What LucasArts games do you want to see on Virtual Console?
Posted by Marcel van Duyn
Let the talented folks at LucasArts know what you want.
It's great to finally see another western publisher supporting the Virtual Console - LucasArts has just released Super Star Wars, and has already promised that both of its sequels, plus other games, will follow in the future.
Being the official game development team for a famous movie production company, LucasArts has made a ton of movie-based games over the years, which is what we're likely to be seeing the most of. Series like Star Wars and Indiana Jones have a multitude of games based on them, most of which have been surprisingly good.
Of course, LucasArts has created quite a few unique non-movie games as well - Think of Zombies Ate My Neighbors, its sequel Ghoul Patrol, and Metal Warriors, all for the SNES, as well as their now well-known adventure game franchises Monkey Island, Sam & Max and Maniac Mansion.
Now that LucasArts has officially announced their Virtual Console support, why not tell them what games you'd like to see on the service first?
To kick things off, we'd like to see LucasArts release some games which we think many others will agree with - Zombies Ate My Neighbors (Mega Drive/SNES), Indiana Jones' Greatest Adventures (SNES) and Star Wars: Shadows of the Empire (N64). Sadly, very few LucasArts adventure games were released on consoles currently on the Virtual Console service - Perhaps they can look into getting some of those on WiiWare instead?
With all that said, have a look at a list of games LucasArts has made and have a think which of them you'd most like to see on the Virtual Console. When there's sufficient responses, we'll pass on your picks to LucasArts and hopefully influence their next VC selections!
