Japanese Virtual Console List

Posted by James "Cockburn" White

Nintendo has released the launch list for the Japanese virtual console.

Today Nintendo has announced the final Japanese launch list, boasting an impressive 39 titles!

Of course I doubt this list will be of much use to anyone. Most people will be importing from America. This can be used as a good reference to compare the different areas. Hopefully Nintendo will release more Nintendo 64 games.

Here are the games I want on my US console:

NES
Super Mario Bros.
Gradius

SNES (no castlevania 4!?)
Super Mario World
Zelda: A Link to the Past
Contra Spirits

Megadrive
Gunstar Heroes
Shadow Dancer (a personal fave!)

PC Engine
R-Type I (WHAT not just the 1st four levels like on the original hu-card!!?)

For the reasons James states about US importers I don't think the Virtual Console Archive shall be keeping up to date with the JPN releases. Shame but you know it will just end up being one Mahjong game after another!! ^_^
