Many are saying that we should expect around 3 VC gamecube games at launch

I have a YouTube channel you should check out. https://www.youtube.com/user/badattitude3dXrandum?&ab_channel=ShadowForksGames

My favorite Nintendo game is Batman V. Superman

My main worry with it is,it'll get a bunch of the expected games at the start then it'll fade away with only the odd random release every few months.They should just dump all the NES/SNES/64 they've already released on there and concentrate on only Gamecube,GBA and hopefully Sega consoles and Neo Geo for the weekly downloads.It'll be depressing if it goes back to the old "What will you be downloading this week?' "Megaman - 45%" and NA users complaining about not having SMB 3 yet.

@OorWullie We all know they're gonna drip feed the same games over again. Let's just pray they have more than 1 a week, no break weeks, regional coordination and don't spend so long on bad obscure games (good obscure games on the other hand are more than welcome).

I'm ready to experience this:

... on a handheld device. I'm playing now and man, I love me some GameCube.

@OorWullie
Wii U didn't even launch with a Virtual Console service, and neither did 3DS. Despite their predecessor (Wii) setting the bar back in the mid 2000's.

So the fact Switch will have the VC service in place day one is a good sign. The fact we'll be seeing not one, not two but three VC games day one is an even better sign. The fact those 3 will be GameCube games? Well shoot, if that's not a sign that Nintendo knows what the fans want and intends to deliver... then I don't know what is...

@IceClimbers @JaxonH I think a good system would be if they were to release 1 game from each console on a fortnightly basis.For example

1st week of the month have one game from each
NES
SNES
GBA
N64
Gamecube

then the next week have one game from each
Master System
Megadrive
Dreamcast
Neo Geo
Arcade

and repeat...

20 new titles every month with each game getting its chance to shine as the representative of its console for 2 weeks.They could keep this system running for ages.Each title can be bought individually or as a bundle which will save you money.Or even better a subscription service where you get access to them all but only for say 30 days.Every week there would be something to look forward to,not knowing what you're going to get.The Wii in its prime had 4 or 5 VC most weeks so it can be done.Sounds good to me.

@OorWullie
Sounds like a good system.

Honestly though, I just want GameCube on Switch. I mean, I want the rest, but I'm in no rush to get anything else. But GC... I want it all on a portable device. Portable GC has been my dream for so long

If the VC rumors are true, then having GameCube games on the VC would be a good thing for the Switch. And apparently a different company is handling the VC, so that could possibly mean games not being darker than they originally were and no input lag. (I still don't know why Nintendo never released GameCube games on the Wii U when there is no emulation needed as shown by homebrew).

These are the games I want to see on GC VC:

Super Mario Sunshine
Metroid Prime
Metroid Prime 2
Pokemon Colosseum
Pokemon XD: Gale of Darkness
Mario Kart: Double Dash
Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door
Wario World

@Bolt_Strike: Wario World in portable form would be so cool. I know it's not a great Wario game, but it's one of my favorite GC games because it's so crazy fun, and it's special to me because it was my first Wario game!

I also want to see Star Fox Adventures, Star Fox Assault, Kirby: Air Ride, all of the Mario sports games, and Mario Party 4-7. Could Pac-Man World 2 be possible?

Ooh yeah, I'd love to see Super Mario Strikers too.

I hope Super Mario Sunshine is indeed one of the first gamecube games, I was hoping for an HD version but I'll take what I can get. I would love to see MK: Double Dash down the road. I'm wondering if Gamecube VC is indeed on the Switch, if it will have save states? It would make getting the Golden kart in Double Dash so much easier.

It will be awesome to be able to play the Wii trilogy with the joy cons on the go! Can finally retire all my Wii branded accessories @JaxonH

@G0dlike
Not sure if they'll release Wii VC or not. It would have to be playable with Joycons motion, so GameCube would be better suited to normal play portably without taking the Joycons out and using like Wiimote

I think I'd rather see more HD upgrades to Gamecube games. They're just not going to come to the VC.

Edgey, Gumshoe, Godot, Sissel, Larry, then Mia, Franziska, Maggie, Kay and Lynne.

I'm throwing my money at the screen but nothing happens!

I didn’t realize there was a topic just for GameCube Virtual Console. I’ll copy my posts from the Switch Virtual Console topic.

I think this is worth mentioning. Apparently, despite the rumors, neither the Joy-Cons nor Pro Controller have analogue triggers. All triggers are digital. Now maybe they could still be pressure sensitive, but good luck holding out hope on that one.

I think this casts GameCube Virtual Console into doubt, but we'll see.

@DylanMcGrann We still have 1 hope, the Gamecube adapter. If the rumor of a Smash Bros 4 port is true, then they'll HAVE to either make the adapter compatible or make a new one for the Switch. For a lot of the hardcore fans, that was the deal breaker in regards to jumping onto buying Smash 4 for Wii U and they went ahead to add GC controller support. The hub does have 2 USB ports at the front don't forget, not to mention the endless waiting for the last 3 amiibo.

And if they're doing that, they may as well make GC downloads work with the adapter. Sure, you'll need a GC controller, but in the days of the Wii you needed to buy a Classic Controller for the SNES and other VC games or indeed, an GC controller. Won't effect Switch controller sales, not if Smash 4 and GC games are the only games you can use a GC controller for..... XD

@Angelic_Lapras_King The adapter could be part of a GameCube Virtual Console, but Nintendo is very unlikely to lock Virtual Console titles behind an accessory, especially for a system that's meant to be portable.

I think our best bet is some solution around the pressure sensitivity of analog controllers on a title-by-title basis. That might mean having to manually rework some games, and some games outright won't work or work very well. I'm thinking along the lines of the various screen options for the DS Virtual Console on the Wii U. A set of options like that in the settings but for trigger behaviors could be one solution. Though I don't really have any good ideas on that front.

Maybe something like:
Option 1) pressing the triggers always equals 100% pressure
Option 2) pressing the triggers eases from 0% to 100% pressure over 1.5 seconds
Option 3) pressing the triggers eases from 0% to 100% pressure over 4 seconds
Option 4) pressing the triggers and tilting the controller using the gyroscope to change pressure

That's about the best I can think of. I need to go back and play some GameCube games (I still own a good number of them). I don't quite remember how integral to each game the analog triggers were.

Without analog triggers, I think the prospects are quite bad for a GameCube Virtual Console. But we'll see my hopes aren't 100% squashed—only 98%!

@Whitewatermoose Not really. All Nintendo has said is NES and SNES games will be available, and that those who pay for the online service will be able to play a selection of those games each month and will also be able to play those games with online multiplayer for the first time. They've said they plan to announce more about the Virtual Console and online features at a later date. That's all we know.
