What Nintendo games do you want to see on the Virtual Console?

Posted by Corbie Dillard

It's time to let Nintendo know what games you want to see on the Virtual Console.

The Virtual Console release schedule has tapered off quite a bit lately, but we can't help but think that there are still quite a few games that could and should see a release on the service at some point.

Nintendo's become one of the most popular game developers in the industry and have quite a storied history over the years in both arcades and on their various home game consoles. So now it's time to let Nintendo know which of their games we want to see made available on the Virtual Console.

Given the overwhelming reader response to our call to let SEGA know what you want and let Capcom know what you want features, we figured we'd keep the train rolling.

With the Virtual Console Arcade platform firmly in place, classic 80's Nintendo arcade titles like Donkey Kong, Donkey Kong Jr., Donkey Kong 3, Popeye, and the original Mario Bros. seem like the perfect fit for the Virtual Console service. Sure we've seen NES versions of some of these games released on the service already, but there's nothing quite like the real thing and there's really no reason not to release these timeless arcade classics.

There are also still a few Nintendo first-party console titles left for the taking. Earthbound (SNES) has been a title fans have been clamoring for since the inception of the Virtual Console service, and Yoshi's Island (SNES) comes up fairly often in various Virtual Console discussions as well. We know there are some possible licensing issues with Earthbound and Yoshi's Island makes use of the special Super FX 2 chip, but it would seem that a company with the clout and experience of Nintendo would be able to get past these minor roadblocks if they truly wanted to.

Well we've rambled on about the Nintendo classics we'd like to see brought to the Wii Virtual Console service and now we want to hear what you have to say. Here's your chance to tell Nintendo what first-party games you'd like to see made available on the Virtual Console service. Let your voice be heard! Who knows, they might even listen.

On behalf of the Nintendo Life community, let me be the first of many to say; I want Earthbound!



SSBbrawler08 said:

well, i know its not COMPLETELY nintendo...but
Banjo Kazooie
because my N64 version is wako



KnucklesSonic8 said:

Will they really listen? You guys passing it onto people in the Marketing departments like with Capcom?

Things like this have happened in the past but Nintendo hasn't always listened so don't mind me for the cautious skepticism.

Hopefully I'll get a reply but if not, I'll be making a big list. But I will say right now that Mario Party 1-3 are absolute musts.



MetalMario said:

Well, if they are going to see it...

Nintendo, I want Super Smash Bros., Super Mario Kart, Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island, EarthBound, and Tetris Attack (or import Panel de Pon. I know Pokemon Puzzle League is there, but I already have that one for N64.)



Corbs said:

The powers that be will see this list of comments. So this is at least a chance. Take it or leave it.



LuigiandYoshifan said:

Super Smash Brothers
Super Mario Kart
Mario Party 1-2-3
Mario Kart Super Circuit
Knuckles Chaotix
Mario Tennis



JaredJ said:

Mario Party 1-3
Yoshis Island

Would also like GameBoy Advance games to be made available on Virtual Console.



theberrage said:


Ken Griffey Baseball SNES


Popeye ? not sure if that was nintendo

Killer Instinct

But mostly Super Mario World 2!!



MetalMario said:

Oh yeah. I forgot Duck Tales and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles IV: Turtles in Time.

They aren't published by Nintendo, but they were on NES and SNES respectively.



WolfRamHeart said:

One of the main reasons I bought a Wii was to be able to play Earthbound on the Virtual Console. Nintendo, please bring Earthbound to the Virtual Console as well as Mother 3!



Corbs said:

First party Nintendo games envisionboy. But I'm with you on the Kid Niki.



TwilightV said:

ANY arcade games
The Mario Party games
Mario Tennis
Some of Rare's games (especially Banjo-Kazooie and DK64!)
Smash Bros.
Both Mother games
Yoshi's Island
Peripheral games (Duck Hunt, Yoshi's Safari)
Pokèmon Stadium series (if possible)
Super Mario All Stars
And imports like Nazo No Murasamejou, Devil's World, and Shin Onigashima.

I'm sure there are a few I can't think of right now, but any would be very much appreciated.

EDIT: I was right! Mario Kart and both Pilotwings added.



KnucklesSonic8 said:

Thanks Corbie. I'll get to work on my list!

@Swiket: It's like the SEGA requests where even just games on SEGA platforms could be suggested. But yeah, obviously the Rare ones won't make it. People are just expressing themselves wishing that there could be a way they'd see the light of day even though they know they're not coming...



MetalMario said:

Yes, the first party games are so awesome. They are truly some of the best games ever made.



Noire said:

Finally, a company that I know well enough to give specific games for. Here goes:
Virtual Console Arcade:
-Donkey Kong
-Donkey Kong Jr.
-Donkey Kong 3
-Mario Bros.
-Super Punch-Out!!
-Dr. Mario (I know there's Online Rx, but I love the original)
-Duck Hunt (If not the original, then a WiiWare remake)
-Devil World
-Joy Mech Fight
-Famicon Wars
-Nazo no Murasamejo
-Fire Emblem: Ankoku Ryu to Hikari no Ken
-Fire Emblem Gaiden
Super Nintendo:
-Super Mario All-Stars
-Super Mario Kart
-Yoshi's Island
-Star Fox
-Star Fox 2 (I know it was never released, but I really would like to see it finished and playable)
-Fire Emblem: Monsho no Nazo
-Fire Emblem: Seisen no Keifu
-Fire Emblem: Thracia 776
-Super Famicon Wars
-Super Smash Bros.
-Mario Party 1-3
-Mario Tennis
-Dr. Mario 64
-Diddy Kong Racing
-Donkey Kong 64
-Custom Robo
-Custom Robo V2
Also a DSi Virtual Handheld. With that, Nintendo, you'd get me to buy one of those shiny new DSi's.
I know many (if not most) have little to no chance of being released, (and there are probably a few that aren't first party) but it's a wish list, and quite possibly my only chance for Nintendo to hear it.
Added a few, namely those Fire Emblems the west has never seen.



Cthuloops said:

Super Smash Bros
EarthBound Zero (Mother)
That's all I can think of atm.



Drake said:

-Donkey Kong (Arcade)
-Mario Tennis (N64)
-Nazo no Murasamejou (NES import)
-Popeye (NES/Arcade - The Popeye license is now public domain so there should be no issues at all)
-Wrecking Crew '98 (SNES import)



thwipp89 said:, that's a blast from the past. i spent a boatload of quarters on the arcade game. wouldn't mind seeing that on the VC.

these aren't nintendo but i REALLY want baseball stars (NES and possibly the neo geo version- BS2 was disappointing).
and the best version of paperboy available.



apocalypse217 said:

skywake said:

Long time reader but just registered to comment because I thought this was a worthy topic to comment.

