Post Virtual Console
I'm making a topic to discuss the idea of the virtual console, and not specific games.

That said, I emailed Nintendo asking for N64/GameCube games and got this:

Quote:
Thanks for sharing your comments with us. At this time, we have no information on what will or won't be included in Wii U's Virtual Console, but I’ll make sure that what you said about adding Nintendo 64 and Nintendo GameCube games will be forwarded, so your feedback will be heard. While I can’t guarantee that we’ll make the type of changes you suggested, we do take all feedback into consideration.


In a different email, I requested the following games:
NES
Bugs Bunny Crazy Castle
Bomberman
Chip & Dale's Rescue Rangers
Ducktales
Nobunaga's Ambition
Wizards and Warriors
Dragon Warrior (Quest)
Dragon Warrior (Quest) 2
Dragon Warrior (Quest) 3
Dragon Warrior (Quest) 4
Double Dragon 3
Battle Toads & Double Dragon the Ultimate Team
North and South
Rampart
Adventures of LoLo 3
Bump N Jump
Contra
Little Nemo Dream Master
Marble Madness
Paperboy
RC Pro Am
Spy Vs Spy

SNES
Super Bomberman
Super Bomberman 2
Mortal Kombat 2
Mortal Kombat 3 (Ultimate)
Yoshi's Island (Super Mario World 2)
Killer Instinct

N64
Goldeneye
Perfect Dark
Donkey Kong 64
Mario Party 1
Mario Party 3

I can dream can't I? These are games that never made it to the Wii Virtual console, and I hope 1 or more will be available on Wii U. All of these games I would buy immediately. Lots of awesome memories and would gladly replay these titles on Wii U. Definitely welcome any comments regarding games you'd like to see, or consoles or anything. My complete list also includes quite a few that I've already purchased, most of which I will upgrade.

Ahh... it's such a shame that many of the games you listed are licensed, and would be a nightmare for Nintendo to re-release. I still have my cartridge copy of DuckTales, but my NES has died on me recently :(

Wow Ducktales AND Contra never made it to the virtual console? Those were landmark games back in the NES days. Maybe it's more Capcom's and Konami's doing?

Ducktales is Disney, and I'm surprised Contra never made it. Super C is on there, but not the original. Maybe it will be added soon when the VC goes up to full power next month.

I think this is the reason I still have a nes,snes, and n64. Cause I know some of the older games will not be put onto virtual console.

I still have some GBA that I will never part with for this reason alone, yes it's nice some games are available via virtual download, "But" not all games are available even some imports are not availabe.

I would like to try the first released version of pokemon and some mario's never released in the U.S, but I don't think it will ever be available on virtual console no affraid not.

I can dream now can't I?

And who had it listed in the first post??

I listened to the theme at least fifty times over that weekend and so excited. Easily in my top 10 NES games.

The Wii's VC seemed virtually unsupported. Titles were barely ever released, even for titles they did have the publishing rights for.

My hopes are not high on the a Wii U's will be any better.

The first 2-3 years they had like 4-5 a week, then when Wiiware launched it was basically killed off. We were lucky to get 1 a month. It picked up towards the Wii U launch with 1 a week or so, but still was basically dead. I understand that the Wii one is dead now since all focus is on the Wii U. The Wii U one should be coming faster, not sure why it's only 1-2 a week. There's still many that can be updated, and even whole consoles can be added as well (N64, GameCube).
