Perhaps when you complete the Smash Bros line up (Well, till you decide to Amiibo the DLC characters) you can do a Reissue Wave where the most desired Amiibo get a reprint huh Nintendo?

Pity they did not ask him about the Gold Mario Amiibo getting a UK run. Getting him without a UK release will be a financial nightmare for us importers... @_@



Angelic_Lapras_King commented on Natsume Suggests That Nintendo's Moving Away F...:

The fact we have less 3rd party companies releasing VC this time then on the original Wii hasnt helped matters. Noticeably, we've yet to see any Square Enix even though they've released the Final Fantasys for NES and SNES on the Japanese Wii U VC.

Remember when SNK were still supporting the Wii VC even after the Wii U was out? Which that devotion, you'd think we would of seen Neo Geo games by now, but nope....



Angelic_Lapras_King commented on Rumour: More Super Smash Bros. Code Digging Po...:

Roy will make the Roy fangirls scream, so I can see it happening. Guessing we could see more returning characters as part of the line up before the fan voting ends, since the data/moveset already exists so would be less work to do? Maybe Wolf to promote the new Starfox game (A reveal video with the Star Wolf theme would be epic, Snake since some people miss him, etc.



Angelic_Lapras_King commented on ​Vote Now and Decide Which Classic Mega Man ...:

Sure I heard somewhere that Legends was one of those PS1 games that could not be ported to PSN for whatever reason, so dunno if the N64 version is possible or not. Even if it is, Nintendo only just recently announced N64 games to the Wii U VC so 3rd parties probably havent prepared their N64 and DS catalogues for rerelease yet....



Angelic_Lapras_King commented on Weirdness: Street Fighter's Ryu is Now Being R...:

Think it's likely DLC characters aside from the Voting, will be mostly returning characters since the movesets and data already exist for them. Roy's a fan fav, so I wouldnt be surprised, Snake for sure if Konami are onboard, Wolf would be a good way to advertise the new Starfox game,just to name a few examples.

Ryu would be interesting, but I dunno. Wouldnt that mean adding a Street Fighter stage, new trophies and unlockables too to add to the Street Fighter vibe? Then again, this might be Capcom's advertisement to tempt fans to pick up Street Fighter V..... XD



Angelic_Lapras_King commented on Ubisoft Announcement Suggests More Child Of Li...:

Reckon it'll show up on Wii U. Ubisoft did state that Watch Dogs would be the last MATURE game they would bring to Wii U, and since kids can easily pick this up, I'm sure any spin off/sequel will find a home on the eShop.

I mean come on, Child of Light got a Physical Box release on the PSVita, the VITA for christ's sake....



Angelic_Lapras_King commented on Rumour: Upcoming Mario Kart 8 DLC to Include B...:

Metroid track seems likely to me since the first pack did have an Excitebike, F Zero and a Zelda course, so I won't be surprised if we see other franchises represented in track form.

Who knows, maybe that WOODS track is based on the classic game, Wario's Woods. XD



Angelic_Lapras_King commented on Nintendo Download: 16th April (Europe):

I'll probably just buy the Smash DLC 1 by 1 since there's zero saving for buying the bundle, which there should be. Alternatively, Nintendo DLC has been discounted in the past before for a weekly sale, so you could just wait till then maybe.

Streetpass will have to wait till next week. Going to the London Zelda concert this Friday...



Angelic_Lapras_King commented on GAME Launches UK Pre-Orders for Splatoon amiib...:

Good on Game for blocking International orders. I know American Collectors are having hard luck but unfortunately the scalpers would easily steal them from our hands, and the fact we can even still order them right now is proof of that.

I just hope the scalpers do not start to make UK contacts in order to get their hands on our Amiibo....



Angelic_Lapras_King commented on Pokémon White Makes Surprise Appearance in UK...:

Well you might want to pick up the game now before it becomes out of print. If it's not selling so well, I don't think Nintendo of Europe will want to make many new copies of the game, especially if you can get it on the eShop.

Just a warning, before copies become rare and at the £50+ point like the Wii version and you're wondering why....



Angelic_Lapras_King commented on Nintendo's Official UK Store Opens Pre-Orders ...:

Snapped up the 3 pack Amiino with game and shirt that'll actually fit me. Not just doing it later like I did the last lot.

Still, game plus 3 Amiibo and free shirt for £62 is not too bad...even if I have to shell out an extra £22 for Jigglypuff and Greninja eventually.... T.T



Angelic_Lapras_King commented on Review: Mario Kart DS (Wii U eShop / DS):

@Beau_Skunk Yeah, RPGs are more popular in Japan at least, so there was a fair amount of money to be made from that (There's even a 3D Classics of the first Final Fantasy), but then the SE games did quite fairly late in the Wii VC's life, so it could still occur provided Nintendo NX does not make them just wait for the next console to release the games or whatnot....



Angelic_Lapras_King commented on Game Freak's GBA Title Drill Dozer Rated By Th...:

@Barely_Able Probably not that long. Remember, there are only nearly 400 N64 games and when you take out licensed games and publishers either not around anymore or do not support the VC, it's much less (The Wii had a grand total of 20 N64 games in its lifetime) so those will be spread out a bit. As for DS, yeah there are hundred more but I'm sure 3rd parties are in the considering and preparation stage as to what DS games they'll bring to the VC (Not to mention we have zero word on if any 3rd Party Wii games will arrive on the eShop.)

And heck, since Konami have been a keen VC supporter and even brought over the PC Engine to Japanese VC, I really REALLY hope they bring the Turbografx to the VC sooner rather then later.....



Angelic_Lapras_King commented on Talking Point: What We Expect from Nintendo Di...:

Bah, no VC talk. Both Japan and Europe have nothing scheduled this week for VC games. Maybe we'll see those DS games promised last year? N64 might turn its 64 bit head for Wii U, GBA for the 3DS (Lord knows the 3DS VC needs to breath new life, Japan has had barely any new 3DS VC games since May.), Turbografx for everywhere outside of Japan, and god forbid, perhaps Gamecube?

Lots to talk about there, even if Nintendo just announce the next lot of original Wii VC games....