Wii VC:

  • Unirally (was talked about at launch... what happened?)
  • Super Mario Kart (sits permanently in my SNES in the other room)
  • The Lost Vikings
  • Mario Paint
  • Super Tennis
  • Donkey Kong 64 (never played it)
  • DOS games like Captain Comic, Lemmings, Duke Nukem, Doom


  • Donkey Kong Land (my copy is broken )
  • Mario Tennis GBC (easily one of the best games I played on the GBC)
  • Pokemon...... although haven't we had enough remakes already?
  • Tetris
  • Super Mario Land
    ... would have mentioned Game & Watch but that's already happening


DDWarrior said:

For the love of God, these games need to be released on the virtual console:

Battletanx: Global Assault
Extreme-G 2
Rush 2: Extreme Racing USA.



Kaeobais said:

Mario Party 1-3 and Kirby Superstar. I can't really think of anything else I want on there right now.

Also, I know it's Midway and not ninty, and I'm not even sure midway supports the VC, but Rush 2: Extreme Racing USA is one of the best games EVAR.



Hmmm...well many Nintendo games (like Super Mario Kart and Smash Bros ) were released in another countries so is a bit illogical to name them again because is just a matter of time they will come here. So I'll keep it short

2.-Mario Party 3
3..-Tetris attack (or the SNES Panel de pon, however you wanna call it
4.-Star Fox
5.-Donkey Kong 64
6.-This is almost impossible I know, specially after what happened to Goldeneye, but I would like to see the SNES Killer Instinct. I loved that game!
7.-Eartbound...not that I do care bu there are many that would like it.

Bassman_Q said:

Mother 1 & 2
Also Rare games like Banjo-Kazooie &Tooie & Jet Force Gemini.
Also, a freakin' Virtual Handheld for the DSi!!! Someone please give me a good reason why its not on the DSi Shop Channel yet!
Ja. That wat I want.



Kelvin said:

I'd be happy with Earthbound, Yoshi's Island and N64 Mario Tennis. It would be nice to have access to GameBoy and GBA games, but I'm not holding my breath on that.

Oh and it's not Virtual Console exactly, but downloadable add-on tracks for Mario Kart Wii would be amazing. They don't even need to come up with new ones, as they've got at least five games' worth of tracks from which to choose. If they can do song packs for Guitar Hero, they can do track packs for MKW.



Dazza said:

SNES classics such as Yoshi's Island, Star Fox and Super Mario Kart would be my choices.

I'd also love to see some classic Game Boy games get released too, probably on the DSi though.



Gizmo said:

Donkey Kong 64
Pilotwings 64
Super Mario Allstars

Yoshi island
Street racers

J-Man said:

Super Smash Bros.
Donkey Kong 64
Super Mario Kart
Super Mario World 2
Starfox 2 (please release this)
I hope nintendo is listening. I put alot of thought into it.



DreamWatcher said:

Ah...This is good... I've been waiting for this... (Well, this, Konami, and a WiiWare Klonoa game from Namco/Bandai.)

Earthbound (SNES)
Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island (SNES)
Kirby Super Star (8 games in 1!) (SNES)

And if somehow Nintendo can reason with Rare/Microsoft...

Donkey Kong 64 (Jetpac is the main problem here I guess.)

The only ones that are left on my list are by Konami, but are on Nintendo systems.
Zombies Ate My Neighbors (SNES)
Castlevania 64
Castlevania: Legacy of Darkness (N64)

Really hope some of these make the cut...

Rush N' Attack(NES)
Soul Blazer(SNES)
Star Ocean(SNES)
Lufia 2: Rise of the Sinistrals(SNES)
Ogre Battle 64(N64)
Dracula X: Rondo of Blood(PC Engine)



Link79 said:

Yoshi's Island is about the only Nintendo game left I can think of. I'm sure Nintendo is really gonna care what we want though. They've proven with VC that they are in charge of what we get and we have almost no say in the matter. Furthermore will someone please get to the bottom of why the N64 VC releases are slim to none and why third parties refuse to allow their N64 games to be released? What is the problem Nintendo?



CodyRBurns said:

I'll agree with Link79, Yoshi's Island is my top choice. If not that, I'd like to see either Earthbound (which I have never played before), or Donkey Kong 64



Sabrewing said:

I know Nintendo published them on the SNES outside of Japan, but who currently holds the publishing rights to Illusion of Gaia and Terranigma (Squenix obviously has Soul Blazer)? If it's still Nintendo, then dammit, those two!



GamerZack87 said:

Straight off the top of my head, I can think of nine, though there are more that I seek to obtain some time:

-Super Mario Kart
-Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island
-Tetris Attack!

-Mario Party
-Mario Party 2
-Mario Party 3
-Mario Tennis
-Donkey Kong 64 (Since we know it can be emulated now...provided they remove Jetpac from the game)

That's my list (so far)...I'm sure they'll be released in some form or another



blackknight77 said:

How about Radar Scope? Since it was one of Nintendo's first games. Other than that we need a wrestling game on the VC and Pro Wrestling would fit rather nicely and it's been sitting on the ESRB list forever. Other games I think we need are
10-yard Fight
Kung-Fu (Vigilante was cool, but this one was better)
Rad Racer
Hogan's Alley
Star Fox
Cobra Triangle
Dr. Mario (NES)
Tetris (NES)
Earthbound(for all the RPG fans)
and tops on the list would be Super Mario Allstars(even if it costs more its worth it).



DarkLloyd said:

for the love of god i can't believe i forgot this one more but im gonna restart my whole list again excluding the detail about golden eye
so for the n64 games i would so badly love to see on the vc are:
Golden eye 64
Donkey Kong 64
Mega Man 64
Mario Party 1

super mario all stars
tales of phantasy
Rockey rodent (dont anyone remeber that game lol)
tnmt 4 turtles in time
battle toads double dragon
and the battle toad series that was on the snes as well

and for the nes all i can think of is



HEMIII said:

Most of mine are Konami as well and Lemmings is Rock Star now.
But all I can think of are and there needs to be some kind of reasoning with Rare:
Golden Eye 007
Star Wars Racer
Soul Blazer Trilogy
Battle Clash 1 & 2
Hogans Alley
To The Earth, could be fun now if it has cross-hairs on the screen.
Wrecking Crew
Pilot Wings
Super Metroid, this should already be out right? If it is I'm slackin', If not they're slackin'.

Order like Importance:

Yoshi's Safari (SNES/ Wii Zapper support)
Wrecking Crew '98 (SNES/import)
Earthbound (SNES) (if America gives problems about the soundtrack, just release the US Import in Europe then )
Earthbound Zero (NES) (or Mother, but it would be hard without Japanese knowledge)
Hogan's Alley (NES/ Wii Zapper)

Popeye (VCA)
Excitebike: Bun Bun Mario Battle Stadium (SNES/Import)
Excitebike 64 (N64)
Pokémon Stadium 0-2 (N64)

Star Fox 2 (I know but still, I can want it can't I?)



calculon said:

Whoa there Drake et al. Popeye is NOT fully public domain.

Firstly, as far as I understand only the image of Popeye is public domain - nothing was mentioned about the whole cartoon cast, although I'm fairly sure Bluto, Wimpy, Sweet Pea and Olive Oyl appeared within the same year so they should be.

