Japan Virtual Console Gets Mario Kart 64

Posted by Anthony Dickens

Nintendo set to release another classic onto the Virtual Console, only in Japan for now though.

IGN.com have reported on some new releases appearing on the Japanese Virtual Console this month and they are right to be annoyed!

"The Japanese Virtual Console lineup has the American and European ones squarely beaten, and it keeps on getting better! Today, Nintendo Japan announced part of its January lineup for the system. Two words: Mario Kart. Or, if you like, four words: Mario Kart and Fire Emblem. Actually, six words: Mario Kart, Fire Emblem and Kid Icarus."

It seems alittle unfair that Nintendo should release different games in different regions at different times, can't we just all play together!? Hopefully the US or Europe will see the real Mario Kart before the other regions!

We expect that Nintendo will release Mario Kart 64 in our English regions very shortly, but never soon enough!

I can't wait. I'm still suprised there hasn't been a Wii Mario Kart announced. It is still nice to hear some new Wii news early this year.
