Yeah it's a travesty. How Nintendo ever let Rare be bought by Microsoft, and not snatching them up for themselves, is beyond comprehension. Imagine how many more awesome games that could have been created for GameCube, Wii, Wii-U, DS, 3DS! Not to mention all the classics missing on the VC: Wizards & Warriors, RC Pro-Am, Battletoads, Banjo-Kazooie, Killer Instinct, Blast Corp, Jet Force Gemini, Perfect Dark, Conker....

Yeah I made the mistake once of glancing at the list of Wii-U VC games that are available in Japan. I bought a lot of the games they put on the Wii VC.

I'd be interested in knowing how much it roughly costs a company to put one of their games on the VC. Seems that with the vast number of games that were never released in the west, that there would be a great opportunity for sales.

Cool article. Though these games are bad (unbelievably so when compared to other Zelda games), he seems to have done decently with what he had to work with and time-table. I have actually seen one of these games in action, must've been the Link one. The animation looks decent, aside from the atrocious depictions of Zelda and Link. The platforming parts look pretty enough but are definitely not very fun.

Duck Hunt Dog?! Awesome! Never understood why Nintendo hasn't ever released light gun games on VC/eshop? The Wiimote pointer is perfect for them. Duck Hunt, Hogan's Alley, Gumshoe, Barker Bill's Trick Shooting, Yoshi's Safari, Battle Clash....

I'm starting to get excited about Amiibo. If they do it right, they can blast by Disney Infinity and Skylanders. Using the figures in multiple games will be awesome, once again, if they put the effort into it. Imagine being able to add Link/Samus/Captain Falcon to Mario Kart as DLC using the figures! Plus they could also develop a sandbox game for it similar to Disney Infinity where all the different characters can be used.

@Mega719 Yeah I was just teasing. But I don't think a remake on Wii-U would do any damage to sales of the new entries coming out on 3DS. Not too mention it would go a long way into getting more attention to the Wii-U. But hopefully we'll at least get a Pokemon Snap or Colosseum/Stadium.

Man. Dirty trick. Vegas Stakes is the game in that list I don't have yet, and they put the Wii version on there even though it is on Wii-U VC! Oh well I guess I'll still be getting the game for $1.49 upgrade discount instead of the full $7.99.
