Why not go the route of DLC for older games?

For example...
Play in the All-Stars skins for the classic Super Mario Bros. games
DLC racers for Super Mario Kart
Play as Peach in Super Mario Bros
Fusion Suit in Super Metroid
Play as Zelda rescuing Link in A Link To The Past
Additional levels (could apply to many games)
Mirror mode for SM64
Online leaderboards for Duck Hunt, Donkey Kong and other arcade style games

I think if the games were seen as truly digital versions of the games rather than straight emulations, there would be more hype and incentive to buy.

Look at the iOS and Android versions of the classic Sonic games and that's the kind of thing I'd like Nintendo to embrace on the NX.

Most would be pallet swaps or at most new sprites or BGM.

I'd have thought they are releasing the less sought after titles between now and December to capitalise on releasing the ones people want after Christmas when there are a lot more Wii U consoles in the wild.

I expect the remaining NES and SNES titles from the Wii VC to be released between now and Christmas. Link To The Past will almost certainly come alongside A Link Between Worlds. SMB3 may well come alongside 3D World. Then after Christmas it will be N64 and above, or previously unreleased NES and SNES titles. It makes more business sense, as this is also when there is a small drought of games.

DKC SNES probably won't be back until DKC:TF releases. Super Mario Kart alongside Mario Kart 8.
