Japanese Virtual Console List - February 2012

Neo Geo support continues

Japan is getting three more Wii Virtual Console games this month. The scale is clearly tipped in the favour of the Neo Geo once more, as it will see yet another two games. If only we'd see some more Neo Geo games in the West.

Japan's full list for this month is as follows:

Super Famicom

  • Kunio-Kun no Dodge Ball Dayo Zenin Shuugo! — Essentially the SNES version of Super Dodge Ball, this was, as you may expect, never released outside Japan.

Neo Geo

  • Samurai Spirits: Amakusa Korin — The fourth game in the series known in the West as Samurai Shodown, this was recently OFLC rated so it might make its way elsewhere soon as well.
  • Real Bout Garou Densetsu Special — Japan only got the regular version of Real Bout Garou Densetsu (AKA Real Bout Fatal Fury) last month, but they're now already getting the upgraded version featuring some more characters.

The next 3DS Virtual Console in Japan (Which will be released next week) is a bit of an odd one, as it's Kid Icarus: Of Myths and Monsters for the Game Boy. It's odd because Japan never actually got it back in the day, making it one of the first import titles on the 3DS VC.