Secondly. the public domain status only applies to Europe, as under US law Popeye is still copyright until 2024. They protect copyright for 95 years instead for 70 years (for Europe) from the date of first publication.

Shouldn't affect the game coming out, but just thought I'd put in my two cents as usual.

-Yoshi's Island
-Mario Bros (Arcade)
-Kirby Superstar
-Super Mario Kart

There may be some that aren't on my mind right now.



Mika said:

Yoshi's Island! That's by far the game I want the most. I have already bought the DS sequel but I want to play the original first.



touffeboy said:

Mario Party 1-2-3!
Donkey kong 64 (Liscenced by Nintendo)
Goldeneye (Licenced by Activision)
Super Mario All-Stars
Final Fantasy (NES)
Mario Tennis 64



XCWarrior said:

SNES Star Fox, Earthbound 1, 2 and 3 (so two will be imports).

That's all I need Nintendo. The rest can come out whenever. Just give me those games, and you have games I'll download instantly.



jhuhn said:

NA is due for Super Mario Kart from the SNES, but want to see Mario Bros. and Donkey Kong as a Virtual Console arcade as well as Kung-Fu. I don't think Popeye will make the list because of trademark rights.



Objection said:

Starfox (SNES)
Mario Party Series (N64)
Earthbound (SNES)
Donkey Kong 64 (N64)
And on much less likely notes: Starfox 2(Unreleased) and Mother 1 (FAMICOM)



DiggerandIndy said:

Super Mario Kart
Yoshi's Island
Mother (prequel to EarthBound)
Mario Party 1-3
Donkey Kong 64
Kirby Super Star
Kirby no KiraKira Kizzu (Kirby Super Star Stacker)
Super Mario All-Stars
Super Smash Bros.

That's all I can think of at the moment.

Linkuini said:

Dr. Mario 64 is pretty much the last game that's even playable on my tired old N64. Once we get that on Virtual Console I can probably chuck the thing for good! Besides, it's still better than both the latest versions. An endless marathon mode, competitive play for four players, a silly but amusing story mode involving a bunch of characters from Wario Land 3 for some reason... truly the definitive Dr. Mario.



TourianTourist said:

I'm very satisfied with the VC so far, so my requests are rather exotic. As for the Virtual Console on the Wii, I would be interested in remakes of the BS games, especially in the Zelda ones. It's hard to do and they would probably have to change a lot, thanks to the nature of the BS-X system, but I believe a lot of people could be interested, solely because of curiosity. And of course they should release the last missing Zelda game on the VC, Master Quest, some day. But there's no hurry.

And I agree to everyone, who said Virtual Handheld on the DSi.

The original GBA game "Zelda: Four Swords" with online mutliplayer (or at least a local multiplayer option) would the greatest thing ever. That's the only Zelda game, I could never finish (because I didn't have anyone to play with), it's really good and fun (better than FSA imho) and I would buy a DSi just for that.

And of course there are lots of other great GameBoy and GBA games. Game&Watch is a really nice start, but don't stop there, Nintendo.

So, here's my wishlist:

  • BS The Legend of Zelda (remake)
  • BS The Legend of Zelda: Ancient Stone Tablets (remake)
  • The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time - Master Quest (N64)
  • The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past - Four Swords (GBA on DSi, online multiplayer)

Looks like I'm a fan of Zelda curiosities. Well, I am.

Terranigma belongs to Square/Enix right? So, I'm going to mention this, when you ask "What Square/Enix games do you want to see on the Virtual Console?" ^^



King_Elemento said:

  • Mother (Earthbound Zero, FC, Import)
  • Mother 2 (EarthBound, SNES, Import)
  • Star Fox (SNES)
  • Star Fox 2 (SNES, Unreleased)
  • BS Zeruda no Densetsu (Satellaview, Import)
  • BS Zeruda no Densetsu: Kodai no Sekiban (Satellaview, Import)
  • Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island (SNES)
  • Super Mario Kart (SNES)
  • Kirby's Fun Pak (Kirby Super Star, SNES)

Otherwise, I want games in PAL 60, with widescreen support and minimalised borders, as well as old handheld games on the DSi, which would trigger me to get one. But I'm happy with the games.



Pit_42 said:

Goldeneye 007 (N64)
EarthBound (SNES)
Donkey Kong 64 (N64)
Pilotwings (SNES)

Donkey Kong (VCA)



TourianTourist said:

@ChibiLink: Doesn't really matter, if it's called DSiWare or Virtual Handheld. Just make it possible. ^^

By the way, you can enter the Four Swords Palace in ALttP by using some glitches (Mirror jumping glitch ftw). Just google for some guides. But what you can't do without Four Swords is the Riddle Quest. And obviously playing Four Swords, still the best multiplayer version of Zelda up to date.

@KingElemento: Ah, another one being interested in BS games. The more the better. ^^

Please let me play true renditions of the arcade games I grew up playing. Mario Bros., Donkey Kong, Asteroids, Frogger and Popeye. At this point I'm so desperate I'd even take 95-percent translations, like in the Namco Museum.



Adam said:

In order: Mother 2. Super Mario Kart. Mother 1. Tetris Attack. Joy Mecha Fight. Star Fox. Yoshi's Island.



TanookiMike said:

Oh good, I've got a few.

-Dr. Mario 64
-Excitebike 64
-Mario Tennis
-Devil's World
-Mario Party
-Yoshi's Island

...And so on and so forth.

Oh, and a DSi VC would be nice too.



Fuzzy said:

Yoshi's Island
Adventures of Lolo 3
Super Mario Kart

And try and get the 3 soul blazer games on the VC.




Aenaida said:

I'm a bit skeptical of this actually working, but what the heck, I'll give it a shot.


Donkey Kong
Mario Bros.
The Vs. series.


Devil World (NA release)
Joy Mech Fight


Nazo no Murasamejō


Mario Paint
Star Fox
Mario & Wario
Stunt Race FX
EarthBound (I know there's possible licensing issues, but I really hate using an emulator to play this game. Until Nintendo themselves officially confirm if EB can be released or not I'll continue to hold out hope for this game.)
Kirby Super Star (When sales of the DS game drop down, if ever.)
Mario's Super Picross (NA release)
Wrecking Crew '98


Pilotwings 64
The Mario Party series.
Custom Robo V2 (NA and EU release)
Itoi Shigesato no Bass Tsuri No. 1 (Why not? The VC could use more fishing games.)


Kyojin no Doshin 1

Also, if someone could please tell me who holds the rights to the following games, I would be grateful:

Illusion of Gaia
Mischief Makers
StarCraft 64



Angelic_Lapras_King said:

Little suggestion NintendoLife, maybe for your next list you could go for one of the less supportive developers? It seems to me Sega, Capcom and Nintendo are too obvious choices.

Anyway, list time.


Duck Hunt (Do not be lazy, give us the damn Wiimote as a replacement Zapper!
Mother (Translate damn it!)


