RPG Titles Dominate Nintendo Power’s Most Wanted List

As we reported a while back, respected US magazine Nintendo Power recently asked Virtual Console fans to submit which games they would like to see on the service in the hope that it would make the Big N sit up and take notice. The results are now in and (unsurprisingly) SNES RPGs dominate.

Here’s the reader’s top 5 most wanted:

  • Earthbound (Super NES)
  • Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars (Super NES)
  • Chrono Trigger (Super NES)
  • Mother (NES/Japan Only)
  • The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask (N64)

The Nintendo Power staff also created their own list:

  • Mega Man: The Wily Wars (Sega Genesis)
  • Terranigma (Super NES)
  • Final Fantasy VI (Super NES)
  • Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars (Super NES)
  • Rocket Knight Adventures (Sega Genesis)

Of course it remains to be seen if Nintendo will actually pay any attention, but with Nintendo Power having such close links with the Japanese giant you can be sure that someone within the marbled halls of the company's HQ will see the magazine.

So what do you think? Any games in those lists that you asked for? Should the VC be flooded with role playing games? As always, your commends are more than welcome…
