on club nintendo as they have surveys for VC.

I think the Virtual Console is overrated.

Couldn't agree more. I emailed Nintendo about SMB3 yesterday.

I've seen this far too many times and I'll tell you what they'll tell you. "Check Nintendo's website because we don't know". Have some patience!

Still have at least 5 games that I want to download off the Wii VC, just hope that they keep the Wii VC service up for another year or two. Once the Wii VC is discontinued then there'll be a bigger need for the Wii U VC to step up, as it is 1 game a week is very poor, 3 a week should be the minimum and even then it would take another 2 years for them to catch up with the total number of Wii VC games that were released, at least in Europe (about 360 were available last time I checked).
Just think how great the VC could be if we had just 3/4 of the best games from the NES, SNES, N64, Gamecube, Master System, Megadrive, Saturn, Dreamcast, Neo Geo, and Turbografx.

I question if they really plan to enrich their virtual console lineup soon. It's certainly very questionable at this point, I can only download greats like urban champion so many times.

You would think with how much love Nintendo has showed Urban Champion over the years that they would at least include one of the fighters in Smash Bros ;)

The other thing to add is that 3rd parties are gonna be harder to tempt this time round, simply because the've already done the work once before with little to no return.
Plus it's gonna be harder to grab sales when there are new games being added to the eShop on the same week.
Nintendo could add different consoles this time round to change things up a bit, plus it woulnd't hurt for them to try emulating the FX chip games again.

Club Nintendo Rewards Virtual Console Wii U Titles , Super Mario Lost Levels and Balloon Fight expire January 12th.
Does anyone know if two more titles will be replacing them as rewards? I'd love to redeem for SNES or better NES games.

Posts may be more salty than Nintended!

They will be replaced with different games. They replace the games each month.

I think why SMB3 is in Europe is because of poor Wii U sales. Nintendo is trying to make UK gamers remember the NES more than the ZX Spectrum or the Master System. Like the Xbox is failing in Japan, the Wii U is failing in the UK because they've been ignored since the 80s there.

I just don't like how everything except Earthbound is just a rerelease of something already on the Wii VC while they act like they're new VC releases. The entire Wii VC is already available on the Wii U, people! Just get the games off of there, then apply the free update and go back to them whenever one of the enhanced Wii U versions is released.

They say Wii U, but it's still just Wii Shop Channel games. Look at the page description. It says you'll need to go into Wii mode to play them.

First of all, the updates aren't free. It's a dollar and $1.50 for SNES which is a problem for many people.
Second, that's the thing. What else is there to add? Some obscure shmups and platformers? We got freakin' Earthbound finally, and Final Fantasy "lll" is already on their too. Only thing I can think of off the top of my head is Comtra.

The Wii's Virtual Console was strong for the first few years.

And then the Well dried up, support was pulled, and now we're even seeing games pulled off the service from time to time rather than added to it. And that was when they weren't adding any features other than a very basic save state function to the games, on a console with far more sales. So please tell me, why should we expect Nintendo to devote a lot of time and effort to the Wii U Virtual Console?

The virtual console does not make enough money or even grab enough attention to dedicate a large team to it. That wouldn't even be necessary.

You both essentially said the same thing. The truth is, of course they aren't making as much money as they could, since there aren't enough compelling titles. If they add more games to the lineup, it will draw new fans, and they were purchase more.

They don't need a large team, a pretty small one is all that's necessary.

...and they already have one, last I checked. They're the ones who tweak the emulator for every game, and then test each game to make sure it runs the games the release correctly, then fix whatever happens to be broken. For all we know, that team could consist of two people, but if that's all Nintendo can afford to devote, then I don't see that team growing much any time soon.

i can understand why they didnt, but i really wish that nintendo had just utilized some of the free open source emulators that are out there. people have dedicated years and years to making and improving these for literally nothing other than their love of video games. nintendo could've saved a ton of time and not annoyed so many nerd fans like us by lacking basic features we're used to in the regular emulators. i remember being able to mess around with the layers in snes games like 10 years ago, imagine if nintendo could utilize that for 3d classics.