Super Mario Kart (We know it was released in Japan, but hurry up!)
Yoshi's Island (The fact you put Story up before this is a tragedy)
Starfox 2 (Can you smell the cash generated from this?)
Mario is Missing (No one wants the NES version)
Mario and Wario (Surly adding USB Mouse support can't be too hard right?)
Mario Paint
Yoshi's Safari
Wario's Woods


Mario Party 1, 2 and 3
Mario Tennis
Pokemon Stadium 1, 2 and 3 (Make it possible!)
Hey You Pikachu
Donkey Kong 64

Infact, get a lot more third party support for the N64 please! Its no wonder we're not even on 20 games yet!


You know what, all your arcade games please, including Popeye! We've all played the NES versions countless times, but now we want the real thing!


A Virtual Console for DSi! (Come on, a real money maker there!)
A Gameboy Player Channel for playing Gameboy games from your DSi to your TV!



morphballer said:

Battle Cash and Metal Combat are that e top of my list

Since all games go through Nintendo anyway I'll list some random games that come to mind:
Blaster Master
more Ninja Turtles and more Neo Geo games!

Ninja Turtles
Turtles in Time
The Simpsons



JSX said:

Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island
Final Fantasy 4 (if its 100pts extra for import/translation so be it)
Final Fantasy 5 (if its 100pts extra for import/translation so be it)
Final Fantasy 6
FInal Fantasy: Mystic Quest
Breath of Fire
Kirby SuperStar
Lufia II
ActRaiser 2



Dark_Machine said:

The Mother games (Earthbound at least)
Custom Robo series
SMW2: Yoshi's Island
Pilotwings 64
Star Fox 2 from the SNES (the game that never'll never happen but oh well)
The Setallaview Zeldas (for curiosity if nothing else)
Seiken Densetsu 3 (Why the hell not? As with the Mother games your just losing sales to fan-translations and emulators)



b_willers said:

Am I correct in thinking that the Popeye licence has recently entered the public domain? This would surly mean that the game is now a possibility and I would love to try it. From Nintendo i would also like EarthBound and Mischief Makers.

And as for third party on Nintendo systems;
Body Harvest
Space Station Silicon Valley
Snowboard Kids
Rocket: Robot on Wheels



Philip_J_Reed said:

Overall I'm pretty pleased with Nintendo's VC output so far (I know...I'm in the minority on that one), but I do want to throw in my desire to see the Mother series released here, or at the very least Earthbound.

I'm aware of the music issues or whatever, but hopefully, if they see enough of an interest, they'll take action.

I'd also like to request a DSi VC.

I'm not one of those "download everything" guys, but I can say honestly that if any of the Mother games came to VC, I'd grab them on day one. And if a VC came to DSi, I'd end up paying Nintendo more money than I was ever comfortable doing before.



aaronsullivan said:

Excitebike 64

Really... this is improbable, but I'd like gameboy, gameboy advance, even DS games to play on my TV via virtual console on Wii not just the DSi.



Smashbro99 said:

Smash Bros, Earthbound, Mario and Wario, DK64, and I want Microsoft Rare and Nintendo to work out their issues so I can get Banjo, Killer Instinct and Goldeneye007



Rapadash6 said:

More than any other Nintendo title, I want Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island.

I'd also like to see Super Mario All-Stars (possible club exclusive?), Stunt Race FX and Star Fox.

I'd like to point out that this isn't really neccessary because I'm sure Nintendo will get all their own viable titles out eventually. Plus, yeah, they won't bother listening to a list like this anyway.



MarkyVigoroth said:

Ah! I forgot!

NES: Doki Doki Panic
SNES: BS Zelda; BS Zelda 2
N64: Hey, You, Pikachu!

I hope Nintendo reads the comments on this article!

1) Nearly everything [that is possible] already mentioned above, especially DK64.

2) Mario & Wario (SNES) - since it was completely in English and looks like the Mario VS Donkey Kong DS games - would be interesting to play and it could use a Wii Remote or USB Mouse as a pointer to replace the SNES mouse.

3) How about some of the Satellaview games - Mario Excitebike anyone? These games were never available in the west, so they could be in Hanabi Festivals.

Being careful to only include Nintendo-owned properties, here's my list:

Cobra Triangle
Duck Hunt (WiiMote-enabled or WiiWare)
Hogan's Alley (WiiMote-enabled or WiiWare)

F-Zero 2 (import)
Star Fox 2
Super Mario Kart
Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island

-Mario Excitebike
-BS The Legend of Zelda

Super Scope 6 games (WiiMote-enabled or WiiWare)
Battle Clash
Metal Combat
Yoshi's Safari

Pilotwings 64
Wave Race 64

I second 50. Kelvin and request that Nintendo release some add-on content to Mario Kart Wii. Some new tracks would be nice, and a Battle Mode that isn't designed for absolute noobs would be nice.



DDR_Paladin356 said:

EarthBound hands down (not that it matters)
Star Fox
Yoshi's Island
Original Mario Party
Megaman X series
Illusion of Gaia
Secret of Evermore

I can think of tons more...but those are the ones that come straight to mind.



emayer said:

Yoshi's Island
Super Mario Kart
Star Fox
Pilotwings 64

After reading the comments and thinking of my avatar, I add the following:

NES: Megami Tensei; Megami Tensei 2
SNES: Shin Megami Tensei; Shin Megami Tensei 2; Shin Megami Tensei if...; Majin Tensei; Majin Tensei 2
N64: Mario Party, Mario Party 2, Mario Party 3

(I know that those are 3rd-party titles, but others posted 3rd-party titles, too!)

I hope that Nintendo understands what I mean by the titles I (and others) posted... or reads all of my comments...

By the way, I support the release of all of the titles that others suggested! Also, I wish that we get (at least) one of the above-mentioned titles each week in addition to one of the titles we normally get...

One more thing: when will "the powers that be" read the comments we all have posted?

I'd love to see Star Fox, Super Mario Kart, Yoshi's Island, Earthbound, the Mario Party games, Super Smash Bros., Goldeneye, Diddy Kong Racing, imports of Famicom Wars and Super Famicom Wars, and the BS Zelda games made for the Japanese Satellaview SNES add-on.

OK, if these games get released on the VC, I will be a very happy person.

-Super Mario Kart (SNES)

-Mario Paint (SNES)



BomberJjr said:

I think it would be a big selling point if they brought VC GameBoy games to the DSi. Uses one of the DSi's strengths (the DSi Shop) to fix one of its weaknesses (lack of GBA slot). There's definitely a market for it. Ask anyone who frequents NintendoLife and they'll surely back that up.



Cashman3000 said:

Everything mentioned above please. I haven't purchased anything since Super Punchout SNES. Hopefully this column will start a trend in more first party weekly releases. Also, Wizards & Warriors...( I know its not a first party but a geek can dream.)

BJWanlund said:

Now, I know full well I'll be talking about 3rd party titles here, because I think Nintendo has a say even in what 3rd party titles go up to the VC as well.

