Wii Shop Thread: ***FINAL FANTASY 3 IS OUT ON THE VC***

With the exception of TMNT, I imagine they'll all transfer over to Wii U. I doubt Nintendo will make an account-based system though, as there isn't one for the eShop.

Nintendo just needs to push their online shop more, and that's how they'll get more digital goods. In addition, they need an account system. It's the main reason why sales on WSC stopped because people ran into the issue of their systems dying and they couldn't transfer them over to a new system.


That and they saw the sales on SMB All Stars and wondered "hey, I think we're onto something here, cha-ching".
The CAG motto: "Maybe you'll luck out and get the game during a sale before it sells out, maybe not, that's the life of a CAG. Luck of the draw. And timing is everything."

If only they would actually release alot of their classic catalog as ______ All Stars, I don't think people would complain as much.

I wouldn't complain.

Hell, I thought the $30 rerelease of SMB All-stars was cool mostly because of the fancy packaging. I realize it's just a rom on a disc but I never thought we'd see that much.

New game choices up for Club Nintendo. The only VC choice is Majora's Mask for 150 coins and the only Wiiware choice is Dr. Mario Online... RX? It's 100 coins. Both through Jan. 31.

As many of you know, black ops 2 is plaid with bugs, lag etc which many people have been suffering including me.

Whoa! I have 230 coins from I don't even remember when. And you're saying I can get games with them? Sweet!

How long have they been giving away games for coins? What did they give away in the past?

Thanks for the info!

Awww, crap. They had Super Mario Kart and Fluidity last month. Ah well. Still, very happy with Majora's Mask. I've been meaning to go back and play that one again. There was one fairy I never found in the Water palace and it's been nagging me for a long, long time.

Frankly I would like to see "SoulBlazer", "Terranigma" and the "7th Saga" games. Of all the games NOT to include yet "Terranigma" seems a no brainer as it was translated into English but just never got a release here.

Went ahead and downloaded it. Still have 4000 points left thanks to that Pepsi promotion a year plus back. Waiting for Retro City Rampage.

How does Last Blade play? Considering that the other ports of the game were based on the Neo Geo CD version, that has good music but crappy load times, this must be based on the MVS version right?

Donkey Kong Country 1-3 is gone from the Virtual Console. Nice of Nintendo to tell us ahead of time.
Also being removed from the Europe Store. No word on why this happened. Can anyone think of any Donkey Kong anniversary coming up? http://www.highdefdi...l_Console/10566

I have all 3 on the VC so I'm good. It does seem strange though.

I would've at least grabbed the first one if I knew they were going away.

Although if they show up in a compilation, I'll be thrilled beyond belief.

I'm calling it... HD re-makes of all 3 NES versions, plus original arcade version that appeared in DK64... and as an added bonus, you can download the GB 100 level version if you register your game with Club Nintendo. ;)

I thought I remember someone saying that this may have happened before (perhaps with DKC, perhaps some other first/second party games) where the issue was that something had to be negotiated regarding the license or something else legal related.

I could see the compilation route as well.

Probably would have grabbed at least DKC if I had known about them being taken down.

Is there currently a Wii U version of this thread?

Any thread similar to the PSN/XBLA threads but for Wii U?

There is no licensing issues with the DKC games though. Nintendo owns everything about them. I've been told this first hand. It's more likely they were taken down because they look completely awful now.

And no, there is no Wii U eShop thread...yet.

I recently heard that it could be from licensing stuff they have to do with Rare/MS due to including the games on Wii U, they had to redo the licenses and takes them off Wii until that happens. That they have to license something that has to do with it despite Nintendo owning all of DKC entirely. Maybe just the fact that the name Rareware is included.

It's unfortunate that we cannot put in here trades for Wii points because although you have the proper folder for that, what's the point of doing so where there isn't a thread to trade Wii points. I mean you have Club Nintendo code, Wii game and Wii U game trade threads and you can post them but it would be easier to list one instead of having it scattered and by the way, both Microsoft and Sony has their points trade thread, so why not Nintendo points trade thread.

Anyways, the games released over the years by Nintendo were all right and still have a lot of fun.

Damn, I wish I'd known last year that SimCity for SNES was going to be taken down from the VC. Always intended to pick it up at some point, but apparently it was pulled from the store in January. :(

I am a little confused about the Wii U as far as the Virtual Console games. Are all the games released on the VC for the Wii available to download on the Wii U? I am thinking of picking up a Wii U and I'd love to grab Ocarina of Time to start off with.

Sadly no. The Wii and WiiU have 2 different libraries for their own Virtual Consoles.

Right, but just to be clear, you can still get those Wii VC games on your Wii U - but it has to be in Wii mode with separate Wii Points money on the Wii shop.

Any suggestions for pickups? I've got like 2300 points saved on my Wii, so I'm figuring I blow them all and then transfer my content to the Wii U.
