My point is that we don't really need to be, we just are.

What's stopping NOA from releasing 3?

Localization and Licensing takes awhile... Also sometimes NOA will hold onto a title to release it close to another in the series to promote it, kinda like what they did with Metroid on Wii when Metroid Prime 3 was being released.

Next week has Super Ghouls n Ghosts, Super Mario Bros. 2, and Super Metroid which already makes it the best week for Wii-U VC so far.

That's a standard I'd like to see kept- 3 releases.

Continuing with the "classic games re-rated by Nintendo likely to appear in the VC":

  • Renegade
  • The Mysterious Murasame Castle

The second in particular is interesting because it has never been released out of Japan. Another game rated in Australia that has never been released here. More and more it looks like we're going to have a Hanabi Festival.

While I think those are 3DS, that's still cool to know. Thanks

Europe's getting the same games NA gets. I wonder if EU and NA will always get the same games from now on, with the exception of the Balloon Fight and Mario Picross switcheroo of course.

Japan's getting Mega Man X, Ikki, and Heracles no Eikō III: Kamigami no Chinmoku (Glory of Heracles III: Silence of the Gods). I'm surprised by the third one because that's the first time Paon did anything in ages.

You'll probably be buying 3 of these very soon.

It turns out the Ghosts 'n Goblins will be coming out on May 31st and next week will be a Kirby week with Kirby Super Star, Kirby's Dream Land 3, and Kirby's Dream Course.

I'm stoked. I'm buying Dream Land 3 next week. Hopefully we'll get some more VC news tomorrow.

I'm considering adding a completely Japan only section, I want to add that when I add it to the 3DS version of this thread at the same time which will take time. I'll do it sometime after I get home from my beach vacation which goes from May 31st to June 8th.