Wii Virtual Console:
M.C. Kids
Snoopy's Silly Sports Spectacular
The Little Mermaid
Magic Johnson's Fast Break
Nintendo World Cup (How come this hasn't been released already?!)
DUCK HUNT (Come ON, Nintendo, it can't take 2 seconds to convert this to be used by any number of light gun peripherals for the Wii on Virtual Console! I've waited since the launch of the Wii to play this on Virtual Console. Please don't make me wait much longer!)

Super Mario All-Stars
Ken Griffey Presents Major League Baseball
Super Mario Kart (Seriously Nintendo, what's taking you so bloody long to release this in the States?!)

Mario Party 1-3 (make it so, Number One)
Wonder Project J2 (at the very least an English translation. Please?!)

DSi Virtual Console (Please God, Nintendo, just freaking release this already! You're making me ill just making me wait for this):

Game Boy:
Adventure Island GB
Balloon Kid
Bill Elliott’s NASCAR Fast Tracks
Blades of Steel
Daedalean Opus
Dr. Mario (IMHO the superior SINGLE-PLAYER Dr. Mario experience)
Duck Tales
Galaga & Galaxian (my first exposure to those 2 games)
Home Alone
Jeopardy Sports Edition
Kid Icarus: Of Myths & Monsters
Kirby’s Pinball Land
Malibu Beach Volleyball
Mario’s Picross
Mickey’s Dangerous Chase
Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers: The Movie
Motocross Maniacs
NBA All Star Challenge
Nintendo World Cup
Pokemon Red/Blue/Yellow
Snoopy’s Magic Show
Star Wars
Super Mario Land
Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins
Tetris (PLEASE)
Tetris Attack
The Amazing Spider Man
The Incredible Crash Dummies
Wheel of Fortune (may be impossible)
World Bowling
Yoshi (aka Mario & Yoshi to the rest of the world)
Yoshi's Cookie

Game Boy Color:
Game & Watch Gallery 2
Pokemon Gold/Silver/Crystal (bc I want to play the originals thru again before the remakes come out)
Pokemon Trading Card Game

Game Boy Advance:
Advance Wars games
Mario vs. Donkey Kong
Metroid Fusion
Metroid Zero Mission
Pokemon Ruby/Sapphire/Emerald
Pokemon FireRed & LeafGreen

That is everything I would ever want from the Virtual Console (both on Wii and, when Nintendo gets off their rumps to release it, the DSi).

Also, while this may have absolutely nothing to do with the Virtual Console, I'd like to see a Pokemon Box on the DSi Shop which is a repository of all your Pokemon from the Virtual Console/Virtual Handheld games which you can then basically trade between it and the new Pokemon Heart Gold & Soul Silver coming soon once you get to the city where the Time Capsule started to work in the original games (can't remember which city that it was right now).

That is all.

@118:MattL: Don't feel sorry at all! I'm glad more people want the games that I want especially the more obscure ones like Beetle Adventure Racing!



touffeboy said:

Yeah, Nintendo Release Dump games, Why you don't release HITS when you can MAKE A LOT OF CASH, the new politicy of nintendo _



vio said:

Well, as far as first party titles go, there's only a few I'm interested in.

Star Fox
Star Fox 2(how awesome would this be! the virtual console is ideal for an unreleased gem like this. nintendo, you know you can release this, so please do it!)
Yoshi's Island
Super Mario Kart(not as good as later games in the series, but it's a classic and should be on VC)
Super Mario All-Stars(even though all of these games are already on VC, it would be nice to have the upgraded 16-bit versions)

I know this is the wrong thread, but I might as well throw my wish list in for Konami and Capcom games.

SNES: Mega Man 7, Final Fight 2 & 3(looks like 2 is coming, so that's a step in the right direction), Demon's Crest and maybe the Mega Man X games, although I'm not really into those.
NES: Mega Man 4-6, Mighty Final Fight
Genesis/Mega Drive: Mega Man: The Wily Wars
Arcade: Street Fighter Alpha 1-3, Street Fighter 3

SNES: Castlevania: Dracula X, TMNT 4: Turtles in Time
Genesis/Mega Drive: Contra: Hard Corps, Castlevania: Bloodlines, TMNT: The Hyperstone Heist
NES: TMNT 2 and 3, Contra
N64: Mega Man 64, Castlevania: Legacy of Darkness

And of course the big one...
TurboGrafx-16: Dracula X: Rondo of Blood!

The time and costs to covert this title to English would be minimal and it's guaranteed to sell the by the bucket loads. There's no reason not to release this much desired game Konami.



Mama_Luigi said:

Donkey Kong

Yoshi's Island

N64 games

SGAK said:

How about some Gameboy and Gameboy Color games like Mario Land 1 & 2
the Legend of Zelda - Link's Awakening DX

...and of course the SNES classics Mario Kart and a WiiMote compatible version of Mario Paint... or why not a WiiWare version?



AMK said:

Arcade: Donkey Kong, we need to be able to play all the levels!

I know its not directly Nintendo, but in the absence of any most wanted Tecmo games list (and why would there be), It has to be Tecmo World Wrestling on the NES.



SGAK said:

FFIV and Chrono Trigger probably won't see the light of day when there are simplified DS & GBA versions of those...



BJWanlund said:

@Swiket: The Wii Zapper direct from Nintendo themselves and the Nyko PerfectShot are examples of what I am talking about regarding Wii light guns.




LinktotheFuture said:

Super Mario Kart, Super Mario All Stars, Yoshi's Island, Pilotwings, Pro Wrestling, Tetris (NES), Duck Hunt, Pilotwings 64, Excitebike 64, Tetris/Dr.Mario (SNES).



colmtheperson said:

I'd like to see nintendo and microsoft work a way to bring goldeneye007 to both vc and xbla and then to have cross platform online gaming! But since that will never happen I'd like to see the marioparty games, super mario kart and banjo tooie



Kid_A said:

Earthbound is an obvious one. I've never played it so I'd love to see what the big deal is. DK 64 is another one--surely Nintendo and Rare could work something out on that one.



Swiket said:

@BJWanlund: Those aren't light guns; they're nothing than plastic white shells. The Wii Remote gets its position from the sensor bar, not the TV, which light guns do. For a game like Duck Hunt, they could either not show a crosshair and make the player unsure of where he/she's pointing to on the screen, or add a crosshair and kill the difficulty.



astarisborn94 said:

Well finally Nintendo of America shows that they care about the hardcore gamers, now it's time to reveil my list, not to mention it's pretty long:

Virtual Console Arcade:
1. Donkey Kong
2. Popeye
3. Donkey Kong Jr.
4. Mario Bros.
5. Donkey Kong 3
6. Mario Kart Arcade GP
7. Mario Kart Arcade GP2
8. Marble Madness

Nintendo Entertainment System:
1. Duck Hunt (Just let us use the Wii Remote, so you can release this game on the Virtual Console.)
2. Dr. Mario (Why isn't this game on the Virtual Console yet?)
3. Tetris (SInce we got the excellent Tetris Party on WiiWare, they just have to ask Tetris Online to release the game on the Wii Virtual Console, and that's it!)
4. Devil World (Anyone think this will be our Haloween game?)
5. Track & Field
6. Mario Is Missing! (Yeah, I want this version, sure it may such, but at least it'll be worth something)
7. Battletoad (I've like some challenge please and to prove the AVGN wrong.)
8. Mother (It's only possible if they get Earthbound on the Virtual Console, but that's likely to happen, so it's possible that we'll see this too if Earthbound is a major success story on the Virtual Console.)

Super Nintendo Entertainment System:
1. Earthbound (A must release, it's a game that many fans would do anything to get the game on the Virtual Console.)
2. Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island
3. Star Fox
4. Killer Instinct (I know there's licensing issues, but I don't give a flip.)
5. Tetris Attack! (Look up Tetris for the NES.)
6. Kirby Superstars (No reason not to release this game on the Virtual Console.)
7. Super Mario Kart
8. Super Mario All-Stars (I'll pay 2,000 Wii Points)
9. Pilotwing (Launch titles shouldn't take this long to make it on the Virtual Console.)
10. Fire Emblem: Monsho No Nazo (Or whatever it is. Anyway, this could be an excellent import game and the best of it's kind.)
11. Metal Combat
12. Mario Paint (It could use the Wii Remote as if it was a mouse.)
13. Mario Is Missing! (They say this version is bad too, but who cares? I'll take any sub-par Nintendo game over an sub-par Genesis game that nobody wants.)
14. Wario's Wood
15. Wrecking Crew
16. Mario & Wario (A Japanese only game entirely in English? I'll take it!)

Nintendo 64:
1. Pilotwing 64
2. Mario Party
3. Mario Party 2
4. Mario Party 3
5. Banjo-Kazooie (My most wanted Nintendo title, it's still possible.)
6. Banjo-Tootie
7. Diddy Kong Racing
8. Donkey Kong 64
9. Conker's Bad Fur Day (When I get older.)
10. Goldeneye 007 (My most wanted licensed game.)
11. Pefect Darkness (When I get older.)
12. Jet Force Gemini
13. Mario Tennis
14. Super Smash Bros. (This isn't in North American yet, so it counts.)
15. Excitebike 64
16. Hey You! Pikachu! (This is possible, just ulitilize Wii Speak in it.)
17. Pokemon Stadium
18. Pokemon Stadium 2
19. Dr. Mario 64
20. Blast Corps

Nintendo, are you listening? There are hardcore gamers who still cares about you who wants to see more Virtual Console games, games that they GREW UP WITH! Please do us fan service and deliver on your promise, a service where we can pick out any games we want while we wait for games that we would love to see, not have to wait in fear for another bad week, although you have prevented a bad week for the last five weeks.

People, I know I sound like someone said this before, but it's time to start voicing our opinions as much as possible. Spread the news of the Virtual Console and tell them what you want and tell them to support the Virtual Console to make it what we've dreamed of, so we don't end up with an total disappointment with wasted potential.



BJWanlund said:

@Swiket Maybe that's what Nintendo is waiting for: A redesign of the original Zapper to work on both old AND new televisions. (And maybe fixing the original Zapper's failings while they're at it)

Captain Skyhawk

KingMike said:

Mother (they translated it but never released it), Earthbound, Fire Emblem Gaiden (although it's not happening because it would need translation)
Star Fox 2. Yes, there's a near-finished Japanese version being passed around the Internet, so I don't think there'd be much of a problem there. Not sure how much of a language problem it'd be if Nintendo didn't still have an English version lying around.
Kirby's Super Star Stackers (Kira Kira Kids). Never really played it, but we can't have enough puzzle games.
Another that won't happen, but Marvelous: Another Treasure Island (SNES). So I hear it's a pretty awesome Japan-only LttP-type game.
Arcana for SNES (I'm counting HAL since last I heard, Nintendo owns them).
Alcahest (a Japan-only HAL action game for SNES, published by Square). Not sure if the text is important, though.

Virtual Handheld: Lolo for GB. I hear this game is so stupidly expensive and rare, it might almost be worth it to get a DSi to play it.

Uh, yeah, and Square-Enix needs to get their act together and release Terranigma and Lufia II (if possible, the PAL version because it fixed a few ridiculous bugs in the US version).



miletich3 said:

This list IS LONG! OMG.

Anyway, Earthbound, SMW 2, Mario Parties for N64 and that's pretty much it.



FluttershyGuy said:

There are plenty of Nintendo games I'd love to see on the VC. Especially their early arcade classics (which would really give legitimacy to VCA...and would love to see your very first venture, Othello).

But, the request I want to make is for a VC on the DSi. There have been so many Game Boy, Game Boy Color, etc. classics I've never gotten the chance to play, and it would truly give a sense of completion to the library from past Nintendo systems to have a chance to download games from your handhelds. It's unimaginable that as of now, Nintendo wouldn't want to make their handheld classics available to this generation of gamers.

I love Nintendo and their games. Have since I bought an NES in October 1987, along with Gyromite, Duck Hunt, Donkey Kong Jr. and Baseball. I still own a NES, along with a SNES, N64, GameCube and Wii (and have each hooked up to my TV).

However, honestly, I hate what Nintendo's doing with the DSi right now. If I wanted an iPhone, I'd go out and get one. Nintendo, it saddens me to say this, but you're straying too far from your roots trying to make one of your systems an "apps" machine.

There's nothing much revolutionary about what you're doing with the DSi. You're just denying a vast world of fun and nostalgia trying to make it an iPhone competitor and semi-clone. It's a game machine.

While you're certainly within your rights to try new things with it, give us something nostalgic gamers really want to see, and along with it a chance to relive so many wonderful memories. Or make new ones playing legendary series and games we may've missed before. It's long been a regret of mine that I never got to play Kid Icarus and Metroid on Game Boy.

You may be surprised at how many DSi's you'd sell returning more focus to gaming and your company's great tradition. The second you make an announcement of a DSi VC, I'm on my way to GameStop for a DSi. Until then, I'm happy with my old DS with GBA slot.

Ironically, you're limiting and handicapping a potentially limitless system with this insistence on forsaking anything that doesn't appear revolutionary and progressive. It's a DSi. Not a DSiPhone.

Thank you, and sorry to seem at all harsh here. I just hate to see Nintendo stray so far from what made it great, as the DSi goes.

The Wii, on the other hand, I'm pleased with in large part. You're pretty good to retro-oriented gamers like myself with the VC, and games like New Super Mario Bros. Wii (Looking forward to it more than anything in a while).

These one-game VC release weeks concern me, though. The VC was a dream come true, and I hope you never abandon it for the appearance of progress. Sometimes PROgression is in actuality REgression. Thank you for your consideration.

No Nintendo game deserves a VC release more than the game that never even saw the light of day despite being practically finished.



Megaman256 said:

What happen to the original Contra and how come we don't have it yet. We have Super C and Contra 3 but we are still missing the classic Contra. Other Nintendo games I would like to see is Tecmo Super Bowl, Double Dragon 2 and TMNT 2 and 3. Super Nintendo games I would like would be Super Mario Kart, Super Mario World 2, Super Bomberman, Chrono Trigger, Final Fantasy 3, Aladdin, Mortal Kombat 2, Megaman X and TMNT 4. These are all great games and I'm surprise they are not out come on Nintendo.



niner said:

I enjoyed your eloquent statement. I second everything that you said. The VC was (and is) is a dream come true for those of us who grew up in the 80's and 90's playing games on Nintendo, Sega and maybe even an NEC console. Your post speaks for a lot of us, I'm sure.

I completely agree that Nintendo needs to create a DSi VC. I have no use for the DSi until that exists. Like you, I'm perfetly happy with my DS with its GBA port. The slow trickle of VC releases coupled with bigger WiiWare releases is concerning to me as well.



bacchus said:

Faxanadu and Snake Rattle 'n' Roll.
I had to check wikipedia to find out which games nintendo had actually published. I was surprised to see Faxanadu as it doesn't feel like a nintendo game. It's gothic and it really stands out on the nes compared to all the other brightly coloured games. Definitely one of my favourite nes games.

Snake Rattle 'n' Roll was also a brilliant game even though it was not quite as cool as marble madness which came before it. Unfortunately, it was also developed by Rare so we might not be able to get that one.



KingMike said:

Faxanadu wasn't created by Nintendo.
It started out as a game called Xanadu by Falcom, for some Japanese PCs. Hudson Soft created a port/sequel or something and called it Faxanadu (Fa for Famicom), and Nintendo translated it.




DSi and Wii VC....

Super Mario Kart (not for me, but good for service)
Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island

I Nintendo reads this, than I can only say that you should either have an Earthbound VC release or a remake through other forms. Just please make out your legal problems.



YoshisIslandfan76 said:

PLEASE Nintendo put Yoshi's Island on the Virtual Console and ShadowDancer (Genesis game) and Revenge of Shinobi!!!! That would be amazing!



Ricardo91 said:

At last, the moment we've all been waiting for!

I want:

Donkey Kong (arcade)

Donkey Kong 64 (N64)
Nazo no Murasamejou (NES, import)
Mario & Wario (SNES, import)
Wrecking Crew '98 (SNES, import)
Popeye (Arcade)



Eclipticalis said:

Earthbound seems to be on almost everyone's list. Maybe Nintendo will finally clear up whatever red tape is necessary and release the damn game already.



SKTTR said:

Nintendo, please don't release any MARIO PARTY game!!! PLEASE!!!!!

I want Doubutso Bancho.
Heck, of course I want EarthBound Zero too!

These are my only wishes. Thankyou Nintendo for bringing me Doubutso Bancho and EarthBound Zero and not bringing any of those Mario Party games!



EsnelPla said:

VC won't be complete without Mother (NES), Earthbound (SNES), and Yoshi's Island (SNES).



Stuffgamer1 said:

@Eclipticalis: THAT'LL be the day! Idiots outright refuse to acknowledge the demand for that game, regardless of how hard we work to make it known. And if someone from Nintendo actually reads this, I'm sorry for insulting you guys, but it's true. The Earthbound fansbase has been working its collective butt off trying to make it clear that we really DO want Earthbound/Mother series stuff, but we still get ignored. Enough is enough! VC, remake, I don't really care. I'll buy it in a heartbeat either way, along with a few hundred thousand (at least) other fans and would-be fans!



supbilly said:

Where to start?

  • Super Mario Kart

Luigison said:

Popeye would be awesome. I loved playing it on Atari 5200.
I never played Earthbound, but want to give it a try.
Yoshi's Island would be great. It's may favorite "Yoshi" game.

Ducktales should have been on you list. It's one of the best games of all time though its not made by Nintendo.

Mario & Wario would be a great Nintendo games to see. The mouse controls could easily be done with the Wiimote.

#215,good list especially the FF import games,2&3 sucked here i mean 2 here is actually 4 and 3 here is actually 6,so 2&3 are totally different games in japan and the originals not remakes of previous ff games but in english,and i would love to see those on the vc also like they deserve to be.They ripped us off on alot of games back in the day and gave us trash and they still do it,just like life force was pawned off as gradius 2 back in the day,life force is good but was not gradius 2.



Ricardo91 said:

@Spencer. Earthbound 64 doesn't exist. Development for it on N64 was canned and it was moved to GBA, where it became Mother 3. That's not likely to be released either, since Nintendo hates American Earthbound fans with a passion and all...



Luigison said:

Next NintendoLife should do a "What Disney games do you want to see on the Virtual Console?" My pick would be Duck Tales!



TheBlueBomber said:

Secret of mana, as it was intended in the first place!
The ripped out 50% of the game...

Oooor, you could just give the source code to some developers with to much spare time!



VermithraxDagon said:

Like others have said previously, ANY ARCADE GAMES!! I'd also like to have Pilotwings 64 and more SNES releases.



The_Indigo_Effect said:

1. Mother (NES import) and Mother 2 / Earthbound
2. Any and all arcade titles; I'd like to see WAY more arcade games in general on a weekly basis if possible.
3. Virtual Boy, Game Boy, and portable systems in general, unless this service is planned for the DSi.
4. Star Fox 2 (SNES import)
5. F-Zero 2 (SNES import)
6. Terranigma (I know it's not a first-party title and it's an import title by Square-Enix)
7. The Pilotwings series in general
8. The Fire Emblem series in general (all import titles that span several systems)
9. Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island
10. Secret of Mana 2 (I know it's not a first-party title)
11. Super Mario Kart (perhaps with an online feature, which would probably make it a WiiWare release)
12. The Pokemon Stadium titles
13. Donkey Kong 64
14. Doshin the Giant (import)
15. Devil World
16. Custom Robo (N64 import)

ICEknight said:

Games I'd buy as soon as they're released:

-Earth Bound (SNES)
-Donkey Kong (Arcade)
-Mario Bros (Arcade)

I give up on any console game that has been released previously in Europe, as they'll run at crappy 50Hz and I don't want my eyes to bleed and explode. Else, I'd ask for Tetris Attack.



Chatham said:

If hackerz can get these SNES games working on the Wii, Nintendo sure as hell can...

If you ever saw the beta or played the leaked .rom floating around the internet... Star Fox 2 for the SNES was far from finished and played like crap to boot.



Jimbub said:

Super Mario Kart
Advance Wars
Galaxians (Atari 2600)
Also isn't it about time Nintendo took the initiative and put GC games on. Would have thought it is feasible with the added SD support lately?



The_Indigo_Effect said:

X-Men Arcade sounds like a great idea; as long as it's at least four players, I'm in. While we're at it, the Alien Vs. Predator beat-em-up would also be a great addition. The only downside is that they're third-party titles, so I'm not sure if Nintendo has much say in it. That being said, at least they know what the fans want.



Ian_Daemon said:

Where is the general clamor for "Zombies Ate My Neighbors"? Did people forget? It's on only a few lists... I guess the clamor came from the "vocal minority".

While ZAMN isn't Nintendo-only, I'd definitely put it in the "Nintendo Classic" category. It's a classic and on a Nintendo console. (i.e. "Pac-Man" is an Arcade classic.)



JJtheTexan said:

I know there will be a few repeats in here, so forgive me...

  • Crystalis / NES -- technically an SNK game, but I believe Nintendo owns the rights, since they published the horrendous Game Boy Color port. (This is my favorite game of all time; I lost my original copy, I can't find a decent emulator on my crummy computer, and I hate the GBC version. I actually sent Nintendo an e-mail asking for this game, and got a canned response... but we'll see.)
  • Golf / NES -- So basic, but I lost many hours of my youth on these virtual links!
  • EarthBound / Super NES -- Yeah yeah, just like everyone else.
  • Killer Instinct / Super NES -- Loved this fighting game
  • Stunt Race FX / Super NES -- A fun little SuperFX chip racing game. LOVED it!!!
  • Cruisn' World / Nintendo 64 -- Come on. It's not the worst racer ever...
  • Excitebike 64 / Nintendo 64 -- Hey, we got the original, so why not the sequel?
  • Killer Instinct Gold / Nintendo 64 -- One of the best arcade ports on the N64.
  • Mario Party / Nintendo 64 -- And parts 2 and 3, while they're at it!
  • Mario Tennis / Nintendo 64 -- We got Mario Golf, so...
  • Pilotwings 64 / Nintendo 64 -- Again, we got the original, but this one is sooooo much better!

Thanks for the opportunity!



Ian_Daemon said:

@Jimbub: The Wii is already (100%?) compatible with GC games. You'll never see them on the V.C. Just go and buy the GC game you want at the store and play it on your Wii.

Feld0 said:

Hi, I'm new to NintendoLife and this is my first comment here, but on with my list!


  • Donkey Kong 64 (what the **** happened to the DK franchise after this game?!)
  • Super Smash Bros. (got Brawl, but a look back is always nice.)


  • Super Mario All-Stars(+World possibly?) (I like the enhanced graphics and sound quality of the 4 originals, and the 4 save files for each game)
    Yoshi's Island: Super Mario World 2 (need I say more?)

Hydro Thunder (played it a few times at some arcades; challenging, but definetely fun.)

For a future DSi Virtual Handheld(/Console?)

It would be cool if, when they release the DSi VC, a DSi could be linked with a Wii, so that VC games you buy on the Wii can be "synced" to your DSi (here's hoping for SD card support, a la Wii Menu 4.0), complete with save game data, without having to buy the same game twice. (You're at home, in the middle of a dungeon in Zelda: Link to the Past, but you've gotta leave. Sync it to a DSi and keep it going on the go!)

Now, a list for the actual service:

  • All the previous Pokemon games (along with a free app or added feature to transfer/migrate your Pokemon to Diamond/Pearl/Platinum/HeartGold/SoulSilver)
  • The Super Mario Land games
  • (already announced, but worthy of a list nonetheless) The entire Game & Watch series
  • Super Mario World & Yoshi's Island (they're already on GBA, so why not DSi, too?)
  • Donkey Kong Country series
  • The 2D Zelda games (original, Link to the Past, Oracle of Ages/Seasons, Link's Awakening, etc.)
  • Ocarina of Time & Majora's Mask (might actually be better suited for retail release, considering the larger filesize of N64 games.) (They've already done this before with SM64 DS, which is much better than the original! Let's see it with Zelda!)
  • The original Genesis Sonic games (1, 2, & 3) (great fun to be had!)
  • Don't forget the Kirby originals!

Quite honestly, I don't have that much experience with retro games, as the Wii was my first console (I'm one of the lucky launch buyers, though!) and I had access to PC games for the first time around 1999-2000. That's why my list isn't as big on the third-party side.

Some games I would've put on my list had they not been released recently:

  • The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask (N64)
  • Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars (SNES)

Wow, that was pretty long for my first comment!

Don't know if they already looked here... But I'm posting this anyway.

I wanna see EarthBound (for my friend's sake), at least one of the Fire Emblem games that are Japan only (preferably Seisen no Keifu), Yoshi's Island, and Donkey Kong 64 (all three for my sake) mainly. I also think it'd be pretty cool if.

EDIT 257th!



jindofox said:

I'm happy with the current offerings BUT I would love to be able to transfer these big-screen games over to my DSi machine.

I love being able to play Playstation One games on the PS3 and PSP, moving my save file between them as needed.

more megaman(classic,X,64)
Raiden Trad
Tetris Attack and Tetrisphere
Bill Lambeer's Combat Basketball
Firepower 2000
Mischief Makers
Phantom 2040
Bomberman 64

also more Sega consoles like Saturn and Dreamcast...that's all i can think of now....



Bridge said:

Well... based on games Nintendo has published over the years... here's what I'd like to see...

-Dragon Warrior (Square is getting Final Fantasy put on the NES, why not let Enix show their love with the Dragon Quest series? )
-Wild Gunman (NES Zapper) (Right control stick would be used to aim the shots.)
-Gumshoe (NES Zapper) (See above)
Mother a.k.a Earthbound Zero (Import title, the original US version is on the internet, surely they have the game in archives or something at NoA.)

-Yoshi's Safari (Super Scope) (Same as with NES Zapper games, Right Control stick on Classic Controller would aim the shots.)
-Star Fox
-Mario Paint (Mouse is replaced with the right control stick on the Classic Controller, Camera Stick on the Gamecube Controller. Also included would be the option to send your drawings to the Wii Message Board like Pokemon Snap)
-Stunt Race FX
-Super Mario Kart (Japan has it, so hoping we get it soon as well.)
-Illusion of Gaia
-Mario and Wario (Import title which has to my knowledge English in the game. Mouse would be replaced with the R Control Stick on the Classic Controller a la Mario Paint.)
-Super Mario World 2 Yoshi's Island (YES.)
And last but not least for the SNES...
-Earthbound! (Lots of people would download it. Would hit #1 in the Top 20 VC games within a week, guaranteed.)

Nintendo 64:
-Donkey Kong 64
-Mario Party 1
-Super Smash Bros
-Mario Tennis (Unlikely though, since a LOT of stuff was unlocked via the Transfer Pak and the Game Boy Color game )

As for personal preferences, I pretty much have a top five most wanted for VC... honestly I would buy these games as soon as they're put up on the channel.

5.) Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: The Movie (SNES. C'mon Nintendo... the 15th anniversary for the movie IS next year. )
4.) Super Mario World 2 (Lost my old copy years ago )
3.) Mega Man 64 (Never played a MM Legends game before, so I'd really buy this to try it out.)
2.) Donkey Kong 64 (A classic)
1.) Earthbound (Duh. )
